  1. Sorry wasn’t querying price - just enquiring if shipping included 😊
  2. Please don’t use Hermes. Pay the extra - sent one fully insured same price for £27 with UPS collected from my doorstep. Next day delivery. Hermes lose parcels as a matter of course in my experience. Had many sleepless nights due to their rubbish service.
  3. Thanks. Scratchplate has nice vintage “tinge” to it 😊
  4. **Now Withdrawn while considering keeping** .£425 - Until Monday 4th May when it will be withdrawn from sale. Fender Precision Candy Apple Red. Classic fender styling with gold logo. Striking bass in great condition. Looks and plays great. 2012 model looking at the serial. Fitted with Dean Markley nylon coated flats. Few marks but nothing that detracts from the looks of this bass. Comes with Rockbag gig bag. UK shipping via UPS £20
  5. Not sure - I just know when I heard it I was well impressed with the tone. As there are no poles its a possibility they were upgraded at some stage?
  6. It does - a real gem sad to see it go but need to thin the herd😕
  7. NOW SOLD Sale of my vintage 1977 Aria Pro II Precise, Precision Bass, a bold Matsumoku replica of a Fender Precision Bass, Too good - making this one of the true lawsuit models. This one has a contoured 4-piece P Body that looks like it is made of Alder - coming in at around 9.5 pounds. It is finished in a reliced 3-tone sunburst, with a classic black guard. The pickup appears to be original, and the knobs are quality replacement pieces. The bridge is standard Fender type. The maple neck is a corker, with a fat D profile and a 1 5/8” P width plastic nut. The 20 original frets are in good order with plenty of life left in them. The Precise Bass’ headstock shape is an exact copy of Fender’s. The lawsuit basses often have goofy small print on their headstock decals, and this one is no exception. These decals inform us that this bass was produced by “The World-Wide Brand” and that it has a “Distinguished Custom Body by Matsumoku”. Matsumoku is of course the famous Japanese factory that built many of the quality lawsuit instruments. This bass in in very good overall condition, particularly when you consider it is 43 years old. The body is reliced and really adds to the appeal - all edges smooth and finished . I restrung it with Picato black nylon strings (0.040 to 0.100) flats, and they are a good fit with the character of this bass. Fretwork is good, it is a good playing bass with no buzzing and a low action. It plays like a buttery peach, and I like it a lot. The sound of the bass is a typical P Bass sound - pickups are slightly hotter than the Fenders IMO with plenty of punch and tonal range. These older Aria Pro II Fender basses are rare and great value, but the values can only go up, so now is the time to buy if you want one at much less than the Fender equivalent - but no less of an instrument. Included is a rockbag gigbag. It will be well-packed for shipping. Offers and/or Trades welcome - Trade value £450
  8. Thanks Marc - It really is something :-)
