Lost dogs - basses you wish you could buy back... Have you got it now?

Recommended Posts

The only bass I would buy back would be the vigier passion series III 5 I got about 8 years ago from Ped, and then sold on to fund the purchase of my Warwick streamer stage 2. Nine of my basses now are any I would consider for a sale but still, that vigier was pretty special.

Sold a Tokai Hardpuncher TWICE, because I couldn't quite get the sound I wanted out of her, when really I just didn't know what sort of pickups I was after.

I bought her brand new in a shop in Bath around 2003/4. Made in Japan with new style headstock, cream with matching headstock, gold hardware. I managed to find a rare P bass Pickup cover in gold for it as well.

The last person I sold it to Steve on Finnbass. I believe he still had it according to a post in 2013. I hope to get her back one day, a lot of memories in that bass! Many of my first decent gigs were played on it.

I can see why you'd be regretting selling this - it's a beaut - love white and gold.

When I was 19, (40 years ago!), I bought a (then) 3 year old Fender Jazz. It had been sunburst originally, but the previous owner had stripped and varnished it - except under the scratchplate! It was so great to play, even better when I added a Fender Bassman 50 Export and its matching 2 x 15" cab to the package shortly afterwards. Thought that it would work for me forever and a day.....but one day, I convinced myself that a brand new Shergold Marathon fretless was the way forward for me. Did a straight swap with the music shop in Bristol...they must have laughed their heads off. Sold the amp set-up as well soon afterwards......soooooo stupid.

Couldn't carry it around now, mind....ah but if I had the bass back :unsure:

Ibanez Musician, ivory pearl, 4 knobs, serial number 6850136. My first proper bass, bought for £230 in Birmingham about 1990. I didn't know what I was doing them and couldn't get a decent sound out it so I traded it at Musical Exchanges (wish that was still going) for a Wal fretless which thankfully I still have.
I would love to get the old Ibanez back so if anyone knows where it is...?

Following on from this, the new owner posted to the Travis Bean Resource about something, I replied, a year later, he replied.

The bass is in Oxford... I'm hoping to cop a feel of it when we play there in September. Woop.

Where in Oxford? I might pop down.

Jaydee Supernatural Roadie 2A in tobacco sunburst. Not the flashiest Bass in the world - but I sold something similar to buy another Bass - a flashier looking, signature Jaydee!

I would love to have her back. This was my 2nd ever Bass, and I learnt tons. I feel I would do her more justice now - and not in any weird way you understand...

It would just take too long to have another one made... or would it ?? :)
