    Congrats - looks great!
  2. I’ve experienced the same quick turnaround with support queries from Demeter - pre the pandemic though....

  4. Cool! i got a Jazz 4 last year and then ordered a P - should have it in September or thereabouts
  5. Yes, pretty much 'standard' jazz neck - width at nut is 1.5'' see pic below and string spacing is 19 mm (at bridge)
  6. Yeah, Sound Control were a bit of a mess - i used to work close to the big branch at corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road and would often pop in during a lunch break and have a noodle on a bass. Was a bit like a musical instrument supermarket there and staff never took any notice of you picking up a bass to try. Anyways, they used to have a couple of US made Spector NS 5XL's on the wall, priced at £2,250 and i had played one of them a couple of times - very nice it was too! When Sound Control went under the entire stock was sold off via the Bristol branch. I saw the ad online and the US Spector was selling for £999 delivered! I had that sent to me and it was a beauty, still had the hang tags and £2250 price tag attached. I sold it a few years later to a Basschatter named Mr. Hugs who travelled over to London from Germany to collect it. God, there's a good story there too, though I'll save that one for another occasion.
  7. Yeah, great cabs these - I have the 112 version and it’s the best cab I’ve owned
  8. Recently bought a bass from Mark, in what was a nice simple transaction with good comms etc and Mark delivered the bass to my door today! happy to deal with Bridgehouse any day! P
  9. I recently sold a Jazz bass to D.Pal in what was a simple trouble free transaction, with good comms and quick payment. Would be happy to deal with Davide anytime. P
  10. <<<< SOLD >>>> Xotic Jazz Bass 4 string, Trans Blond, in fantastic condition. Built in Japan in July 2010 and factory fitted with Lindy Fralin single coil pickups with wooden covers. Vol, Vol pots with just/pull on vol1 for active passive and push/pull on vol2 for series switch. 3 band Xotic IQ High and mid frequencies dip switched are on rear panel on this model - gives a cleaner look than on the front! 21 fret maple fingerboard Comes with two pick guards , the original white one and the black sparkle one i had made and is currently fitted. I'm really struggling to find a mark on it, testament to the quality of the finish and how well its been liked after. Frets, truss rod are all as they should be. Weight is 9.5 lbs (4.3Kg) I personally loved the bass in passive mode when i was running it with Dunlop flats and combined with the Franklin pups sounded lush. I tended to then just switch to active when i wanted the extra boost. I just recently strung it with DR Hi-Beams and in active ode will do a great modern jazz thing. Price is £1125 I'm in Pinner HA5 and you're welcome to collect(from my doorstep!) or i can ship across EU in a hardcase.
  11. I’ve never seen a Rosco Centuary available for this kind of money - I’d call that a bargin!
  12. Just bought a bass from Nikos in what was a simple and trouble free transaction. Bass arrived very well packaged and exactly as described. I would be happy to deal with Basspirate anytime. P
  13. I sold a combo to Stuart in what was a simple, trouble free transaction. With good comms, quick payment, I couldn’t have asked for any more. i can happily recommend Stuart to all on Basschat.
