Selling my 2017 Fender Pino Palladino Custom Shop bass. This is the best modern Precision bass I've tried (I have tried a couple before but none were as resonant and responsive as this one). Plays beautifully with a straight neck and low action if desired. Fretwork is perfect. This is in mint condition (it has been relic'ed from new). It's been used with flat wounds only so the fretwork is as new too. Nice, straight neck. Comes with the original vintage tweed case and all the goodies.
Weight: 3.65 kg / 8 lbs
£3195 / 3450 EUR

Would prefer collection but happy to ship within the EU. Here's my feedback thread:
Rather sadly I'm just not playing my Warwick basses anymore so I think it's time they found a new home, so here's my 2003 Custom Thumb NT 5.
I bought this bass nearly new quite a few years ago now, it's spent more of that time tucked away in it's case than it should have so it's still looking pretty good - there's a handful of tiny dings here and there, I can try and get pics if you want but most of them aren't noticeable unless you're looking for them (if you see what I mean).
Custom options wise it's an ovangkol body with an ebony fretboard and a 3 band eq, I had the Dunlop recessed straplocks fitted by the Bass Centre in London where I bought it (if anyone knows Jimmy who used to work there it was him who commissioned the build and sold it to me). Comes with a very solid Warwick flight case and truss rod tool, and of course the straplocks to go with the recessed buttons.
Apart from that it's a Warwick Thumb Bass, pretty distinctive sound and looks, what else do you need to know?
Seriously though, don't be shy with any questions or corrections if you know Warwick basses better then me, I'm asking £1800 (was £2000) but as you'd expect the price is negotiable.
I'll consider trades plus cash either way, I'd be interested in;
Exotic woods/finishes/body shapes on basses, Warwicks with the pre '00s neck profile, Status, Dingwall, something unusual - 5 stringers only. Darkglass heads, barefaced cabs.
Up for sale or trade is my stunning Shuker Single Cut built in Jan 2014. I traded my Conklin Custom for this bass in 2016 with LukeCapon off here. Jon Shuker makes some very high quality basses and this is no exception on the design, fit and finish. A new one of these would set you back around £3k. It is in excellent condition with only minor marks / swirls from playing and comes with a hard case.
I'm open to partial / full trades. Let’s see what ya' got.
Alder body with buckeye facings and black veneer between top and body
34" scale currently tuned B to G
Angled headstock with buckeye veneer - front and rear
7 piece maple / black veneer laminated set neck. 20.5mm deep at 1st fret, 22.5 at 12th, shallow 'C' section
Two way truss rod with carbon fibre reinforcement
Rosewood fretboard with 26 medium frets and 45mm brass nut
Mother of pearl face and side dots
Nordstrand Big Split pickups
Shuker 3 band preamp: treble, mid cut / boost and mid freq stack, bass, pan, vol (pull passive)
Schaller 2000 bridge, set at 18mm string spacing (can adjust from 17 to 19mm)
Weight 8.6lbs / 3.9kg
For sale is my Gould stormbird.
There's a couple of dings here and there but good condition otherwise, working as it should.
I'm only selling as I need funds to cover an unexpected bill and a repair on a broken headstock.
Based in Leeds, collection preferred.
Any questions just ask
