Yep just delivered it to the new owner, Marty. While I enjoyed picking it up occasionally at home it was never a go to bass for me at gigs. Current love is a custom shop 59 relic precision which I picked up second hand through Richie. Still had to pay top dollar for it despite Richie working hard on my behalf but it is a magic instrument - ticks all the boxes for me. Not every custom shop bass I have owned falls into that category.As I grow older I am trying to just hang on to basses that are "special" for me, if they don't get played or don't have that X factor out they go.
By the way, I heard a few tracks from your new Cabin Fevre album the other day. Very tasty songs and playing I thought.

Ashdown CTM 300 watt valve head

Crikey dick can anyone vouch for these? I really like the Ashdown ABM heads but obviously this is significantly different and Icertainly don't have a skill set that includes how to function efficiently with valves.

Start price seems insanely low to?

Good purchase, Foal. At that price you can't go wrong. The Markbass 300 tube head is a bit of a gift too. But then I am just a tube addict...... :oops:

A Warwick LWA 1000 light weight bass amp which has a faulty fan:

I have heard this model amp one time a little while back when Andy Irvine was doing a clinic at Rockshop K Road. Sounded pretty good, i thought.

This is also pretty tempting - http://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instrume ... 885674.htm . A UK made Ashdown rig with some wear and tear but i bet it still sounds great. Familiar sounding seller/username i think too lol :). Anyways, very good/fair starting price for a UK made Ashdown

Done a lot of gigs, if it sells I'll miss it.
