  1. I've had a lot of trade offers and cash offers so just to reiterate my point within the advert ; **NO OFFERS** **NO TRADES** I'm not desperate to sell. If it stays as a result of this then I'm very happy! Here we have my 2004 Modulus Flea in Blue Flake. Seymour Duncan Pickup and Bartolini NTBT 2-band preamp. New car is forcing sale. (Bang goes my Wal deposit!) Condition I'd rate as 8/10. A few barely noticeable dings in the finish, worse of which is a (filled in) chip near the jack socket. There is the usual lacquer crack at neck joint, but is just in the finish and is not structural. (All 3 of my Fleas have had this). Neck is straight and unmarked, strings are fairly new. Frets are superb. Can be seen and heard in action on my YouTube channel here ; https://youtu.be/DL74b_tlTk0 Comes with branded Modulus hardcase. Strictly no offers. No trades. Collection preferred or will travel a pretty large radius to myself here near Stratford-Upon-Avon to facilitate pickup for small fuel contribution. Will NOT ship as I would want any prospective buyer to view a bass of this value first to ensure they are happy and to avoid any courier mishaps. Thanks for looking

  3. I really should have been looking at Basschat yesterday, I would have had this. 😰😰😰
  4. That's one of Flea's own brand 'Fleabasses'
  5. Just as a retort to the TC bashing regarding power output, the BQ and BH series heads do not suffer with the goosed power ratings, they give out exactly what they say on the tin. This problem affected the RH series heads only. My BH550 made mincemeat of my LM2 and GK MB500.
  6. I just opened up the control plate of my Flea and my jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw it has the Bartolini NTBT pre-amp!!. It was sold as Aguilar by the shop! Goes to show though what a massive difference pickups can make, as it sounds so very different to my old Lane Poor/NTBT Flea.

  8. I always found Gumtree to be the absolute pits when it comes to selling bass gear. Absolutely full of chancers and scammers. Would not recommend remotely.
  9. Thanks for looking into it. That's surprised me!
  10. I totally get it with cabs, older ones are huge, cumbersome and very heavy, so I don't feel there's enough of a positive trade off for that, especially since most modern cabs just flat out sound better and can go louder and lower. When it comes to amp heads though, age/weight don't bother me. It's all about the tone. Aside from some valve amps, even a lot of older 'lead sled' type amps aren't that heavy or awkward in the general scheme of things. The price of some of these are a total bargain, especially considering most of the time, they flat out just sound better ( IMO, IME etc).
  11. There is 'this' much time left before Paul buggers off and forms The Style Council.
  12. Basses described as 'upgraded'. With that being an incredibly subjective thing, I always give plus points to people who correctly describe them as 'modified' instead.
  13. Early era Warwick basses have the thinnest necks I've ever played. My old 91' Stage One had a pencil thin neck - was awesome.
  14. He used Mesa Diesel cabs on the Californication tour, it was the By The Way tour that saw him switch to GK RBH cabs.
  15. I don't usually go for nickels as they die very, very quickly in my hands, but had heard they are supposed to have a warmer, more mid orientated tone (as a gross generalisation). It's been a long time since I bought them so my memory fails me. Anyone have any experience of steels that really struck you with a strong mid-range output? As a reference, I tend to use D'addario Pro Steels, Dunlop Super Brights (bit too much on the Flea, though) and Elixir steels when my wallet will stretch to them.
