  1. Status Streamline 5 string bass for sale

    Thanks for the comments. It is a keeper but I'm bursting at the seams :-) so heavy compromises must be made....
  2. Status Streamline 5 string bass for sale

    Sorry for the late reply. Gigs were demanding. It is nice isn’t it😉 This can be returned to stock yes, but the improvements are so good that I would ask why... I prefer to sell as is now simply because it’s better and obviously less hassle. My opinion is the stock setup is not as versatile, and lacked true ‘oomph’ and sizzle. ie: going from a p bass sound to a jazz bass sound. Layman terms but you would get the point if/when you hear it!
  3. Status Streamline 5 string bass for sale

    Sorry for late reply. Gigs were a demanding. Slight widening of the holes to fit the East pots. Restoring is just swapping parts I believe. Yes, this one has a truss rod....
  4. Status Streamline 5 string bass for sale

    It is lovely😍 money....ah the dreaded word....
  5. Hi, I have reluctantly decided to sell my Status Streamline 5 string bass. Reasons for sale being: it is not being used, and it is now a luxury and a shame to be not played but stored! I bought it for various reasons including, touring/travel, size, weight and was pleasantly surprised with the playability and feel of the 34” scale neck. I bought it from an older guy last year who didn’t use it much so it was (and still is) in mint condition with no visible dinks etc... I personally did not like the original pickups and active eq (but you may), so I took it to my friend and electroncs guru Sir John East and had him install one of his magnificent Uni-Pre active pre amp. I also had these installed: Seymour Duncan SSB Set NYC Passive Phase II NYC (5 String) Soap Bar Set. It is now the bass it should be! Perhaps it’s because all my other basses have these in them so I know the sound and how to use (or I’m just stuck in my ways:-). Money well spent!! I will include the original electronics and pickups plus an original gig bag, strap and a couple of slightly used strings in the sale. If you don’t know about Status basses look here: http://www.status-graphite.com/status/frames/index_home.html Excellent British build quality by those guys.... Ok enough talk....thanks for you interest and I’m sure whoever buys will be well pleased! I’ve included one of the original photos. Contact me for more info or pics... Regards ps: Collection preferred for safety and its best to try ain’t it? (based in Aylesbury, Bucks).
