Recommended Posts

This is one of Martin Petersen's earliest builds. He estimated that it's something like 27 years old. It has been totally refurbished and resprayed by Martin Sims at Sims guitars, and recently setup by Jaydee Custom guitars. 

It features beautiful Thuya burl facings; front and back, an ebony fretboard, Bartolini 3 band preamp. The scale length is 34", string spacing is approximately 18mm.

It's a very light bass, especially for a 6 string. It's also extremely comfortable and very easy to play, having an extremely low string action.

It accommodates both single and double ball-end strings, currently it has a set of new Newtone light-gauge double ball-ends fitted.

It comes with a Hiscox guitar sized case.

I would prefer collection from Birmingham, though I can deliver. 

Christmas time price of £1500.00.

Cash in collection only, I’m no longer interested in any trades.

Bump, and lots more photos for you to drool over.

The knobs that you can see in a couple of the photos are some very nice wooden ones that I bought but never got around to putting on. 

It comes with a new Hiscox guitar case.

Wow!
This is a really nice bass. 34" scale? What string spacing? Weight? What preamp/controls? 
Do my eyes play me a trick, or is there an XLR connection on the bass?
Only sell, or open to trade?
//R

It's lovely isn't it? :)

The string spacing is about 18mm, but adjustable.

It weighs a little over 3kg; it's very light!

The preamp is a Bartolini NTMB with switchable mids; the controls are volume, high, mids, low, and balance. The little switch selects the mids as per this: https://bartolini.net/wp-content/uploads/Docs/NTMB_Wiring.pdf

No it's not an XRL, just a side mounted jack socket.

Out of curiosity, why is there a stacked knob if it's a volume, blend, bass, mid and treble configuration ?

It’s one of the original knobs, and was on when I bought it. The wooden ones are replacements, I just haven’t gotten around to changing them, I don’t have a screwdriver small enough either tbh 😁.
