  1. Yes, I thought the same but just didn't seem right not seeing him with a Status at some point!
  2. Hi all, I was lucky enough to be centre stage front row for Level 42 at Sheffield City Hall last night after keeping hold of the tickets for 2 years. In fact, my seat was bang in front of Mark so I had no problem checking his gear out (not that gear madam!) and was surprised to see him running his old Jaydees through a Mark Bass rig, not a Status or TC in sight all evening. This may seem irrelevant but it surprised me - anyone know why?
  3. I recently acquired a Status S4000. They're not the most desirable model but they're as rare as hen's teeth and I love it. Bought some double ball end Elites and couldn't get them to tune in before I ran out of tension so I emailed Status and Rob sent me several replies to assist. In the end they had some 45-100 strings made up for me as they were out of stock and they are now on the bass and working perfectly. Can't praise Status enough. If I could bring myself round to selling a couple of my collection I'd have no hesitation in ordering a new S2. Which will probably happen soon!! 🤣

  5. Hi, thanks, just been told I'll have it back tomorrow!
  6. Paid by PayPal. My bank has assured me I'll get the money back but that's not the point.
  7. Hi, thanks for that. How would you compare it to other basses you've played? I really love the look of the Betsy and the pup setup, it's got nothing to do with Guy even though he's a favourite of mine!! I've got Fenders, Epiphones, a Warwick, a Musicman and a Lakland so wanting something different. Is the neck a 64 replica? Cheers.
  8. Hi all, Has anyone played the Bass Centre Guy Pratt sig Betsy bass? Are they as good as the come across to be? Cheers.
  9. Hi all, Quick upd : I was contacted by a seller who said he was on the Isle of Wight. Very convincing conversations regarding the bass and his failing health followed with a batch of photos showing a nice walnut faced example. Cut to the chase, I was scammed and I've lost £330 altogether. I don't think they got my details from here as I advertised on a number of sites, but beware of anyone using the name Marlon Sims, email [email protected] and mobile number 07857951972. I've set karma in motion so it's not over yet but please be mindful as I'm not gullible and I got stung. Still looking for an S1000 though!!!
  10. I wish it was that simple! Can't seem to find one anywhere! I thought that there would be a few knocking about but this doesn't seem to be the case. Hopefully I'll get offered 3 and be inundated but I'm not holding my breath. If I could nab one for £200 that would be even sweeter! Cheers.
  11. Hi all, I'm looking to acquire an original Washburn Status S1000 and I cannot find one ANYWHERE!! For some reason they seem to pop up more in the States than here, or maybe it's because they're so good no-one wants to part with them? If you have one or know someone who has and a sale is possible please get in touch. I appreciate that they are up to 40 years old so I'm not expecting a case queen but the better the quality the better the bass and the colour is irrelevant but green or red grain would have me twitching. Drop me a line if you can help. Thanks.
