Shuker 5 String Single Cut..
Back to £1000
Turns out the active is fine it’s just a noisy socket (that I already knew about). On this style of active the tone controls don’t function in passive mode; they come in to play when the push/pull volume control goes active; according to Barry at KGB. The actives are not Bartolini (unlike the pick-ups) - it appears they are Shukers own & incidentally I think it sounds great. KGB is replacing a pot and a noisy socket so I’m down about £45.00. As I’ve had the work completed and pick up the guitar tomorrow it’s back to the original ALREADY LOW asking price of £1000. I’m keeping the information below for clarity, but it’s no longer £850; and it is functioning fine..
*** £850 - If you get it fixed..! ***
There is a fault with the active side of the electronics; the passive works okay 👌. I’m only selling this bass to fund a Jazz Deluxe / Elite or Ultra, and I’ve seen one I like for £850. If your prepared to except the fault, then you are getting an absolute bargain & a luthier could make the active sing again. This offer can only last while the other bass is still available or until the guys at KGB musical instruments fix the fault, but they haven’t contacted me yet so I could pick it up in a heartbeat. £850 doesn’t cover postage or hard case. I’d like someone to pick it up or buy my hard case and arrange their own courier from my address. If you buy the hard case £50 (Hiscox) and arrange your own courier I’ll wrap this bass in all kinds of bubble wrap packing and place the lot in a bass size cardboard box.. If in the meantime KGB fix my guitar this bass goes back to £1000..!
Still Getting the electronics fixed.
Due to illness the guitar is still (1 week thus far) at the workshop (KGB Musical Instruments).
Up for sale / or trade is my Shuker Single Cut - 5 string. I’ve owned it for about 8yrs and never really gigged it. Mainly used for practice sessions and home playing. It could probably do with a small service (crackly jack skt) but it’s still very playable; in good overall condition with low action and a stable, fast shallow neck. 34’ Scale and Bartolinis. Payed a lot more than I’m selling for. The only mark I can see on it is a small nick in the lacquer on the top edge of the body.
Not sure of the woods but I think the facing is spalted ash with a tiger stripe finish that looks amazing. 24 frets in good condition. Currently fitted with 30-115 (super light) Status steel round wound strings, and there’s precious little rattle. It’s a lot of bass for the price!
Selling as I’ve recently played a friends USA 77 jazz at a gig; and I want one. So this has to make way. If anyone has a newish re-addition 70’s jazz I’ll consider a trade / swap..! Ideally a USA Jazz Deluxe with the block (70’s style) neck inlays and edge binding or an Elite or Ultra..
ideally looking for a buyer to arrange local pick-up.
