NOW SOLD!! Limelight ‘73 P Bass

Recommended Posts

For Sale is my lovely 73 Limelight P bass- strung with La Bella flats, super slim ‘jazz’ neck, tortoise shell guard & upgraded with Aguilar pups - weight (bathroom scales) approx 9 pounds- this bass plays great & sounds just like a p bass should. It was bought from BC only last November from a great seller - but it simply never gets played as I tend to use my jazz basses for live work. Thanks for looking,

      Decided to sell my trusty Aguilar Octamizer octave pedal. I've had this pedal for several years and love all the sounds this thing can make. Unfortunately it's just not getting the use it deserves at the moment. 
      Condition is very good considering I've had it for some time now and it still works perfectly. Unfortunately the original box is long gone but I will make sure it is posted in a secure way.
      These look to be about £175 new so at £100 I think this is a great deal.
      UK postage included in price.

      The search for my P bass continues. Picked this up from DoubleOhStephan earlier this year. It is lovely but I'm looking for something slightly different I think, time to change.
      Stephan, hope you don't mind linking the original add as there is tons of info here:
      Since taking the bass I've corrected the bridge which was at a slight angle. The bass also has a white pickguard on it now but I can swap this out to tort if that was desirable.

      Currently strung with d'addario XLs, again these could be changed out to flats if you prefer (by me I mean, obviously you could also do it yourself later if you wanted to....)
      The eagle-eyed amongst you might say "hold on a minute abd, the price on the original add was 245 and yours is 300, whats that about? You're not being a very good BC citizen now are you?". You may say other things as well. £300 includes UK shipping and a case or gig big. If you want to collect, socially distanced of course, then happy to drop the price.
      That's it, ping me any questions that you may have lovelies

      Due to the Covid-19 situation and severe back problems (66% officially disabled because of it) plus right shoulder injury (non-operable capsulitis from which, after more than 3 years, I will never fully recover), I'm selling all my basses over 4 kilos and also the ones I'm not really using. I've also considerably lowered the price for a quick sale.
      WOOD & TRONICS Zoid 5 (to me their best design), naturally reliced : some pay huge amounts for this by 7ender, here it's free ! 
      NO TRADES !
      Asking price including shipping fully insured with tracking number to your place in these European countries (ask for other countries) : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (excluding French overseas departments and territories), Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom : £1599 GBP !!! A new one would cost you at least twice the asking price if you order it today with the same specifications and a few months to get it.
      Shipping to United Kingdom is, of course, possible, but with an extra huge customs fee (VAT + other taxes + courier fee), because U.K. is now outside EEC.
      In fully working condition, with some 13 years of use, but no abuse.
      Here are the specifications :
      Body : swamp ash wings with quilted maple top (and magnetic electronics lid)
      Neck : 3 pieces flamed maple through neck
      Fingerboard : rosewood with brass dots on the side and abalone on the fretboard
      Frets : 24 mandolin frets in perfect condition
      Headstock : 3 + 2 with matched quilted maple top
      Pickups : Nordstrand DC 5 with switch (chrome) working for the both pickups together in parallel / single coil / series (so you have no strange sounds when blending them)
      Preamp : Aguilar OBP-3
      Controls : volume, balance, bass, mid with one switch (chrome) for the 400 / 800 Hz frequency, treble
      Tuners : Hipshot Licensed
      Bridge : original two parts Wood & Tronics (ETS)
      Strings spacing at bridge : 19 mm
      Nut : brass
      Strings spacing at nut : 10 mm
      Knobs : original metal
      Scale : 34 inches
      Hardware colour : gold except the switches and the output jack, which are chrome
      Truss rod : one (real Fodera)
      Finish : light gloss
      Land of craftsmanship : Italy
      Serial number : unknown
      Year : 2007
      Weight : 3.905 kilos
      Action : from 1.5 mm under the G string to 2 mm under the B string at 12th fret (can go lower, but was perfect for me)
      Will come with an unbranded hard case.
      Non-smoking environment as usual.
      The bass has been fully set up professionally. It has been fitted with a new battery and a (now used) set of Fodera Nickel strings (45 - 65 - 85 -105 - 135).
      Early hollowed model à la Fodera, totally hand made (look at the lid), with that sweet and detailed sound typical from that period. Lots of wear and a few dings for this player, but don't be afraid, everything is working fine without any electronics scratches (except the usual Aguilar crack when switching the mids) and no hidden issues... The price asked reflects that condition.

      Here a video by Enrico PASINI himself to give you an idea of how a Zoid 5 can sound :

      And another one, made by Arnaud MORIN aka @tournesol74 (33 inches scale, ebony fretboard and different pickups, but the "sound" of the Zoid 5 is there) :
      What you see is what you get !
      Look at the photos taken at different angles to see the real condition, the wear and dents. Absolutely no real damage, only wear of time and playing !
