This was originally bought here on Basschat as a back up instrument to my 5-string Peavey Cirrus. It served well as a back up and wasn’t actually used except in a rehearsal and at home! It plays great however, and for those wanting a narrower string spacing on a 5-string it’s a good fit. It feels ‘easier’ to play than my Musicman Bongo (due to neck shape I suppose). It reminds me of the smoothness of my Mike Lull, but with a narrower string spacing. The active EQ can dial in a huge range of sounds making this an extremely versatile instrument. This article from back in the day features it in a high end 5-string shoot out:
Here are some of the specs as listed in that article:
Condition: very good with just a few minor flaws (see photos): surface scratch on the back of the bass; a slight string mark on the edge of the neck pickup; small mark on the back near the neck join.
This bass does not come with a case, so pickup preferred, but willing to discuss shipping. Based in Bradford.
For sales - my lovely Shuker 5-sting single-cut. I bought this from John in December last year, and he had just taken it back as a part exchange. It’s a beautiful bass to play, the neck join is exquisite. Pretty wide-range of sounds available from the Aaron Armstrong pickups. I’ve currently got it set as E-C but can put back to B-G if wanted. It’s great either way. Some more details below.
Happy to ship local and international (buyer pays) and it’s got a lovely Shuker hard-case (made by HISCOX).
I’ve just bought another bass (Ha!) so don’t really want trade. But would consider a sunburst p bass with some mojo..
Anything that looks like a scratch or a ding in the pictures is just a trick of the light - there’s none!
I live near Reading in the UK if you want to pop round and have a slap. 🙂
