  2. Brian was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was super patient and a great communicator. Great guy!
  3. HAHA, what are you saying about my feet?
  4. Its definitely been played during its lifetime. Just for the record I purchased it like this, I've always treated it well whilst its been in my care!
  5. Modulus Flea Bass Black 2003 for sale. Black with multitude of battle scars but mainly on the back of the bass. 4kg/9lb comes with a Gator Hardcore/HardBag similar to Transit Lightweight cases. Bartolini pre amp (See pic), assuming Bartolini pickups too but no marking so not sure (If anyone can help verify would be helpful) Based in London & Theale. Would prefer pickup/meet up with a reasonable distance or can ship internationally if needed but will be at buyers cost. £1550 ono no trades straight sale please
  6. This is an ’81 model, in clear nitro finish natural maple which has aged to a nice pale honey tone all over. The woodwork, finish, Gibson-branded Schaller tuners, and 3-point bridge are original. As you can probably see the pick-ups are not; the original black series V humbuckers were replaced 2 owners ago with chrome EB-3 type units (Japanese made, Allparts supplied), and the original Moog preamp replaced by what I was informed is a Bartolini 2-band EQ one. The brass nut and generic Gibson truss-rod cover are also not original, and rear battery cover is missing (One available on reverb). RD Artists have the classiest headstock on any bass ever I reckon, the Gibson logo and “flying note” inlay are real mother-of-pearl. The controls are; vol / vol / treble boost-cut / bass boost-cut, p/u select (neck/both/bridge), with micro-switches for active/passive (wish every active bass had one!), and phase invert. Quite simply there is nothing that looks like these basses, or sounds like this one. They are heavy – a big solid chunk of maple, but really ergonomic – if you play fingerstyle (as I mostly do) you can rest your palm on the upper body cut-out whilst doodling away on the strings; so comfortable. Set neck, body-through stringing, extra-long scale (34.5”), and dense maple body means it sustains for ever. Versatile: you can get the muscular EB-3 sound (think Jack Bruce, Jim Lea, Andy Fraser….) but with more punch and top end available, rather more Fender P. The preamp is very effective and hum free but I almost invariably use it passive – just such a rich, growly, ringing tone. I reckon the chrome p/ups look so much more right on an old Gibson too. Unlike Thunderbirds these don't suffer from neck dive; nicely balanced. Due to the construction and xtra long scale makes them ideal for drop-tuning malarky such as BEAD. It's a bit of a beast coming in at 11lbs/5kg so not for the faint hearted. Comes with carry case made from a keyboard bag full customised to house the bass snuggly. Due to the size and length of the neck I cannot find a hard case, believe me I have looked. Based in London and work near reading. Pickup much preferred due to lack of hard case, I can meet within reasonable distance and exchange ( Buyer to cover fuel costs). Will consider postage as last resort. After £1000 no trades unless Sandberg VM4
