Sire V7 5 String - SOLD PENDING

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. 

I got this for a run with The Billy Joel Songbook Tour that needed a 5 String. The clutch in my car has gone so unfortunately this needs to go. 

These basses can have some pretty ropey factory fretwork so I had my guitar tech replace and level all the frets (An expensive job), it now plays better than any other V7 I've played, its also had an electrical service and a fresh set of Newtones. Its been in a flight case and looked after the whole time Ive had it.

Its a great example of these basses and Ive put a lot into it, but I seldom use a 5 string and needs must. 

Based in Liverpool but travel all over. I am happy to ship at buyers expense. 

Any questions please do get in touch.

Enjoy Conan - I have the exact same one and love it.   I used to have GAS for various basses but mine is sorted thanks to my V7, although I would like a P7 to make a set.....

I'm really impressed with it! Very playable and great sounding. The preamp is fantastic (if a little bass heavy...). First five string I've owned that feels comfortable and makes we want to try to master five strings. Time will tell on that one! :)

I find I rarely use mine in active mode - sometimes I use the advantage of the pre-amp by having a bit of bass dialled in and then use it as a switchable bass boost for effect....

      Selling my Corvette unlined Fretless 5. 
      Turns out I’m not as good at fretless playing as I imagined so this just isn’t getting used. A real shame but I have my eye on something else. 
      Made in Germany in 2008. Bubinga body, Ovangkol neck with ebony fingerboard, with minimal markings. 
      Natural oil finish and carefully treated weekly with the Warwick wax. (Included in sale)
      Passive electronics with volume, pick-up blend and tone controls. I was very surprised by the variety of sounds that come out of those controls! MEC dynamic correction pups.
      Currently strung with Rotosound 45-130 flatwounds. 
      Weight is 6kg.
      Includes Warwick Rockbag, surface finishing wax and truss rod tool. 
      Open to reasonable offers.
      Buyer to collect from Copenhagen, Denmark or can post within the EU at buyers expense.

      Pricedrop 3.450 € open for offers, looking for Fender Jazz Bass orginal 70ies or CS 
      13.08.2019 => New Fodera Nickel Strings, polished and waxed the instrument, feels like new 😉
      I sell this amazing bass because I always grab my Le Fay anyway. Maybe trade with P Bass CS possible.
      The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
      The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
      Anyone who already knows and played Jerzy Drozd basses knows, anyway. Exchange offers are of interest, I look forward to offers and inquiries if interested by mail.
      Specs as follows.
      2006 Jerzy Drozd Obsession Excellency 6 Strings 35" Scale 24 Frets Etimoe Body Zebrawood Top 3 Piece Maple Neck 7 Screws Bolt-on Maple Neck Ebony Fretboard Matching Headstock Two pieces Jerzy Drozd Bridge Two Jerzy Drozd Single Coils Pickup Aguilar OBP-3 Preamp 18mm strings spacing, possible to up to 19mm or down to 16.5mm. 9mm at nut Ebony Nut Asymetrical D Neck Controls : Volume/Blend/Bass/Medium 400hz or 800hz/Treble Trussrod : One double-acting fully working Weight : 4.4kg Machine heads : Gotoh Controls Knobs : Wood, maple and Zebrawood.

      Fender Jazz 1962 reissue
      Made in Japan in the early 90’s
      Black with tortoise shell scratch plate
      Refretted in the last 12 months by James Millman in Bideford. http://www.millmanguitars.co.uk/
      Upgraded Schaller 3D bridge, greater mass and fully adjustable including string spacing
      Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder pick-ups and I have the original pick-ups
      The bass is pushing 30 years old so is showing some wear but no major knocks or dinks. Some lacquer has come away at the neck socket but hard to see..
      Priced to sell at £650 or would consider trade for quality 5 string.
      Would prefer collection but could organise postage at your cost.
