Rob Allen Mouse 30 Fretless (lined) - ON HOLD!
£1600

Recommended Posts

Rob Allen Mouse 30 in as new condition. I'm the original owner, and ordered the bass direct from Rob in 2009.

I listed this back in December without any joy, so have lowered the price to match what other (less spec'd) Mice have been going for on the Basschats.. 

  • Alder body
  • Spruce top (I believe this is the last bass Rob made with a spruce top. At the time of ordering the bass he was switching to maple for the lighter coloured tops. I loved the look of the spruce and grabbed the last piece!)
  • Birdseye maple neck
  • Goncalo Alves fretboard (with extension) and bridge
  • Protec gig bag (very sturdy)

Has only seen studio use, on just a handful of sessions, and has lived most of it's life in it's case in a smoke/pet free studio.

Located in NW6, London. 

Lightweight, and sounds and plays beautifully. She's a beaut!

Collection preferred, but will post within the UK and EU if necessary (at buyers expense). Straight sale only please.

Hi, consider trades?

Has it only volume control?

Hi Auslander. I’m not considering any trades, sorry! Trying to thin the herd, as it were. 

Correct : the single knob is for volume. A very simple but very effective design!

You also have a trimpot in the back for passive tone control ;) You can regulate using a philips screwdriver in the hole of the backplate ;)

Not after any trades, as great as that xotic looks! Would prefer collection or hand delivery in or around London, due to previous nightmares with shipped instruments. May well ultimately consider shipping abroad if no bites locally.

      What you see is what you get !
      Look at the pictures taken under different lights to see the real condition : some few marks, due to the age, but nothing serious at all.
      You can listen it just here, in passive mode only : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1cccx-Ti8USXuofXOIyQLQ5tBQt7ugR42
      If you want some Soundclips, don't hesitate to tell me and ask for more.

      Bass made from italian luthier 4 strings, fretless. PIEZO
      Neck thru body.
      Upgrade made by Pierluigi Cazzola (Laurus) with:
      Bridge on crossbar consisting of 4 single ABM saddles each with Graphtech piezo.
      Active / passive electronics with volume, medium and low settings. Height adjustment on trimmer in the electronic compartment.
      Brass nut with autonomous height adjustment for each string.
      Signs of wear visible in the picture.
      Fantastic: sound very similar to the double bass.
      Very light. Very comfortable handle. Very low action.
      I sell with soft case, with extra hard case.
      Shipping included.
      ...The sound in this song

      Bump for price drop: £850 (is it possible to change the thread title?)
      Bump for trades: Something smaller bodied and more modern. Warwick etc. Maybe a Maple board P-Bass in an interesting colour. Tempt me. 
      Fender USA Standard Jazz Fretless. I bought it new in 2016, so it's one of the very final American Standard models, just before they ceased production.  For those who are unaware, these have the carbon fiber reinforcement in the neck, custom shop 60's pickups and a high-mass bridge. Sunburst finish, black scratch-plate (although I have the original Tort and will include it). This has barely been gigged - maybe three or four times - and has spent most of its short life in a case.  I just don't get on with the offset body, narrow nut and everything else that makes a Jazz what it is. A great bass but not for me. The neck is fantastic and based on the kind of action I can achieve, it must be incredibly true. Extremely clean condition, with just one very tiny dint in the finish located middle of the back of the instrument. I can't get it to show up on a pic though. I've got it strung with the original Fender flats (I think it has rounds in the pic though). Comes with original Fender hard case and with the truss-rod tool. UK shipping will be negotiable.  For everybody’s peace of mind, I'd prefer some kind of personal delivery or collection agreement depending on location - I'm happy to drive for an hour or so from Notts or Coventry - but I could courier it if that wasn't practical.

      [Price reduced to £3500 and open to offers]
      Hi 
      After some careful deliberation i have decided to sell my lovely Mk1 (lined fretless). I purchased this secondhand circa 1995 and it was my primary guitar for several years - gigging and in and out of the studio. But, as I've gotten older (and kids have come along) it is been used less and less and deserves to go to someone who will give it the love and attention it deserves. I am new to this forum so not sure of all the etiquette around selling, but I live in North London and would be happy to entertain visits if someone lived locally and wanted to try it out. (I have a SWR Redhead from back in the day)
      As expected, it has a mahogany core but with elm facings. There are a few scuffs on the body, although the lacquer along the neck is intact. Two screws are missing from the back plate. (It was last set up about 18 months ago, so the strings are equally as old, but i have hardly had it out the case in that time.) Hard case included in the sale, but it is not the original one.
      When sold i would prefer it collected rather than shipped, but can negotiate that as necessary.

      Stunning singlecut bass made in the Fodera workshop in Brooklyn, NYC.
      2009 build.
      Buckeye top. Walnut body. Ebony fingerboard.
      Fodera/Duncan singlecoil pickups with buckeye covers and matching ramp.
      Extended B string.
      26 'frets'.
      34" scale.
      19mm string spacing at the bridge.
      48m nut width.
      Fodera premium padded gig bag.
      Excellent overall condition. Some minor surface bumps which are unnoticeable unless closely inspected.
      3 band EQ with selectable mid requency selector and coil tap switches.
      I will consider pre-CBS Fender Jazz and Precision basses as trade options.
      The bass is now residing in The Bass Gallery, in Camden, London where it can be viewed and played. They have suggested finance options for paying in installments too.
