  1. Waaaaaaahhhhhh that's my old Betsy in the front !! Waaaaahhhhhh, i had that bass man and boy!!!! It was originally built for Steve Stroud from Bucks Fizz. Im off for a big cry ! I should never had let this bass go .....sniff sniff !!
  2. It's a DI out, i had a Pangborn for many years. Never ever used the DI out though (Did anyone?). Pangborn Electrics were typically 'hand made' by one of Ashley's friends..he hated paying full dollar for electrics, i think margins were tight without adding an expensive preamp (cost wise a production pre-amp could cost as much as ALL the timber !) I played mine passive most of the time as the pre-amp wasn't very good anyway. I loved my Pangborn for the way it looked and especially felt, not for the ahem cough cough electrics. 😉
  3. Great source for Korina & mahogany https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/iana1174/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

    Brilliant stuff.....was wondering if you were going for the full Gibson Tenon Join. Methinks there's more to you than just an amateur bodger Christine ( like Most of us in 'ere! ). Ian 😊

    Welcome Christine...looking forward to seeing your builds
  8. Aye Wishbass are not the purdiest of things.
  9. Usually is Owen's fault .........he's just likes a nice bit of good Wood ! Anyhooz i'm completely off this idea due to the overpricing of the hardware. Still want to do something different so mibbies do a single cutaway 5 string instead (If i can get a design i'm happy with ...most SC's are fuglybassas ..imho) Ian
  10. Brother wanted small headless travel bass to take on his hols but it has to be a 5 'er, this takes the cost of materials to a new level. Hard to justify the expense, especially when you can get a reasonable 5 string steinberger copy for a few hundred quid off t'interweb.
  11. I could take the tuners and saddles as you say Bastav then mill a casing from the finest 24ct Gold..and it would probably still be 50% cheaper than an ABM !
  12. First place i looked .....(i remembered you'd done some legwork on this already !) Ian
