UK Bass Hunting!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by SeedyBloke, Nov 16, 2002.

  1. Hey all.

    I am trying my best to find a Fender P-Bass Special (Arctic White) in the Uk but not having much luck. Can anyone reccomend some good ports of call to email or check out.

    Also has anyone had experience ordering a Fender bass from US/Mexico to the UK as I have no idea how long it normally takes.

    Cheers :)

    You could do well also to try to find Yamaha BB5000 - note that usually the 5000's I see are 5-strings so the number might be bit off - they have that Precision Special vibe going on and blonde ones are quite widely around.

    Where are you in the Uk?
    Sound Control in birmingham used to be part of the Music Exchange, I'm pretty sure they could sort you out -
  5. I live close to Birmingham (Wolverhampton). I'll give Sound Control a try. I love that place - so much cool stuff in that basement!
