    P Bass options

    My experience of MIJ Precision basses has been nothing but great so you can’t go far wrong with one of those. New options - lots of good things being said about the Bruce Thomas Profile bass from the Bass Centre.

  3. I know these are rarer than hens teeth. I almost had a fit the last time I collected my SMX after a service and one of them was missing. The shop managed to find it once I’d explained to them that you can’t get them anywhere (they didn’t seem to disagree). A dud spares or repair head may be the best option. 😟
  4. 1964 Hofner Verithin with Bigsby and original receipt of purchase Another of my lovely Hofner guitars that is sat under a bed unused. I have owned this guitar since 1994 and it has barely been played in that time. This guitar is particularly special as it comes complete with its original invoice and receipt of sale from Sherwins of Hanley, Stoke-On-Trent dated January 1965. What’s more it was sold to the Bossons family of Congleton, Cheshire (they of the figurines and wall masks fame). · Cherry finish · Braced Spruce top · Beautiful maple veneered back · Original fitted Bigsby tremolo · Lateral pearloid and tortoiseshell striped fingerboard inlays · Original rectangular metal case pickups used by Hofner between ’63 and ‘67 · Original rotary controls – Two Volume/Two Tone · Original green felt-lined hard case This instrument is in beautiful condition considering its 55 years. You can see that the neck has been off the body at some point in its life prior to my ownership, but it was neatly repaired save for the discolouration of the binding at the heel (many Hofner instruments have suffered this fate at some point due to the animal based glues used at the time of manufacture). The neck is very solid and stable. The original hard case (stencilled with the original owner’s initials) has a few scuffs on it as you can imagine and the leather handle has very recently split leaving it parted from its metal anchor at one end. The hinges and latches themselves all work as they should. Collection from South Yorkshire. Will courier if arranged and paid for by the buyer (UK only). This is purely to ensure that any shipping arrangements satisfy the buyers own insurance requirements.
  5. 1959 Hofner Club 60 Guitar This is a beautiful guitar in excellent condition considering it’s in its 60th year. It has been cossetted in its case for the 28 years I have owned it. · Blond finish · Spruce top · Beautiful maple laminate back and sides · Ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl inlays · Bakelite pickups · Original electrics · Non-truss rod 1959 model · Original rare black German hard case (green felt lined) · Another more modern case will also be supplied (orange fur lined) With its ebony fingerboard and intricate inlay work it’s easy to see why the 60 was the top of the Club range in the late 50’s early 60’s. There are obviously a few small knocks and dinks on the guitar commensurate with its age and there is evidence of a neat repair being carried out to the floating neck at some point prior to my ownership. However everything works as it should and it plays beautifully. The switches all work as intended – if you can get your head around the ‘unique’ Hofner control panel! Collection from South Yorkshire. Will courier if arranged and paid for by the buyer (UK only). This is purely to ensure that any shipping arrangements satisfy the buyers own insurance requirements.

  11. Currently 7 6 basses: 1981 Aria Pro II SB-R80 1983 Aria Pro II SB-R150 (recently acquired and currently out of commission for a near as possible 'back to stock' electrics/pickups refurb) 1991 Status Series 2 headed 2000's Vintage 'Ray clone (been out on loan so long that I may struggle to get it back) 2007 EBMM Sterling 4HH - (soon to be leaving the fold) 2009 Fender Classic Vibe 60's Precision 2018 EBMM Stingray Special 4H Of course, ask me again in six months and all this may have changed! 🙄
  12. I used it a lot on my SMX when playing a Stingray if I felt that the sound was being lost. As you said, I'd just brighten it up as necessary using the EQ balance. Got me out of a few holes actually when struggling to get the right sound in dodgy rooms.
