To me it’s worth that money all day long when you compare it to fodera and Alembic etc which is crazy money.

Totally agree. Bernie's basses are right up there in terms of build quality and aesthetics etc, and...........seem to be competitively priced. Please don't work on that GAS attack button. Help me, for I am weak.

Lovely bass but I ended up getting the Blue Spitfire

That's virtually the same as my old Rumour.

Beautiful bass which sounded and played like a dream...too nice to take out of the house though.

If only I'd won the Eurolottery last night....

Here's my new to me Spitfire to go with my Rumour. The video doesn't do the finish justice but gives you the idea.

You do realise that you are in a GB thread, as in Goodfellow basses - as opposed to an Ibanez GB thread?

Howdy folks!

If anyone is considering purchasing a GB Spitfire imminently, perhaps this video review that I've just posted might sway you in the right direction.

So GB Team, I'm a proud and happy user of a GB Spitfire... Loving it's 'B' to 'G' consistency, hi-fi sound and stupidly low action... So my question is what am I missing from a Rumour? Dangerous question I know as I don't want to create unwanted GAS. What are the key differences as I've not played one?

Beautiful design, amazing build quality, super balance, comfort and ergonomics.

This beauty is now mine!.

Fabulous construction, playability and tones - I think I've reached Bass nirvana.

So comfortable, balanced and perfect in feel. I never really liked Single cut designs before I saw my first Merlin, but I think this shape looks great, and the timbers are beautifully crafted as all of Bernie's products are. Facings on the body and headstock are black american walnut (I think) on a spalted maple body. Not sure what the neck laminations are - maple, walnut, with ebony detail stips between the neck and wings, and between the body and top. The body is chambered, coming in at just over 9lb.

The electronics package features two GB single coil pickups, volume, pickup blend, stacked bass / treble control, stacked parametric mid (boost/cut on top and centre frequency below), passive tone knob with active/passive switch. The passive tone works in active mode, giving you all the tone shaping you could need, as well as a pure passive mode for all of those sounds. As the pickups are single coil, the series/parallel switch has been configured as a kill switch. which is very useful.

This is a beautifully constructed and thoughtfully designed instrument from the master, Bernie Goodfellow. Thankyou Bernie, for your superb craftsmanship. A significant investment, to be sure, but I'm a very, very happy camper!.

P.S. sorry for the crappy smartphone photos - really doesn't do it justice.

Not sure if this qualifies as a GB but this is my Lowden built Goodfellow Classic 5.

Sounds and plays wonderfully.

It's all part of the GB story or 'canon' as our young friends are fond of saying now. Others may know better than me but I think it depends on when it was built so it may be a Bernie with Lowden or from a time after they parted ways. Either way, it's lovely.
