New Chowny Bass model - Route 51

Recommended Posts

Ok - (had to go desktop to post this, as my mobile was being annoying)

Lookit - new '51 P Bass model in 32”  scale announced from the ever inventive @Chownybass

Reading further: Retrovibe will offer a Custom version too. This could be very GAS-inducing!

Is it short scale or 32" (medium scale)?

Edited! Didn’t know one wasn’t the other.

Lovely!  Would love one with tapewounds for recording - bet it would sound ace!  Nice to see the proper bridge as opposed to the ridiculously poor traditional design.

They've named a bass after a Cycle Route from Milton Keynes to Felixstowe?

They're nice fellas, but how is this inventive?

Is it the scale length?

It's in honour of Felixstowe's most famous bass playing resident.

I didn’t notice the slight change in the headstock shape. I think I like it better than F’s  original. Looking forward to seeing them once in production.

As long as the headstock is different enough (and I'd say this is)

 

Really, the headstock looks very similar, far more so than the HB version.

Short / Medium / Long scale.

30" / 32" / 34"... Although I'd say 35" is probably considered the "long scale" in basses.

I want to like them as my first Fender was a '51RE. Absolutely loved it but sold it on regretfully.

 

A 32" '51 just won't be the same, perhaps a more 'clunky' sound? 🧐

Oh that blue one....

Please tell me they're ridiculously expensive and I could never  afford it...

Doesn't have to be true - just tell me that, someone, pleeeeease…...

About £600-ish is the figure we’re working to at the moment

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

I appreciate your prompt provision of relevant information, Mr. C.....but you're really not helping with the GAS here.

What you're not taking into account here is that my motivation is selfish and I don't have your best interests at heart. :)

Unless your best interests align with buying a bass. In which case... I'm your best friend.

      Konig & Meyer Double Bass Stool is for sale.
      Bought 9 years ago, it has had a light use. It is a very good condition. Backrest and Footrest are both removable.
      Height: 58-82 cm
      Weight: 8.5 kg(including backrest and footrest)
                   6.5 kg(without backrest)
      Collection in person preferred, but we can drop it off if within 5 miles from central Cambridge.

      A white, single-ply plastic pickguard/scratchplate for a standard P-bass. Holes cut for standard split pickup, volume and tone controls, and jack socket. 13 countersunk screwholes, and two either side of the pickup hole, should you wish to add an ashtray.
      I won't lie: this is an old, cheap part, taken from a Brandoni self-assembly kit I acquired around 2000-1.The original white colour has faded, but apart from a bit of scuffing on the edges, it's in pretty good nick. Ideal for anyone looking to complete a parts bass on the cheap. Free to a loving owner; this comes from a smoke free home, we have had cats but neither of them have sat on this scratchplate to the best of my knowledge.
      (I'll pop a photo in here once I've cleaned it up!)

      For sale is a Panda Audio Future Impact v3 Bass Synth.
      Bought the pedal in May 2020 and has only seen use at home. Never rehearsed or gigged with the pedal so is in excellent condition, as can be seen in the photos.
      These are very powerful, very versatile synth pedals. Based off of the original Akai Deep Impact pedal and famed for its use by Chris Wolstenholme of Muse.
      A tonne of info on the FI v3 here: http://pandamidi.com/bass-guitar-synth/
      Bought new for €299, open to sensible offers.
      Cash on collection preferred from South East London.
