1963 Framus Star Bass 5/150 with Original Case £700 (Pics Added)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm selling my vintage Framus Star Bass. There's not a lot of info on these but it's the same model (and color) that Bill Wyman used in the early days of the Stones. It's in very good condition for a bass that was made (i think) around 1963. It has a crack (about two inches long) near the F hole and one of the original plastic knobs is missing. It's fully functional but it would be worth having the elctronics looked at as its so old. However, it comes with the original strap and case. I'm only the second owner of this bass and have used it over the last few years with a very well known Stones tribute band.

It's a hard one to price as there's so little info on these but the only one i could find online was being sold for £1299 and that was not in as good condition as mine and not with original case etc. I'm selling mine for [b]£700[/b]

Thanks
Alan.

Without attempting to be pedantic.... I'd have thought better pics might [i]raise[/i] the interest.

I agree about better photos. Just not possible at the moment as i'm in London and the bass is in the midlands but i'll try to get it back asap and take more betterer pictures.

Ta
Alan.

My apologies, not intending to disinterest anybody here, mines in need of refurbishment anyway, just thought I'd mention it...

Seriously? Hijacking someone's thread with your own sale?
Very bad form.
