Hi my name is Dave,  i was originally a guitarist with a rock band well 2nd guitar to be precise

haven't played since the 80s we used to support headliners played pubs a few theatres 

and even toned it down for the club circuit.

recently met up with my old band members and we decided to start practicing again 

the bass player didn't rejoin so that left the lead guitarist drummer and me, so i volunteered to play bass

after all it couldn't be so hard? huh little did i know :)

guitars i own bass wise?

Squier / fender vintage modified jazz

Squier/fender classic vibe p bass

Epiphone IV Thunderbird (that's giving me grief at the moment)

and a 2005 american red and white Fender stratocaster 

also a member of talk bass but american times are crazy

they are in bed when i'm about and vice versa

so i look forward to talking bass, learning tricks, and improving myself as a bass player!

regards to all

Alright La!  Welcome to the forum from an Expatriate Scouser now living Down South.

Friendly bunch on here (even the Mancs! 😉) and you can learn a heck of a lot from all sorts of people.

Unfortunately, you will also develop bad habits about "needing" more/better gear from seeing what other people on here have....that's the trade-off I'm afraid.  Worth it though.

Oh and another Red on here can only be good.

Cool.  What caught my eye though was this:

i have always been decent at setting guitars up, fret leveling, sanding, intonation and generally straightening guitars out for people, i'm like i said just learning Bass and there's always stuff to do with a guitar? hence the tools :)

cheers spondon.

      Selling my P-bass. Has a few nicks and scuffs and could probably do with a new bridge and knobs. The ones that are on there now still function well enough for this bass to sound a play fantastic. has a great tone. All electrics are good, no crackles or buzzes. SQ1 serial. Some nasty ugly chips on this bass unfortunately, but it is nearly 40 years old, nothing a skilled luthier can't deal with tho.

      I have some new knobs, a bridge and a new jack socket on order to give it some new bling, I shall upload some new photos when they are fitted. Although if these parts are sub standard they will not be fitted and I shall leave the original stuff on there. We shall see.

      Collection only

      Up for sale my Fano JM4 bass with original Gig Bag in Dakota Red light distressed finishing. Humbucker tone but with jazz bass type ergonomics. Bought new less than a month ago. Really nice bass but I play primarily jazz basses and doing a bit of a summer clean. Lots of positive feedback selling and buying from this site.
      Overview:  USA JM4
      Using the ever-popular JM6 as a springboard, we designed the JM4 Bass to look and feel as though it’s been part of the Fano line from its inception.  The JM4’s classic styling incorporates a 34” scale length, 10” radius fretboard and an early-60’s C Shape neck that feels comfortable and familiar in your hands.  We have also raised the bar in playability and tone with the addition of our proprietary “FanoBird” bass pickups and “HiMax” bridge that offers both top-load and string-through body options.
       
      Each JM4 is hand-built, one at a time from start to finish by one builder in Scottsdale, AZ.  
      Features:
      Body: Alder Neck: Maple (Bolt-on with body color matching upper headcap, 10 degree headstock pitch, vintage style truss rod Neck Shape: Early 60's C Shape .800 - .970 Fingerboard: Indian Rosewood with rolled edges Fingerboard Radius: 10" Frets: 21 Inlay: Aged White Moto (top/side) Scale Length: 34" String Nut: 1.5" Tusq XL Hardware: Nickel Tuners: "Fano" Bass 4-in-line Bridge: Fano HD Bass Pickups: Fano TB Bridge & Neck Controls: Volume, Volume, Tone Finish: Nitrocellulose Lacquer Case & Accessories: "Fano" Custom Gig Bag, Polish Cloth, and Wrench This is a video review of the bass

      *** Now SOLD ***
      Hi Folks 
      Up for sale is my Epiphone Thunderbird + OHSC that I bought from @BreadBinjust before the Covid pandemic hit early last year. I'm looking for £190 or near offer for the bass and it's very nice original hardcase. 
      It's a very lightweight bass, in used 'players condition' and is strung with a set of Detroit flats at the moment and to me anyway, it plays and sounds really nice. 
      It used to belong to @stewblack who said at the time he sold it that it has a bit of rock 'n' roll provenance to it. As Stew put it:
      "Believe it or not this bass was once owned by Rich from Left Side Brain now better known for his work with Blueneck. "
      So there you have it! You can find out more in Stew's For Sale ad from 2019...
      The reason I'm selling this bass isn't that I don't like it; I really do...
      But, since buying the fabulous Sprackenbacker from @Paul S earlier this year for a late 70s vibe recording project, I'm just not using this bass, which is a real shame because it sounds great.
      Try out welcome in Potton, Central East Bedfordshire with obligatory tea/biccies on tap.. 
      I'd prefer collection or a meet up on this, but shipping is possible at a push. 
      Any questions, please ask here or send me a PM. 
      Thanks for looking and here are a few photos.. 
      Nik 👍😊

      Bought from Basschatter Marc S in Nov 2017. PJ mods, Entwhistle p/ups done under his ownership ( Dave Dearnley iirc). The work has been done to a very high standard. I’ve barely played it and gigged it twice.Playing my Jazz bass almost exclusively now but even so I think I may regret letting this one go. Excellent condition just a couple of minor scratches on rear of body. Usual Classic Vibe build quality,one of the darkest rosewood boards i’ve ever seen. Weight- just a smidge over 9lb/4kg. I’ll include the gig bag it came with. Collection preferred (i’m not far from M5  junction 26)but could do a meet up. 
       
                                     UPDATE
      I am now prepared to post this within UK.
