For sale my Bogart Sport 5 Headless Bass. Made in Germany.

- - 34” scale graphite neck

- - John East Preamp with Passive Tone and Concentric Mids
- - Bartolini pickups
- - Adjustable string spacing, currently 17.5 mm (the narrowest)
I’d prefer a straight sale, but I’d also consider trade / PX for a 4 string (cash either way).
Can be collected from Hemel Hempstead. Shipping to Europe can be arranged.
This one was a compulsive purchase at the time, but I sadly definitely don't have the time anymore to get serious with my bass playing so I prefer to let her go to someone who will give her the attention she deserves instead of seeing her collecting dust in her flightcase.
It's a second generation 1987 Arpege (full carbon fiber neck, neck-through construction)
The electronic has been upgraded (no modifications made to the body so far as I can tell) by the first owner with a John East uni-pre 5 knobs preamp (18V) - the original one is included but untested.
Very good state for her age, no real big dings/scratches but 3-4 very little finish wear/bubbles (not easy to get them on pictures but I tried my best to get them all)
Sold with a hard fligthcase (not original)
Visible in Lille and you're obviously welcome to try it but I can ship it too (shared shipping fees)
Thinning down the herd, so selling the basses I don't use.
FOR SALE ONLY.
Quite rare STATUS Electro 4 lined fretless with bridge pickup added by SP Custom.
The specifications :
34 inches scale.
24 positions, original lined fretless (no front dots).
1.5 mm action under the G string up to 2 mm under the E string.
18 mm strings spacing at the Status Electro bridge.
11 mm at the graphite nut.
1 double action truss rod.
4 Gotoh tuners.
Woven graphite neck with black phenolic fingerboard.
1 Status Hyperactive humbucker in neck position + 1 SP Custom Smokey HBass Classic humbucker close to the bridge (very similar sound wise to the Status Hyperactive) + 1 piezo pickup under the saddle in the bridge with magnetic pickups volume, piezo volume, treble cut/boost and bass cut/boost (like on all Electro series) plus a 3 positions toggle switch for the magnetic pickups (neck, both, bridge) instead of the EQ bypass.
18 Volts preamp with new batteries.
The body of the Electro 4 has a two-piece mahogany back with a red coloured veneer and book-matched rosewood top. Acoustic chambers are machined into the mahogany before the top is glued on : this allows the body to resonate and create a warmer, more "open" response. The graphite neck produces great sustain and clarity and results in an incredibly versatile instrument with great character.
Weight : 4.4 kilos.
Delivered in original Status/Hiscox hard case with all the accessories and original invoice.
Equipped with new Status round wound strings (45 ~105).
Satin finish for the body and thick glossy finish for the neck.
Made in April 2010.
Set up by Christophe LEDUC.
Official price today will be more than £2000 GBP if you can get one made.
Asking price is £1200 GBP due to the rarity and good very condition of this bass.
The bridge pickup has been installed by SP Custom, which is a well known French maker and the work is perfect (the idea was to add a lot of versatility and to employ the useless EQ bypass as a 3 positions toggle switch for the, now, 2 magnetic pickups).

im looking for a new 4 string bass, i currently use a cheap ibanez sr300 for my 2nd band which tune to C (thrash metal)
its fine for a cheap bass but i need an upgrade, i immediately ruled out anything p or jazz styling as i cant stand em, i want modern/erganomic lightweight
neck stability is a priority so carbon fiber necks are a bonus, i like to see what im doing so luminlay or even better leds are also a bonus.
my first thought was to wait for the upcoming Strandberg boden bass as it seems to tick all the right boxes (and i love my strandberg OS6, the endurneck is the future) however now i have set my budget it would be silly not to see what my other options are
i like the look of the Vigier Passion, played one years ago briefly and it left a lasting impression (although im not super keen on high gloss finishes)
a status s2 classic bolt on with wrap around leds comes in (almost - close enough) within budget, which i did not expect
and finally i just spotted the acg Krell, which looks the business, ive played an acg before but not the krell and i loved the feel, plus i get lots of custom options.
is there anything else out there to consider?
or any opinions on any of the above basses?
im looking at around £2500 max budget and would prefer to buy new.
