  1. Chaps, does anyone know if the C64 reissue had a single truss rod or double truss rods? Thanks!
  2. Just bought a Steinberger from Loz. Excellent in every respect. A thoroughly nice chap, a pleasure to talk to and deal with. The bass arrived a little late (Loz was already chasing the courier) and turned out to be exactly as described and amazingly well packed. Deal with confidence.
  3. I just wanted to record for posterity, what a wonderful product the John East MM (3 knob) bass preamp is. My old Wilkes Stingray has had wobbly, grinding pots for some time. I wrote to Doug and asked him to reccomend a replacement, he suggested the John East pre. After a rather unfortunate experience with a Glockenklang pre from Thomann ( quite obtuse wiring instructions but excellent customer service), I contacted John who obligingly shipped me an MM pre. I installed it yesterday afternoon - in about ten minutes with no soldering😀...And it works like a dream. Bass sounds miles better. In fact, it sounds better than my actual Stingray, but there you go. Highly reccomended.
  4. Balance has been restored to the force...or something....😎
  5. Just heard from Mike- who was very nice after the intial misunderstanding- the bass has been sold. So good luck to whoever got it.
  6. A genuinely quirky British eighties classic. GLWTS.
  7. Anyone know what that thing that looks like a tailpiece is on the Greco? I've noticed that all Greco's seem to have them, but they all seem to have three point bridges which make them superfluous. Unless of course, I've got the wrong end of the stick...which is possible....
  8. The 415v active circuit was a joke. Please don't try this at home.
  9. I suppose it's what you as the player/buyer, feel comfortable/happy with, eh? If I macassar ebony fingerboard, 27 LED's in the neck and a 415v active circuit make you feel good, well hey, you're paying for the thing, so have at it.
  10. I say. Ding dong...
  11. Righto then. Pre 73. I'll keep my eyes peeled. I quite like the idea of that as it goes, they were the ones with the crushed oyster shell position markers I think? Very tasty.
  12. Heres a pic of mine. Found it in a music shop in Swansea in about 1984. Needed a refret. The star markings on the fingerboard are well glam rock I've always thought. The pickups are John Birch's own model. What later became known as the hyperflux I think. The electronics are idiosyncratic to say the least, but it plays well, and I've just restrung it with some tapes, and it sounds very pleasing. Much better with light gauge or low tension strings, as theres very little mass behind the heel of the neck, so it does tend to sit forward a bit.
  13. Mine is very playable too! I have absolutely no idea what it's worth. It's beautifully built and the pickups are truly wonderful.
