      Some of you will probably be thinking this is no surprise as Fender's struggles have been well known as have Gibson's with quality control.
      In the recent past, Paul Reed Smith raised the issues of there being fewer student guitar players and therefore less adults to buy premium quality instruments.  At the time I recall the idea was dismissed by many but Gibson's issues are undeniable.

      Hey guys and girls, 
      Up for grabs is a Short Scale, Gibson 2014 (120th anniversary model) SG Bass in Fireburst satin finish. 
      unfortunately I’ve been stung with a large unsuspecting bill and having to clear out my gear to fund it. Inc my new Ashdown Original amp head for Christmas. I could cry! 
      Overall condition is great, considering the satin finish I can’t appear to find any marks. Same goes for the hardcase too. 
      Gibson site specs: >>>Click Here <<<

      £550 cash or £650 trade value 
      Paypal, bank transfer and cash on collection accepted.
      Trades accepted but with cash my way. Price non negotiable 
      Next day delivery included.

      Hi everyone! Want to get this moving so I have dropped the price. This is a spectacular offer.

      Players bass up for sale here. My career focus has changed a little bit so I'm selling my go-to 5-string. It's a really good instrument.

      I had my luthier install the P-tone pickup (original is included) which I really like. It doesn't sound exactly like a p-bass (I think more so to do with the scale length) but it is massive sounding and has a slight 'chew' to it which I love. I find most of the time playing the bass I have it in parallel mode.

      Currently, I have it set up with a fairly high action and labella flats. I can set the action lower if any prospective buyers like it low. The bass sounds great with both rounds and flats, though my preference is for flats. The bass is really well designed. I'm not a big person but never have issue reaching low C on the 37 inch B string.

      Tone control is easy to use and useful. With the tone all the way off it bumps some low mids. Don't know what the capacitor is called because I'm super non-techy - it sounds good!

      It's been all over the place and shared the stage with heartthrobs such as Marti Pellow of Wet Wet Wet fame

      It's condition is pretty good but because this bass has put in real work it has a couple of cosmetic imperfections. I like it like that, but understand some of you collector types prefer a perfect instrument! 

      Comes with a levys gig bag (with a bit of a broken front handle), allen wrenches and stuff, labella flats (£50 or something new) and the original neck pickup.

      -I took it to a BBC session you might want to listen to. You'll need headphones - https://www.youtube....h?v=EJSHxSuYX-0

      -It's also all over the Skipinnish album 'The Seventh Wave'. I managed to squeeze in some bass w***age in this tune https://open.spotify...EzVIW3j3O3izpG8 in the verse starting at 1:52
      -This track shows it in a gentler setting - https://open.spotify...ohkMEOCB0SUNpt2

      Some instagram vids I uploaded a while ago;
      I dropped the price again, making this a really cracking deal. This is about £2,300 of kit.

      Up for sale or trade is my Gibson Thunderbird 2008, purchased from Bass Direct towards the end of last year (original add http://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Gibson_Thunderbird_2008.html). Love the look, it doesn't neck dive, it isn't too heavy, the pickups are very powerful and it can deliver a decent range of tones. However it doesn't suit my playing style so if it stays with me it looks like becoming wall candy, (very pretty wall candy!) there are other basses I want to try so better to move this on.
      The bass has a very obvious area of wear on the top horn, the body also has numerous marks and small dents, head stock also has a couple of small dings but the neck and fret board are spotless, I can't find a mark on them. I have tried to take pictures to highlight things. Fitted a set of DR fatbeams 45 to 105 and added dunlop straplocks apart from that it is as I received. Weight on the bathroom scales comes in at 4.3Kg , Mark confirmed when I was buying it was one the lighter examples he has seen. Comes with fitted hard case.
      Trade options - 4 string and preferably under 4Kg with cash either way if necessary.
      Happiest with face to face deals, location is PE8. Will travel for the right deal but more than 2 hours driving and I tend to get grumpy.
