PAYMENT PENDING: £1200 5 String Fretless Warwick Infinity SN 2008 Custom Shop
£2000

Recommended Posts

^^^^IGNORE THAT PRICE^^^^^^
PRICE DROP: £1200
A reluctant sale of one of the most beautiful basses I have owned:

Serial number:
D 143113 08
Article number:
0415050001BZZEBOWW  
produced:
-> 2008-04-08
Description:
CO Infinity SN TCS, 5-string
Natural Oil finish
Zebrano body
Ovangkol neck
Black hardware  
 
Made in Germany
 
Marks and dings are as pictured, the marks on the fingers board were harder to capture, however in it's previous ownership somebody has been doing some string bending, the playing is not effected at all and might I add this is a wonderfully well built and great sounding bass. I bought this from Bass Centre in 2010 and it has been played and loved.
 
The only issue it has is with the volume knob; when it is set to 0%(Full Anti-Clockwise Turn) it seems to think it is at about 40% volume, then it increases normally until it eventually hits 100%, as it continues to turn it then cuts out, then starts at 0% and finally finishing on the 40% at full turn clockwise.I've never had a knob do this however I imagine it needs a totally new push pull knob. Hopefully that made sense, the volume knob is still usable, it has even been gigged like this a few times. I might fix it however I am completely tied up in my work for the new charity I am launching relating to Musicians and Mental Health, really can't give too much away on that just yet, I will though throughout this forum when I can and where I am of course allowed. :D

Thank you for looking.

A massive price drop to £1200, can and will include the unpictured volume knob and will even through in a rugged mono m80 gig bag that has had fair use however is in full working order with all straps for an extra £50 just to to be safe when posting and so you have a decent case for the bass. 

Happy buying people, don't miss out on this beautiful bass!

Thank you, me too. In a pretty tight spot though and sometimes the collection has to give.

Thanks for the comment! :)

Would love for somebody to beat the bid on my eBay, just been seen off something chronic with eBay fees for this bass and others which never sold and the whole reason for selling these was for financial difficulty and my charity, I am devastated. Apparently an easy trap to fall into, with no sale and a £250 fee. Hard lesson learnt. 

This sale is open for me until the time stated above in the title, feel free to take a bid right here. eBay will not be taking this sale if it sales elsewhere and I paid good money for a place here. 

Big bass love!

I'm not sure I understand the above... eBay doesn't charge you if the item doesn't sell, you're then free to relist it for free. Why are you getting charged if it doesn't sell?

Hello, to be honest it was pretty difficult to understand myself even after a lengthy conversation on the phone to somebody from eBay. Apparently due to having a reserve price and a buy it now which never sold on multiple listing I am charged a fee for having it listed with those add ons rather than it just being at auction without them. I had no idea and maybe it was a failure to read some small print when I was in a rush to put it up. Either way £250 later, I am not that impressed. Lesson learnt I suppose.

Ahhh man, me too, honestly. I would be keeping it if I was richer too. *just going to sob in the corner for a while*.

Currently the payment is pending to some lucky guy over in the States OH, Cleveland. Damn I wasn't hoping to send it so far.

Listed with free postage too... man that's a risk! Personally, I use the eBay international shipping programme, usually I charge £18 to ship a bass, if it goes outside the UK you just send the bass to the eBay shipping hub in the UK then they send it on for you at no extra cost to the seller. They cover insurance once it's in their hands too. eBay can be a bit of a fee minefield, but if you navigate it well then you can avoid unforeseen charges etc.

Corr blimey, wish I had known that. I really struggled to make sense of the shipping fees and ways to do it through ebay when we were putting the listing up. It have so many different options and we just didn't know what to do! Thats mental, so there is essentially no extra charge to ship it abroad if it goes to the eBay shipping hub? Mental aha. 

I appreciate the insight, if only I'd known sooner. Such a shame to rush a sale of a bass I never wanted to really sell, never mind life goes on and there are many other basses in the world. I'll be glad when this poop storm is over.

The buyer see the cost of postage as per the cost eBay will charge to ship it to them. So if the buyer is in the US they'd probably see postage come in at $100 or so, if in Europe say €45 or so. If the buyer is in the UK, then they just pay your advertised rate. eBay works out the postage dependant of where the buyer is and displays it accordingly. Quite clever really.

I like that! I do not like how awfully clunky and tricky eBay has become though. I find the whole interface very difficult to navigate and sometimes understand when it comes to the finer detailed options that can trip you up. 

Every day is a school day aye?

Try listing via the app on your phone, it's a paired down version, much easier to use! :)

Funnily enough I am trying to do this right now. On here it is only saying eBay will cover up to £50 on a £400 pound item, I see no option for insurance on there either or am I missing or not understanding something?

      Price drop to £1850 - grab a bargain.
      I bought this last year from Goldbass via The Gallery. I really hoped my fat little fingers would get on with the beautifully shallow neck profile but sadly I am not getting the best from it.
      Martin dates it at early 2000's and it is in amazing condition for a 15+ year old bass. One very small dent on the bottom of the front face - photo attached. Other than that it is immaculate.
      Incredible build quality. Martin and John have an enviable ( and justified ) reputation and this one is a beaut.
      Specs:
      Madrone Burl front and back, and matching peghead. 
      Ash wings
      Flame maple / Wenge 7 piece neck
      Ebony board lined with Mahogany ( very subtle ), blue LED's on the fret lines
      Bartolini MM pup with series / parallel switch
      ABM piezo bridge with piezo preamp ( internal controls ) to balance output with mag pup - set and forget.
      Schack 18v preamp with internal dips for BMT centres / boost, volume and blend. Tone controls work on both mag and piezo.
      Gotoh tuners, dunlop strap locks. Strung with Daddario chromes.
      Weight on my scales just over 8lbs
      Hiscox hard case.
      Let me know if you need any more info.
      Would trade for a Rob Allen 4 string fretless or other quality 4 string fretless - Sei, GB, Shuker, ACG, Sadowsky, Lull etc
      Thanks for looking.

      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.

      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.
