Custom sei bass 5 string
£2500

Recommended Posts

Selling my stunning sei custom 5 stringer, stunning exotic woods I can't remember the woods which are in it but it's a work of art. It comes installed with a german noli pre amp ( I think that's how it's spelt) push - pull active pot, stacked bass/treble, stacked low and high mid pot and passive tone control. It's a massive sound. The only bass I would consider is status 5 string bass preferably the king bass model (would also accept the 4 string version as well. Thanks for taking a look!

I saw this in the process of being built. Lovely bass. The top is walnut, think the board was bubinga (with sapwood; ditto the "tone block" in the back) and the back is ash.

Might be nice for potential buyers to see a full length picture, front and back. What's the weight like?

I think that's the nicest fret board i have ever seen,

Not for me as strictly a 4 string player.

Good luck with the sale chap.

Regards

Rob

I think we all need some better pics of this artwork being a Sei owner myself. Front /back. Etc. 😉

It’s not a Millenium, there were only 10 of those and they were extremely high spec. It’s a relatively new model that Martin now offers, stylistically a cross between a Millenium and a Jazz. I have some full pics of 3 of these basses somewhere. They all have through necks with a “tone block” in the back. Had a long conversation with Martin about them when I was in the Gallery a while back as two (including this) were in the build stages and I hadn’t seen them before.

Ok, these seem to have disappeared for some reason. Will post again further down, just in case they don’t come back.

I can't seem to find the picture of the back of that one at the moment, but here are some other examples of the same model, obviously not the bass for sale above:
