    Oh nice - something exciting about going full custom!

    I assume you've already wasted/invested a huge chunk of your time on this then?

    They're well thought of for the money...

    Thanks both - will probably pull the trigger on payday next week, seems rude not to at that price.

    I did like the Yamaha BB's a couple of years ago, just didn't fancy the PJ configuration - I've gone full old man & only seem to want to play standard Precisions nowadays. I do like how Fender derivatives are easy to modify/upgrade too.

    60's P bass, white with thier new faux-rosewood fretboard. Price wise I'm fine with the 350 area (these are 320) but anything much more than that isn't really worth it as I've already got a very nice P that I'd play more.

    This is what I'm thinking:

    Anyone played any of the recent (2019) Squier Classic Vibe series? I have a hankering for round wounds again but don't want to take the flats off my nice bass, would also be good to have a cheapy that I can take out & not worry about...

    Very difficult to beat a P-bass! They might not be as flashy as the other two but they do just work.
    Always liked the looks of Thunderbirds but found it hard to get the sound to sit nicely in a band environment (though that could of course be down to me or the band or both!).
    My mind just can't process fanned frets so have never tried a Dingwall but they get a lot of love on Bass Chat.

    Yes - they were very good about the guarantee. In this instance they opted to just send me a new one rather than fixing the old one, they requested the label was cut out so they know that bag has been dealt with by them (so they won't be fixing it again).
    With its new owner now - hopefully they can get some good use out of it!

    Anyone want a free bass?

    Washburn XB-125 - Functional 5 string for someone that wants to dabble with the extra string before splashing the cash on a new one. Or just for someone looking for a free 1st bass. It works and stays in tune but it wouldn't feel right charging for it.

    Black. Alder body. Maple neck with rosewood board. P-style pickup.

    It's had a hard life - gigged heavily in the early 00's, the body is bashed, it has an old band name scratched into the back, the strap pin has been pulled out so many times its just taped on (has worked like this for many a gig), the neck has a crack down both sides from it hitting the roof at one too many venues (it has been like this for about the last decade and hasn't given way yet, though I don't know what would happen if you took the strings off), there's also a minor crack on the head stock.

    Looks like the below & lives in Deptford if you want it.

    All gone now - thanks!

    Freecycle:
    Mission Workshop Rummy Bag - in black. Heavily used & the waterproof zip on the zip up pocket is broken so you can't really use it in "roll-top" mode, fine if you're just using it with the front clips though. Mission Workshop replaced it with a new bag under warranty (the label is now cut out), I did debate how fair it is giving one away when they've replaced it for me but the AQA thread thought it was fine.

    Selle Italia XO saddle. Used but serviceable. The shape/size is not to my fitting.

    Collection in Deptford SE8 or near center point WC1V (office hours). Or somewhere in between while I'm commuting.
