  1. Up for sale is my wonderful Atelier Z Beta 4 taken in a trade on here but as I’m not gigging I don’t consider myself worthy of keeping it. I’ll stick with something cheaper for now. It is in fantastic condition with one nick on the headstock. It comes with a heavily padded Atelier gig bag which unfortunately has a bust zip. Atelier basses are boutique basses, made in small numbers in Japan and they reputedly challenge Sadowsky basses. It’s a wonderful bass and it urges you to keep playing it - it’s just one of those basses. The 24 fret maple neck is satin finished and is so smooth. It features block inlays with Luminlay side dots, stainless steel frets and Gotoh tuners. The Ash body is scaled down with an extended cutaway allowing access to no man’s land. It’s really light at around 3.6kg. The controls are Volume, Volume, Tone with a series/parallel switch to fatten up the sound when required. It has the latest Atelier Z pickups with staggered pole pieces and has a custom Atelier buffer preamp on board to prevent unwanted noise. It’s also been upgraded with a 3 way adjustable Hipshot kickass bridge - a brilliant bridge which I prefer over badass bridges these days. No trades on this unless there’s a cheap P bass out there somewhere. Based in Chester but can meet up or deliver within 50 miles. I’ll also ship it anywhere insured with UPS. Thanks for looking.
  2. Any 3 band preamps out there? Ideally an Aguilar, Bartolini or East but beggars can’t be choosers.
  3. Oh yeah. Sorry. I removed them when i agreed a trade and relisted it but forgot I took the pics off. Pics will be back on shortly.
  4. Final drop to £595 for this bass by revered Italian luthier Giuseppe Pezzotta. Having sold my Chowny and my Atelier I’d quite like a P bass so if anyone has a nice P out there then I can add money for the right trade. It has a lightweight natural alder body with a cedar cap, 24 fret maple neck with cedar inlays, twin custom wound soap bar pickups, a 2 band Bartolini preamp configured push / pull volume with active bypass, blend, bass and treble. It has black hardware and features recessed control knobs. It weighs a very lightweight 3.2kg, the neck is 38mm width at the nut, 54mm width at fret 12 and 63mm at 24. It’s quite shallow at 22mm at the 1st and 25mm at the 12th fret. It has a silky smooth, very playable maple neck and looks really unusual with its cedar inlays. It also benefits from a recent full set up including fret level, crown and polish, relief, action and intonation set up and new rotosound strings on. It play and sounds superb and also looks the part as it’s a pretty unique bass. I’ll ship it anywhere insured with UPS. Uk should be around £28. Europe should be around £40. Can also deliver or meet up within 50 miles of Chester. Now comes with a high quality semi rigid foam case - pics to be added. Trades possible......
  5. Back up for sale as trade fell through is my immaculate Chowny fretless. Dropped to £595 including delivery. Will trade or part trade up or down for anything with frets - preferably P or J. Also would consider trading for an all valve head. Up for sale or trade is this immaculate unmarked custom ordered Chowny SWB Pro short scale unlined fretless. Finished in a spectacular purple burst over a quilt maple top, it has EMG pickups with 2 band EMG preamp, a rather nice ebony fretboard, Wilkinson tuners and a fitted gator foam case. It’s unmarked and immaculate, obviously plays great (and it has no fret buzz coz it’s got none)! I took it in a trade on here but it’s just not up my street really. I always like the thought of a fretless but then realise they’re just not my thing. It’s a doddle to play though as it’s short scale and the position markers on the neck edge are on the fret rather than in between so again that makes it easy to hit accurate notes. This model retails at £850 but in this colour is currently on a 8-10 week backlog. Vital stats are; 38.5mm at the nut and 4.2kg on the scales. Will ship insured with UPS anywhere. Can deliver or meet up within 60 miles of Chester. Thanks for looking. Heres some blurb. Developed by Scott Whitley a professional gigging bassist (Big Country and formerly The Animals) the SWB Bass Range is designed to be a professional gigging bassists short scale bass. Traditionally ‘short scale bass’ has largely been associated with student basses and limited, muddy tones – not any more! The SWB Pro professional, modern-sounding short scale bass affordable to everyone. The SWB range are incredibly flexible basses to suit any style of playing – from growly traditional through to scooped, hi-fi slap tones and everything in between. Now the SWB Pro takes this to the next level with boutique finishes and a number of significant upgrades. With a matched EMG Jazz Pickup pair and EMG Pre-Amp as standard, this bass features a 5 piece satin walnut and maple neck, wilkinson tuners and ebony fretboard.
