  1. Done! address is Matt Couch 66 Wilton Street Stoke Plymouth PL1 5LU
  2. Love it, good work tracking it all down! you can always add to it or swap bits out as you find more… but for what it’s worth I like the jellybean kit look!

  6. just to derail this thread further (it’s my thread I can do what I like right!?) how did you deal with the maxed out truss rod issue? The old extra washer under the truss nut method or something else? I have one to sort out once I find time
  7. Wow! Yeah it really shot up! I hope it’s not as bad as it looks and can be restored without too much more expenditure. To be honest if it was a Peavey T-40 I’d have probably paid over the odds, just to try and ‘save it’ - as that particular bass is a serious obsession of mine. I once paid too much for one with a snapped headstock and a hacked up body, just to get some parts to fix a different one!
  8. Yeah, weirdly the electronics and potential problems you can’t see from the pics, scare me more than what’s on show. I bought a Peavey t-45 once that was described as excellent condition and with poor pictures…. It basically looked like this when I got it. Took ages to restore and by then I hated the thing for the time it had cost me, and sold it on as soon as it was good enough to sell

  10. You’re not wrong… good to hear it wasn’t just me that struggled to get the board out… man it’s really wedged in there!
  11. I got given a dead one of these for free… I must get round to fixing that! Cheers for the reminder guys!

  13. ah dang it, well you gotta do what you gotta do! Maybe mention to him that you're on the lookout for the odd drums as he's constantly getting new stuff in... he's got a lengthy list of things I'm after and drops me a line if he gets something in. He's done me some pretty generous deals on things lately too. Either way, best of luck, I hope you can finish the kit. Looks great!
  14. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114832861114?hash=item1abc9267ba:g:nPAAAOSweMhgt-K4 This one just came up on Ebay weirdly, great seller (I've bought loads from him in the past)
  15. That. It might seem like a defeatist attitude but life's way too short to waste time on projects you don't really believe in! The only way I'd attempt any kind of changing of their band/lineup etc was if it was an original band and I really believed it could be something special if they got a different singer. I'd be running the risk of them kicking me out as the 'new guy' of course, but it'd probably be at least worth a shot if I thought there was enough potential there. Whatever way you go with it, best of luck!
