  1. The W******y. When the owner says he can only pay you with burger and chips you know that it's time to say no thanks.
  2. Some lovely stuff in Basses For Sale, not doing my GAS any good though... 😁

      Your GAS?? - It's probably not as bad as MY GAS though ;)

  3. I've just discovered The War On Drugs (I know...) Not been moved by music in this way for years. Beautiful.

  4. ***WITHDRAWN*** Sire Marcus Miller V7 4 string jazz bass. Vintage sunburst finish, maple neck, rosewood board with block pearl inlays, 18v active pre-amp (bass, treble, sweepable mids), pickup blend, master volume with stacked tone control, active/passive toggle switch (very handy), through-body stringing option, chrome pickup cover (which has been fitted, so there are screw holes...). Pretty sure everyone knows how great these basses are, and excellent quality for the money, comes with a case (one of those that isn't hard shell but is sturdier than a gig bag). Has been gigged (but not a lot), in excellent condition, I would prefer collection from the Isle of Wight or any of it's ferry ports (Portsmouth/Southampton/Lymington/Southsea) or I can (reluctantly) post at buyers expense.
  5. Big time Precision GAS, but the Sire V7 needs to go first...😁

      Ah, I'm not the only one who gets GAS before selling something then ;)

  6. I'd love this but I'll need to see my Sire V7 off first. Good luck with the sale. 😊
  7. I use all 3 formats for listening to music - mp3/CD/vinyl, but overall I prefer CDs. I'm another one who likes to have the artwork/liner notes in my hand, and although vinyl is the ultimate format for the "whole package", the claim that it's sonically superior to CDs is a myth. Back in the day, when you routinely had to pay 15 quid for a CD, I thought nothing of the price and during the 90s I bought a lot of albums, at least one a week. A few years later I got rid of some that weren't getting played, and regretted it later on. Sites like Music Magpie are great because I can now spend £22 like I have his week on albums (Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees, Kyuss and Mad Season for anyone interested...😊). Even the price of new CDs makes owning physical copies more attractive - both Royal Blood albums for a tenner in HMV recently. 😁
  8. Picked up both Royal Blood albums in HMV for a tenner the other day. Holy $h1t, what a perfect noise they make. 😊
  9. Netflix has a Chicago documentary in their library right now. I watched it the other day, not really knowing much about the band other than the Cetera-sung ballads from the early 80s. Damn, those boys can play... 😁
  10. ***SOLD***Here we have a stack-knob wiring kit from our very own KiOgon. I had this on my P/J for a couple of years, but decided ultimately is was a little too warm sounding for my taste. Artec pots, solder-less connections, caps are 0.1 on neck and .047 bridge (orange drop), switchcraft jack (which is missing the nut and washer unfortunately), plus two sets of knobs - chrome and black. £50 delivered, Paypal is my preferred method of payment. ***SOLD***
  11. Thanks mate! 😊 She got her first gig last night, sounded great with the Dunlops on there, I'd forgotten how comfortable it is to play - I've been using my Sire V7 for gigs and although that too is a great sounding bass, they are a little on the heavy side. The P/J is a bit lighter but doesn't' feel insubstantial like some lighter basses. It certainly sounds heavy with the new pots. 😁
  12. Might sell better with a chrome pup cover on one of them...
  13. Had this on my P bass a couple of years ago, took it off again, been stashed away ever since, so selling as nearly new. £12 delivered.
  14. Just don't look under the pickguard...
  15. Here's mine - formerly a Squier Vintage Modified 70's Precision bass, I have added Tonerider pickups (split coil plus jazz bridge pickup), a KiOgon wiring loom with US spec pots, mint green pickguard, painted headstock and a cheeky Fender decal. Sounds so good, I'm thinking of getting rid of the Sire MM V7 and doing another P-bass mod... Maybe black with tort guard and matching headstock....
  16. She LIVES!!! Thank you guys for the advice, tips etc. I did indeed have the J pot wired up wrong. I've also grounded the tone pot to the shielding. Result? Practically zero hum, no buzzing and a great set of tones thanks to the KiOgon wiring loom. I've strung her with a fresh set of Dunlop Super Brights (40-100) and will give her a good seeing to on Friday night....;) Thanks again everyone. Basschat RULES!
  17. Fanx guys, I'm on it. Results later... 😊
  18. Is Ki0gon still a member on here...?
