  1. Lockdown amusement... Not show-off, only to hear the beast, I have not another sound clip. The bass was recorded through a Rupert Neve Designs RNDI and was "altered" by a little bit of Darkglass overdrive (PC software). Pan pot at the middle, pseudo-passive mode (active pickups, no onboard preamp). Stainless steel Elixir strings, not very new. Brown hair, green eyes. So, this is its sound when it's played aggressively. When caressed tenderly, purrs beautifully. EU Metal League - This was my life ( Megadeth cover) - YouTube
  2. Due the lack of musical activity, I also have to put this bass up for sale. I'm sure I will regret, this is the best bass I ever touched (and I had a lot of them). I was very happy to buy it back this year, but I have no choice in these strange times. Specs: - Body: ash - Top: cocobolo - Neck: maple - Fretboard: grenadilla, 24 frets, mother of pearls block inlays - Scale length: 35" - String spacing at bridge: adjustable, 19 mm now - Pickups: Basslines (Seymour Duncan) soapbars - Preamp: Seymour Duncan 3 band 9V - Weight: 4.2 Kg on my bathroom scale - Price: €3500 + shipping, fully insured (only €, please), used Mono Vertigo gig bag included (https://www.thomann.de/ro/mono_cases_vertigo_electric_bass.htm), not the soft case from the pictures, that is the case of my ex-KL6. - Trading options - Spector or Warwick Streamer (only if I'll receive minimum €2000 difference), but try me, who knows... Please PM. The bass is made in 12.01.2001 (serial no. 226) and is in excellent condition, let's say minimum 9/10 (some traces on the back of the body, almost invisible due to the ash grain). More pictures and sound/video clip by request.

  4. A chapter in my musical life is over, if I may say so, so I will sell most of my basses. I don't think this bass needs a description. Anyway, you can find the specs in a picture. Condition 9.5/10, papers, original Status/Hiscox hard case, strung with almost new Elixirs nickel 45-105 + 130TW. 34.75" scale Adjustable string spacing at the bridge (now 18 mm) 47 mm nut 4.5 Kg on my bathroom scale The buyer will pay the shipping, I'll send fully insured through DPD (up to 50 Euros to EU and UK, I think) The last price is €1500. Only Euro, please! Thank you!
  5. Bass Lines, Just a Nut 1, the joint between neck and headstock... one of the rarest and beautiful SS1 I've ever seen. It was mine before and I can confirm it has an amazing sound and the playability is like a dream, even the string spacing is 20 mm (for me was better, I have BIG hands). I don't play 6 string anymore, but this is a sweet temptation A little help from me, Russ. GLWTS!
  6. My dream bass is back home. Everything was perfect as usual, Mikko is a very trusty guy. Thank you again, my friend!
  7. I just received another bass from Tony. Yes, THAT Music Man . It was packed in a bombproof parcel, as usual. If I jump off the plane in a parcel like that, I'm sure I'll survive. The communication was perfect, my money is not fake so everyone is happy. Again, many thanks, Tony! ...for the gift too! Great "Lemmy style strap, I think it will add some drive to the sound
  8. This bass was at me for a setup. I was amazed by the sound (sooo deep and the B string... I have no words), ergonomics and build quality. Then I had no money to buying it, now I have too many basses... Yeah, I know, I know... we never have too many , but sometimes we must take a little break, the main reason being our wives 😇. You can buy with confidence, Ovi is one of a trusty man I did "business" here (not only here), this is the reason we became friends. GLWTS!
  9. After a short discussion, another trade followed, proving once again (not really necessary ) our craziness and GAS. It can only happen when confidence is 100% or more. Of course, the parcel was bombproof as always and my first Status arrived in his new home, clean as described. Santé, mon ami!
  10. Hello you, it’s me again! This time with a little repair/upgrade on a Ricky 4003s/5. This is a great bass, but I wanted to make it an amazing bass for me. I play with a low/very low action. Because of that, to setup the intonation the bridge saddles must be closer to the neck. But the “calculation” of the Rickenbacker factory was not very good this time, the screws for the intonation becoming too short. For a medium and high intonation I’m sure the screws are long enough. So, I moved the bridge 10 mm to the neck because I didn’t found longer screws on stores, even Schaller factory has only 24 and 28 mm M 3,5 screws. Yep, unfortunately I made 3 new holes, but the bass will remain forever mine, so it must be not very “marketable”. The second modification that I made was to put a new pickguard with a new shape, to have a pseudo-thumbrest. Even the design was made in such a way to have a parallelism with that oblique pickup edge 🤓. I need to play there (and to rest my thumb for the B string) to have the tone that I want. So, this problem was solved too. In the case the bass looks better with a white pickguard, but on stage it’s too much contrast for me. Yeah, I know, I’m too fastidious (it’s the proper word? ). Now pictures...
  11. I just bought a(nother) bass from Ovi. Perfect transaction as usual. He's bass is killer, my money was mine, so everything's fine now Many thanks, Ovi!
