  1. For those of you with a persuasion for ACGs - it may be worth your time in becoming a member of the ACG Owners group on Facebook. There's going to a be some very nice basses for sale in the near future.

      @TheGreek he's a mutual friend of ours and has no less that 13 ACGs I think and he's planning to sell the majority of them in the near future. They'll be some prototypes and other raritys in there. They may appear on here as I'm sure he's a member here too.

      Pretty sure he is on here (albeit infrequently) as @Scoop

      I might know of him...a bit. ;)

  2. That's pretty much my dream bass 🤤 🤤 🤤 No way I can afford it but maybe one day!
  3. Recently traded my G&L for this lovely 2014 American Standard P Bass - I've been playing bass for about 15 years and have always had a stable of at least 3 basses and yet this is my first proper P Bass! Even in bass shops I've never really tried one as I always thought they were boring and were always going to be available. This is the epitome of "does what it says on the tin" type of bass. Does the wooly old school thump and the proper grind with the tone all the way up. I can definitely see why they are so popular for bands/recording, they just sound right! The neck has just about the right amount of finish on it for me - not a fan of heavy gloss and but this has a light gloss that makes it feel like it's protected but doesn't get sticky. Only thing is the strings - forgot to ask what they were but they are very clanky so could be steels. Might change them for something more refined. I was originally trying to sell my G&L so this may be up for sale in the very near future but I'll enjoy it for a month or so Anyway, pictures!
  4. GAS is a horrible thing.... 😅
  5. Ok....so not quite custom, but custom-ish. Kind of interesting to see another manufacturer go down the configurator route and while the headstock and designs are different and won't be for everyone. Also don't think the price is right either - lots of well respected Jazz/P basses around about €1,000
  6. So average price of TC pedal is ~£100 x 5 I want to be surprised and say it might £300 but that's probably a bit low.
  7. Could it be as simple as 5 options of any toneprint from the database. Could be killer if it is.
  8. Great choice there! As you will see from the Yamaha BB thread on here, a lot of love for both the newer and older models. Happy bassing!
  9. Think this bass has some Daddario Stainless Steels on it so it could just be the tension of those is quite low. Apart from that I can't fault it. Great variety of tones and makes you feel like a wizard 🧙‍♂️
  10. Just spent the past hour noodling on a short scale Elwood. What a great wee bass - only thing I didn't like was it got a bit farty down the low end if you didn't play really lightly. To others with short scale Maruszczyks - do you find this or could it be the specific strings that were on it? Ta
  11. Go on, treat yourself to a lovely new(old) bass this Friday!
  12. Nice choice! You can't really go wrong with a Cort. Will suit all types of music. Oh and GAS = Guitar Acquisition Syndrome. Horrible affliction that has no known cure 😅
  13. Always annoying not to have a decent music shop any where near! Any of the basses from the below search would be great. https://www.bajaao.com/collections/bass-guitars?filters[custom_fields.no_of_strings][0]=5&filters[price][0][from]=20000&filters[price][0][to]=30000&filters[price][1][from]=15000&filters[price][1][to]=20000&limit=36 If I had to pick from that list for 5 String, I would go with the Cort or the Sire - both will be well put together and sound good for all styles. If you want that 6 String, the Ibanez GSR206B will be good starting point. If you could save a tiny bit and maybe get to 33,000 Rupees this Ibanez would be ideal. https://www.bajaao.com/products/ibanez-sr375e-awb-bass-electric-guitar?variant=15488625411 Hope this helps!
  14. And the first one is out on the *used* market £2,150 if you have it lying around! Neck looks amazing!
  15. Regarding strings - while not cheap LaBella do some very bright Tapewounds. Specifically the White Nylon/Copper Nylons. Zero finger noise but still bright enough. Always toyed with an acoustic for noodling but they do take up more room and I am running out of places to hide my basses!
  16. My first bass was the Squier Musicmaster Vista that I still and my first rig was a Leney Ricther 1x12 combo and 1x15 cab. Glorious.
  17. So nipped in to GuitarGuitar to give it a whirl. This bass is LOUD. 18V Active circuit and a simple bass treble control gives you loads of bass but not quite as much treble as I would have thought. Didn't get that MusicMan style treble I imagined but still nice. Couldn't give it a proper test as I was using a Rumble 50 while a kid picking out his first bass got the Markbass 2x10 and 1x15 rig😂 Fit and finish - feels like any other high end fender. Nice, I did notice a wee chip at the pickup rout and I would worry how easily damaged the matt finish could be out in the real world. Looks cool as though if pink is your thing, hopefully the pictures show the differences. It is more pink than the road worn Mexican one. I compared them and I would say the worn neck on the Mexican one feels nicer but still similar. If you like a humbucker but want a jazz bass and have £1500 ready I'd say this is a good shout.
  18. Hi all, He may be a member here so I apologise if this is poor form to be questioning value. I have a guy offering me a Fender Jazz made of a 73 neck, 75 body and EMG pickups in a trade for my 1984 G&L L2000 which I am selling for £900. Thing is, I'm struggling to know if I should be asking for any money my way in the trade? What do we think, how close to £900 is this worth? Thanks!
  19. They do have a very decent selection these days. I can't remember his name off hand but the bass guy in Glasgow knows his stuff and seems to have done some good negotiating to get the too brands to the store. Gone are the days of a single bass wall of Fenders and Ibanez!
  20. Nice! I meant to say, there is a pink one in Glasgow, just need to find a minute to go and try it!
  21. Got some trade offers but ideally would like to sell!
