  1. So I've had this bass for a few weeks now & over all am very happy with it. Build quality,in general,is very good,plays & sounds very good indeed however there have been a couple of issues. No 1 - the jack socket was very iffy from new which meant the pick guard had to come partially off on day one so I could bend the contacts in a little so it would actually make reliable contact with the lead,which also means said lead doesn't fall out of the socket now. No 2 - I had to take out the treble side of the pickup as the foam padding in the cavity was too small to support the pickup correctly making proper adjustment impossible,now fixed with a new piece of suitable foam. So only minor niggles but simple ones that shouldn't be there on an £800 instrument,good old Fender build quality strikes again. Don't let this put you off buying one though as it is a very nice P bass & will most likley be my main gigging bass.
  2. I'm probably going to pull this from sale. I just can't make my mind up what to do. I really want an American Original P bass & would use it more than this,but this is just so damn nice.
  3. * ok this is now back up for sale - please note I have now fitted a KiOgon passive loom to the bass which I think is a massive improvement over the stock active system,I do of course have said active system but it will need someone with suitable knowledge to re fit it if required* see thread Although I love the bass to bits I find I much prefer my P bass so this will hardly ever see the light of day. I much prefer gloss lacquered chunky P bass necks & vintage frets so an American Original P bass or something of it's like would be of interest to me. I bought this new from PMT Leeds last September. I have done quite a few gigs with it but it has no damage or marks so is in excellent condition. It looks amazing,plays amazing & sounds amazing too. Comes with it's original hard case complete with all the goodies. Collection only or I can possibly meet somewhere. Price is firm so no lower offers please. Cash or bank transfer only please,definitely no PayPal. I will update my photos when I get chance. Cheers.
  4. I'm sure it's cheaper than the MIM 50's P bass was & definitely built better
  5. So far I can't fault anything about it. Build quality is excellent,all the hardware seems to be of good quality ,ncluding the tuners,it plays beautifully (I love gloss lacquered necks) & sounds absolutely fantastic. I too had a MIM classic 50's P bass a few years ago which was a nice bass but the Vintera seems to be a better made instrument,I highly recommend it. I couldn't be happier. (Until I get an American Original P bass)
  6. It's pretty light,lighter than my jazzes anyway. I'll weigh it when i get chance
  7. That's easy Buy both 🤣🤣
  8. It sounds just as good as it looks too 😁

    Just got one of these from gear4music on Saturday,£236 on my vip account 😁 Used it on Saturday night & am very impressed indeed. I play classic rock so always have overdrive on my bass,previous I used the drive on my MT900 head but was never over happy with the sound,but with the YYZ I dialed on a glorious tone that really thundered through. When coupled to my Darkglass AOU it proper kicked donkey 😁 Even the drummer commented on it 😲
  10. First gig done on Saturday night in Doncaster & after a slight bit of apprehension after playing Jazz basses for yonks it was fantastic. So nice to play & the sound wow,it just really filled out the band's sound so much better,really meaty bass helped along my various overdrives,killer rock bass sound. I may just convert to P basses & ditch the J's.
  11. I usually play a Jazz bass but find this very comfortable indeed. I'm sure it's not as chuncky as the 50's classic I used to own
  12. I've got a rather nice PPI payout from my bank so just had to treat myself. The problem I had was just bringing one bass home as I almost brought a Gibson Les Paul junior bass home too 😁
  13. Sounds very good at home but I won't get to hear it with the band until next Saturday
  14. Thanks guys 👍 She is a thing of beauty for sure
  15. Well it was Tuesday actually. I had been fancying a P bass for a while now so popped into Gear4music to check out a Player series P. However they didn't have any on display so I checked on their fancy screen thingy & spotted the Vintera range,mmmm had to check it out. To me it looks beautiful,seems to be very well made,plays & sounds excellent too.(it was also substantially cheaper than the classic 50's P bass they have in stock) Over all I am very happy with it,although I've yet to play it with the band but I'm sure it will be mint 🤣🤣
  16. Lol thanks for the replies chaps,much appreciated & made me laugh. Actually ended been a cracking night. My method was to ask in a rather harsh manner " where the f#$k am I supposed to go then,the [email protected] car park" (yes I can be quite blunt) Suddenly in a flurry of movement several items where moved & hey presto I had some space 😁 They are great guys though
  17. Setting up for tonights gig & sure enough I am shoved into a corner out of the way. The singers leads monitor etc are right where my pedal board should be. Of course the rest of the band have all the room they could want. Why is it always thus ?
  18. I recorded this using my Alpha Omega Ultra staight into the desk. Full Omega with drive on full & blend at 11 o'clock. I set the graphic eq with a mid hump. It sounds huge,I really like it & the engineer absolutely loved it too,in fact he didn't alter anything just added some compression.
  19. Cheers,they did some awesome tunes
  20. It was recorded by the studio engineer with one gimbal mounted SLR. We had to play through it a few times lol We recorded the audio a few weeks beforehand 😁
  21. After playing in various bands for the past 35 years my current band have recorded a decent video of a Black Sabbath cover."Lord of this World" Please have a watch & feel free to comment. Ta
