Quality control has failed to sift me out.

While clearing the house, so I can get some building work done I have found a large speaker.

It's a Fane Accoustics 18" 150w 8ohm speaker with a Coil Dia of 3" and a flux density(?) of 20.000.  Its from around circa 1977 or before, and used to sit inside a huge bin unit.

It's going free to a good home as I dont want to just chuck it out.  If anyone has any ideas as to what can be done with it if no one wants it, please also PM me!

I have a paragon (what??) nylon strung cutaway guitar I need to get rid of.
It's had a bridge repair but it plays really nice.
It has a pick up which may need reseating.
anyway, this would be a good starter guitar for a youngster who may give up after a few months
thats why i want just 25 quid for it

                                         SOLD


Excellent first guitar (or second, or third......) - better build quality than a Squire (and better sound!) nice and warm on neck pickup, punchy using both (great on overdrive, but the bridge pickup! that signature telecaster sound - great for those country licks!). Only selling because I want a Danelectro U2

Tanglewood TW28 SN for sale. About 2 or 3 years old, and well used. Plays well and would make a good first guitar. A few dints in the top, but nothing to worry about, just surface scratches. Entry level Dreadnought. In satin natural. Quality arched solid spruce top.  Multiple celluloid bound, tapped body.  Mahogany neck, matt. Oval shaped, rosewood fingerboard.  Rosewood Bridge. Compensating saddle. Chrome stepped tuning button. Yours, with a large Gator hard (and it really is hard) case for £100. Please e-mail me if you are interested.

Flightcased Ashdown ABM 1 x 15 cabinet if anyone fancies it.

In my dining room currently and pissing of my wife severely.  It's listed on eBay for £395 on 'Buy It Now', but I need to get rid, so a sensible offer would be welcome, either via eBay 'Best Offer' basis, or by PM on TAW.

Thanks

OK, not strictly on topic, but it is, apparently, for sale...

As ebay listings go, I think this deserves some kind of award Roll Eyes

Due to an oversized guitar collection (is that possible?) am selling at Cropredy a budget end but stylish and easys playing Cheetah EA bass. Realised too late that I am happier with six strings rather than four!
Paid £95 for it and it is as new and hardly played. Will accept £60. Am taking it to Croppers, so anyone interested, please PM me or post.
Hope this is not against TA etiquete
Nic

Edit: Move along, nothing to see here.  It's gone.  It's sold.  You can't have it.


iMac G4 17" (can be run as a dual screen setup - which i use for running logic pro). 1Ghz, 512mb ram, 80GB HD, mac OSX 10.4.11 (in its original box!)
runs well - comes with logic express 7 (i am keeping pro because i need the dongle!) and various VST plugins - no original discs included.
Also with it is my much loved Tascam us-428 audio interface/control surface - more info http://www.tascam.com/products/us-428.html

This is a great little setup for some one, great way into home recording. its time for me to get some more equipment with my first band recording coming up in a couple of months.

£250 the lot - collection from oxfordshire/banbury area.

any questions just ask!
Thanks, Olly.



Edit: I said it's gone.  Not available.  Finished.  Sold.  It's not going to be yours, so stop looking at it.  Move along,please

Currently undergoing restoration ( whilst dodging dogs and restoring ukes and fiddles ) is this very pretty 3/4 german cello. All maple construction, new soundpost fitted and adjusted, rosewood fingerboard and nut. When i got it it was covered in boyzone stickers from some tasteless bastard, and chipped and abused. I have stripped it and sanded it by hand.

Anyone interested pm or mail me then you can choose your finish. I will be using spirit varnish that i have made myself from various colour shellacs, spike oil, dammar resin and alcohol. This process will ensure it has a rich earthy tone as most string instruments have solid rosin based sugary varnish which stops the wood breathing.  I have finishes in mahogany/garnet/ golden and oak type colours. There will be approx 15 layers added and sanded then added again until the colour and sound is right.

I have sanded out the chips and removed the nasty varnish and painted purfling. The wood is good quality with no splits or previous repairs or cleating.

It will come with new strings and properly fitted pegs. No bow or case but you can pick one up on ebay cheap enough.

It is a beauty and to be honest if it doesnt go i will not cry because i am already in love with it Grin

Price negotiable but don't take the piss Smiley
