  1. I managed to acquire a second-hand one of these (SB-1000) in the last few weeks. It's from 1982 and, although the case looks it, the bass itself is in quite ridiculously amazing condition. You'd be hard pressed to find a display model of anything currently available in any guitar shop in better condition than this 40-year-old beauty. One thing though, which I wouldn't mind any thoughts on. The red LED flashes continuously. I've read on TalkBass that this is normal, but videos I've watched clearly show a solid red light with no flashing. Can anyone throw any light(!) on this?
  2. Would be interested to hear any comments on this. Just bought a Spector Legend Neck-through here on Basschat with Aguilar DCB pickups and Aguilar OBP-2 Preamp. Lovely condition. Only thing is there are a couple of issues. 1. I've looked at a lot of videos of Spectors with the 2-volume knobs plus Bass boost/cut and Treble boost/cut control knobs. The weird thing is that, on the videos, the bass boost/cut knob is the one further back, closest to the bridge (the left most knob of the diamond of knobs) as you look at the guitar face on. But on the one I have the bass boost/cut knob is the one further to the right (at the bottom of the diamond), and it's the treble knob that's closer to the bridge. Has anyone experienced this? 2. Plugging it into my Trace Elliot Elf 10" combo, I get massive interference coming through the amp, unless I turn all the eq controls on the amp to zero and have the gain almost at zero as well. But then there is hardly any volume. Any thoughts?
  3. Yeah, I know a lot of people love the necks on these, but I just can’t get on with it. Jubilee price drop to £1450.
  4. **FINAL PRICE DROP TO £1300 COLLECTED** For sale is an Ibanez Prestige SR5000-OL, made in Japan, 4-string bass. Bought from Andertons in Guildford in May 2022 for almost £2,000, it's a beautiful bass in pristine condition. It was bought on a bit of a whim and I'm not really getting on with the slim Ibanez neck. I have had some La Bella flatwounds fitted, but apart from that it's pretty much untouched since I got it at the beginning of May. It's a real stunner, with amazing versatility, thanks to the Bartolini custom pickups and the 3-band eq. Comes with the hard case, of course, with all the case candy as well. COLLECTION ONLY FROM WINCHESTER, HAMPSHIRE (the value of this bass makes it prohibitive to courier it at a reasonable rate). More photos attached. Here are the full specifications: Body Body Wood: Wenge Top / Wenge Back / African Mahogany Body Body Shape: SR Neck Neck Type: 5pc Wenge/Walnut w/KTS™ TITANIUM Rods Neck Shape: Atlas-4 HP Scale Length: 864mm/34" Fretboard: Wenge / Mother of Pearl & Abalone Oval Lnlay Radius: 305mm Frets: Medium Number of Frets: 24 String Spacing: 19mm Nut: Graph Tech® BLACK TUSQ XL® Electronics Neck Pickup: Bartolini® Custom (Passive) Bridge Pickup: Bartolini® Custom (Passive) Controls: Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-Band EQ w/ EQ Bypass Switch (Passive Tone Control on Treble Pot) & 3-Way Mid Frequency Switch Hardware Bridge: MR5S Bridge Hardware Colour: Gold Miscellaneous String Gauge: .045/.065/.085/.105 Factory Tuning: 1G,2D,3A,4E Case: Hardshell Case
