That FuNkShUi's old Limelight is mine. Its THE only bass I will never sell. Best Precision I ever played....and I have played lots of them. Sound, looks ,playability are really something special. 

Ah, you beat me to it Mikkoantt......
I tried that bass, and loved it. Unfortunately for me, I was waiting to sell another bass first....
Ever since I played that bass of yours, I was convinced that one day I'd have a Fiesta Red Limelight P
Your bass is amazing, and you are right to decide you'll never sell it

uzzel: discreet beat me to it - I was just going to post a link to Mark's website
I emailed him through that website, and he was really easy to deal with
- also, they've got some fab collectible basses on there too :)
(another thing to mention, he sometimes does part-ex as well....)

I've always wanted one of those, what do their prices start at? 

If you set your budget at around £1k youll be more or less in the ballpark so to speak, by and large, all things being equal, give or take. :D

Oooft, that's a lot more than I have right now.

Still less than a 63 RI though! 

However, do they work on a deposit scheme basis?

Considering what you get, its a complete bargain. You'll pay less if you can snag a used one on here, though.

Out of interest, are both pickups Limelight's own or did you request something different?

Both pickups are Limelight's own. I'd heard their pickups before, and was well pleased with what I'd heard
I believe they are hand-wound. The certainly sound the biz anyway :)

Yes, depending on what you want, they are around £850 - just under £1K I believe. Mark will give you a quote on what you're after
And yes, though they aren't '63 RI's - they are less than one, and I think you'd be hard pressed to beat them IMHO
As Mr discreet says, you could wait for one to come up second-hand on the marketplace here, if you wanted to save a bit of cash....
You could always sell it on again, if it doesn't quite meet all your needs (you'd likely get your money back, as they seem to sell for a consistent sort of price)

I really should have bought the one FuNkShUi was selling some time back, as I liked it so much
I waited for another Fiesta Red P to come up, and a couple did (one very recently) but I always seemed to miss them, as they went quickly...
That said, I'm glad I got mine P/J'ed as I'm really sold on that pickup arrangement (and it's something I wouldn't dare do to a '63 AVRI)

I'm going to send a cheeky email to them now, you might find some of my basses for sale sooner rather than later though! 

Email sent about a 63 spec'd bass. Hopefully Lake Placid Blue, I've looked at some of the other bass companies but nobody does a colour like the big F LPB. So hopefully it'll be doable.

I'm guessing no here, but would they do one as a 5er?

Cool, depends on the wait time if I can order straight away, if not it'll have to be the end of March/start of April before I can do it. 

But going through the limelight thread there's a lot of groovy basses. 

This example in this thread is a stunner though!

You should get 6 or 8 weeks to find the balance. :)

Edit: There you go, wrong again. :D

      This is a collectors' article, besides being the best P Bass I have ever owned, without a doubt. This bass is part of the history of an incredible musician, which played with names such as Steve Vai, Neil Zaza, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Dan Hartman and Billy Joel and even legendary Miles Davis.

      I bought this bass from a New Jersey resident who bought it from the person who did TM's Estate sale. He visited TM's house and shipped this beauty to me in Brazil, where I used to live. Now, after moving to the UK, I am playing less and less, and it makes sense to sell this to a collector/actual player, which will take care of this legacy moving forward.

      Originality-wise, electronics of this bass are entirely original except for one of the pots. The pickguard is broken next to the cable jack, typical for old P basses. The body was obviously stripped and covered with glossy finishing – probably it is not nitro, I'd say it is PU. One thing that dates the stripping is that there's a picture of TM with this bass dating back to early 70s from what it seems... so it's been like that for a while. And a funny fact, when I got the bass, the neckplate was flipped. I left it as TM knows what works better.

      Everything else is clearly original, and I can back up originality after collecting old Fender basses for a few years.

      Included on the sale:
      - Bass;
      - OHSC;
      - Covers (both pickup and bridge);

      I will try to ship some of the memorabilia that was included in the original sale to whoever buys it. I left all of it in Brazil when I moved in as I had no intentions to sell it... if you're interested, leave me a message and I will send you more pictures.

      Here's a new lockdown svid track, "Sink".
      Pounding Precision (a parts build by me,  played by John) and resonating Rickenbackers (played by me) abound...
      Social distancing and minumum use of loo paper rules were carefully observed.
      Hope you're being creative too...

      Price drop to £850
      An absolutely stunning example with matching headstock Maruszczyk Jake 5+ P/MM that is around 7lbs / 3.2Kg in weight,
      Fitted with passive Delano MC5 HE/M2 and PC5 HE/M2 pickups and comes with a Hiscox hard case.
      New D'Addario nickel rounds fitted but I can include some used DR Sunbeams if you'd prefer.
      18mm string spacing at the bridge
      Bought from the Gallery a few months ago (I've used their photo's as they are better than mine) and had Adrian at Maruszcyk paint the headstock the same colour as the body.
      No trades
      Couriers are still delivering at the moment, so posting isn’t an issue.
      If you've ever wanted a lightweight 5 stringer that weighs so little that a 2 or 3 hour set leaves little to no impression on your ageing shoulders, then this is the bass to have
