  1. Thanks BaggyMan - I'm happy to listen to decent offers, although possibly not that decent !
  2. More than happy to forgive your ignorance.
  3. In answer to numerous PMs - just under 8lbs 4oz......
  4. Hi All, Up for sale is my 1961 slab board Fender Precision Bass with its OHSC. I have owned a number of P basses stretching over its long years of production and in my opinion, this period are the finest. Overall, it is in great condition with the dinks, dongs, scratches, playwear etc etc you might expect. The sunburst is still really vibrant and it plays with a low action all the way up the neck. There are a couple of very small areas on the body rear which have been rather crudely touched up and the rear of the neck has possibly been re-finished, it is difficult to tell but let's assume yes. The rest of the bass is stock with neck date 10-61, pot dates 35th week of 61 and body pencil date May 61. The original case is in terrific condition. Feel free to PM me with any questions or to arrange to view / play with no obligation. I live near Woking in Surrey. Cheers, Si
  5. Hey Muzz - yes, you are spot on.....just a shame my timelord action can't stretch to my hundreds of kids getting grants rather than fees at Uni !! All the best, Si
  6. Hi All, Up for sale is my Fender Bass VI in its original sunburst finish, assembled in 1965. Overall, the VI is in terrific condition with just a few dings and dongs and some signs of buckle wear on the body rear. It plays and sounds fantastic. The neck dates to late '63, pots to late '64 and the serial number to '65 (L63999). The VI was assembled to order and was not popular at the time and so this range of dates is not unusual for this model. (For example, there is one on Andy Baxter's website at the moment with similar ranges) Original mute and trem bar included. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to arrange to view with no obligation. Cheers, Si
  7. Many thanks, three - that is basically it. A guitar / bass collector will be interested in the degree of originality and wear of the instrument based on its age and / or rarity. A very rare instrument can still be collector grade even though it has some play wear and a couple of changes (although not, perhaps, if the changes are irreversible). As the Jazz is from 1971, and therefore at the very edge of 'vintage', I would expect 100% originality (ie. parts intact as though it had just left the factory) and practically no wear to speak of (e.g EXF and above). Leaving aside the nomenclature, this is an exceptional example.
  8. Up for sale is my collector grade 1971 Fender Jazz Bass with its OHSC - apart from one or two very minor dinks, it is in practically unplayed condition. Feel free to PM me with any questions or to arrange to come and view / play with no obligation. Cheers, Si
  9. Here it is again, plus another original example.
  10. Hi All, Up for sale is my 1960 Fender Jazz Bass - the first year of production for this model, known as the "stack knob". This is a rare and fabulous bass, playing with a low action and super light at 8.1lbs. The price reflects a few alterations, as follows - I have tried to include everything for the purposes of full disclosure. It has a very old refinish (I have no idea who carried it out, but it is a fantastic job) both body and neck, a refret, changed nut and the bridge pup is a 1974 (the neck pup is the original). There are numerous dings and dongs in the finish and some larger areas of playwear on the body rear. The chrome cover screws and machine head screws are replacements (the chrome covers and machine heads themselves are original). Two of the machine head screws are missing (the heads have been sheared off and so the screw bodies are still in the wood). The original pickguard has a missing tip and the brazilian rosewood neck has a grain colouring which is very dark on the bass side, getting lighter towards the treble side. Neck stamp is 11/60 and serial number 67361. Pots date to 1960. Case is a non-original hard case. Feel free to ask any questions or arrange to come and have a look. I am happy to consider trades plus cash my way but only for other vintage Fender. Cheers, Si (I have included a photo of the bass sans pickguard etc a la Jaco, as I think it also looks very cool this way !)
  11. Happy to consider realistic offers.
  12. 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
