Unfortunately this baby has to go after all, due to financial reasons.
In the meantime I've swapped original soapbar pickups for Nordstrand Single coil HC (in soapbar cover) because I thought that I'll be able to keep the bass, and I prefer more SC sound. They are custom made with staggered pole pieces for 12' radius, and they costed me around 300 euros shipped directly from Carey. Bass also sounds killer with them of course, but little bit more to my taste
Installation is solderless, 15 minutes work.
I'm willing to leave them installed for mentioned price, of course original Soapbars included, so you can decide what you like more.
Sadowsky Standard 4 String #7317
Body: Mahogany / Master grade flame maple top
Neck: Roasted flame maple / Madagascar rosewood
Pickups: Sadowsky soapbar
Weight: 3.62 kg!
It is in MINT CONDITION! Lightweight and resonates like crazy. Sounds huge and sweet, fingerstyle or slap!
Bass like this costs 6300$ at Roger's shop + almost a year wait + VAT, shipping etc. + you can't get something like this from NYC anymore. For example on thomann.de, similar specs Sadowsky's are around 7000 euros.
Bass comes in original Sadowsky case, also like new. Strung with fresh Blue Label SS 45-105 strings. All case candy included of course, and fret protector.
I will put inside the case Sadowsky Comfort strap (size S) like a little gift.

I'm selling my Ibanez Soundgear SR 600 (4 string) Bass due to needing funds for other things.
It was bought on Basschat (unfortunately, I can't remember who as I've not been on the site for a while and all my threads etc. have gone), I believe it's a 2012 model and it comes with a padded bag.
It's a great bass, plays really well, sounds great and has the best two piece swamp-ash body I've seen on any SR (I was planning to buy a new one, but I saw this)! The neck, truss rod, hardwear and electronics are in perfect working order, there is some very minimal fretwear, but nothing a fret dress (or even a decent polish) couldn't sort. The back of the neck is like glass and a dream when gigging.
The body and neck are in great condition, although the body has a few dings on the lower horn and some wear around the input jack socket. The back has very little wear at all, but in all cases I have tried to show these in the photos.
The condition overall is very good, having being looked after, but does have some cosmetic wear, as you'd expect (I've tried to show this in the photos). There are two additional strap button holes (it has schaller strap buttons fitted), which are my preference, but these could easliy be 'lost', especially with this natural finish, with filler or superglue and sanding dust from same or similar timber.
It has all the features you'd expect from the SR series: (taken from Ibanez website. N.B. this bass has the TWO-position mid frequency switch)
Neck type: SR4 5pc Jatoba/Walnut
Jatoba fretboard w/Abalone oval inlay

Please note that the stand is not included, but the padded bag is. You are welcome to come over and try it out. Collection is preferred (I'm in Sheffield), carriage would be arranged by and at the buyer's expense.
Many thanks for looking.
I am selling this beautiful Carl Thompson bass as it is not getting the playing time it needs or deserves.
Its build by Carl himself in the early 90s. it has an EMG pickup and active electronics. the neck is 36"
It has a rare wooden bridge and a rare "hook" shaped upper horn.
The neck is Padauk with Ebony frettboard. i think the top is charry and the wings are mahogany. i am not sure what the center block is.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or send me a private message.
Trades with Ken Smith, Fbass, Wal or vintage fender basses.
The bass is located in Denmark.
