  1. Don't suppose you'd be able to give me the measurements for the distance between the mounting holes for the neck/body join please mate? Want to see if this will fit my non-Fender body without refilling and redrilling. Cheers.
  2. Very true - I'm no tech myself, so as pre-made as I can get is best. Don't mind drilling screw holes, adding shims etc but beyond that is not for me. I might grab myself one of these cheaper necks and just see how it goes to be honest
  3. Thanks so much! I was hoping someone would have had decent experiences with cheaper necks, it'd be good to free up some more money for hardware and pups.
  4. I'm planning to mod my first bass, a cheap p copy, to make it more usable. It'll be a more classic p bass to go along with my modern, active Sandberg and my fretless. Replacement necks are totally new to me, though. I definitely need one (the neck on this bass is dire) but no idea what to go for. My instinct is to avoid far Eastern eBay options, unless anyone happens to have positive experiences? Outside of that, my choices seem to be a fender neck, an allparts neck, a WD neck or one of the slightly cheaper options from northwest guitars. Any input on any of these options is highly appreciated.
  5. Probably something between the two if I'm honest - I look after my basses, but I'm not precious about dents and dings, and it will be used on all my recordings and gigs for sure.
  6. The music shop near me does have a non-export aerodyne for about 990 quid - might try that out.
  7. I'm not much of an amp-crazy guy! My Ashdown Studio 15 delivers plenty of oomph for monitoring and rehearsal purposes, and it's DIs/FOH all the way for me! However, the savings would certainly feed other forms of GAS - probably keyboard/guitar, or maybe even strings! (600=10 sets of TI jazz flats=basically a lifetime supply, right??)
  8. Yeah, fair enough! If I did go for a used American, I'd have my eye open for something more recent, but having the S1 switch and not using it wouldn't bother me - right now I have a Sire P7 with 3 band EQ plus mid sweep and I just run it in passive!
  9. that sounds like a decent day out to me!
  10. Ah yeah, I'd seen Scott Devine mention an MV at some point, they look great! I might head down to BD for a day like you say, although if I'm going then I'm buying - it's about a 2 hour drive!
  11. True - resale value doesn't massively bother me, but it could always be needed in unforeseen circumstances. Definitely tempted by the Am Performer - if I can get something I like stock, then I'm very happy and that'd be my top option.
  12. Ahh nice, good to know! I'm going to have fun on Sandberg's website tonight for sure!
  13. Thanks for the tips, much appreciated! I've seen a few of the S-1 basses around, but only ever heard negative things about the S1 circuits, so that throws me off a bit.
  14. As much as I like it, it's not quite what I'd want out of an all-round bass. The pups are a little on the tame side for my liking (can be replaced of course), but preamp removal means sourcing a fresh pickguard, which has to be custom cut as nowhere makes replacements. Same issue with the tuners, which aren't ideal - there's no drop in replacement, so it's a case of filling and re-drilling, a lot of extra work when basses like the Mexi Fenders have an abundace of drop-in parts available.
  15. I love the look of the Sandbergs, and the pups sound amazing! Can you order them direct from Sandberg to the UK? I can't find a passive model to my liking on any UK shop sites, so I wonder if you can order direct?
