  1. For sale (no trades) is my rare 1980 Ibanez RS800BK Roadster, this is the original RoadstEr (not to be confused with the later RoadstAr, or cheaper mid 80’s RoadstAr II Series). The original Roadster Series were made between 1979-81 at the legendary Fujigen Gakki factory in Japan during the golden period of Japanese guitar and bass production. The original Roadster Series alongside the Musician Series were the top of the range Ibanez basses, made by hand, sharing the same hardware and Super 4 pickups. Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy toured playing the Ibanez RS900 Roadster - essentially same bass but with 2-band active electronics. The RS800 has passive electronics. Made January 1980, all original, has a gloss black mahogany body and lacquered rock maple neck. The neck features some neat Ibanez tech called “TR Tuned Response” which basically eliminates dead spots. Sweetheart nickel tuners. Accu-Cast B High Mass bridge, and the Ibanez Super 4 high output single coil pickup. The electrics work clean, no noise or static turning pots. The bass does have marks, scratches and dings commensurate with age, mostly to the back and sides, in very good condition for a bass 42 years old. The neck has a 41mm nut, super comfy to play like all Ibanez necks from this period. The positioning of the Super 4 pickup produces a P-Bass / Stingray / Rick type sound dependant on strings. The pickup has a heavy mid bias with thumping low-end and crisp highs. Currently wearing GHS Pressurewound strings. Weighs 9.3lbs. A workhorse of a bass, and if it was good enough for Phil Lynott, it’s good enough for me. £450 plus Postage (UK mainland only). No offers. No case.
  2. For sale a set of Made in USA EMG X PJ pickups, including pre-wired loom and original black flat top knobs. EMG X pickups are designed to sound like passive pickups. They sound very similar to the EMG GZR Geezer Butler pickups, and these have even higher output being active. In excellent condition, the pickups come with the EMG loom already pre-wired, so you just need to clip on the pickups to the volume pots, and add a 9v battery. Somewhere I’ve lost the jack, so a standard stereo jack will be required too, and this just clips on as well. £95 + Postage.
  3. Dave brought a bass from myself. Very nice guy, smooth transaction and fast payment. Thanks again. 👍
  4. D'Addario Chromes ECB81S flatwound short scale strings, 45-100 guage. Strings are unused, I began putting the E string on, cut it to length but decided not to use these strings on this particular bass. So the E string is already cut, the others are all untouched. Basically all the strings are as new. SOLD

FEATURES • Enamel-coated magnet wire delivers warm vintage-style tones • Alnico 5 magnets add more focus and enhanced dynamics • Flush-mount polepieces produce even string response • Shellac-potted • Period-correct cloth wire and fiber bobbin construction SOLD
  7. Beautiful. Why did you go for a two saddle bridge, these are notoriously difficult to get intonated?
  8. **** Postage Available ***** For sale a 2013 Fender Squier Vintage Modified P-Bass in rare Candy Apple Red, in excellent used condition, a few marks consistent with age and normal use. There’s numerous threads online about how good these are, and ‘Bang for Buck’ etc. I’d been looking for one of these for years, as they rarely come up for sale, especially in Candy Apple Red, however a recent purchase of my dream bass means this is now for sale. Comes in a solid Gator Deluxe ABS hardcase. Solid agathis body, amber tinted lacquered maple neck, with rosewood slab fretboard - recently cleaned and lemon oiled. Lightweight at only 7.6 lbs, with Fender-Designed Alnico Precision pickup, and Jazz pickup (DiMarzio style). Original heavy duty bridge. Ernie Ball strings. SOLD
  9. Picked up an ivory (ahem... Cream) tmb30 recently, and like others have said, a very nice ss bass. Particularly impressed by the pickups, the J in the PJ actually sounds like a J (honky), many inexpensive PJ's I've owned over the years the J always lacks presence - but not in this bass. Both pickups fairly well balanced in terms of output, which there's plenty. One thing I have noticed about this version, is that ibanez have changed one or two things from the previous models, most obvious is the black pickguard is now solid black, not 3-ply anymore. Which I guess would look great on black talmans, if you wanted the stealth look (all black). All in all a decent short scale, with rounds it does the crunchy rock sound very well. Very cool.
  10. Aidan brought a P body from me, excellent communication and fast payment. Thanks again.
  11. For sale is my lovely 1983 Squier SQ Precision, Made in Japan by FujiGen Gakki. SOLD

I believe the pickups are in the 70s position. SOLD 50s PRECISION BODY Glossy Dakota Red solid body, gold anodised pickguard, knurled flat top knobs, Fender Vintera 50s alnico pickups, BBOT bridge with threaded saddles, and solderless electrical wiring harness from this forum.
