  1. Thanks - it's an immaculately-constructed instrument and the colour really stands out. It's also very comfortable to play for longer gigs. Here's the bass in action.
  2. I had this up for sale recently then took it down and now it's back up again! I have eyes on something else and that's what's driving me otherwise this would be a keeper. Never seem to have quite enough money for my habit. Anyway - here's my beautiful Duesenberg Starplayer bass complete with its original hard case in excellent condition. Meticulously-constructed and full of little details like the Art Deco tuners. I bought it because I was after an orange bass, a short scale (it uses medium scale strings because of the tailpiece) and a semi-hollow bass. This covers all of those! Not prepared to ship (unless you want to arrange a courier and insurance) but collection from near Belper which is centrally located and only 15 minutes from Junction 28 of the M1. Also prepared to negotiate a meet up if necessary.
  3. Since placing the ad I've been playing this and am struggling to imagine anything better! It's a keeper.
  4. Lovely bass. What does 'light distressing' mean?
  5. That's a beautiful instrument - and a work of art!
  6. Took it out on gigs Friday and Saturday and realised I was making a mistake here - withdrawn.
  7. Having a bit of a clearout to raise cash for something I've seen and this isn't getting the use at the moment so up it goes. The Backbeat is a wearable subwoofer that allows you to feel your bass playing and is a tremendous accompaniment to IEMs although it's also effective with your own amp - especially when you have to keep the volume down - delivering a stadium feel to proceedings. It's comprehensively described on https://getbackbeat.com and there are videos but TBH you need to experience it. I bought mine direct from the USA and it didn't come with the nice little bag but it works just the same. Price includes P&P.
  8. With you all the way there Tim! Lurking behind the Super P is the one that gets all the players these days...
  9. Aside from some very faint marks on the back of the body which can only be seen in a certain light whilst holding at an angle, and a slight bit of cloudiness on the chrome of the trapeze tail-piece it's in very good condition - no dings, scrapes, scratches or evidence of misadventures. Not sure of the age and as I bought via eBay in 2019 I'm at least the second owner. Weight clocks in at around 7.5 lbs using the traditional bathroom scales - not a heavy instrument but undoubtedly a very pretty one. It's a short scale but uses medium-scale strings due to the tailpiece. Here's a link to me playing it on New Years Eve 2019 - using a Helix straight into the PA with a patch based on a GK model. Apologies for the sound quality - straight off the camera.
  10. Beautiful German-built Duesenberg Starplayer bass in Trans Orange c/w with Duesenberg hard case. I bought this because I wanted an orange bass, a semi-hollow bass and a short-scale bass and this does all three and does it well! These days however I'm strictly playing my J basses and the money could be better used elsewhere hence the sale. Cash sale and collection preferred but being centrally located I'm negotiable about meet-ups at a reasonable distance.
  11. Up for sale after considerable pondering goes my lovely 2020 Dingwall Super P4 in Fiesta Red, Wenge neck, owned from new and in as-new condition along with probably the best gig bag I've ever seen. I waited a long time for this to come in and snatched it up as soon as it landed and it plays as good as you'd expect. Truth be told, it's just not getting the play because I already have a Super J5 that I love and which it hasn't displaced. Funny how things work out sometimes. I'd prefer collection but travelling for a meet up is negotiable as I'm centrally located. A sale is greatly preferred but I might consider a trade involving a lined fretless.
  12. Use a Helix LT but wonder if this might be more suitable for gigging? Like the A/B function - v. useful.
