    Beware of custom builds, it can become addictive. 😎

    EPIFANI UL3-310, priced to sell !!!

    Due to the new courier regulations, some destinations are no more possible. Check the list or ask to be sure as I have another courier option, but you know these regulations are changing all the time...

    And they are at very good prices by Bax Music and you can even try it in Goes (~100 kilometers away from you...) : https://www.bax-shop.nl/producten.html?keyword=ESP%2FLtd+Bunny+Brunel

    I never liked the cheap version of the Gary Willis, sounding dull to me. The natural one has the real Bartolini pickup and electronics and sounds very good, a bit too narrow on the bridge for me and still missing that extra string. That said, you can order it and send it back if you don't like it. 😉

    Rare Basses

    This was my very first 5 strings bass, in black, bought new at the local store without knowing it had a low B. So once home, I decided to tune it in E, you know what kind of idiot you can be sometimes (or most of the time) and the G broke when I tried to tune it to C. I went to the store the next morning as I was working 50 meters away, but double ball strings were very rare at the time and a 5 strings set even rarer. They had to order the set : in 1989 there was no internet store... so I had to wait for a month. I called the only luthier I knew who was Christophe LEDUC and he said he had some, went to him and had the bass completely set up in the meantime. It was a totally different instrument after that, with good strings and a very good setup. That's with this bass that I learnt to mute the unused strings. So, yes there were some Hohner The Jack V with neck-trough and active electronics. I kept it until I bought my fretless... I think you have trouble to find one because its name is The Jack Bass Custom ! Exactly the same as this one :

    The other ones are here. That said, you should have a 6 strings fretless bass, that's way better. 🤣

    Here is a selection in your price tag, Harry. I think the second one will attract you, don't know why 😁 : https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1410363 https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1581266 https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1617055 https://www.zikinf.com/annonces/dispannonce.php?annonce=1613816
