  1. Basic easy to understand starter video.... (edit: didn't notice sexist banter at beginning - please skip to 0.07 to miss it)
  2. Left handed Tanglewood, Solid Mahogany top and back, discreet B Band electrics with volume control just inside soundhole. In excellent condition.Well setup and plays beautifully... just fitted new GHS silk and steel strings..
  3. Thank you, and yes very, very rare to see a lefty- rarer still one up for sale ....
  4. After much deliberation, I am letting go of my faithful Jazz... I bought her as used from a Northampton music shop late 80's , and was my only bass for decades.Has some dings and scratches but really nice condition for her age. The original pickups started to get a little less bold, so the Duncan Designed pickups were a quick fix for an upcoming gig(but the originals will come supplied). Beautiful figuring on the maple neck and perfect frets. Wearing Ti flats and comes with a road worn homemade case. Rare opportunity to grab a quality vintage lefty...
  5. That's the beauty of this.. works for any string gauge you want to put on ( the bottom of the slot and string is a constant) - I set up basses like this too .
  6. forgot to mention.. with light strings the nut has to be spot on - or there will be zero chance of staying in tune at the lower frets. The following method has served me well for years... 1) fret string a the 3rd fret 2) tap string onto the top of the first fret (the wire itself), you will almost certainly feel the string move ( too much clearance) before you hear a metallic click. 3) very carefully lower nut slot (keeping the break angle) until you feel no movement but you still hear a click as you tap (any further is to far and will fret buzz). Err on the side of caution here until confident. 4) repeat until all strings are at optimum.
  7. That looks fantastic! Get him playing some power chords through an overdriven amp and you'll have him hooked... Easy cheezy like rhythm parts for Anarchy in the UK,Teenage Kicks and Sin City to get him going - play along to help out too, if you can.
  8. 10's on a les paul will feel like 9's on a fender.. i find that I need 10's to get any chance of chords without them squirming around too much due to the lower tension.
  9. . [quote name='Spike Vincent' timestamp='1479320661' post='3175655'] Not cool.They could be put on proper left handed instruments. [/quote] For a lefty, it gives the option of loads of 'righty' necks to use.. This maple strat neck is far better than the lefty r/w it came with.
  10. We have one of these for the right handers in the house.. it's a fantastic bass! Has a massive sound from the P p/u,and so easy to zip around the fretboard. A real bargain at this price!
  11. I got to talking music with a chap (Joe Jeffery) who regularly walked his dog (Dexter) past our work site... Turns out he's a Blackstar Artist and Auden guitar endorser, currently playing guitar with Beau Holland. linkage: [url="https://soundcloud.com/beauholland/love-like-you-demo"]https://soundcloud.c...e-like-you-demo[/url]
  12. Great deal on a metronome... fast delivery and well packed. Thanks Dennis!
  13. I'd like to take the metronome, if still available... I'll pm later today
  14. If your computer can handle it ... record and mix in 24/88.2k rather than 44.1 or 48k. A startling improvement in clarity/quality for free!
  15. Man, with that sort of quality at 48k - I'm confident you'll love working at 88.2 ( it's like lifting a blanket off your monitors...) Again, great song and mix... please keep 'attempting' those vocals so I can hear more of your work.
