OK, what we have here is an Avon P-bass, model number 3428, from the mid 1970's. Made in Japan, with what looks like a 3 piece ash body and maple neck.
As far as I know it's all original, with the exception of the knobs which are recent due to the originals having gone walkabout for some reason. Plays and sounds great, strung with 45-100 D'Addarios. Action is medium / low. Only thing it could do with are two machine head bushings - the tuners all work fine though. Weight wise it's on the lighter side - my rather primitive scales say around 7.5 to 8 lbs, and it does feel like it. For a 40+ year old bass it's in pretty good condition - some marks etc but nothing horrible. PM me for more pics if you're interested. All in all a great Japanese P-bass for the price of a s/h Squier.
Cash on collection greatly preferred - I'm in East Yorkshire 10 miles west of Hull. Possible help with delivery / meet up, depending on where and when of course. I do travel around a bit, so you never know! Postage / courier is an option, but would probably need to involve a hard case at an additional cost.
Any questions please ask, cheers.
As advertised, consisting of base unit, keyboard and mouse. Original CRT monitor has long since bitten the dust. Owned by me since new (mid-late '80s). Can't remember what's on it but there will be some games of the period, plus Impression and Pipedream and possibly some other stuff as well. I have all the original manuals for the machine. I also have original disks and user manuals for most of the software. It worked ok the last time I fired it up a few years ago.
As indicated, this unit was upgraded to A440 spec and fitted with a W.E. 30mHz processor replacing the original 20mHz jobbie. I'm told there's a bit of a market for this type of kit but it's moved house with us several times and I haven't found that market yet. Hopefully someone around here knows more about it than I do...
We're moving house soon so I don't have the time to do any P&P. Collection/handover only please. I live in the Solihull area not far from the A34 Stratford Road but can travel within reason.

Hi, I was playing a gig at a venue that has a shop built onto it and i came across this old Carlsbro bass head.
I was very tempted to buy it just to see what it was like, they wanted £60 for the bass head and £50 for the slave.
Can anyone give me some information on this? is it a good price or will it be a waste of money?
Never used Carlsbro before, it was the vintage look that drew me to it.

This is probably over 40 years old! It powers up and plays fine, but can sometimes be slightly intermittent so could do with a good service I think. May be just needing the pots cleaned etc, but selling it as 'spares and repairs' so as not to be misleading. Overall it's in good condition for it's age, and the backlit front panel works fine and is not cracked, unlike many you see advertised.
Amp is in East Yorkshire, west of Hull. Collection preferred but meet up or delivery possible. Am guessing postage would be around £12, but can get an accurate quote if you're interested Also a few more pics available if you want to PM me. Cheers.
