  6. Hipshot 5 String A Style Piezo Bass Bridge. SKU:A_Style_5_Piezo. A Style bridge equipped with Graphtech Ghost Piezo Pickups. Removed from my KE5s, I can't find this model in the UK but it is available from BBG (USA) - details below. It's the brass/19mm version so assume towards the higher end of the $209.76 - $313.50 (withIn the USA) price range. It's 310g (11oz)so definitely a HEAVY duty bridge!...... :- https://www.bestbassgear.com/hipshot-5-string-a-style-piezo-bass-bridge.htm "These Hipshot A Style Bridges feature Graphtech® Ghost® saddles. These can be used in combination with magnetic pickups or without. The piezo version of the A style bridge is generally the same, with the exception of a slot in the bass plate for the piezo wire to pass through as well as a differently styled saddle. Graphech Ghost loaded piezo pickups let you get acoustic tone from your bass when installed independently or used in conjunction with a Piezo Buffer circuit to bring the output to the correct level and incorporate magnetic pickups. Custom-engineered piezo crystals are encapsulated in a set of Graph Tech's patented String Saver saddles. The ghost Saddle Pickups have a natural compression effect, so you can play as hard as you want without overloading the input channel or experiencing the dreaded piezo "quack". Pickups are individually calibrated, and sets are precision-balanced, so you get even string-to-string output. A buffer is used to get the piezo signal to the correct level. We have these available here - - >Bartolini Bartolini MPB2-918 Piezo-Magnetic Pickup Buffer A Style bridges are available in two different material constuctions: Brass and Aluminum. Aluminum is available Satin, Chrome, and Black Finishes. Brass is available in Chrome, Black, and Gold. These bridges are available in the following spacings: .656" (16.5mm) .669"(17mm) .687"(17.5mm) .708"(18mm) .718"(18.2mm) 728"(18.5mm) .750"(19mm) .787"(20mm)
  7. Karl Eckert Custom 5:- I originally owned this unique bass about 5 years ago and listed previously on BC in 2016 [ https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/280919-soldwithdrawn/?tab=comments#comment-3001746 ] Sold elsewhere, I bought it back years later and decided to finally sort the EQ issue as it’s a really nice instrument. As ‘discussed’ before it IS a Karl Eckert (UK luthier) instrument: http://www.karleckertguitars.co.uk/ and nothing to do with Kai Eckhardt (German bass player) https://kaieckhardt.com/ - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kai_Eckhardt ! The construction has been unchanged throughout: body wings are European Ash with circular routed voids within each half under the Walnut top (weight reducing). The through neck is made from European Maple and Khaya Mahogany with an Indian Rosewood finger board (21-fret) and face plate (headstock). Originally, there was a Hipshot piezo bridge, but this was not connected (no pre/buffer), which I’ll be selling separately as it’s been replaced with a standard high-mass bridge. The old pre-amp was poor and offered only vol, bass and treble. I’ve installed (*with the help/advice of excellent local Tech’ Aidan – twincam here on BC: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/226645-twincams-feedback/ ) an excellent Andy Schack pre-amp (currently 9v – can be changed to 18v; but no need, really) which combines really well with the Delano humbuckers. Vol (notched) pan + 3EQ (bass, mids, treble) plus the option via dip-switches on the circuit board of altering the B-M-T Hz/FreQ (B: 100-300Hz with 13 variations; M: 500-1500Hz with 12 variations; T: 2k-8k with 8 variations) Weight is 9.5 lbs, 34” scale, 2.75” nut, string spacing 9/18mm (nut/bridge). it’s currently strung E-C but has been B-G previously. I’ll add some photos of the bass ‘as-was’ if there’s room and can provide plenty more (detailed) to anybody potentially interested via PM. There’s no case/bag with it currently, but I should be able to find something if required. Photos show bass with black/gold (Marshall) knobs & Black (2L + 3S) knobs; either can be fitted if/when sold.
  8. £265 (?!!) for now & this coming w/end only !!!

All gold, original hardware. 24-frets; 34" scale. Samick P + J pickups.
