  1. Ideas for 1979 YOB bass

    I think mine was £100 in 1995. Thought I had a brilliant instrument at an excellent price- my bass teacher looked at it in horror and sent me to a more reputable shop to have a fret dress. It had had a hard life before me :-) One sold for just over £400 recently... https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fender-Musicmaster-bass-guitar/323154998957?hash=item4b3d89f6ad:g:1CwAAOSwC6har5eP#vi__app-cvip-panel
  2. Ideas for 1979 YOB bass

    I turn 40 next year. Fortunately I have my yob ( almost) as it was the first bass I ever bought. A 1978 music master. It sounds great, and as it is a short scale it its easy to play. I've seen them on eBay for 400 and a shop in Nottingham had one for £1000. As they are much less sought after than a p bass you would have more choice/ chance of getting a £400 one. I started refurbing it when I was 17, got stuck and left it as a mess until last year when I put some time into respraying it with nitro rattle cans. You could treat the bass as a project if the bike is off the cards?
  3. Refinishing a high end bass

    I think It's pearl buttons on the tuners on these basses

  13. Hi, For sale is my Harley Benton B-35NT-FL Acoustic Bass. Sold! It is a deco- see the stamps. It arrived with a lump on the fret board that caused loads of buzzing and choking of notes. I've levelled the frettboard off and now it plays well with a low action. I don't play it, I had visions of doing coffee shop gigs with my Fiancée on piano that have never happened, so its for sale. Its collection only because A) I would like you to play it/ check it out to be happy its for you I'm lazy and have no packaging material, its massive and one thump from an courier would be the end of it. I'm in Doncaster, Mansfield, Huddersfield and Grantham occasionally for work so I could deliver- subject to you paying for it first and being very flexible about when it gets delivered. Collection very much preferred Down points -There are a couple of D stamps on the back of the neck heel and the back of the head stock. -There are some scratches on the top front of the body where the sand paper slipped while sorting the fret board. These are unnoticable unless you spin the bass to catch the light there. See the pictures, both from ~30cm away. -There is some white paint on the corner of the fretboard from leaning against a painted wall. -Some imperfections on the fretboard -Some marks from the strings on the fretboard -Its massive! Plus points It sold very quickly! Martin
