  1. Sold pending payment. Fully working Bartolini 8CBP P Bass Pickup - £60 delivered. These are £110 new (Bass Direct). [color=#000000][size=4] [size=4]Info from Bartolini:[/size][/size][/color][color=#000000][size=4] [size=4]The 8CBP is the Fender Precision Bass replacement pickup. They are highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for their classic tone with more lows and low-mids.[/size][/size][/color][color=#000000][size=4] [size=4]The two pickups in the P-Bass pair overlap each other by 3/4″ (19mm).[/size][/size][/color][color=#000000][size=4] [size=4]The “Classic Bass” series bass pickups are passive designs featuring an extended and more resonant frequency range. They have far more “air” and definition at the top without sacrificing lows and low mids. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.[/size][/size][/color]

  3. Ken Smith BSR5MW - 5 String

    [quote name='obi 2 kenobi' timestamp='1504001648' post='3361993'] Hi, where are you based ? How much does it weigh ? Finally, is it 18v eq ? Thanks Ken [/quote] Hi Ken, Based in Essex. It is a 9v system, and weight is approx 4.3kg. Hope that helps!
  4. Ken Smith BSR5MW - 2002 sn. 5MW210202W. It's time to move this stunning bass on (staying strictly 4 strings now). In my ownership the bass has never been gigged and only seen home use, so for its age, this KS is in great condition. This is a 5 string, bolt-on model with a Tiger Maple core and Walnut wings - get the look of a neck-thru but the attack of a bolt-on! The 3-piece Maple neck hosts a Pau Ferro/Morado fingerboard set with 24 frets. The headstock has a 3+2 arrangement. Gold hardware. As for electronics, it has a pair of KS humbuckers with a 3-band EQ (there are no dip switches). It comes with the original KS hard case - though one of the catches doesn't work (this happened prior to me owning it). I'm in no rush to sell, so no silly offers and unfortunately I won't ship this outside of the UK. Potential trades - a nice Jazz or P (4 string) be it Custom Shop, Celinder, Alleva Coppolo, Nordy may tickle my fancy.

  7. Sold Markbass Mark Stand - good condition bar a little dust and fluff! Never gigged, only had home use - £22 delivered. More info from Markbass; [size=4][i][font=Arial, sans-serif]The Mark Stand allows you to position your Markbass combo or speaker cabinet in floor monitor mode and experience the best sound possible.
