  1. Happy to consider realistic offers.
  2. Hi All, Up for sale is my 1966 Fender Precision Bass with its OHSC. 100% original apart from a replacement pickup ash-tray cover. In terrific condition with a few dings, dongs and rear scratches and light buckle wear. Quite an example - the sunburst is still very vibrant. Lightweight at 8lb 10oz and plays with a low action all the way up the neck. Feel free to arrange to play/view with no obligation. Cheers, Si

    Paul and I have been in contact for some years now and seeing him as he picked up a P bass on the weekend was a pleasure, as always. Top bloke and 100% recommended. Cheers, Si
  4. Up for sale is my 100% original Natural 1975 P bass with its OHSC. Light for this period at 8.7lbs. In terrific condition - a few insignificant dings and dongs and a couple of checking marks in the poly finish (lengthy one on the body rear). Pots and pups date to '75 - case has one latch broken but is in great nick otherwise. Plays fantastic all the way up the neck - plenty of life left in the frets. Looking for £1950. Cheers, Si
  5. Hi All, Up for sale is my 1963/4 Candy Apple Red Fender Bass VI with its blonde tolex case. 100% original apart from some very minor touch ups on the headstock. Original mute system (sans mute pad) and trem bar included. Rare indeed. Has plenty of checking, dings, dongs, dangs and scratches, but overall in terrific condition for her age. These basses are becoming increasingly collectable and prices have risen quickly over the past three or four years....they never quite caught on back in the day and so plenty can be found with reasonable gaps between compenent parts....this one has a '63 neck date and '64 pots as they were assembled to order. Any questions please ask and feel free to pop round for a play with no obligation. Cheers, Si
  6. The story goes that a Fender employee started writing profane messages (rather than the date) on the neck heel, Leo got wind of it and banned the writing of anything at all for a short period. A bit like my eldest son and the cover of his English Text book, then 😍
  7. Many thanks Kev - just pop a tenner on us reaching the final - that should cover it !!! 😂
  8. HI All, Up for sale is my 100% original 1959 Fender Precision Bass with its OHSC. Sunburst finish, gold ano guard and maple neck - perhaps the holy grail of P basses. I've owned this one for some years now and although its not without its dings, dongs, scratches, play wear etc (see pics), overall it is in terrific condition for its age.....light also at 8.5lbs. Plays and sounds fantastic - low action all the way up the neck. The sunburst is still very vibrant and the chrome looks fabulous, very few signs of tarnishing. Like many other '59 Fender basses and guitars, no neck date (the mythical reason why is quite amusing) but 59 body date, pot codes and serial number. In summary, a rare bass in enviable condition & priced competitively. Cheers, Si
  9. Paul bought my vintage Jazz Bass and was refreshingly easy to deal with - very straightforward communication, fast payment, no messing about....wonderful !! I can 100% recommend Paul to anyone. Cheers, Si
  10. Hi All, One for the Fender collector here - my 100% original 1966 Bass V with its OHSC. This is an early one, as Fender started making these during the summer of 1965 - and moved to block inlays mid way through 1966. As hopefully you can see from the photos, it is in terrific condition with only a few marks here and there plus one or two dings and dongs (some evidence on the rear of cable marks, albeit very faint). The sunburst is still very vibrant. Unfortunately, the rather unusual dimensions of the Bass V have meant that most are plagued with neck issues, and this one is no exception. The action is set quite high to avoid any buzzing (approx 5mm at the 12th) - any lower than this and it buzzes at the top end like Arthur Askey in full swing (especially the E, A & D strings). The truss rod has given all it has to give. It would need a compression refret to fully fix, I would imagine. Alternatively, you can sit and stare at it lovingly, as I have done for many years !! Any questions, please feel free to ask. Cheers, Si
  11. I live near Woking, birthplace of Paul Weller, Delia Smith, Sean Lock, Harry Hill and Peter Gabriel. What a combination 🤪
  12. Hi All, Up for sale is my practically unplayed transitional period 1965/6 Fender Jazz Bass - one or two dings and dongs but hardly a mark on it. 100% original with OHSC. Lightweight at 8.8lbs. Collector grade condition. August 65 neck date, early 66 pots, typical transitional features. Priced to sell. Cheers, Si
