  1. @Merton That is gorgeous!
  2. If you can find a Gipsy Rose they are well worth giving a try, they make a good starting point for a 32" scale project bass, they do come up on ebay once in a while, I got both of mine for about £110 each. Not sure if they will ship to the UK https://www.rondomusic.com/grb1kcpb.html I might try taking a heat gun to my orange/yellow one to see what the wood is like underneath the finish.
  3. I bought theses for a project Epi SG guitar that never got off the ground, they are new and were only fitted for a few minutes using block connectors, they have never been soldered. £22.00 delivered or you can collect them from SE26 for a couple of quid less. PICS HERE Info from Vanson: Vanson '59 Alnico V Chrome PAF style Humbucker Set for Gibson ® Epiphone ®* Based on the classic P.A.F. designs of old with a modern angle. A classic pickup, offering timeless tone and subtle warmth with a full, even response. Capable of grinding, punchy Blues & Rock, and lovely rolled-off cleans. Utilising an AlNiCo magnet will always produce a more open and dynamic tone, than can be found with typical ceramic magnets. We’ve chosen AlNiCo V magnets to provide a more powerful, attacking tone with a full bottom-end. This set has a balanced output, and avoids the pitfalls of many 'over-wound' pickups that can mask a guitars natural character. A classic all-rounder with a quality of tone you’d expect to hear on Custom Shop instruments, at a realistic price-point. Perfect for your upgrade or custom build project. Magnet: AlNiCo V, Resistance: Bridge 8.30k, Neck 7.30k ( +/- 10%), Brass-backed & Wax-potted 4 wires for coil-split, if required, or can be installed as a regular 2-wire humbucker.
  4. Generic Stingray style 5 string bridge with screws. Generic Stingray style control plate, wired with 2 tones and one volume pot for some reason, I can't find the screws for this. £14.00 delivered to the UK mainland or you can collect them from SE26 for less. PICS HERE
  5. Another smooth and pleasant transaction with Johann who now owns my medium scale MIJ Squier Precision.
  6. I lusted after that bass when it was up for sale but in no way could I justify buying it! Seen Norman play quite a few times over the last decade or so, always a joy. I might go to Margate Rocks in September where both Wilko Johnson and The Blockheads are playing, sadly not on the same day.
  7. Why not, then I can share my 33" 5'er 🙂
  8. There is THIS short scale Fender Jazz on Ebay at the moment, it's a rare thing.
  9. Welcome to BC, my sister lives in Lincoln just outside of Christchurch.
  10. Really! there was a black sparkly one on there back in November that went for about £60, I was tempted but as I'm not playing these days it would have been stupid to buy it 😃
  11. There was a Gypsy Rose on Ebay over Christmas I think, not sure if it's still there, if you don't mine the girlie colours then they are well worth giving a try, I have two! That Yamaha 5 string is very nice @therealting
  12. I'm going to take them for spin with an octaver setting on my Zoom B1on and a Jazz Bass tomorrow.
