  1. It's all about the beard ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  2. In '73 I went up to that London to get myself some new gear ๐Ÿ˜Ž I had recently aquired a new shiny plastic thing called Barclaycard and it was burning a hole in my pocket โ˜บ๏ธ After trying every Rickobasher in town and being incredibly p1553ed off with them, I fell in love with a beautiful blonde Gherson Jazz, had to have it! Then - trying it through a HiWatt 100 and a cab I can't remmember - I wanted more of everything, grunt, heft, trouser flapping wind, etc.etc. The sales guy said 'hang on a minute' and rushed out of the shop, returning shortly with a monster Orange cab, on a trolley, standing 5 foot high and 2 foot wide and about the same weight as HMS Ark Royal, concealing 2 x 18" massive cones. It sounded wonderful, fulfilling all my dreams, to be the envy of every other bass player, (in Bexhill at least!). It was 'perfect', fitted in the back of my Mk1 Cortina estate with amp and bass just right! 2 weeks later I was back in town buying another HiWatt 100 to push even more air through it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Those really were the good ol' days, then in '75 I got married, '76 it all came to a bitter end, I had to give up gigging, she couldn't stand the lifestyle of a bass playing rock 'n roll hero, you've heard it all before ๐Ÿคฉ
  3. You're dead right, all these parts are becoming harder to find here and yes, I have everything in stock ๐Ÿ˜Š
  4. Lovely ๐Ÿ‘ I realy wanted one a few years back, but - - -
  5. It depends if I use it or not ๐Ÿ˜‚, mostly these days it sits on the drive and the petrol evaporates more than it gets used โ˜บ๏ธ I don't bother checking it these days, the trip computer is never on long enough to give an average, 'cos I have a master switch on the battery, turned off while it's standing, that's about 355 days a year I reckon!
  6. 2001 Opel Omega CDX estate, Irmscher chipped, 2.6 V6 petrol, it's a good old barge and my son tells me the other day he saw the Omegas voted in the top 5 for drift cars ๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. My 20 year old car just sailed through it's MOT again and taxed it online completely hassle free ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Hendrix for me too, maybe it's age related, saw him a few times live, long before anybody had even heard of Prince ๐Ÿ˜Ž Playing 1983 a merman I should turn to be just a few minutes ago ๐ŸŽธ
  9. A impuse buy I have to admit, as soon as the advert came up I grabbed the necks, a good start to a new project. A pleasure to deal with, very easy transaction and very pleased with them, arrived today. Cheerz, John
  10. Mark got in touch re a loom to liven up his HB, I obliged ๐Ÿ˜Š. Great communications and instant payment, a perfect transaction, pleasure to deal with. Cheerz, John
  11. You probably need a shim in the neck pocket, but remove the neck and first see if there is one already! If there is at the bottom end, nearest the pick-ups, take it out. If not then fit one at the top, furthest away from the pick-ups. Try something about 10/12 thousandths of an inch to start with, like a piece of a business card. HTH, John
  12. Hi, could you please let me know the cost of your p bass wiring loom?

    Thanks

      Steve, you have a PM.

  13. Find out what sizes Allen keys you need for your bass/es, are they Metric or Imperial? A couple of screwdrivers that fit what you want, a small adjustable spanner, strings, string cutters, small file, spare battery, spare lead, mini tuner - pretty much covers everything ๐Ÿ˜Ž Far more use than a cheap 'multitool' I reckon.
