  1. Thanks again. This ones taking off on eBay since I discovered the mods. Daft not to have noticed then before of course. Peter
  2. Okay, trying to create frustration with just a picture of the headstock It's working
  3. Absolutely stunning basses and what a great creation in your self build too. Very classy
  4. So the 330's, the better pickups weren't SD by any chance? Failing that it seems 315 not 325 then. Thanks for the help.
  5. My Bass Collection 5 Jazz is presently for sale on eBay. [url="http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=012&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=220112079429&rd=1&rd=1"]http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...p;rd=1&rd=1[/url] I had a query as to the model number and removed the rear cover to see if it was under there. Lo and behold, no model number but I noticed that the pre-amp is a Seymour Duncan, as are the pickups. It appears to be a 91 bass too according to the serial number. Does anyone know the model No? The Seymour Duncan pre is Velcro'd to the rear cover which presumably means it's a retro fitted item together with the pups?
  6. OG It's the former, Brune Street. Edited: Oops they're both in Brune Street, it's the latter one. I know that I may appear laid back with this but I'm giving the BC a chance to get the amp, preferably a new one, to me soonest. There is still a way ahead as I see it albeit a seriously delayed one. If this doesn't work out then I'll be acting along the lines you suggest. Maybe my fairly polite post will come to their attention and prompt them into chasing it up. There's been little evidence than my many phone calls have achieved the same
  7. I'd just like to add a big thank you for all the work you guys have put in. If I'm honest I'm a bit fed up with all the moving around and losses involved but you guys are in the driving seat. So, did I say thank you
  8. I hope that I'm in the right section here, if not I expect I'll be shunted. I added this post to the Thomann thread currently running and thought that it probably deserves it's own spot. So quoted directly: PeteD said: [quote]I haven't had any experience with returns though [Thomann], which can always sour a relationship.[/quote] My Yamaha BBT500H head packed up about 5 days from the year since I bought it. I found the returns bit of Thomann's site and emailed them. I got a reply about 2 or 3 days later saying it was being dealt with. A few days after this I had a DML note through the door saying they'd visited to collect and no-one was in. I re-arranged and it was collected on time. Two or so weeks passed and another email arrived saying it was done. A couple of days later the amp arrived all fixed. Great service compared with my present situation. I bought a new Markbass Little Mark II from the Bass Centre over 2 months ago. It took a while for them to get it in stock but arrived safely just over a week later. I set up the amp as per the manufacturers instructions and it basically, to cut a long story short, 'fizzled' and died. Spoke to BC about returns and discovered that I had to do it off my own back and claim postage afterwards (job still to do). I have to make all the play with the Bass Centre, I call them for info. The staff have been good to talk too but with one exception every time that they have said they'd call me back they haven't. There seemed to be some confusion as to whether the Importer had the amp as the Bass Centre couldn't fix it (I actually wanted and expected a new replacement). I spoke to a guy at the Importers and he was rude and defensive. It seems that my new amp, bought over 2 months ago should now be at the Importers, where they will either repair it or replace it. When? I've no idea, maybe it'll turn up one day. Maybe it's still sat in the shop at BC, gathering dust awaiting collection? I'm still using my BBT and I've almost forgotten I'm supposed to own a new, reliable clean sounding LM II. Contrast this is all I would ask. And BC, if you're privy to this post you could consider having a system for returns a la Thomann instead of the very haphazard one now in place.

  10. I've used them several times and twice very recently, they've been superb, even when returning an amp 5 days from its end of warranty. Would recommend.
  11. Many thanks to you guys. Here's to the future
