  1. Oh god no! What have you started? I got you @CuzzieπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The pickups in this G&L are actually pretty good in fairness but MFD... Nope! It's commonly known about Leo Fenders hearing loss and how he'd overwind pickups to compensate for it. Well made instruments, granted I've owned a few G&L guitars and basses but mentioning MFD's, I can only hold Cuz back so much before he lets loose πŸ˜‚
  2. Wow! Looks incredible but for that price point, I think I'd have to sell some body parts on the black market πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚
  3. On paper it speaks for itself as a quality item, I'd just hunt one down and try it in your own hands πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»
  4. Gone! Sold via Facebook sales. Thanks to @AndyTravis and @Cuzzie for the kind words
  5. Sorry dude, from someone who plays 34"/35" basses, 32" is definitely short in my terms πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚but thanks for the correction buddy, I'll amend that now. Hope you're having a good weekend Mr Lowdown πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»
  6. Location: Eastham, Wirral. NW, UK. Condition: Used, some minor wear. Reflected in price Price: Β£509 ovno. No trades. Delivery at buyers expense. Obtained this awesome bass earlier this year to go alongside my late Yamaha Attitude 25th Anniversary bass as a more functional gigging bass- however I never got to take it out of the house in the end but still sat proudly in my bass collection as a fascinating "one off" instrument. It's foundations are on a Fender Squier Classic Vibe 51 neck on a Fender Squier Mike Dirnt Pbass body (inc neckplate and pickguard) However it's been modded with some Hipshot HB10 tuning machines which are solid construction, quality tuners and a matching Hipshot BT7 D-Tuner. Fender American Deluxe bass bridge- grooved and plated brass saddles. Neck pickup: DiMarzio Will Powerβ„’ Neck Middle pickup: DiMarzio Model P Custom electronics: Volume for Will Powerβ„’ Neck pickup Stacked Volume and Tone for the Model P Middle pickup. An absolute rock solid bass in construction and sound: something not to be assumed for being a cheap alternative bass whilst armed with USA Hipshot and Fender hardware or sounding less than a Yamaha Billy Sheehan BB714BS with actual DiMarzio pickups and not Yamaha own made pickups and electronics.
  7. Location: Eastham, Wirral. NW, UK. Condition: Used, some minor wear. Reflected in price Price: Β£245 ovno. No trades. Delivery at buyers expense. Fantastic medium scale bass with a lot of tone variety from one single '51 style pickup. The bass is in immaculate condition other than some superficial paint chipping on the bottom rear side of the bass. Sustained by the previous owner but this reflected in the price. Specs: Body:Basswood Body Shape:Telecaster Bass Neck Shape:β€œC” Shape Number of Frets:20 Fret Size:Medium Jumbo Position Inlays:Black Dot Fretboard Radius:9.5β€³ (24.1 cm) Fretboard:Maple Neck Finish:Polyurethane Nut Width:1.7β€³ (43.2 mm) Scale Length:32β€³ (81.28 cm) Pickup Configuration:1 Single-Coil Pickup Middle Pickup:Duncan Designed PB-102 Single-Coil Middle Pickup Pickup Switching: Position 1: Special Tone Circuit- β€œBaritone” – (No Tone Control), Position 2: Modern Bass (Volume and Tone Control), Position 3: Special Tone Circuit – β€œDouble Bass” – (No Tone Control).

  8. That's a real nice bass 😍 GLWTS
  9. I do like a heavy bass when it comes to recording, I find there's a better sound perhaps due to the mass(?) and there's something about a feel about a heavy bass when it comes to playing one but given I don't stand up and rock out when recording, I do have slightly lighter basses for playing live and my back does feel a lot more relief this way. Early memories of playing some heavy Ibanez SR basses and having dead shoulders (even on a wide strap) after a gig is something I don't miss.
  10. I think you'll struggle with the ball ends on the strings, as the Bass VI ball ends are more so 'guitar size' which will probably pull through the bass ball end sized bridge. I'm pretty sure the frets are somewhat different between a Bass VI and a short scale bass and sound of Bass VI strings through a bass pickup is going to be weak and thin. There's quite a few Bass VI instruments out there, I'd be tempted to give them a try but the Ibanez SRC6 is definitely a good shout.
  11. Well welcome to the forum, you should write an introduction as it'll be interesting to hear about you, your gear and what you hope to gain from being a member on here 😊
  12. Nice bass, I'd have one but I've already got one too many PJ basses πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ Good specs along with the new Dtuner, inlays and pickguard
