  1. The Precision is listed here but it’s about to be sold. If it doesn’t go sure I’ll message you mate
  2. Set of light gauge Eurosonic’s for sale. Same as Presto strings I bought them in the states. Not seen much use, I only use them occasionally for rocking gigs prefer others for all round use but like these for slap/blues gigs for a warmer gut sound. They go on my bass when I have a slap gig.. having a clear out wondered if they’re useful to anyone on here. £60 Ono posted

  4. Still available.. £1200 premium amp for little mark money.
  5. Thanks! I think production shifting from Italy slashed the prices on used markbass equipment. These are premium amps, absolutely top class sound.
  6. How about £700? Reality bites 🤣 Beast of a precision for sale, a fantastic sounding instrument. The evil twin of my Jazz also up on basschat. It’s the best Precision I’ve had (over 40... ) until I found my ‘64/65 fender, which is all I play now. One little thing... HOW ‘BOUT THAT AAAAA MAPLE NECK FOLKS? - never seen the like. It’s worn and has much playing wear but it’s jaw dropping. Price I’m asking probably wouldn’t buy you a bare precision neck of that quality maple from Fender custom shop. String with fresh TI flats. Mods.. Pickup is a Seymour Duncan hot replacement, pots and cap are high grade replacements. I have the original Squiers in storage, cloth wired ones with what I am told are the original pots. Selling as is.. The spares will go as parts when I get them out of storage. Honestly..it’s so good..best to leave it alone. However, they are available if a buyer wants them. Body colour, pickguard, bridge and tuners are original. Genuine Fender Bassman knobs. The originals are available too. Getting them out of storage is difficult in these times unfortunately. It’s been refretted with the correct size frets - by Bassdoc - there’s no wear to speak of. Stunning bass that I’m sad to part with, its twin Jazz is also for sale. Deal on the pair available, I’d love them to stay together.. They’ve been well played and lived together for 15 years after all Happy to ship worldwide at buyers expense - hard cases available but not included.
  7. Reality bite.. £650?? My gorgeous Jazz is up for sale, a fantastic sounding instrument that plays like a Jazz Bass should.. it’s a stunner, rave reviews you read about Japanese Vintage basses are true. Bargain.. get it bought! Mods.. it has had a battery compartment fitted at some point mid 80’s.. the circuit works passive I’ve never tried it active. It’s wired Volume/Blend/Tone. It sounds great so I never messed with it. The logo is underneath the Black Nitro on the headstock, done matching by Wes Finn in Brighton sone years ago. This would easily come off to reveal the original logo etc but why would you? The stickers on there are from a band I was in years ago. Body colour, bridge and tuners are original, as are the pickups which sound great. It’s been refretted with the correct size frets - by Bassdoc - there’s no wear to speak of. The Pickguard is a Fender replacement, I have a spare black plate that was on there when I bought it around 15 years ago. Stunning bass that I’m sad to part with, its twin Precision is also for sale. Deal on the pair available I’d love them to stay together.. They’ve been well played and lived together for 15 years after all. Happy to ship worldwide at buyers expense - hard cases available but not included.
  8. I’ll connect ground through new holes to the ferrules and fill the previous holes, once all the decisions and tinkering is finished. The Lace Alumitones supposedly don’t need shielding but I’m going to shield the cavities properly and run an earth.. I’ve never tried them so best to do it before it’s set up and playing should I choose to swap for another pickup set. The ferrules are Gotohs (though bought from EBay..) supposedly chromed brass but they feel very light, they should add to shielding and ground to the strings. Drill through before I fit them so they are all connected. I can’t decide if I want the jazz pickup at the 2nd octave harmonic or not... Something else I’ve always had an idea to try. Love a neck pickup..
  9. I play double bass.. the bridges typically aren’t adjustable in the same sense, they are cut and worked to intonate properly on the instrument they are made for. I have been looking at the Stradi basses a lot, really appreciating the mix of acoustic and electric basses, low weight, recycling and found timber, resonant. Worth noting.. The luthier helping me makes acoustics and archtops that start around 4K.. none of them have an adjustable bridge. When making acoustic instruments you use selected wood that’s specifically chosen to NOT to weigh the instruments top down.. they mute the instrument. I don’t really want to screw 3/4 of a kg of brass and grub screws onto this only to intonate it once then never adjust it again. I have got some hip shot individual saddles that I had thought would go on here but it’s a fun project I want to try something different. May well end up with them on there.. who knows. I used to use a hollow Japanese fender Precision that had an acoustic saddle and piezo and loved it.
