  1. Space Ritual. Sometimes only a Lemmy will do ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Lots of trade offers. 3 folk "if I can sell X in time". I may be able to courier by the end of the week, however if it doesn't go in the next few days I may remove & keep it. You might think I'm a bit of a ******* for not selling the LE Roasted, but once I withdraw they usually stay that way. Ask the two lads who regularly mail me about my CS Dusty Hill. Withdrawn about 2 years ago & staying that way ๐Ÿ˜
  3. Excellent basses & those upgraded pups will make it even better! This colour looks great with a mirror scratchplate as well ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Top bloke. Superb bass. Terrific price. Should have been gone by now. ๐Ÿค”
  5. Don't do it. Despite these being a production model, there aren't many about. 5 years or so back, the odd one that came up was about ยฃ500 used. Now the odd one that comes up is usually around ยฃ900/ยฃ1000. One loony tune had one up on eBay a few months back at ยฃ2200. They haven't been made since about 2012 I think. It's not all about the money, it's the importance of Steve's blue P especially in the 80s and whilst it's only a personal opinion, these particular basses should really be kept original as a part of rock music history.
  6. There follows a copy & paste from my Facebook advert, couple of guys discussing this bass. All public domain, on my sales advert. Gary Abell Thatโ€™s my old bass ๐Ÿ‘ Alan Jolliffe She's a beauty Gary Abell Alan Jolliffe really sorry I let it go but the pull of the 69 custom shop P was too much and couldnโ€™t justify both , it truly is a stunning bass used it in loads of studios sounds awesome, someoneโ€™s getting a killer bass there Alan Jolliffe Gary Abell if times were different my name could well be on this.... my mate plays Sandbergs and can't speak highly enough of them.... as my band's not gigging at mo can't justify buying another bass even if I sold my other 2 to fund it . no gigs means no new basses. She is a beaut tho Nice words indeed ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. All PM's replied. Apparently "sale only" means feel free to offer any trade you fancy ๐Ÿ˜† I was admittedly rather tempted by a classy looking Stingray. Oops.
  8. Cheers Paul hope you're ok fella, yup, that was one more I shouldn't have sold ๐Ÿ˜† You only know that because you are a fellow gear whore Jonny ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sorry, the LE Roasted Blues is going nowhere for a long time to come. So quit stalking me ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  9. Happy to meet outside Carlisle or Berwick for a definite sale ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Czech Rep I think, decent prices (you can juggle the currency on the website), big range. http://www.thepickguardshop.com/Fender+ยฎ++PVVETXdBVE02a25jdmRXWjBGMlk
  11. 2016, with Sandberg gig bag, OR cheapo, flimsier than the Fender version (but good condition) tweed style hard case. The colour is similar to the Mark 11 Steve Harris Precision Weight 8lb 6oz. Hand aged by Sandberg's staff. This spec on a Mark 11 would be over ยฃ1700. Plek'd, zero fret, 40mm nut, so between P & J specs, vol (active/passive, push/pull), pan, treble (which also acts as a tone control in passive mode), bass. 6 bolt Canadian Rock Maple neck, rosewood board, light Ash body. I bought some sticky marker dots for the fretboard, but didn't need them. They are included in the sale. I gig share in a band so I'm not going to be out much when we finally return. 3 very expensive basses is a luxury I don't need at the moment, hence the sale. Will meet within 100 mile radius of Darlington, social distancing to be observed. NO BOX to courier in, sorry. Lovely bass, reluctant sale so please don't think anybody will hammer me down, happy to keep it for a while yet. Feedback linked at end of advert, keep safe & thanks for looking.
  12. If Roger doesn't take it, I will please (set up with the Dunlop rounds).
  13. As per description, very good condition. Price includes postage UK mainland. Keep safe, Karl.
  14. I've never played a bad Sandberg. They have all set up easily as well.
  15. Tell ya how Ashdown would have got my grand post haste. 51/Tele style body, single coil HEADLESS like Dusty's in Sharp Dressed Man โค๏ธ
  16. I have the Mk 1 version, same colour, Soft Core Aged. If this is half as good as mine it will be exceptional. GLWTS
  17. The body is 1/8th of an inch thinner than a US Standard of the time.
  18. Anecdotal but a lot more folk are buying small stuff on line that they would previously got from a shop. A lot of the small stuff up to 1 or 2 kg goes through RM, so I guess less staff, more difficult working circumstances, more small parcels, letter size etc. I've had 2 this week, one took 7 days, one took 5 days. No biggy.
  19. That Aztec Gold is stunning Nick, much like your good self ๐Ÿ˜ Obviously the one you have for sale is as well, total classic, from a top fella. GLWTS, keep safe.
