Dean 6 Fret, Price Drop £80

Recommended Posts

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.

Pretty much yes.  I have done the same thing to my 4-string music man, with the exception that the body is heavy enough to not need any more weight to balance ok.

Sorry can I just clarify...

Is that lighter part between the pickups, a chunk of wood carved out of the body?

And a hole in the back with some lead shot glued into it..... to make the bass balance better?

      Hi . I've got a  RMI Aurora NW7BPX 7 strings bass for sale 850£ ono
      It's a beautiful instrument and plays very well. The Delano electronics are excellent, providing a very clear sound I think, with many different combinations/tonal possibilities. The extended register allows you to play bass lines, chords, leads or solos that sound nice, clear and full all over the neck.
      The neck is wide, as expected on a 7 string but still, comfortable to play. It's in excellent condition, with very few small marks on the body. 
      You can find some info about the luthier Mark Ramsay and his bass creations here:  http://www.ramsay-bass.co.uk/

      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.

      Paypal, bank transfer and cash on collection accepted.
