    FOR SALE: Overwater Twins

    Just for clarification purposes. I am prepared to take partial trade on either one or both of these basses, that’s partial, not I hasten to add all trade, cash is a requirement. Your trade has to be realistically priced with snaps and history. Thank you

    What a small ‘werld’, bought Dave’s Status ‘T’ Bass, collected today at a motorway services. Had dealings before (Status, don’t you know) but never met until today. An Aberdeen Robert Gordon’s boy, I spent 30 years in Aberdeen up until 5 years ago. Lots to talk about, bass, Trace Elliot, Acoustic... one of those meets where theres not enough time. Suffice to say, great guy to deal with, honest and true.. 10/10
  8. This is no longer a ‘Feeler’ for my “Twin” Overwater basses. These “Twin” Custom Built Overwater 35” scale, 5-string basses come complete with a Hiscox hard case. Having owned Overwater Progress 3 basses I would say these are a more finely ‘tuned’ version with a slightly slimmer look. I have not gigged the fretless, just fannied about getting my intonation right and the fretted has been out to play live maybe 6 times and similar amount rehearsaling. Both necks are of 3-piece maple and sycamore construction with Ebony fingerboard running through the Ash faced body, with a Walnut rear. A really neat touch is the front of the headstock is faced in Ebony to match the fingerboard. Both Basses are stunning to look at with the flame of the Ash body face wood. Both basses have a strong even sound down to the B string. Having owned other 35” Scale Overwaters I can confirm these are no exception to their quality of sound and construction. The tuners are black to match the Ebony of the headstock, as is the bridge plate with brass adjusters. The Pre Amps are both effective and simple to use offering volume, pan +/- 15db bass and treble which appear to be interactive. Fretted Fretless Weight: 10.7llb 10.4llb Nut Width: 46mm 46mm String Spacing Nut: 9mm 9mm String Spacing Bridge: 18mm 18mm There are some minor cosmetic marks on the fretted bass, as this has seen the most action from its previous owner, whilst the Fretless is ‘as new’ in an unmarked condition. These basses are sublime and it is difficult for me to move them on, but I can do without the niggling pains. Ideally I would like to maximise the cash element of any (if any) trade. But a Fretless (unlined) 34" 5 string might float my boat as might a lightweight head/cab rig. Don't be too disappointed if your idea and value of a trade do not match mine. Thanks For Looking, any questions PM me for a prompt answer.
