Sei flamboyant 6 - NOW SOLD
£1750

Recommended Posts

I've been on the fence for a while about the bass. It is an excellent, excellent, early sei. Beautiful feel and perfect at 34 scale. B is huge but defined and it's got a great tone for whatever is required be it old school, modern, upper register stuff etc.

I acquired the bass in a trade always with the intention of moving it on, couldn't quite do it (and Mrs Bassdoyle is always tremendously supportive) but the reality is I have another Sei 6 which Martin made for me a couple of years ago. They are very different but 'my' bass edges it and this one is rarely played.

Some of the other key features are as follows:

String spacing 18mm

Weighs around 10lbs, very good balance in my view

Low action around 2.5mm at the 12th fret

Blue side led's activated with a push/pull on the vol control

Shack active circuit 3 band with dip switches in the back for different tonal options

Piezo pickups in the bridge totally blendable

Bartolini pickups

Carbon bars in the neck

Decent hiscox case included (has a crack but only cosmetic). I could probably do a gigbag instead if you would prefer.

It's up for sale but really I'm looking to flip for a decent Milleresque jazz or possibly a spector 5/6 Euro. If you have something else and want to trade ideally with some cash my way this could well be cool too.....

It is not a new bass to the forum, here is a previous listing:

You'll notice one shot with a crack in the finish. This has been checked by Martin at the Gallery, it's surface only, no issues.

Finally, in answer to some of the questions the bass is in Norwich. You are welcome to try if you like, or I'd be happy to travel for around an hour to handover if helpful.

All the best,

Abd

Yes it is. Lot's of enquiries but no-one has gone past the first date yet...

I certainly imagined doing more, but long-distance relationships don't work for me. :)

      PAULMAN J6 CUSTOM - HANDMADE BASS
      £750
      Here we have a Paulman custom J6 handmade one off 6 string Jazz style bass, made by the late great Paul Mcnab of Huddesfield.
      Custom handmade bass
      Ash body / Flame maple carved top
      Birds eye maple neck
      Ebony fingerboard with custom inlays
      Bone nut
      Schaller hardware (bridge and machine-heads)
      Delano SB pickups
      ACG - EQ2 filter based preamp with passive control (similar to Alembic filter preamp)
      Weight 12lb

      Originally made as a 5 string, the bass has been professionally converted to a 6 as the neck width and general vibe of the bass allowed it to be so, in fact it asked for it to be so! It has made it into an awesome J6 tbh!  
      It's a bit heavy for long gigs at around 12lb but if that is not a major concern for you, read on...

      Originally purchased from Bass Direct a couple of years ago this bass would suit a 6 player who likes a more narrow string spacing, it's 15 - 16mm. It has loads of tone as you'd expect from a huge lump of wood and a filter based preamp and also has a nice bright acoustic tone too.
      I'm selling up as I'm packing up playing live due to a long term shoulder injury and I only really need one bass.
      Nice Eden Metro 2x10 combo for sale here too.
      https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/320325-eden-metro-combo-2x10/
      I also have three other handmade custom type basses for sale on here at the links below, (links to follow), all four basses are offered up here on BC at £750 each, which I think is very low money for what they really are. It would be easy to find far lesser basses than these at much more money online.

      https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/320300-zoot-iceni-custom-top-5/
      IF YOU PLAY WITH A FAST LIGHT TOUCH AND LIKE A LOW ACTION ON YOUR BASSES, THIS WILL BE UP YOUR STREET! 
      I'm based near Biggleswade, Beds BTW and would prefer collection as it can be viewed in the flesh then too.
      £750, cash on collection. (Including Hiscox hard case)

      I am selling this Dean 6-string fretted bass as I've only played 4-string for many years now.  It is in decent shape and has not been played that much, although it has some ugly modifications...which are:
      The circle cutout in the back of the bass contains lead pellets and epoxy resin.  This was done to make the bass balance better as the body is very light.
      I added a strap attachment point as shown.  It makes the bass lean forward and means less angle for the left hand to try and reach around; probably not for everyone.
      The cutout between the pickups is so that strings can be muted with the thumb under the strings, which is a method I've always preferred.
       
      Electronics and pickups are unmodified.  Cash and collection only from North London please.  I have a little guitar amp for testing purposes.  Can also provide a gig bag which is in bad shape but will let you take it home safely.  Strap included.  This bass was purchased new for about £400.
