  1. A bit unsure of letting this superb bass go - but it just doesn't get enough attention from me. Its a 1968 Fender Coronado Bass I - a rare sight. This bass was apparently made for a trade fair as a show piece - it has the "Special" engraved on the back of the headstock. Its well kept for its age and this old lady just plays perfectly. It has gotten new frets a few years ago and also a new bone nut. Other than that - all original. The neck is just a joy to touch and play. Very easy to play and capable of low action (which is pretty rare also on these old basses). The original pickup has those separate magnets that you can adjust the string volume on which is a cool feature. Controls are as simple as Volume and tone. Currently strung with Daddario Black Nylon Flats but will include a set of Labella medium scale flats for that perfect fit on this bass. The bass is healthy, the truss works 100%, tuners are stable and the bridge works as it should. The bridge has lost its "F" inlay - which is normal on these models. Try and google pictures Bass is 30" scale / short scale. I have NO case - but lets discuss a solution for this if you're interested in the bass. Im sure we can work something out! (I have and old Rockbag for the bass which I can include also). Price is 2000€ and I am open to trades. A vintage Mustang or a nice 34" scale 4 string could be interesting. (Can add money towards the right trade). Bass is located in Denmark. And I am experienced in shipping instruments
  2. Alan bought my Fender CS Jazz Bass fretless. Prompt payment and very friendly communication. I had some issues with finding the right box for shipping the bass which dragged the deal to about 2 weeks in total. He was very understanding and patient. Thank you for that. Highly recommended! Thank you!
  3. Had a few inquiries about the "missing" Custom Shop decal on the back of the headstock. Well, long story short I got this from Fenders CS support (can email the full correspondence to a buyer). "Hi Mikkel, Thank you for getting in touch and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Long story short, these fretless Jazz basses were constructed with 'Jaco Pastorious' base model necks - which are visible in the pictures attached. Because they are usually fitted with strap pins, they didn't include the Custom Shop logos on the back of the headstock. The guitar is still an authentic Custom Shop instrument, but just doesn't feature the decal because of the Jaco connection. I hope this helps clear this up for you, and if there's anything else I can help with please let me know." I hope this clears it up
  4. Feeler as im not really sure about letting this go... Its by far one of the best fretless basses I have played and lucky enough to have owned.. (and I have owned a few over the years 😅) I am the second owner - the first and original owner ordered this as a special order "Jaco tribute". But with the "twist": an awesome Coral Pink color with "Closet Classic" relic job as he didnt like the concept of making basses looking "fake" old. So, its basically a Jaco Tribute with a super cool funky color! Epoxy coated rosewood board, quatersawn maple neck.. Feels out of this world good! Select alder body Custom wound pickups Case and all case candy present Certificate The instrument has been very well taken care of! The finish, in the right lighting, has some amazing crackling going on. Very resonant and organic sound. Playability is perfect. With a bit of neck roll off it has that instant Jaco vibe - with both pickups 100% it has a lovely blossoming and dark sound that just mixes so well with a band! The color is very hard to photograph.. But I did my best Trades / part trades with a good Precision, Mustang or an US Lakland 4 Bass is located in Denmark. Will ship via UPS. Contact for quote. 2750€ / approx 2350£
  5. Just got this bass a couple of weeks ago - bought from a super nice fellow on this board. However - due to unforeseen expenses I have to let it go. Selling for what I paid for it. Its a 86' EB Music Man Stingray Fretless. All original except the pickguards (one ply black and a tortoise is included). Superb bass in every aspect. Specs like a pre-EB Stingray, with the nice wide and flat neck. VERY lightweight compared to other Stingrays! 3.9kg on my digital kitchen scale. Fingerboard is in great shape - has been wearing flats for most of its life. All mechanical and electronical parts are 100% healthy and working properly. It has aged beautifully if you ask me. The finish has a lovely crackling all over and the back side is worn from a belt buckle. See pics. Case included. (Dont know if its original - but it works!) Bass is located in Denmark. Buyer pays shipping. 1000£. (Price is firm)
  6. I just bought a lovely fretless Stingray from James. Very very very smooth transaction. Friendly and very good communication. All throughout the deal he was very informative with how far in the process he was. Really can't recommend James enough! Thank you!
  7. Nicola just bought my EB Music Man Caprice. Very pleasant and easy international transaction. Payment arrived next Day! Very friendly guy and great communication. Highly recommended! Will hopefully do business again! Grazie!
  8. Ok.. I see competition. I'll match the price. 1200£ plus shipping.
  9. Bought Daryls lovely white Stingray with matching headstock. Great price, agreed to go through the hassle of shipping to Denmark, very very friendly and responsive comms. Again, thank you!
  10. Up for grabs is this amazing instrument, The MM Caprice Bass. Very light weight - around 3.6-3.7kg, super lively and extremely resonant. The P and J style humbuckers make for a very versatile and great voiced instrument that can do about anything you'll throw at it. Absolutely mint condition. Not a scratch on it. All case candy and original case included. Strung with Labella flats which gives it an awesome old school sound. Deep and strong fundamentals and a nice sweet top. A set of Elixir rounds will be included ( have been mounted on the bass for a short while, still very fresh). Would consider trades with classic style basses or a nice high end fretless. 1200£ plus shipping from Denmark.
  11. Gorgeous MM Sabre Classic up for grabs. Impeccable craftsmanship, perfect playability and a very versatile and lovely sounding bass! This bass has been played a lot and it shows. It has its fair share of small scuffs and dings but nothing major. See pics. Original case included - but it is worn yet functional. I would trade for the right P-bass, Yamaha BB or a nice fretless (not P). Bass is located in Denmark. Shipping on buyer. (around 50£).
