  1. Paul indulged my weakness for a pretty bird’s eye maple neck and quenched the GAS ... for now! Quick to reply to messages, offered to meet halfway, had a great natter. Would happily buy from again; a real gent.
  2. Now on the Fender Jazz 4 so I’ll let you know how I get on - I didn’t realise how dead my old strings sounded. Initially I thought I’d ordered the wrong lengths as the E string taper appeared to start before the nut when strung through the body. Once tuned up it seats in the nut properly but only just; the other strings are fine. To be fair there was a warning on StringsDirect to measure the existing strings which I ignored!
  3. Now have a box and copious amounts of bubble wrap/air bags so shipping via UPS is available at buyer’s cost. Will be suitably bubble wrapped inside and outside gig bag. Or happy for suggestions/advice from members with shipping experience.
  4. Great, thanks, I’m going to give them a twirl on the jazz. I’m guessing the panto is covid dependent so fingers crossed for you.
  5. How are they holding up? (Or did they?)
  6. Bought a rather lovely bass from Dan. Quick to reply to any questions, super fast shipping, well packaged and mint condition as described. Deal with in confidence. Cheers!
  7. It’s fantastic, love it! The addition of a string has been interesting but forcing me to work on muting. Mightily handsome too! 😍
  8. Currently really enjoying this chap, Vincen García: https://instagram.com/vincen_garcia?igshid=piyb6n32cyxf https://youtube.com/channel/UCJJFJ0_rG5qzHGsCV177GVQ
  9. Three at the moment: Yamaha BB434/BB734/BBP34 Stingray/Sterling H 4 string variations Fender Flea Active Jazz Probably a Fender precision too. As a relatively new player I’d imagine there’s a whole load of awesome I’m not even aware of yet but they are the top of my list at the moment. Would make sense to go and have a play in a shop when/if lockdown eases.
  10. Purchased from this very parish in October 2020 from @haimesy who bought it new. Unfortunately I have only played it briefly a handful of times; uncontrollable GAS and self imposed limit of 3 basses means this is up for sale. Sire U5 short scale bass in colour mint - £300 £280 collected or plus shipping, no offers at present. Excellent condition. Only noticeable marks are a small ding to headstock and a very faint mark near the truss rod adjustment on the mint green edge. Comes with basic gig-bag (doesn't fit great) that was new with the bass. Collection from Orpington BR6 (also possible at my parents’ place in Hendon NW4). Would consider driving to meet somewhere as long as it’s not too far. Postage now available via UPS at buyer’s cost. Appreciate I haven't sold here before so would consider shipping before payment to established members with significant feedback. Also listed on eBay where I have substantial feedback (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224396320932) Specs: Body Material: North American Alder Body Shape: Marcus Miller Small J-Style (Slim Carved Body) Body Color: NT, TS (Flamed Veneer Top), Mint (Solid Color) Neck Wood: Hard Maple Neck Shape: C-Shape Scale: 30” (Short Scale) Fingerboard Material: Hard Maple / Rolled Fretboard Edges Fingerboard Radius: 9.5” Frets: 2.4mm Medium String Nut: Bone Nut, 38mm width Binding: None Inlay: BK Dot Neck Joint: 4-Bolt Steel Square Plate Pickup: Marcus Super PJ Revolution Set Controls: Passive Volume and Tone Control | Volume (Neck PU), Volume (Bridge PU), Tone (Master) Knobs: Modern Black Aluminum Bridge: Marcus Miller Vintage-S Tuning Gear: Premium Open-Gear Hardware Finish: Chrome Pickguard: None
  11. Bought a HX Stomp from Phil. Fast to reply, kept up to date, speedy postage and excellent condition as described. Many thanks!
  12. Thanks @Richard R for the links to the online lessons. I'm having some local one-to-one lessons but always welcome any recommendations or content for development. I used to play the Saxophone in another life and worked through the grades so the theory is buried in there somewhere!
  13. Just bought a rather splendid and beautiful BB435 from Johann. Mint condition as described, speedy comms and he facilitated a pain free, socially-distanced collection. Many thanks!
  14. I blame @TheGreek for bumping adverts I hadn’t seen!
