FS: Sei Singlecut

Recommended Posts

First up, I have to say that I am a huge fan of Martin's basses. However, I am not quite getting on with the Singlecut - also known as 'The Melt'! It's a 33" scale, PJ pup configuration, 40mm top nut, red led's along the top edge of the fingerboard. It has custom wound Bare Knuckle P & J. The neck is flamed maple / purpleheart with a birdseye fingerboard. The body is alder with a flamed maple / cocobolo top. The circuit is Demeter 3 band. It's very light - just on the 8lb mark I think. Beautiful to look at and very easy to play. Great tonal range and has just had a complete set-up. This bass was originally built for Alex at the Gallery. I was asking £1400 but, just to move it quickly, I'm asking[b] £1250. [/b]No offers, one price. Comes with a[b] brand new Fusion gig bag. [/b]

I'll add that the pickups aren't the EMGs in the photos; Alex replaced them with custom wound Bare Knuckle P & J which he preferred prior to my obtaining it. The neck is flamed maple / purpleheart with a birdseye fingerboard. The body is alder with a flamed maple / cocobolo top. The circuit is Demeter 3 band.

I loved it; one of my favourite basses that I've ever played / owned. I also found it very comfortable indeed. FWIW there are clips on Youtube; I believe the clips are through a cheap Crate combo which gives you some idea of how good the bass sounds.

Sorry to hear it hasn't worked out and best of luck with the sale Pete.

Sounds every bit as good as it looks ;)
The more I play this the more I think I should keep it! Might give it a couple of days, if nobody shows any interest I'll withdraw it (and for those who are waiting for a price reduction...forget it).
