  1. Came out of my 78 Tokai P bass. A little to dark for me, I wanted a more woody tone. These would be ideal to beef up a weedy sounding P bass. Come with original brass shielding plate attached. Plenty of wire left, will need to dig out the screws tho, they have gone awol £40.00 inc UK P&P, can knock a few quid off if collected in Bolton.
  2. Elites Detroit Flats - 45-105. Silks in decent condition. Plenty of life left. £12.50 inc UK P&P La Bella 760FS. Silks frayed up at tuner end. Still plenty of life and lively. £15.00 inc UK P&P Original Fender Flats (not 9050's). Need to check guage but id say 100-40, certainly light. No silks at tuner end, light green at bridge. Still very lively and not broken in. £15.00 inc UK P&P All are cut for 4-in-row fender type headstock.
  3. Anyone in the Northwest after a GK 2x12 cab?  Im after a head but the seller wont split the rig and I don't need another cab :(

    Sold Brian a tonestyler type P bass loom. No problems and very straight forward

    New Amp Day

    One of these is definitely on my wants list. So far ive whittled it down to an Ashdown Spyder, Mesa (BB750 or walkabout) or one of these. Lovely sounds on WOT's youtube channel (along with some tasty P basses!)

    New Warwick Tubepath 10.1

    i bought mine supposedly working off of ebay for around £250. Turns out the seller wasn't very honest and the amp had issues in that three internal fuse holders had snapped. I made do with soldering the fuses to the remains of the fuseholders and the amp has worked fine since. Needs sorting properly tho really with new fuse holders/clips. I do have it on ebay at the mo (not a plug BTW) with an more honest description that the original ad!
  7. NBD - 1978 Tokai Hardpuncher (burst/black/maple) THE best P bass ive ever played.  Just stuck my usual flats on and WOW!  Pics and thread to follow

      Only one pic of her at the mo, seen here with my 66 fliptop. Usual flats are Elites, lovely strings

      WOT - no covers!!!

  8. Set of chrome P bass covers taken from my 1978 Tokai bass and a newer thumbrest/tugbar. Both show slight pitting which makes them look cooler (to me) than brand spanking new shiny things. The bridge cover has the remnants of a previously attached foam mute and the pup cover is the more traditional, more square shape than the newer more rounded ones. Thumbrest is as new. Great set to make you P bass look nice and vintage. Will post pics asap and asking £25 posted to your UK address
  9. SOLD in record time to Mr Paddy515
  10. Full P bass wiring loom with junction box type connection to allow solderless wiring to the pups. This is a copy of the Stellartone Tonestyler harness featuring a 6 click type tone pot with a different cap at each click for a wide tonal pallet. I tried this after watching numerous Youtube clips of Garth Fielding with his P bass through a B15. Very well made with a CTS volume pot and a stereo jack wired in mono to supposedly help with reducing any unwanted hum. Fitted to my p bass for 5 mins but not my thing. Will even chuck in some new flat top knobs that fit the split shafts. Comes with instructions so all you need is a mini flathead screwdriver and you're away. Price includes UK postage
  11. My main bass and the bass that has held such a title for the longest – 6yrs to be exact. It’s a 1994 (according to the serial number thingy) Fender Japan PB70 complete with TV style logo and vintage tinted neck. Bought as a replica of Baz Fratelli’s 1974 precision bass and set up with the same strings and features as his original. It has seen several things done to it in the time I have held it which ive listed below. When I bought his from Ookini (Japanese guitar and bass specialist over on that ebay) he mentioned that the Black/black/rosewood version of the PB70 is the rarest. Ive seen many oly white/black but never seen another black/black. Its first ever full set up I had done when I first bought it including a full fret dress. It has worn flatwounds ever since so frets are in excellent condition I bought this for my 30th and was my #1 bass for 4 years covering all my gigs and recording. I sold it briefly a few years back and bought it back after sellers remorse around 8mths later and its been reinstated as my number one ever since. Unfortunately that ‘vintage fender bass’ itch that ive had for a few years now needs scratching and this is making way for such. Additions:- KIOgon wiring Harness Alex Pribora handwound pickups – sound amazing and a ‘mod’ I do to all my P basses Wilkinson 70’s style tuners Thumb rest in 74 period correct position Ashtray/bridge covers Metal sleeve inserts in neck for neck bolts (during full set up at Jacks Instrument Services) Elites Detroit Flatwound Strings Fender F stamp neck plate and plastic gasket thingy for period correctness) Set up/serviced pretty much every year since ive had it by Jack Ellis at Jacks Instrument Services to keep it in excellent recording and gigging condition. Bad points:- In its 8mth exile from me someone has attempted a mini relic job on the arm contour. Doesn’t look remotely genuine but to be honest when being played it cant really be seen. Could possibly be painted over or a more genuine relic job done Of course it’s a gigged back so there are a few minor knocks and scuffs. It genuinely is the one bass I thought id never sell. If I hadn’t seen the 73 bass on Andy Baxter’s it would probably be my forever bass ☹ Comes with an immaculate hardcase but I wont trust this to a courier. Its collection only from Bolton where she can be heard thumping and growling through her best mate, a 1966 Ampeg fliptop. No trades. I don’t really want to do this but needs must. Pics to follow tonight if I don’t change my mind throughout today 😊
  12. Sorry for the delay in replying to the PM's, ive been away this week. Unfortunately the bass sold on eBay last Friday. Will mark up the ad now. Thanks for all the comments and interest

