I Steinberger£999i am in a strange situation at the moment , where I'm no longer playing and holding onto nostalgia .
After moving into a smaller flat , I guess I have to be ruthless and ask myself " do I really need all of these basses ?" How many hands have you got ?" The basses I am keeping are the jack Daniels , the Washburn status , the fretless vester which is a copy of a Warwick and an actual Warwick which I bought here from a great basschatter in August last year.
Anyway , I have here the Steinberger XM3 not so common as the XM2 which is a rarity in itself
A few bits of wear and tear obviously for a 30+ year vintage instrument . It comes with original gig bag which has seen bettter days tbh , plus a brand new gig bag purchased from amazon a couple of months ago. Also slighly tattered envelope and paraphernalia .
One thing to note : It eats batteries and should be looked at by a tech . Socket or wiring issue ??
comes with additional brand new tiger gig bag , purchased all the way from the amazon.
The other bass
Custom fretless 4 string made by Mybass of this parish.
2 piece mahogany main body wood that was off a very old piece of furniture. American black walnut top . A five piece maple / Wenge neck. Macassar ebony fretboard
The control guard may be Macassar , but peter is not 100% sure on this. Controls are vol/vol/ tone. Although headless , the tuning system uses standard string single ball ends . A bit like the Steinberger tuning system but it fits normal strings and not headless . There are Seymour Duncan humbuckers. There are 2 strap holders allowing 2 strap place options . Scale length is 34" with a double octave neck .
nut width is a tad over 1.5"/39.3mm.It has 3mm side dit's starting at low F . There are 6 wood chipped screws holding the neck solidly in place. The neck leans more towards a p bass size than a jazz bass. The body and neck have an oil finish (try oil on body).
This bass is very light in weight and has a great sound . The action is light to the touch .
although pictured with 3 strings , I have a new set available . Just haven't had time . They're dadarrio.
comes with excellent paddded Rockbag gig bag.
Trade wise? Maybe a green Yamaha attitude , which means that I've trimmed one bass.
or anything Moog , as I have just got a grandmother .
Now for the pictures.
