  1. Hi, I´m doing a complete upgrade (pickups, pre-amp, tuners,...) on a good friend´s favorite bass, but I´m having trouble finding a good set of pickups that match the Ibby´s tight string spacing (16,5mm), so I´m hoping someone here can give me some advice on where to look. We´ve been looking at Aguilar (seems to be sold out everywhere) and Nordstrand drop in replacements for the Bartolini MKI pickups that are currently in there, but even though I was able to find those in the right size (P2) the string spacing seems to be set at 19mm for all the options I could find online, whilst the Ibby only has a 16,5mm spacing. At this point we´re kinda bummed as he uses this bass a lot and right now it´s in pieces on my desk waiting for a new set of pickups that I seem unable to find, so any help/advice on this topic will be very much appreciated... Thanks in advance!! Don
  2. I like it a lot, I'm driving it with a two notes Le Bass tube pre-amp and Markbass compressore (also with a tube) and I'm loving the sound so far.. If I had known I would've snapped up your 1000Watt version tho, as you can never have too much power i.m.o. :D
  3. Darn, I just bought a brand new Baby sumo last week.. If only I had known..
  4. Mmm.. I'm very tempted by both cabs... If my Orange amp sells I'll get back to you..
  5. EDIT: Just realised that I accidentally put a set of P-pickup covers on there in the picture instead of Jazz pickup covers. Excuse me for that please, I've never used them before so I had no idea. I do have both in stock tho so the bass will ofcourse be delivered with the right set of pickups covers (see photo). Feel free to contact me if you're looking for a set of covers as I have several spare sets of both J and P pickup covers in stock atm.
  6. For those looking for the Precision bass feel with a jazz bass sound, here's the Thunder Gear P-Jazz. A solid, stable, one-piece maple P-bass neck with a 42mm nut width sporting a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with block inlays paired with a lightweight Alder Jazz bass body. The pickups sound a lot like the Tonerider jazz set that you can also find in some of the CV series jazz basses. This bass combines the robust feel and stability of a vintage precision bass neck with the versatility and good looks of a Jazz bass for relatively little money. You also get a set of chrome caps, so you can expand the vintage look even further and for those who are not a fan of tort pickguards, there is also a black pickguard included in the sale so you can swap and compare to your heart's content. Despite the fairly substantial neck, this bass comes in at just 4.2kg. total, so it's definitely not a neck-breaker. The bass comes equipped with a fresh set of D'addario nickel roundwound strings 45-100 gauge and had a full set-up with medium low action, buzz free and offers excellent playability so she's ready for anything really.. This is a brand new instrument, nog case or gigbag included, but I can ship it double or triple boxed with loads of protective materials, please check my feedback, I've been called 'the packaging king" a number of times by previous buyers here on the forum. PRICEDROP TO 295GBP! Interested in trades with a lightweight cab or combo (pref. a GR bass, Eich amps or "made in Italy" Markbass), can ad cash ofcourse... Kind regards, Donovan
  7. Since I had some queries about the total value of this instrument, here's a little overview of the cost of the parts and labour that went into this: I had to import the Schecter as the grey one wasn't available anywhere in Europe at the time, so I payed 791Euro + shipping and import/customs costs for the Schecter. The Hipshot Ultralites (USA made version not the licensed ones!) were 158Euro. The Aguilar AG 4P-60 pickup was 151Euro. The Omega Bass bridge was 88E. Then there's probably another 50 Euro's in little parts like the Hipshot speed knobs, string tree, D'addario eliptical strap holders, CTS pot's , Switchcraft jack, wiring and screws. And around 40Euro to have the frets and nut looked after by my teacher and master luthier. It also comes with a gigbag that was 24.99Euro So with this alone I've already got 1302 Euros invested in this (and then I'm not even including the import/customs costs that I had to pay for the body and neck + the extra set of Labella flatwound strings that I'm including in the sale). Of course I do understand I will never get my money out of this built again, but I will now consider near offers and trade deals for this little beaut. Trade offers regarding lightweight bass-cabs will be considered. Kind regards, Donovan
  8. Hi due to a double order I have a brand new Orange Terror Bass MKII available (this is the newest version with the "clean" switch). The amp is unused, still boxed and comes with matching Orange gigbag. These are sold out in most places, so if you're in Europe and you're looking for one of these, this is your chance to snap one up. Price in euros: 649 Euros => PRICE DROP TO 425GBP/ 500Euro for a quick sale! Just trying to get some of my money back out of it, but I'm willing to consider trade offers concerning one or two lightweight bass cabs (can ad cash ofcourse...) a Tech 21 VT Bass DI or a nice envelope filter. Only wanting to sell/trade this because I accidentally bought two of these after being on the lookout for one for ages and I'm now stuck with it as I had to import them due to them being sold out all over Europe at the time of ordering.. 🙄 I'm based in Ghent, Belgium.
  9. I've tested the fretted version of this bass for a German music store a while back and it absolutely killed! Loved the sound and playability of it and have been lusting for the 5-string fretless version of it ever since (they only had the 5 string fretted and 4 string fretless version of it in stock at the time). I.m.e. most of them are relatively heavy tho, so if you have a lightweight one that's definitely an advantage for the potential buyer! I'd love this, but I would have to sell some other gear first to justify buying it, so I guess someone else will probably snap this up before I manage to get the money together. It definitely is a great sounding instrument and I haven't seen a lot of the 5 string fretless versions for sale on the used market, so that makes it a bit of a rare beast. G.L.W.T.S.!
  10. I might be interested in the TH500, are you willing to ship to the EU?
  11. I use a Mesa D800 with one or two Barefaced S210´s and this rig slays! ❤️ Sold my old Ampeg fridge and tube amp because of it, it´s that good of a rig. GLWTS
  12. Yes, the website is still up, yet there are no prices listed anymore, the contact form doesn't work and all the dealers now have the handbox amps listed as "no longer available"... I'm really gutted as I was lusting for a tube amp to go with my Barefaced s210's..
