  1. You’re welcome to call in Enjoy those holidays.
  2. I've eased the price down to £1250. No trades. A note, the volume pot has been previously replaced with the correct spec MEC pot but it has a push/pull switch that's not connected as this bass didn't have the active/passive option originally. Peter
  3. I've owned this amp for about 8 months. I'm asking for what I paid and it comes with a Gator bag. I now have 3 amps, a lovely Fafner 1 EBS and an HD350. I bought the Laney as a lightweight alternative and was all planning to try it in anger a few months back. Then something called Covid-19 appeared. It has been put through it's paces at home in the 'shed' and has been most un Laney like it terms of it's performance and features. It's been excellent. I am rapidly heading towards retirement and I need to streamline my gear and finances especially as there is little realistic prospect of me gigging again. Please note that I'm not putting this up at an optimistic price while quietly expecting a considerable drop. It was originally listed previously at £320. I'm happy to post at cost including insurance but would prefer more local meet up/collection/trial at my abode in a socially distanced manner. The photo's are Tobie's as they reflect the amp fully. https://www.laney.co.uk/products/nexus-nexus-sls-hybrid-tube-head A great Dood review of the SL
  4. I have a bit of a thing about old Warwick Thumbs. I've owned 3 and my ACG Uber spec Finn had woods inspired by a Thumb. I bought this bass in September last year to ease my desire to own one as a collector, to be played occasionally in the 'shed'. It is as seen in the photos and the trussrod works fine. I've replaced the body straplock button as the original had worn out (this has been a players bass for many years). The bass/treble tone pot was stiff and I bought a new MEC replacement. The original freed up with Servisol switch cleaner so the MEC pot is included. The frets have been cleaned and there is plenty of life there. Weight is just North of 10ibs and with a Comffort style strap it balances just fine. But enough of the technical stuff. It is a thing of beauty to those afflicted and it growls. I have priced £50 more than what I paid to take into account the MEC pot, strap locks and a generic hard case. I can include a Comffort strap if the buyer needs one (size sm/md). Photos are from Phil who I bought it from as they are both great and fully reflect the condition of this classic. I would prefer collection. I'm happy to meet up a reasonable distance away and it can be checked out at my home, socially distanced of course. I can post at cost and that will include insurance. Reason for sale? I'm retiring at the end of the month, Greene King IS that old! I need to streamline my finances and become financially responsible before it's too late. It'll leave me 4 basses that with the restrictions I'm still not using to any effect. Feel free to throw questions in my direction. I'm even happy to have folk tell me 'if only it was a 5 string, it's too heavy for me, if only my car didn't need a new warp drive controller' etc. Live long and prosper!
  5. I sold my Boss VB-1 to Keir and the process couldn't have been more straightforward. We've met before in the dim and distant past and it was great to catch up again.
  6. Mahoosive drop to £50. Trades considered.
  7. I found the perfect twin eventually ..... a 2nd Accugroove Tri-112L.
  8. Thanks Guys I did check the string wasn't twisted at the bridge too. I'd had them on for a few months of practice at home and at volume with the guys I jam with. I'll keep them handy and may well use them again if that's the tone I'm looking for. They may settle in a bit more.
  9. I got another set of Dunlop flats (45-105) after some trepidation. I was worried that they would adversely affect the tone of the Lakland and would therefore be a waste of money. Now they've settled in I can update. I'm really pleased and it was the right thing to do. Great tone, just a little more sparkle in a flats way. Completely even response across the strings with no hint of a 'thud' on the E string. Original tone is still there in spades. I guess that they aren't 'old school' but for me they are the perfect compromise. If anyone wants a set of low usage La Bella Deep Talkin' strings, same gauge methinks.... Peter
  10. Bought a Laney Nexus SLS amp from Tobie. Excellent near new condition and extremely well packaged.

    STRAY - UK Tour

    Jeez, I missed the other band due to the font confusing old eyes. Groundhogs! My absolute favourite band back in the day. I guess Tony McPhee isn’t up to it nowadays.

    STRAY - UK Tour

    Wow. I didn't know that they were still going. One of my favourite bands of the early 70's before I joined the RN and took myself way from 'all that'.
