Welcome to the bass department. We have four and five string, fretless and acoustic basses here for a variety of levels. We keep strings from Rotosound and Elixir in stock and carry accessories such as gig bags and cases too. Beginners packages can be found in the Packages Department. All the guitars here are selected for their value, and there are quite a few little gems. I can set up bass guitars, so if you need an action adjusted, that can be done for my usual reasonable (well I think it is ) price.
     
£499

Fender P Bass Standard

A definite standard. Great tone, character and playability in one simple, no nonsense package. This one has the typical solid hand filling neck and slick action that's expected from a Precision, with a good thump from the pickups that sits well in any style of music. Solid. Complete with gig bag, this is a good working and recording instrument that will do the job. Great value.

 

£249

Squier P Bass Special Black & Chrome

Something a bit tasty - a thumping P-Bass with the added J pickup at the bridge for versatility and bite. A well made neck with the right balance between the solid P and the slim J just plays. This is an instrument that punches above its weight. Looks wise it's a classic - the chrome scratchplate just sets off the whole guitar wonderfully. Like it. A lot. Complete with gig bag.

 

£219

Squier Standard P Bass Special

A classic Squier P Bass, with an added J pickup at the bridge. A proper general purpose instrument that can handle virtually anything you need to do. Great value at this price, complete with a gig bag.

Squier Affinity P-Bass

This is a classic bass, in Squier's starter format. A well made instrument with a comfortable neck built for a beginner wanting a quality instrument without breaking the bank. Simple, neat and effective, this also does double duty as a second bass, or for recording. On special complete with a bag and strap. Bargain.

One of the newest series of Squier basses these VMs give the best of the classic instruments, modernised for ease of playing where necessary, and at Squier's fantastic value.

G&L L-2000 Bass

Something of a gem this. G&L have always made a high quality product - being Leo Fender's last company - and these Tribute series are no exception. Superb materials well combined give this a comfortable, modern feel and the versatile electrics, with a combination of phase switching and active tone controls, give a huge variety of sounds. This is an instrument for any role. Pro quality at an affordable price these should be £585. Complete with gig bag.

 

£499

Jackson CMG Concert Bass

Another favourite these are ROCK basses, but they will fit into a multitude of roles with their versatile active electrics. This one has a big neck, ideal for that powerful dig in you sometimes just have to do. This will thump with the best of them. This instrument has come from Fender's 'Bumped&Bashed' so it has a couple of minor little dings in the body - but you'd hardly notice. Hence the good price. Complete with a quality gig bag.

 

SOLD

Cort Action Bass

I bought this bass to get a modern style instrument to fit this price bracket, that still had a decent build - and this fits the bill. Properly made with good balance and a very playable neck this will handle all styles. The pickups are the versatile PJ configuration and - coupled with decent body wood - give a satisfying thump when needed. This is excellent value - complete with gig bag.

 

SOLD

BC Rich Warlock Revenge Bass

Subtle no. Loud yes. Pointy - oh yes. I had to have one of these to satisfy my ROCK cravings. It is, however a very playable instrument, handling the fast runs and solid thumps needed with aplomb. Amazing for such a good value bass. A truly excellent instrument and I'm addind a gig bag, as these are very hard to come by for this style.

 

£249

Shine Violin Bass Right Or Left Hand

Yes, we know what it is - it's fantastic value, that's what! Beautifully made, with a great neck and a solid tone, these do what they say and shine. Comfortable, light, easy to play and unbelievable value. Available in left-handed (of course), for the same price.
