  1. There are three guys who post a fair bit on the Fretboard - lamf68, rexter and SCRelics. I haven't personally used any of them yet but they get consistently rave reviews. lamf68 - https://www.facebook.com/rendallsrestorations?fref=ts rexter - https://rexterguitars.co.uk/ SCRelics - https://screlics.co.uk/ I don't know if they count as cost effective but you will get a quality finish.
  2. Aaah. Got it. Nice. I'm using part of my birth date for mine. Good to make it personal.
  3. That is lovely. Elegant, clever, and says it it needs to in the most minimal way.
  4. I really like that. I don't get the references but aesthetically it comes across as stylised industrial, functionality as design, if that makes any sense? It's not something I've seen on guitars before, which always appeals, and it makes me think of the philosophy behind the logo on Nash guitars and the design of Free the Tone pedals without being in any way derivative of them. Apologies for probably overthinking it massively 😁 but I'm currently obsessing over logo idea for some partscasters that are nearing completion (if the clear coat ever dries! 😱) and, well, lockdown.
  5. Wow, that's quality work. Not particularly to my taste in those instances, but that's not the issue. Really good stuff.
  6. Black passive Thunder I was the first bass I ever played. I've always considered them to be really solid basses with a nice thud and a lovely warm Ready-Brek glow of nostalgia.
  7. Just sold some stuff to Greg and it was a pleasure. Prompt payment. A positive and helpful chap - he even set up a feedback thread for me. Much appreciated, Mike
  8. Check out Alegree https://www.alegree.co.uk/ He's very active on the fretboard forum and his pickups are held in high esteem over there. I've got a Texan Dustdevil tele bridge and a Sea Smoke P90 neck in my Fano type build and they are truly excellent. Great clarity and definition, tons of bite but never shrill, lovely flutey warmth from the P90. His best pickups are his handwound custom shop ones which are pretty reasonable, but he also does a more budget 'Old Time' range that are wound elsewhere to his exacting specs. The PAF replicas, in particular, are getting rave reviews on the fretboard although I haven't tried them myself. Well worth a look.
  9. I'll add to the chorus - definitely report. I can't stand that kind of behaviour on ebay. It's happened to me a few times and I've always reported it.
  10. BOTH SOLD Now with free shipping. Scratchplate free with the bridge if you want it Happy to consider any interesting trades for 6 string (non bass) stuff. Payment by PPG if that's okay with everyone. Also listed on The Fretboard Forum (and I've been around a lot longer on there in case I seem a bit new) Hipshot 4 String B Style Bass Bridge - £40 now £30 Satin Finish 19mm string spacing 4 mounting holes UPC: 00840000916983 SKU: 5B400BC-750 https://hipshotproducts.com/products/4-string-b-style-bass-bridge Bought second-hand but not installed as it’s not a direct retrofit for a Jazz bass. Oops! Looks in excellent nick and is a quality chunky thing. ----- Venom Jazz Bass scratch plate - £10 posted or free with the bridge White Pearloid Very lightly aged - yellowed at the edges and around the screw holes Cheers folks
  11. Thanks to everyone for the sage advice. Special thanks to @Reggaebass for pointing out the Squier. Just got it.
