[SOLD] GODIN A5 Ultra Fretless Natural
£1100

Recommended Posts

***** SOLD *****

Awesome Godin A5 Ultra Fretless, with original Godin soft case included.

It has triple output modes, simultaneously functioning:

  1. The first output is a passive jack output for the Lace Sensor slim magnetic pickup only.
  2. The second one is an active jack output where it's possible to mix the magnetic pickup to the single saddles piezo bridge with a great and very complete preamp.
  3. The third output works together with the others or alone and it's a 13-pin midi plug for the connection of both Roland GK systems or other synths and also to PC via Midi converter.

Great aesthetic conditions and perfect functional conditions!

Great possibility and convenience of having a magnetic (like Jaco) sound and a very deep and truthful like double bass (Piezo) acoustic sound.

Foreign Currency: about payments different from the Euros currency you can pay by clicking using this ►Transferwise bank transfer◄ link.

FOR SALE this awesome GODIN A5 SA ULTRA FRETLESS Natural. Original bag included. PRICE DROP TO 1100€ (My last price, about 1000 GBP).
Great aesthetic conditions (4/5), perfect functional conditions (5/5)!

I sell because I bought a fretless solid body + 5 strings double bass. Great possibility and convenience of having a magnetic (like Jaco) sound and a very deep and truthful like double bass (Piezo) acoustic sound.

I am NOT INTERESTED IN EXCHANGES/PERMUTS. Thank you! 😉

Hi, the last model is the same, it have only a wood thumb but piezo, pickups, synth, preamp and construction are the same.

I can inform myself about shipping costs to Czech Republic. I'll update you soon.

Thank to you!

      ******£900 plus postage********   I’m selling my stunning Overwater J-Series 4 str fretless.   SPECS:   34" scale 4.4 kg Controls: Volume, Pickup blend, and 3 way Overwater Tone control (bass thick outer ring, mids top ring, then pull out top ring for top end)   It’s an incredible bass, I had custom built for me by Overwater in 2005, with translucent blue quilted maple finish and ebony fretboard.  It sounds amazing: i've rarely played any fretless that sings like  this one, without the harsh zingy sound of some cheaper brands.   I used the bass on the West End show Stephen Ward cast recording in 2013, as well on the show itself (for 5 months), but otherwise it stayed in the studio.   It does have a few dings from the 5 months I mentioned in the tiny Orchestra pit at the Aldwych (quick bass changeovers) but luckily they’re mainly on the back and sides.  (I've highlighted them in the photos.)  If you're a collector looking for a perfect instrument to hang as a decoration, the dings on the back might put you off but if you're a player looking for an exceptional, singing fretless with incredible tone/playability and a stunning finish, this will blow your mind!   Brand new to build they're about £2750-2800, i’m asking £950 plus postage.   I've included a recording of the bass, a cover of a Nick Drake tune called 'From the morning' Jaco/Joni style, a good example of the DI tone.   I'm also throwing in a soft case from Overwater (missing a small buckle on the top pocket)   J

      £250 UK.  Open to trades
      Really fun addition to any set up.. Only Selling as I need something with MIDI in (as well as MIDI out) ...as I'm using a fairly involved MIDI/Ableton setup.
      Very Good Condition (See photos) 
      Comes With Power Supply. 
      The pedalboard brings the Studiologic touch to your feet allowing control of any MIDI device. It is the perfect companion to your compact digital organ and a hands free controller for musicians performing either on a guitar or a microphone or for driving a massive bass sound with the tip of your toe.
      The MP Pedalboard control panel allows transposing, MIDI channel selection and MIDI program change through its 4 rugged generously sized big push buttons. Its design features optimize transportability and solidness both in the studio and on the stage.

      *please note* this is not the same as the Deluxe, this is one of the first Elites that took over from the Deluxe in 2015/2016.
      Times as they are, I need to shift this guy. He's served me well over the years as my main bass through festivals and live sessions but is still in great condition.

      Not really after trades but before you make offers, I'll only consider trades with a minimum of £500 my way. Preferably Japanese (lawsuit Ibanez or similar and MIJ Fenders) or USA Fenders. Passive only. Anything else, I'm probably not interested. I'm selling out of need and not want.

      If you're not familiar with them, this is the model with the Musicman style truss wheel. It has an active/passive switch and 3 band EQ.
      The neck is compound, graduating from a C shape to a D at the 12th fret. 

      Here's a review from Premier Guitar: https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/24081-fender-american-elite-precision-bass-review

      I gutted him once because I don't like active circuitry, the home made tort plate is left over from that and will still fit the original bits if you make an extra hole and maybe do a bit of light filing.
      I'm the 2nd owner. I didn't get a tool for the truss wheel and haven't been able to find one specific to the Elite but I've managed to make adjustments with a regular allen key and some caution. There are a couple of little marks on the wheel from adjustments (pic 4). The scratchplate is a little scratched up so you know it's done its job but only noticeable under scrutiny.
      In terms of dings, there are a couple of minors pictured towards the end. Otherwise, it's been loved and cared for. Currently strung with some old GHS Pressurewound but can find some rounds to put on if you prefer. 
      Case had some stickers, some marks left but easy enough to remove if you care to. Otherwise, perfect working order with 2 keys.

      Will ship if buyer arranges but meet up obviously preferred. I am based in Walton On Thames, 10 minutes west of Kingston.
