A very reluctant sale of a fantastic bass. Bought locally a couple of years ago as a backup/alternative to my Dingwall, I’ve ended up using it exclusively for recording, so it’s in the same very good condition as when I acquired it. It has a few minor nicks and scratches on the body and headstock which I’ve attempted to show on the photos, but it’s excellent for a 20 year old instrument. I’m selling it as unfortunately it’s just a little too heavy for me to stand with for long periods due to some long standing lower back/hip issues.

I’d prefer to sell it directly in person locally (happy to meet somewhere within roughly a 50 mile radius of Wirral), but I’m also open to shipping with insurance at the buyer’s expense.
I’m also open to trades for another (lighter) 5er of similar quality/spec but I’m definitely a try before I buy kind of guy, so again it would have to be located fairly local to me.
Thanks for looking!
