  1. MMMMMMMMM ....goodfellow, full of yummy fat sounding goodness.... KGB birkenhead makes some very nice basses, all out works of art or as basic as you want, just tell him what you want, and he will build it,.... http://kgb-music.co.uk/gallery.htm

  4. it had big washers under the bridge making the action high, also a hole with a bolt in it under where the front strap button is, the dots were all different colours, and the fretboard needed badly oiling, and just setting up really, its amazing how you can stretch out jobs when the option is painting the hall 🙂 here is some info on it, as far as i know, feel free to correct me, 1960s Zenta TEZ, super rare early Matsumoku made, couple of three and four knob ones floating around, not many of these earlyer two knob, whats great about this bass is the back pickup, it has a great honky sort of sound being closer to the bridge than the later ones, really usable, worth doing a vid for just to hear it, quality wise some good bits some bad but has lasted well so not so bad bits, , 1 i has a multi laminated neck, on saying this it has a lowish action, tuners not bad, have had allot worse, bridge abit naff as if you play too hard as i do you can move the string on to the next slot on the barol,, pickups though not strong do have a sound all of there own quite good infact and also nice big fat extendible pole pieces via a slot screwdriver, neck binding very good body binding front and back very good, and has a zero fret, and a solid 6 bolt neck, all in all not bad, usable and looks super cool, im thinking of using it in the next band vid. im just wondering if i can get a bigsby for this.

    Jap Crap Porn

    A 10 year old thread back to life 🙂 Jap crap, here ya go, 1960s Zenta TEZ, super rare early Matsumoku made, couple of three and four knob ones floating around but not many of these earlyer two knob ones, Controls are pot 1 Vol pot 2 tone pick up selector switch. whats great about this bass is the back pickup, it has a great honky sort of sound being closer to the bridge than the later ones, really usable, worth doing a vid for just to hear it, the front neck pick has that deep hollow sound that sounds a bit distant not very usable for me, when both pick ups are on it still has that hollow sound though if muted while playing aka rocco prestia style then you do get that nice thump to the notes, i can see where a blend knob would be a better option here as i would like the have 75% bridge and 25% neck just to add a bit of bass to that honk without rolling the tone off,. Quality wise some good bits and some bad bits but it has lasted well so may be not so bad bits, , 1 it has a multi laminated neck, on saying this it has a lowish action, tuners not bad, have had allot worse, bridge is a bit naff if you play too hard as i do you can move the string on to the next slot on the barol,, pickups though not strong do have a sound all of there own quite good infact esp that rear one, it also has nice big fat extendible pole pieces via a slot screwdriver, neck binding very good body binding front and back very good, and has a zero fret, and a solid 6 bolts for the neck, all in all not bad, usable and looks super cool, im thinking of using it in the next band vid. im just wondering if i can get a bigsby for this.
  7. Hi all, sorry i have been soooo bizzy, i will give kev a bell this weekend to see if we can fix a date for this year. pref when its a bit warmer and people wont get snowed in.
  8. Bass player wanted for Fusion jazzy stuff Warrington. Its all original stuff so the world is your oyster ! If interested let me know and i will pass on your number and give you a contact number.
  9. Some mods that might help, given the pickups are ok....worth a try maybe. on some wiring the earth runs through the pot to the actual plate, so the control plate is the earth run to the jack socket, anything to save a bit of wire !, you could try to tighten all the pot screws and jack socket screw ? If you feel like a bit of a project then here are two mods that made mine much more reliable for over 20 odd years with no problems, ever. It also sorts out that crackly sound jazz's get when the jack socket gets a baggy ring, owww errrrr misses 🙂 1, put a stereo jack socket in, this then will have a pin you can solder to that has a prong contact on to the sleeve of you input jack, as well as the ring of the socket. 2, Run a solid piece of twin and earth copper wire over the top of all the pots right to the lug of the jack socket, then solder to top of pots and jack socket, with a bit of wire sleeving on it between the pots. then solder a link to the other earth lug on the jack socket, ( or just bend the end of the long one and do it in one) This is the Hogie 1, Mod simple, tidy, solid, reliable. 100% good sig. ( image is only to show the earth mod)

  12. It always amazes me that a back line of a band learn every note and are usually solid but for the most brass players who are reading always manage to [email protected] up and play without commitment to notes and they are reading ! i think im going to adopt Mr Toscanini work practice and get my whip out 🙂
