Took this as a p/x against a Yamaha SLB200 a few years ago and never looked back. Strung with a set of Prestos, it plays nicer than most electric uprights I've tried and has a nice natural warm and punchy sound that cuts through in a mix. This is one of the earlier models that still features a traditional style scroll that bolts onto the head/pegbox. Hand built by Alan Hatswell (as I'm sure most of you reading this will already know!). Don't see many of these around now but those who know what they are know how good Alan's work is and how nicely his instruments play.
Fingerboard is in very good condition with minimal wear, there are a few little dings in various places, but they're all very small and are typical from years of use. One small split in the frame (pictured) that was there when I got it, but its never spread and has remained the same all the time I've had it. Not sure of the exact age but I took possession around 5/6 years ago. It's a really great bass but just doesn't get the use these days and major car repairs (again!!!) have prompted a sale! I'd prefer collection but can do my best to pack it up if buyer wants to arrange a courier at their expense/risk. Weight is 7.9kg approx. I travel between my home in Pembrokeshire & Kent fairly regularly so could meet up along the way or in Kent. Don't mind meeting elsewhere for petrol costs.
I'll consider part ex. with cash my way, or if you've got a fairly light-weight 5 or 6 string I might consider a straight swap! Neck problems mean my other bases are too heavy to gig with sometimes, so the only light bass I have is a Squier Precision, which doesn't always offer the tones I need! Something like an Ibanez SR or maybe an older Yamaha TRB (not all that light, but I miss the one I sold a few years ago), or just let me know what ya got!
Any questions please feel free to ask.
