  9. Another WIndmill owner was kind enough to message me the following information - sharing it here for full disclosure: " I bought <another> Windmill Bass recently also on Basschat. Does look a lot like a Jabba. So I emailed Mayones and asked them whether they did actually build them and Artur did reply and said they did not. So I am guessing they were actually made by Mensinger, their Jazzline is similar though only 4 bolt but in the same pattern as the 6 on the Windmill." The previous seller had advertised it as built my Mayones but apparently he had not verified it. Hence, I have removed the reference to Mayones in my listing.
  10. Sold and on its way to the UK
  11. Next buyer's payment on the way - should be sold this time.
  12. First buyer fell through as he can't complete the payment. Will message the next on the list.
  13. (Located in The Hague, NL. My feedback history: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/280308-feedback-for-torvic/page/3/#comments) <snip> Bought this here: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/343049-sold-shuker-custom-6-string-bass-with-hiscock-hardcase-excellent-condition-free-uk-postage-or-£25-off-eu-postage-£695/ It's in the exact same condition as I received it. It's an almost perfect bass with a thin (flat) neck and a great modern tone - clear, articulate, and strong. There is however one issue I have noticed - there is an intermittent hiss (noise) that shows up when playing for a while. I paid to have the bass checked at my local guitar technician shop but he couldn't find any issue in the wiring or connections. I cannot figure if there is some problem in the bass or in my signal chain / rig. I have decided to sell it as 6-strings are not for me and I need to raise funds for another purchase (GAS strikes eternal). The bass will ship in the Shuker Hiscox case that I received it in. The price is what it cost me so far in euros (shipping, technician check, etc.) I have taken into account the price of the previous sale, the 25gbp shipping discount, the actual shipping costs (i arranged it with UPS standard), and other costs incurred. Borrowing the description from the previous sale (link above): "This things is an amazing bass, it has dual EMG soapbar pickups which provide a vast array of tones from hi-fi clarity to deep bassy lows. I believe the pre-amp is a Seymour Duncan 3 band, it has Volume, blend, bass, mid, treble controls and works beautifully with the EMG pickups. The tuners are Gotoh reso-lite tuners and the bridge pieces are individual hipshot mono-rail bridges. Scale length: 34" String spacing: 18mm Weight: 4.5kg Both the top wood and back wood are AAAA quilt maple, it has a beautiful 3D effect and is about as good as you can get from quilt maple! The body core is mahogany and with 5 laminate neck (maple, wenge, flame maple, wenge, maple). The fretboard is a beautiful piece of birdseye maple and plays as good as it looks. The overall construction is absolutely impeccable, the bass has very few marks on it anywhere, there is one light scratch on the upper bout, but besides that it's almost mint. To custom order a bass like this now would set you back over £3000, so I'm sure someone will get an incredible deal here." I think it is an incredible deal still.
  14. *on hold for local trade* This is a used Windmill Jazz with Rough Crystal jazz pickups. There are some dings on the bottom side but nothing major. The Rough Crystal pickups are from the makers of Lefay. The pickups are in the 70s' jazz bass position (4" between the two pickups). The bass is pretty light at around 3.8kg and the neck is thin and fast. Selling to fund a purchase - no trades please. Spec: Color: 3 TS Neck width at the first fret: 38.5 mm Neck at the 20th fret: 63 mm Scale: Longscale 34 " Neck: maple with 20 medium frets Fingerboard: flamed maple with binding Body: swamp ash Tuners: Schaller Vintage Tuner Brass nut (Warwick style) Truss Rod: with adjusting screw at the heel of the neck Pickguard: black Electronics: passive with volume, volume and tone Bridge: vintage style (4 corner screws) Pick ups: 2 x Le Fay single coil jazz bass Strap locks: Schaller Security Locks
