  1. This is the lovely US built launch edition of the short scale G&L Fullerton Fallout bass in a rather fetching ‘racing yellow’. These racing stripe versions with the matching headstock were apparently a limited run. 

    This is a really east bass to play - the neck is very fast and I’d say much better than the Tribute version of which I sold to get this. 

    It is in excellent condition and is strung with heavy gauge round wounds from Daddario. There are some minor marks and a dent on the upper bout which has bruised the lacquer. This is only cosmetic of course. The bass doesn’t come with a case or bag but will be well packed if posted. 

    I’ve included a pic comparing the size of it with a full scale Musicman bass. Although it’s a 30’’ scale with 19 frets it has a large body. The balance is perfect, tones are powerful and flexible and the weight is 4kgs which is easy on the shoulder.

    I’m selling because my short scale experiment started with and ended with my Ric 3000 - which I’m keeping.

    This is a well put together US made short scale bass that doesn’t look like a toy on a bigger player but is manageable for players of all sizes. The E has plenty of punch and the intonation is perfect. 

    I’d recommend watching Ed Friedland  AKA The Bass Whisperer’s YouTube demo which definitely sold this bass to me.

    No trades sorry, UK only. Pickup preferred although I can post at buyers cost.

  2. Peter bought a Musicman Sterling from me, quick payment, very easy and pleasant to deal with. Many thanks enjoy that super slim neck!

  3. Orange Little Bass Thing bass amp.

    It’s near new and was bought as a backup. Lovely amp purchased recently and used in rehearsal once. It’s seriously loud and really huge sounding but a bit too powerful for my needs so I’ll stick with my Markbass combo. The compressor is really useful and it’s got a comprehensive eq section too. Comes boxed. I can post in the UK for £15. No trades.

  4. I bought this beautiful sunburst and rosewood US EB MusicMan Sterling from here recently. This is the American made Sterling not to be confused with the cheaper - albeit very well made - product line. 

    I love the sound and playability but I prefer the maple board on the MM Sterling that I recently withdrew from sale. 

    This instrument is very light for a MusicMan at around 3.8 kgs. This one was built in 1996. There are a couple of minor dings and the strap buttons are replacements. 

    There is a basic non Musicman case with it. 

    I found it more comfortable than the StingRay models owing to the narrow neck, smaller body and contouring. It’s currently wearing Daddarios. The neck is very similar to a Jazz in feel and is very comfortable, the preamp is excellent giving a wide range of useable tones. 

    Postage will be around £30 UK only. More pics to follow. No trades unless you have a maple board US Sterling.

  5. A few bits of eurorack for all you modular dabblers. 
     

     

    Doepfer Wasp Filter A-124SE as new and boxed bought around a month ago but doesn’t really fit in with my modular system. £58 posted.

     

    Blurb -

     

    Module A-124 (WASP FILTER) is a special voltage- controlled multimode filter with a cut-off slope of -12dB / octave.

    The special feature of the A-124 is the peculiar elec- tronic circuitry of the Wasp synthesizer manufactured at the end of the seventies by the UK company EDP (Electronic Dream Plant). This synthesizer is well known for its eye-catching black/yellow wasp design and its distinctive filter. Its circuitry "abuses" digital inverters as analog operational amplifiers leading to distortions and other "dirty" effects that generate the specific sound of this filter.

    Our version is equipped with a band pass output and a combined low/notch/high pass output. For this latter output a control knob defines the relative amounts of low and high pass signals. If both si- gnals appear at the same level (i.e. middle position of the Mix knob) one obtains a notch filter. Otherwise the low or high pass signal predominates.

    Resonance can be adjusted manually. The filter can't go into self oscillation, in contrast to most of the other VCFs in the A-100 system.

    The cut-off frequency can be adjusted manually, or by voltage control. Two CV inputs are available.

     

    Frequency Central Raging Bull Module. 

     

    This has a lovely rich filter and sounds wonderful. Excellent condition, quality U.K. produced unit in standard eurorack format. Only selling as I have the Frequency Central Device X system which has one of these included. 

    Price includes U.K. postage. £70.

     

    Blurb - 

     

    The Frequency Central Raging Bull is based on the legendary Moog Taurus Mk I VCF and VCA. It has a lovely, thick Moog-like quality, which is further enhanced by the drive you can get out of its VCA at higher settings.

    A big part of the sound of the Taurus was the way in which the VCF interfaced with the VCA, so on Raging Bull the VCA is always in the audio path. A toggle switch allows you to select ‘always open’ or CV control of the VCA from CV input 1.

     

     

    Behringer rack, this is a basic rack unit, the power supply is not included but you can buy them separately. £35 posted.

     

    I can sell the whole lot together if interested. No trades sorry.

  6. Fender Precision Plus 1992 US Made Bass

     

    This Precision Plus is in excellent condition and comes with original case, manual and tools. It differed from the standard P bass of the era by having Lace Sensor PJ pickups, fine tune heavy duty bridge, extended top horn to help with balance and 22 frets. This was considered the top of the range P bass of the early 90’s, quality is superb. It’s all original with the exception of the tortoiseshell scratchplate which was custom made for the previous owner. It’s a fantastic instrument in excellent condition with only minor blemishes. The neck is straight and the frets in very good condition. Truss rod acts as it ought to, hardware and pickups work perfectly. Only selling as it’s a little heavier than my other basses at 4.5kgs.

    I’d prefer pickup in person but I will post but only in the UK. The wood grain on the (presumably ash) body is lovely. A very high quality 30 year old bass for not much more than a used roadworn. No trades unless you have a lightweight maple board US Precision.

  7. This short scale Wilcock bass is a lovely thing. It’s sleek and easy to play, very red and has an incredibly beautiful flamed neck and lots of tones. It also weighs in at 3.4kgs! It comes with a gear4music tweed case and strap locks. It’s a very recent purchase but alas the 30” short scale and ergonomics don’t work for my playing position so I’m offering it up for sale. I’d also be willing to trade for a lightweight US Precision Bass preferably with a maple fingerboard.

    I’m glad I have tried one of these as the quality and workmanship is fabulous. The Armstrong MM pickup has clarity and punch and the push pull pot gives a surprising array of tones. It’s a classy bass. Pickup preferred but I can post at buyer’s cost U.K. only. The condition is excellent, no dings, faults or marks of any significance and it’s set up with a nice low action.

  8. Yes it looks like a copy to me the headstock proportions are wrong and the body looks ‘squared off’ compared to the Musicman curves. Maybe a custom copy or a modded copy. Approach with caution ⚠️ 

  9. Fender American Performer Bass in Lake Placid blue.

    The bass has been modified with black knobs and bridge and EMG GZR (Geezer Butler) passive pickups. Original knobs and pickup set are not included as I don’t have them. It weighs 4.1kgs and comes with all the original accessories, certificate and gigbag.

    The bass is in excellent condition. There are some small indents where a larger bridge has been installed but this is merely cosmetic. 

    It has a lovely maple neck and frets and neck are like new. I’m only selling as I have the opportunity to buy one of my first basses back. Last in first out! 

    Please note that this is a U.K. only sale, local pickup preferred but I can post at buyer’s cost if necessary. No trades. 

    Some information from Fender.

     

    The American Performer is built using a lightweight Alder body and sturdy Maple neck, cut in a streamlined ‘C’ shape. Players after modern playability combined with classic looks will feel at home on the Performer Precision.       

    Its 9.5” radius Maple fretboard is a standard Fender appointment. Anyone with experience of playing a similar American-made bass or guitar will recognise its gentle curvature in contrast to the retro aesthetic. 
    The 20 jumbo frets make for an effortless playing experience.
