  1. Fender USA Precision 1982 Up for sale or trade is my beautiful "transitional era" precision. It still has the 70s type neck/logo/tuners, but the body has the deeper/rounder contours that returned in the Dan Smith era. Also the with pickup covers are typical for that Era. It still has the 70s style chrome bridge- and pickup covers though. Overall it looks like a 70s Fender bass, but with a nicer build quality. The bass is in pretty good condition for being nearly 40 years old. It has a few damages and usermarks, but nothing serieous. Overall it has a fresh appearance. Its not only a great looking bass, it plays lovely too with a low action if wished so. Technically the bass is all fine. The neck is straight and adjustable, and all the electronics and hardware function like they should. The bass appears to be all original except for the bridge plate. Nut width is 42mm and weight 4.7kg on my kitchen scales. A non-original generic hardcase is included. €1.650 (£1.470) Trades or partial trades are welcome. I am mainly interested in a bass that fits my RHCP playalong needs, like a good stingray (preferably 2eq, maple fretboard, lacquered neck) or a Modulus Flea... The bass is located in the Netherlands, but I am happy to ship with europe/UK at buyers risk.
  2. Beautiful headless bass, made by Patrick Koopman. Apparently this bass was made in 1987. This instrument was made using fine woods, and high quality electronics/Pickups (Alembic). It can be used in passive and active mode. In passive, controls are vvt. When active, the tone knob functions as a frequency filter knob. It looks great for it's age, and only has minor damages and usermarks. All electronics work fine, and the neck is straight and adjustable. The only remark is that the 21th fret has come up a little at the position on the G-string. So it needs to get fixated again. More pictures: A hardcase is included. It has foam placed inside that keeps the bass fixated. Asking €875 (approx £795) The bass is located in the Netherlands, though I am happy to ship within europe/UK at buyers risk and expense. Trades are defenitely welcome. I am still looking for a stingray (preferably 2eq, lacquered neck, maple fretboard). Also a good fretless might be welcome. I've got more stuff to add in a trade if needed.
  3. Final price drop to €1.650 (app £1.485)
  4. (partial) trades considered!
  5. Gibson SB-450 Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around. Pictures: As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way. Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should. This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos! The original hardcase is included. Asking €1.100 (approx £975) Trades are welcome; I am especially interested in a stingray. Ideally a 2eq with lacquered neck, maple fretboard, honeyburst..
  6. The Olympic white on these basses look great especially imo. It looks a little softer, or less white than a Mexican classic 60s. At least how I remember them. Might be due to the use of different paint.
  7. Looks lovely... Beautiful ray. Is the pickguard a replacement?
