    Bought some electronic (whisper it) ...drums from Kev. All good and a smooth transaction conducted within lockdown guidelines, which meant no tea or biscuits. But you gotta do what you gotta do. Thanks Kev.

    Casapete Feedback!

    Sold Pete a Jazz Bass. Payment was super-swift and we enjoyed extensive comms at every stage as UPS took their own sweet time with delivery, but nevertheless a smooth transaction. Thanks Pete.
  3. I needed a Zoom B1on and lo, there was one. Item arrived swiftly and well-packed. So well-packed that it took ages to open, but that's how it should be. Smooth transaction, great comms and my recommendation. Thanks Stew.
  4. TMI, probably. 😁 You're very kind, but I really only popped in to annoy everyone, then pop out again. Like a hernia.
  5. I have been playing for a few years as it happens.... Don't know why I haven't had much exposure to fretless, probably because I'm not much into Jaco or the Pino 'mwah' thing et al. Never too late though, I'm just going to have to play one and see what's what. Thanks.
  6. Sold Jeff some La Bellas. Super-fast payment, great comms and a very smooth deal. Recommended!

  8. Brilliant! Bare-faced lying. Works every time.
  9. Thanks very much, that's what I was fearing. Ay caramba! The current mrs discreet will have my love-spuds on toast.
  10. Lord have mercy, it turns out Ibanez Musician GAS is just like any other GAS, only worse! Quick question for you fretless players out there: How long did it take you to become proficient on a fretless? Can you just pick one up and play it? Or does it take days, or weeks, or months to learn? I thank you!
  11. Here's a thing, I bought a small bottle of nail polish to touch up a few of the dings and dents in the bass and hopefully prevent any further degradation (that's my excuse, anyway). Bit difficult to colour match online, so it was a gamble. But it's just about perfect. What are the odds??
  12. Chris bought my Squier CV 70s P. Instant payment and great comms. Recommended. Thanks, Chris.
  13. Thank you! Golden era, eh..? I did not know that, but it sure as hell plays and sounds like it. I'm really glad that I picked it up, but also sad that I didn't do so thirty-odd years ago. But let's be positive, I may have left this Earth without ever having owned one at all!
  14. Tempting, and I thank you, but I'm really after the MC-924 DS. And I like frets.
  15. I know he got his MC-924 (or at least one of them) from Bass Japan Direct. http://www.bassjapandirect.com/index.html
  16. Totally agree, but why make it difficult for those fingers?
  17. So do I! The more I live with it the more I realise practically every bass I've ever had was badly-made and mediocre-sounding! There, I've said it!
  18. I've seen it! But the preamp is missing.
  19. The current Mrs discreet would refer to you as an 'enabler'. 😁
  20. Well... I remained GAS-free for very nearly a day. But now I have clouds of GAS for an MC-924 DS. DS stands for Dark Stain... the wood-finish Wal-alike. I'll need one with flats on, won't I??
  21. It sure is. You could probably part it out for more than the asking price, if you wanted. First come first served! It's got to go!
