    Everson Custom 4

    Bump, and open to offers. I 've been using the bass since I posted the ad, and it is a very nice instrument indeed(my band-mates agree). I was thinking of keeping it, and if I do I will not be disappointed. The bass is in perfect condition, everything works as it should(electronics are perfect also no scratchy pots), and it has just returned from a small service, action now can get very low(it previously had a slight buzz in a couple of frets). The technician commented on how good he found the bass and how it surprised him tonally. I tried to record a couple of samples straight into a very cheap interface(yamaha ag03) and only tried to boost levels afterwards with some compression to mix with the backing tracks. Please excuse my playing, and any nastiness or distortion that might come through as it was a fast job and I have no particular experience with recording. I used the onboard eq on the bass, mainly bass boost and some mid cut with the parametric. The third sample is only with very mild bass boost and mid cut(flatter sound) for comparison.

    Everson Custom 4

    Just recently got this through a trade. I've been a 5 string player for years, and thought I'd try a 4 for practicing at home. This is a very nicely built handmade instrument, in almost mint condition (it does feel high quality in the hand), with a very unique sound (lots of growl) if needed, light (only 3,7 kg), which also balances really nicely on the lap(kind of rare in my experience). The reason for selling is simply because it is a very narrow fretboard for my liking. I realize now that what I want in a 4 string to feel comfortable would be something in the p bass territory(>41-42mm nut, and 19mm string spacing). 800 pounds/900 euros properly shipped to EU and UK(usually less than 5 working days). I would also consider trades, both up and down. It just need to have an appropriate nut width(see above), solid tone, and be 4 or 5 stings. Specs mahogany body with macassar ebony top maple neck with purpleheart and ebony stripes ebony fingerboard 40mm nut 19mm string spacing at the bridge(adjustable) Schaller hardware Emg mmtw pickup and Emg bqc preamp with parametric mids (dip switches in the cavity for treble response) Controls are volume(pull for splitting to single coil),, bass/treble, mid freq/mid weight 3.6 kg

    MPU Headless 5 - SOLD

    No, (though I often contemplated the thought just to tell him I have one of his basses and how much I like it), but Scooby did. I know you can find him in talkbass, under username MPU.

    MPU Headless 5 - SOLD

    Hi all, Pete got this bass from me.,been my main bass for over a year and I didn't believe it at first when he told me it's 35" scale. It plays effortlessly, tuning stability is marvelous, it has the best b string I've heard and played and it truly is a unique work of art, since Marco(mpu) as I've been told builds only instruments which he chooses. Whoever gets this is going to get a pretty special instrument. It also has a trussrod! (I'm against instruments without one). A bonus point for me is that fiddling with the eq you can easily get into stingray territory, and I don't mean trying to immitate it like many others, it can do it exceptionally well with its own flavor. GLWTS:)

    I don't think that's the case, a photographer often takes multiple shots from the same angle so as to have greater chances of having few good ones and eliminating errors(color balance, focus, exposure). You could say that he uploaded many similar photos. Anyway, very nice bass, I always wanted to try a s&s bass, I hope this is as good as it looks, and ends up with someone that enjoys it. GLWTS

    Last minute cash-is-king bump, before I take the plunge and trade it with something special from the states.

    I think it was a very good deal already at the price I had it. But I'll make it even more of a bargain, 1150 pounds from now on with shipping to eu/uk included. I can also record some soundclips if someone is really interested.

    Edit : I think I should note the reason I'm selling. In my DIY studio that we practise, I have major problems with bass modes. It's over 15 db at 250hz, and this bass works worst than my other one in the band settings. I try to compensate with extreme eq settings through a boss gt100. I think I need a 4 string instrument with a little more contained dynamic range. Like a p bass or a pj. My other bass right now at 18mm is not as comfortable as the bordwell turned out to be for me. I need something with 4 strings and 19-20mm string spacing.

    Well, after being hesitant since I posted the ad(the reason for no bumps), I can say now I love that bass even more, but I've also decided that I do need something different. Bump for a beautiful sounding instrument, with excellent playability(I now prefer it more than my main bass), really top notch construction, and almost in mint condition, apart from one knob being slightly bent(visible only when rotating it) and the plastic black rings removed from the knobs(I highly prefer the look and feel this way). I am open to trade offers, mainly 4 string basses of comparable quality and nice sound. I really dislike obvious dead spots. (by the way this bass has none as far as I can tell that would bother me).

    Thanks for your kind comments:) @silverfoxnik Edited reply because truth is words cannot express the tone/voice of an instrument. For anyone interested in buying or trading, I can record the bass.

    Selling my CB bass I acquired through a trade some 7 months ago through talkbass. Specs copied from original listing 35" scale, 19mm bridge. Alder body with Yellowheart top and headstock veneer. Flame maple & Wenge neck with set neck construction. Rosewood Board. Oil finish. Nordy DC pups with a Nordy 3b "kitchen sink" setup (vol, blend, treb, mids, bass, 2 pickup switches, 2 push pull pots). All Hipshot hardware, aluminum bridge. Rosewood and Mahogany pup covers. Refreted with 51108 fretwire and PLEK'd by Mike Lull. Comes with hardcase. About 4 kilos/9 pounds. Bass is in excellent condition. Cosmetically 9.5/10 , functionally 10/10. Tuning keys, bridge, truss rod all working perfectly Especially the truss-rod is perhaps the smoothest I have ever tried. Neck is very comfortable and smooth. Sale value 1250 pounds with shipping to eu/uk included (around 3-5 days) This is less than the bass cost me. Trade value 1600 pounds. I'm located at eu Athens Greece, and have previously completed a few transactions with people from all over Europe through basschat with absolutely no problems, both as a buyer and seller. If you search you can easily find the listing, and for those with talkbass accounts you can find my feedback here https://www.talkbass.com/members/muse.55500/. Unfortunately I never opened(or someone else had to?) a feedback thread in basschat, so for those who don't know me, I have no feedback in basschat:)
