  1. Master Effects Golden Ratio for sale in mint condition. This is a spot-on clone of a vintage 1970s Electro Harmonix Clone Theory, complete with the coveted MN3007 bucket-brigade device (BBD) chip, but without any of the issues of the vintage units due to a number of modern adjustments. This is a must for Peter Hook fans! The pedal nails those Joy Division and New Order bass tones perfectly. More info on the Master Effects website here: https://mastereffects.wixsite.com/mastereffects/buy-now-mod Looking for £150 including shipping
  2. I believe blonde was only the standard finish on Telecasters and Esquires during the 50s and 60s and on the Pre-54 Precisions, but it was offered as a custom colour option for Jazz Basses and later Precisions, as well as on Strats, Jazzmasters and Jaguars.
  3. At that point in time a Fender custom colour was anything other than sunburst!
  4. Another dot/bound/lollipop 66 Jazz Bass! Super clean example that I got off pmjos on here a couple of years back. Absolute beaut to play, hear and look at!
  5. Yes, also very keen to hear about this! Especially vs the standard EMG P/J setup
  6. Sorry, we're talking about this one that Eldon has bought, not the matte one Dov65 went for
  7. Phew! Thank you...I was properly uhmming and ahing over that one and it would've got me in right shiz! 😆
  8. @Eldon Tyrell That's a beauty! A US NS4, yes? Realise you might not even have it yet, but I'd be interested to know how the sound differs to the NS2 P/J pickup configuration? Where did you get it, out of interest? I've been scouring the UK shops for the last few months for a US NS2/4, and no one seems to have them at the moment...
  9. I used to have a black Kramer-era NS2 about 15 years ago, which had the Haz preamp and EMGs and sounded amazing - absolutely cracking bass which I severely regret selling, but I was young and stupid and needed rent money... I also had a 2001 all-maple Euro NS4 CRFM, with the Aguilar OBP-1 preamp and EMGs (sold to Aero71 of this forum, and which I also throughly regret selling...). Despite there being a few years between ownership, I have to say that the Euro felt and sounded, acoustically, VERY similar to the Kramer NS2. If anything, the Euro was possibly a bit more lively acoustically. I only really noticed a difference when I listened to recordings of the each bass - the bottom end was very close, but the Euro had a very clean, sweet and glassy top end, whereas the Kramer had this lovely growly, grindy top end which cut right through the guitarists' full-gain Marshall JCMs! This video, though not the greatest playing-wise, demonstrates that tone pretty well. I really believe that HAZ preamp is a big part of that US NS2 sound and that one of those inserted into a 90s/00s Euro bass would get you there for a lot less money, provided you can source one of course!
  10. Bumping, as I'm now back in London with this beauty...Open to sensible offers! 🎸
  11. Thank god for that! Hoping all will go smoothly with the sale so I don't have to keep coming back here every 15 minutes to agonise over whether to buy this 😉
