  1. 2010 Squier Matt Freeman precision, gloss black body, vintage-tint gloss fast-action maple arrow straight neck with virtually zero fretwear. The previous owner customised the bass including pearl pickguard, wilkinson bridge etc. The bass is in excellent used condition for age. A nice 9.14 lbs. Plays like a dream and pretty rare. This maybe one I regret selling. £385 (sale only, no trades) + Postage. Features/Specifications: Body & Bridge: Body: Basswood Body Shape: Precision Bass® Colour: Black Neck: Neck Shape: Modern "C" Shape Number of Frets: 20 Fret Size: Vintage-style Fretboard Radius: 9.5" (24.1 cm) Fretboard: Maple Fingerboard Nut Width: 1.650" (42 mm) Scale Length: 34" (86.36 cm) Pickups & Hardware: Bridge Pickup: Custom Precision Bass® Split Single-Coil Pickup Hardware: Chrome Controls: Volume, Tone Control Knobs: Knurled Chrome Dome String Nut: Synthetic Bone
  2. The link to the website says "This replacement neck is for a Fender or Squier® by Fender guitar." So will definitely fit. One thing to note is that generally Fender necks are 63mm at the heel, and Squier are 64mm. There may be a small gap around the Fender neck as it's 1mm smaller, put into the Squier body.
  3. Post in the General Discussion section looking for help to get a lovely bass from Sutton Coldfield to Sunderland. Sure the kind folk here will be able to get the bass to you safe and sound. 😀
  4. Where are you? Maybe some kind BCers could help get it to you?
  5. Shine white jazz, solid basswood body, red tortoiseshell pickguard, dark rosewood arrow straight neck, recently lemon oiled, frets are very good, no sharp edges anywhere. Plays super fast, the back of the neck has a light satin finish with a glossy headstock - a little unusual, this is how it came out of the factory. Lightweight at only 7.2lbs. 38mm nut. Excellent condition. Pickups are surprisingly beefy and punchy, not what you’d expect from an inexpensive bass. Lots of tones available. Electrics are excellent. Hardware, pickups and electrics are all standard Fender size, easy to upgrade if desired. Only £95 + Postage.
  6. Me too. GHS Precision flats sound similar to La Bella's, a little lower in tension than the FLs, and as tension doesn't seem to be an issue as you're using LTFs, maybe use GHS instead?
  7. I know some older eb0s are longer than the 30" scale they are these days. I think some where 31.5", so will obviously need a longer case than a modern 30" one. Measure the total length of your '73 and someone may be able to help.
  8. The same may apply to fixed or buy it now as well, I don't know since eBay changed their rules!
  9. Yup, the item was ended early at £148, and eBay charged me £19. Had the bids been higher I or anyone else would have to pay even more I guess, and there's been no sale at all. No money changed hands, other than eBay taking direct from my bank account now!!!
  10. This is true. eBay holds payment for 3-4 days, then you receive a message saying payment will go into your account in 0-4 days. Potentially eBay will hold your money for a full week. By then the buyer will probably already have received the item, and you are still awaiting payment. Seems a dumb a** way of doing things!
  11. It means eBay have the money in their bank account and make additional money via the interest over the duration they have people's money. How much hassle is it to transfer money from PayPal to your bank - takes two clicks, 2 mins tops. So not really a hassle. I had a surprise message from eBay today after I ended a sale early (yesterday) as it was getting little interest. They sent me a bill for £19 for the item I ended early, no sale, I received no money. Another hidden eBay charge. This seems to be new as I've done this before on a couple of occasions, and was never changed, the last being fairly recently too. Naughty eBay!
  12. Buzz will probably be one of three things. A loose tuner head/ear. The string is loose in the nut i.e. not seated properly. Or the strings ball end isn't seated properly, just need to loosen the string slightly and turn the ball end a little bit.
