Bass Centre Guy Pratt "Betsy" jazz bass

Recommended Posts

I didn't even notice it when I was there, too much emphasis on the various Brian Mays with their striking finishes. Opportunity missed by the Bass Centre there.

They sorted the ugly headstock and the ugly logo! Smart move, these actually look pretty appealing now.

That IS nice. Good job I don’t get on with a Jazzes, but if I did, that looks like a solid choice.

'ow much?

I assume it's one of the British Bass Masters series, so could be anywhere between around £400 to £2500.

Doesn't have the relic work that the NWR sig does, so it'll be cheaper than that one (£1500) but does have different pickups from the standard Jive so it's not just a stock model with a different finish. Maybe £500ish? I'd definitely be interested at that price range.

Looks like just another J-bass copy to me.

What makes it special/different to all the other J-basses?

The colour?

It's not pink, but I just picked this up used for £120 - if you know of a better jazz style bass for the money let me know.....

Vintage VJ74 Reissue's can be found used around the same price.

How many basses must they honestly be selling at £2.5 k?

Why play that when you can play the original Betsy as I did (briefly😀) at the Mansons Guitar Show some years back whilst hanging out with Guy.
