FS: Precision Bass Warmoth/P-Retro/Dimarzio/Gotoh/Badass II ***SOLD**
£500

Recommended Posts

For sale is another of my quality bitsas, something of a necessity following the purchase of a Fender PBAC-100 recently (and the complete surprise that, having fallen in love with the East P-Retro a few years back, Fender were doing something very close to it, albeit without the mid-sweep, back in 1991!). So, this is a quality bass, albeit a no-name/no-brand instrument. To my mind the price reflects the no-name/no-brand issue and not the quality, but I guess I would say that. I may part this out as the components sold individually would probably fetch me about £200 more than the asking price for the bass, so please feel free to enquire. I could also sell the bass around £150 cheaper if supplied with a BBOT bridge and a passive Precision harness, replacing the Badass and P-Retro respectively. The bass as is weighs in at a respectable 4.3kgs. 

Parts

Body: No name lightly oiled alder (I think). Has Ferrari written in the neck pocket. I was going to spend some time rubbing it down and oiling it, I may still do if it doesn;t sell quickly! There's a couple of dinks in the wood, please see the photos. They're not major, but I know there are some perfectionists out there, so if thing like these worry you, please don't buy this bass 

Neck: Warmoth, figured rosewood board, lightly oiled, 43-44mm at nut, shallow profile, lovely fast player, especially if you like big necks. No dinks, just lovely

PUPs: Dimarzio Model P

Circuit: East P-Retro, now discontinued, one of the great Precision accessories! Charger will of course be included https://www.east-uk.com/index.php/bass/p-retro/p-retro.html

Bridge: Badass II, You know the score. 

Tuners: Gotoh Lollipops

Currently strung with some rather lovely old nylons that I will keep and will stick a set of either flats or rounds on as per buyer's preference. No trades please. I can courier and will split costs with buyer, or you can collect from Canterbury, Kent

Cheers

Chris

Weight ?

Widht at nut ?

Neck profile ?

 

Hi mate, I've added the details above, it's a shallow depth 43-44 mm width nut (I can get an accurate depth at the nut, will post a little later), weighs 4.3kg, perhaps a tad under. 

Cheers

Chris

another beauty 😛

Ha ha, thanks Dave, I love building decent quality basses, gives me a real sense of achievement when I put one together that just works, as this one does. Main problem for me is that I enjoy putting them together more than I do playing them these days :)

Yeah the colour combo is really doing it for me, especially with the all black pickup and nylon strings. And the photography is good which always helps!

I have done a couple of times, at least I've put together a few Fender-alike bitsas to the specification of the buyer, some feedback below :)

Not that he needs it, but here's some feedback for Mr.B. I picked up a beautiful Precision bass from Chris on Christmas Eve. I'd put my name down for it 2 or 3 weeks prior to pickup but living at opposite ends of the country, the transaction had to wait. During this period, I subjected Beedster to persistent badgering - seriously, I was so excited I just couldn't help myself - I was PM'ing him day and night, quizzing him about the guitar, maintenance, all that craic! anyway, Chris was a complete gent and put up with it. Right from the beginning of the sale, he was straight up about what he was selling and after explaining that i was a novice buyer, even suggested that this may not be the right buy for me - it's a custom build, may not be as easy to sell on, may not appreciate as well as a Fender yada yada yada... but alas, he didn't succeed in talking himself out of a sale. I've had the guitar a few weeks now and am chuffed to bits with it. This is feedback not only for Beedster the seller, but also Beedster the bass guitar craftsman. The Beedster Sig. P Mk.I rocks - it plays beautifully and the sound is as pure and honest as you'd want from any P. When he was re-assembling the guitar after wiring in the controls he gave me choice and advice about which pickup to have installed, which bridge and even what type of strings... in the end he gave me TWO sets - just to encourage me to try flats! A very generous and sound gesture. Yes yes, if you're planning to buy from Beedster, I'm sure it'll be a pleasant experience. So, there you go.. here's a link to the BassPorn thread for the forementioned P. Wollop!

I will start a thread in the bass section to keep it off here.

Looks like that might well be the case as I've interest from a few guys in a passive version, I'll let you know as soon as I do

Cheers

Bass is sold but P-Retro and Badass are still available, I think £125 is fair for the P-Retro and £60 for the bridge, I will post pics of each on this thread later today

Cheers
