Bum and poo! So it turns out my short scale acoustic bass needed medium scale strings... upshot is I’ve got an entirely unused (not even clipped) short scale set of La Bella 750-T white nylon tape wound strings 50/65/85/105 and absolutely nothing to use them for. So, if you’ve got a use for them, as my little karma contribution you’re welcome to have them. Would just appreciate you give a fiver or something to your fave charity as a goodwill gesture to “cover” postage.
PM me if you’re interested. First come first served. Probably just let me know first rather than sending all your details first. Will get back to to you as soon as poss.
2016 Fender Mustang Offset PJ bass (made in Mexico) in sonic blue for sale. Bought last year and only played at home and in the studio. Has a couple of small dings on the top and bottom sides of the body (I have tried to show this in the pictures) and a very small mark on the front of the bottom horn, but otherwise in excellent condition. I have replaced the stock bridge with a Gotoh 201B-4, as the original was rubbish! Strung with LaBella flatwound strings. Did not originally come with a case, but I will send in an old Ritter gig bag (pictured). The bag has seen better days, but the protective aspects of it are all 100%. Plenty of photos below, plus a stock image to better show the colour - it's a hard finish to photograph properly it seems! Will include strap with bass (it's a basic Ernie Ball one) and rubber washer 'strap locks'.
30" scale, stock Fender P and J pickups with 3 way selector and volume/tone controls. Alder body, maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard. A very light and compact bass that is super easy to play and surprisingly versatile. Looking for £375 ono. Based in Birmingham for collection, or can courier (fully insured) at buyers expense (will package properly in gig bag and shipping box) - probably looking between £20 and £45 depending on service etc., but not 100%. Can provide a quote if necessary.
I’ve been experimenting with strings quite a lot recently and so have various sets available. All with very light use, cut for 3 over 2 headstocks.
i) "Platinum” Nickel on round cores, 38" long - 50/70/90/110/130 - £20
ii) "Platinum” Nickel on round cores, 38" long - 45/65/85/105/130 - £20. These have been used through-body, but soft core means should be fine to put on a top load bass.
iii) “Diamond” Nickel on round cores - 55/70/90/110/135, low tension set with tapered low B – 38.5” string length. G string was cut and fitted very briefly, but all others unused - £25
iv) NEW "Platinum" Steel roundwound - .130 gauge 37" length - £5
v) Nickel roundwounds, - 50/70/90/110/135 - 39.25" string length - £25. Used through-body but round core so pliable. Only on the bass for one day.
vi) 2 x NEW La Bella nylon flats, one copper white and one white nylon - .043 gauge – XL scale length - £5 each or both for £8
Thanks for looking
I have a set of La Bella Gut Double Bass Strings I am selling. I tried them & could not get on with gut strings. I also now need my 2nd bass strung with steel strings for arco practise so they are not needed anymore. The whole set is in good condition & has not really been used. I paid £345 for the set so grab yourself a bargain.
This is the product description:
The G and D strings are plain gut. The A and E are Silver Wound. They are an excellent choice for warm pizzicato tone with easy playability and comfortable feel.
Please message me if you have any questions.
