Is that a good price or a bit high? Generally speaking

Certainly is a good price 👍 £1125 for a signature series top end Yamaha bass is very cool. It’s the Michael Anthony signature with the chilli inlays.

Yeah I’m familiar with the model - it’s just caught my eye, love the colour, the inlays are funny but not off putting. My limited  GCSE French suggests he’s up for a change and open to trades with the figure listed as his starting point. I’ve no need for another bass but you know when you get a wee notion and start thinking.

Don't forget the annoying 20% VAT on imports of used as well as new goods.

@Steve Browning (aka BC's VAT guru) - I'm guessing that even if they met up on a cross channel ferry and simply traded the basses mid-channel for something of equal value and never set foot on each other's national turf then both bass players would each still be treated as importing a bass with 2 x 20% of the value being due to each countries tax authorities as VAT? Whether, in practice, this would ever get picked up without a voluntary disclosure I guess is an entirely separate matter!

Yeah that’s been in the back of my mind. I’d just get my mate in Paris to arrange the deal and he’d stick it in his boot when he’s next over so I guess that’s s be ok?

As long as he pays 20% Vat when he brings it over he would be fine!

Oh Lord as if one new bb being made from an 1980’s classic wasn’t enough, I have 2 in the process and another deal in the pipeline.

I need help.

@Al Krow I think I’m reinstating myself as “Mr BB”.

About bloody time!  Besides you must be single-handedly responsible for approximately 28.35738% of all the posts on this mega thread...😁

Can we therefore start re-using the term a "full Trav" to signify ownership of 4 Yammy BB basses again?

I'm down to a paltry half Trav, right now.

There will be 5 in the fold by the end of next week

Ah yes indeed! Note to self: I need to keep up! 

At least @marleaux62 will be pleased someone else is taking over the mantle of Mr BB from him. For a few weeks anyway - he'll be glad of the respite.

Well…that’s where the bb1300 is coming from.

It’s arriving on Tuesday, my 37th Birthday
