  1. Had to comment on this one, as it was this album, not least this track and its bass solo in particular that got me into bass playing, when my dad used to play it back when I was 13...Still love Andy Fraser's honky tone! I've always liked my bass solos to be pretty exaggerated and the character of the player's always been a big part of that, in the same way that I've always liked guitar players like EVH and Pantera's late, great Dimebag Darrell, for instance...Big 2 for me have to be: Jaco at the height of his powers on this one. I've been trying to nail this for a long time and now resigned to the fact that I'll never have that stamina...2:27 onwards Living color's excellent previous bassist, Muzz Skillings, with this Jazzy but tasteful solo...From the 33 second mark
  2. Ha, she's certainly a beaut! Keep looking, why deny yourself? 😉
  3. Good call! This has been one of my practice tracks for some time, prime Pegg! A good workout and needs some stamina to get through all four sections...
  4. I've been using mine for 10 years and still use it with my Jazz Basses! Amazing transparent and natural-sounding little box and the batteries last forever! It's gone head to head with the Sadowsky preamp and this won out, for me. Slightly deeper frequency on the bass but somehow tighter sounding, and sweeter and less brittle sounding treble. GLWTS!
  5. Price drop bump! Now £4200 and open to sensible offers. This is a fantastic bass, which I definitely which I definitely wouldn't be selling if I didn't have a second child on the way...
  6. Thanks 😊 It plays and sounds as good as it looks!
  7. Definitely Dunlop Super Bright Nickels, or Dr Sunbeams. Both very soft feel, but I would argue as bright sounding if not a little less harsh sounding than the Rotos. I made the change myself and wouldn't dream of going back... Verrrrry similar tension and feel-wise. The DRs are almost twice the price but, for me, they last much longer and intonate much better (they're probably a bit better made). Compared to steels, nickels will also save you having to get a refret in the near future too, so there's an additional saving!
  8. It's with great sadness that I've decided to sell this fantastic 1965 Jazz bass, refinished in Olympic White by Joseph Kaye Guitars. I'm looking for £4000 for the bass. Ideally, buyer to collect from London NW3, but happy to package for courier collection if buyer arranges. Trade-wise, I'm interested in Wal, US Lakland, US Spector, nice precision-type basses, or those basses that start with R which no-one mentions around here... Hopefully the photos will demonstrate its beauty, but the low-down on what's non-original/original below: Non-original Olympic white nitro body and headstock refinish, nicely checked with mild relicing Reproduction headstock decal Replacement bone nut Refret - frets are in great shape! A couple of screws here and there... Original Body Neck Tuners Bridge Pots, dating to 1965 Grey bottom pickups with original winds Tort guard with some repairs to cracks, highlighted in photos below Pickup covers/ashtrays Everything else that I've failed to remember/mention! Also comes with a slightly battered but fully-functional case, which I believe is by Hagstrom, as the bass was imported from Sweden at some point. Sounds absolutely killer! Really acoustically loud, and strong, thick, balanced amplified sound with a beautiful tone. Will confirm on weight asap, but it's very light, i.e. less than 4kg. Any other questions, just ask!
  9. Bareknuckle '60 PE Jazz Bass pickup set for sale, good condition, amazing late 60s / early 70s JB tone! Looking for £95 inc. postage.
  10. Guy's clearly never heard of Thin Lizzy. For one, they're not called "Thin Lizzie", and for two, there's definitely not a lot of buzz around them at the moment! 😂
