  1. Cheap BB234 for someone living near Glasgow https://reverb.com/item/41306145-yamaha-bb234-bl-4-string-black?utm_source=rev-ios-app&utm_medium=ios-share&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=41306145
  2. There should be professional support groups for those with an uncontrollable fixation on one particular brand
  3. ‘Ideal 1st bass’ ’Beginner’s bass’ ’Would suit beginner’ These phrases and more are often used to describe a sub £300 instrument. If you think about it, the ideal beginners bass would be a nicely set up Fodera, not a Squier Affinity P-bass. Not very practical, I grant you but I know which one I would have preferred during my ‘beginners’ phase. You often see the phrase on a sale listing, ‘Would suit beginner’ or ‘suitable as backup to the pro or semi-pro’. Quality control on ‘affordable’ instruments, as I believe they should be referred to, is a lot higher than when I was a noobie. CNC machinery is capable of churning out identical guitars all day (and night) consistently. Those that have seen the thread know that I recently, unknowingly, bought a Harley Benton JB75. The brand name had been removed and the headstock reshaped to my hide it’s identity but the Basschat detectives saw through the smoke screen. I have to admit that I have fallen in love with it. I have owned CIJ P-Bass. P-Mexican, JV Squier, SQ Squier in the past and I would happily stack the Harley against them all
  4. The drummer is a good friend of mine and he's a mean bass player. He gives drum. bass and guitar lessons
  5. I have considered something similar but more ‘jokey’ to this in the past, Mojo’s Jizzmaster in Fender script or similar, which would be funny for about 20 seconds
  6. I know that this is an area that divides opinion quite strongly but this poll was initiated by a Porsche Speedster replica that recently passed through our workshop. Based on modern Beetle running gear, the kit was top quality and only an Porsche aficionado would be able to tell that it wasn't a genuine restoration project without inspecting it carefully. The point is, that it was badged as a Porsche not a jokey 'Porch' or such like. Folks that put Fender decals on their Squiers or other replica are often looked down upon or slammed by the community but we happily accept Fender decals on Limelight basses. What does everyone think?
  7. Having discovered that it’s a Harley Benton, I wish I’d left it alone
  8. Harley Benton JB75 SB Deffo an HB.......robbed
  9. Well spotted. That gap keeps opening up and I have to close it up again, on a regular basis
  10. The bridge screw configuration, brass saddles and Wilkinson pickups all point to it being a Harley Benton JB-75sw, in which case, at £140, I’ve been had. I bet it wasn’t that much new