    Spyder330 fair price

    Superb heads! Im currently on an old ABM300 but always loved the spyders. One of my fave of all the Ashdown heads! Enjoy
  14. Back up, had an offer of £600 off ebay but has since gone quiet. Will accept same offer on here if that interests anyone at £600 collected or could work around UK postage
  15. Sorry, this sold a while back and I forgot to update the ad
  16. Ashdown 550 Touring Spyder 2x10 combo. A proper old school sounding combo with plenty of volume and beef! From what ashdown say the preamp is taken from their Big Block valve amp (a 2 x 12AX7 jobby) with the power stage being the tour proven ABM solid state unit. I married the combo up with the Catalinbread pedal im also selling and with my flats loaded P it honestly was the closest sound ive had to my old all valve rigs. Couple of tolex nicks but nothing major. I replaced the stock chinese 12AX7's with JJ's and added some nice heavy duty castors to the amp. This is one of the original UK made units before production was shifted to China. Collection only on this one im afraid but could deliver within reasonable distance. The combo is currently at our rehearsal space in Chorley but I can bring it back to Bolton with me this week. £225 ONO. Thanks for looking.
  17. Speaking to a fellow and local BCer last night who has recommended a carrier. As such I would reluctantly be willing to have this shipped within UK if that interests anyone.
  18. Filthy vintagy bass porn shot of her with my fliptop just to temp 😂
  19. She isnt wearing her bridge cover in the pics but she does come with it. Pics of abs style case asap

    FS- Ashdown Touring 220W & 1x12 Cab.

    I was looking recently at flogging my Ampeg SB12, funding a nice vintage Fender P and replacing the Ampeg with an Ashdown 1x12 cab and their Little Stubby amp. Hmmmmmmm
  21. Never bought from Andy Baxter Bass but the 1973 P bass on his site coupled with their Divido monthly payment scheme is sorely tempting me!

      the burst/maple right handed one.  replaced pickguard, wiring and knobs but other than that its supposedly original.  I also like the jazz bass on there, again burst/maple/white block

    3. Chewie


      Ooh yeah........ nice.  Really lightweight.  I like the black jazz with the black blocks.......

      Andy Baxter is one of my daily/weekly visits on the web, always something to make you drool if it's vintage Fenders you're after! In fact, I'm having a look right now....
