No, that was a 6 string.

The bass went to someone else.

Not slap friendly? Uhm, okay... That\'s nuts!

On a side note, gosh I've been busy, have I really not been here in two weeks?

maybe its just my hands' position, but for me the neck pup is far too close to the neck for slap duties, I'm forever catching the pup and missing the pop.

Thanks for that - interesting. Certainy lightweight. I have a Hohner B2A headless thing that must be made of dark matter, as it is nearly 8lbs despite the lack of body.

I was going to offer up one of my basses by way of a trade - a Peavey Fury II, but in the course of picking it up to describe it decided I don't want to part with it yet - it is too nice!!

Back to the drawing board... do you have something in mind or are you looking for a left of field entry?

Well to be honest I really want a thunder 2 bass, but I'm not sure if anyone would consider it a fair trade unless the thunder is slightly battle scarred like this quantum is.
Failing that, I will listen to all offers, but really don't want to sell for cash as it will most likely go towards the house bills! leaving me bassless

Stick it on ebay, you'll probably get a better price for their quirkiness, they're not all that.

Thunder IA is a much better all round guitar with 'real' bass guitar pickups.

Did you ever repaint the covers?

Did you notice the twat had no feedback....he didn't pay and Ef'ingbay didn't help much as you know.

Sold it privately for 155.

There's a Spectrum DX, Bendmaster Deluxe equipped going on Ef'ingbay tonight if your at all interested.
Fitted with your clamp washers, Thanks again.

Ef'ingbay is only a showcase.

The majority of the stuff is sold privately. Phuck their fees.

Going through paypal is just the same as regards cover , gives the buyer some insurance and you still pay for the privilege..Laughing

True, who wants another Quantum,,,one's more than enough.

Unless to sell on.

Not all they're cracked up to be.

Not all Westone's are the bollox you know.

They made some crap as well. No excuses

hold on a mo......the quantum is by no means crap! the neck is wonderful to play...and those pickups might just find their way into a better guitar Wink
just a shame the body is so carelessly designed.

I wonder how the UBC's would sound in the quantum..... Twisted Evil
