SOLD - FS - Status Series 3 - 4 String - Blue Wraparound LEDs - £2500 - Ex Slipknot
£3450

Recommended Posts

Reduced to £2500 firm.

First of all, this is a very, very reluctant sale but unfortunately my current situation dictates that it must go.

This bass is ex Slipknot. I got it in person from Alex 'Vman' Venturella last year. It was his main touring bass for some time and there are numerous pictures of him playing it on the internet. There is also a live Slipknot DVD where it is played.

It is also the very same S3 that greets you when you click on the 'S3' link on the Status-Graphite page.

Vman swapped out the tuners for Hipshot Ultralites but I was not given the originals. Given that Vman was guitar tech for Slipknot before he was their bass player I trusted that he had done a good job and he has indeed. The Hipshots use the same mounting screw position so you could put Status tuners back on without any problems. No additional holes were drilled.

There are a couple of battlescars, all inflicted on the road with Slipknot, none of them were my doing. There is a chip on the front of the headstock, two small dings on the very top of the headstock, some light scratches on the back and a three surface dings in the lacquer on the top of the body (see pics).

The bass has 3-band EQ and is fitted with blue wraparound LEDs. It comes with the original Hiscox hard case. It has gold Schaller straplocks fitted. It has 19mm string spacing and a 34" neck. Alex got this directly from Rob at Status so I am only the 2nd owner.

Due to the value of the bass, I'm not willing to post it but can meet in either Southampton, Portsmouth or Lymington. A paypal deposit will secure and cash on collection for the rest.

Beautiful
Far too beautiful (and expensive) for me, though
The S3 is Status' best stuff to date all put together in one bass

1. What optional extras are there on the bass besides the LEDs?
2. Do you have any documentary evidence of Vman's ownership? You could ask Rob Green to confirm who he made it for
3. Have you put on the Status owners website statii.com?

Hi mate,

It's all standard spec (19mm string spacing etc) and it wasn't made specifically for Vman. Like I said it's the stock S3 from the Status website. I don't have any documentation but I've spoken to Dawn and I'm sure she'll vouch for its originality. It's also very clear from the grain of the walnut top that it's the same one from the Slipknot photos and videos.

I'm a member on Statii.com but it's not on there at the moment.
