  1. That is a wonderful bass in excellent condition for this age ! The top seems to me more like Ebony which should contribute to an overall quicker response.. What are the two switches for ? The original TCT Preamp had no switches. Anyway a piece of history ! And one of the nicest bass designs ever imho...
  2. Selling my just traded-in MTD 6 string. It is a great player and one of the earlier basses Michael Tobias has built. It has spent most of its life with an active preamp and a huge power supply jack built into the body. According to the previous owner (a fellow BCer) Michael himself restored the bass to its original state, re-installed the original Bartolini pre and closed the hole with a matching wood part. The quality of the work is excellent as expected. The bass has a wonderful low action and with its 3,9 kg it is a featherweight, considering it is a 35" 6er ! Amboyna Burl Top (that is a VERY expensive wood today) Leightweight Ash body Maple neck and board Wenge cap on headstock and Wenge plates Bartolini pickups and preamp (V/Bal/B/M/T and Mid frequency switch) 21 frets 18 mm spacing at bridge 35" scale 3,9 kg (true !) Original HSC (has seen better days) Everything works fine. Frets have long life left. I am asking 3.000 Euro for it plus shipping from Duesseldorf / Germany. Trades considered: Fender Jazz Bass 70-74 maple board Alleva Coppolo F Bass BN or VF nothing else please !
  3. Oh it was yours ? Have you been the first owner ??
  4. Important note: Buyer‘s from within UK should be aware that for imports from EU to UK since Jan 1st the UK VAT will be applicable. This VAT has to be paid by the UK buyer once the goods are crossing the borders. Selling my 90s Fodera Imperial 6 - which has the nicest body and neck shape - and the deepest and most crisp sound of any Fodera I owned (and I had some ...). Mahogany body (up to 2000 or so Vinnie used frequently Honduran Mahogany, a wood that is used in Acoustic Guitars and is well known for its extraordinarily tonal capabilities. Bubinga Top 36" Neck with a Rosewood Board (looks like Kingwood or Amazon, close to Brazilian) and 28 frets Locking Bridge Hazlab Preamp Bartolini Pickups 19mm at Bridge 5 kg Fodera Teardrop Case The neck is asymmetrically shaped (like the older Tobias basses) which feels great ! The body is nicely shaped (like all of the 90s Imperials) and thinner than usual. The action is VERY low and allows neckbreaking fast licks (if they are in the fingers). Frets are top, everything works fine. Asking 5500 GBP or 6000 EUR plus shipping from Germany.
  5. Yes, this unique and fantastic Fodera is now living in France.
  6. As always with Foderas you can trim the spacing to some degree. So I would say about +/- 0,5mm per String. 18mm for all strings may work, but that's definitely the limit. That would be -2mm on the outer 2 spacings and currently there is not so much space. Some players think that a variable string spacing of +/- 1 mm per string means, that you can get a 18mm spacing out of 19mm standard. That's not true because the outer strings have to move 2mm then.
  7. Selling my beloved F Bass Alain Caron AC5 Fretless with Redwood Burl Top and nearly all upgrades you can imagine Specs: Redwood Burl top (Upgrade !), 5A Flame maple body with acoustic chambers, 34 scale (upgrade !) 18 mm string spacing at bridge (upgrade !) 5-pc-neck (upgrade !) Neck-Through design (upgrade !) Natural gloss finish, Ebony fingerboard without lines, 2x magnetic pickups (additional neck pickup is an upgrade !), Ebony bridge with Piezo-PUs, Preamp with 3-band EQ, Pearl serial number Black hardware, Incl. Hardcase, Weight: 4,30 kg Currently strung E-C This is a fully loaded version of the "King of Fretless" model. The bunch of upgrades makes this bass rare and unique: Neck-Through, 2nd magnetic pickup, 34", 19mm, 5pc-neck ... Like new condition, not a single mark on it. For those who did never hear one of these, check "FBass AC6" at YT and you find a lot of world-class fretless players demonstrating this amazing fretless bass model. Technically everything is perfect and works fine. The top is breathtaking and the bass with its smaller sizes is a joy to play. The smooth shapings are simply amazing. This bass would retail today north of 12.000 USD plus shipping and import. TRADED
  8. Update by Jan 1st: Buyer‘s from within UK should be aware that for imports from EU to UK since Jan 1st the UK VAT will be applicable. This VAT has to be paid by the UK buyer once the goods are crossing the borders. Note: As a private seller in EU I can not reduce the price for second hand goods as VAT has never been included in the price. This is the original Matt Garrison Signature 5 model in top condition ! Specs: Amazing Chestnut Burl Top 5pc Ash Neck, 33" Walnut Body Chestnut Tone Block Chestnut Ramp (curved) Ebony Board 19mm spacing Newer (post 2009) Pope preamp with all the jumpers Aguilar DCB5 pickups (original Seymour Duncan Duals shown in the pics will come with the bass !) Weight 4.9 kg Original Fodera HC Everything works fine, technically and aesthetically top ! The Aguilars provide a more aggressive timbre compared to the Duncans. I personally like that Aguilar sound - consider Janek Gwizdalas Fodera which is also a 33" with Aguilars. The Aguilars are not splittable so the Single/Parallel Switch is now a kill switch. The other switches are active/passive and a frequency selector for the EQ. Asking 7900 EUR (approx. 7100 GBP today) plus shipping from Duesseldorf/Germany.

This Tino Tedesco 5/21 with a breathtaking Quilted Maple top was almost traded 2 months ago, but the deal fell through in the end so it is up for sale again. Lightweight Ash Body, Amberburst Pau Ferro fretboard Aguilar DCB 5 pickups Aguilar OBP-1 2-bd with active/passive push/pull Vol/Passive Tone stacked, Bal, Treble, Bass 35“, 19mm spacing, <4 kg Non-original gigbag Plays very easy and comfortable.
