I've not seen one of these in a 5 string version. I played a 4 string in a shop, a little while back, and was quite impressed...... 
Just wondering @TAzMilitello - what's the B string like? I know some 5 strings seem to suffer with a bit of a "wooly" B string
Does this bass combat that, with a higher tension B string? Hmmm, interested -as my 5er is starting to feel a bit heavy for my ageing shoulders....

Hi, As I told you in the private message, I have a Dingwall Z which has an excellent low-B string but also very soft, on the Mikro5 instead the string has a definite sound and with a more ready attack and also the tension is higher but really greater under my fingers. It is very comfortable and light. The bass sounds very good and it surprised me! 😉 I had bought it for transport by plane but I recently found a compact headless that I can travel with me!

Interesting. Is this at normal pitch or an octave up like the wingbass? Shame you’re  in Europe, I’m intrigued to try one of these now.

From the string gauge I’d say normal pitch

Hi, no, it's a standard 5 string bass from the low B to the G string, only short scale (28.6"), it has an excellent fifth string, defined and with an excellent attack, only the elasticity of the strings is slightly more rigid to the touch but very comfortable!

Thanks for the reply. How do you find the super short scale across the fretboard?

Are the strings specific to this bass or simply in that length?

Hi! The strings were made both as an ideal custom gauge and as a length.
The bass is very comfortable and fast compared to a standard scale, but you have to get used to it for a few minutes. But after you fly 😂

I have a 4 string Mikro and with the right gauge and scale length of strings on board, it’s a great budget bass. It’s also super light so makes a long rehearsal or gig a breeze. The neck profile widens out as you climb the neck so plenty room for fingers. The stock pups aren’t bad either. I have been tempted to pick up another as a fretless project 😎

Undoubtedly it's a very good 5 string although cheap, but it's really comfortable and it has a very defined Low-B string and a sound that marks every single note. You can do a concert without any problem! Personally, I noticed a better quality on the 5 strings Mikro and on the new satin-finished brown version, compared to the first mikro 4 strings I had in my hands.

      Now £3000.00
       
      Hello all!
      This is a feeler for the sale my awesome condition 1973 / 74 Fender Jazz bass in Sunburst.
      Its RW board, block inlays and bound.
      Photos are here in my photobucket album - 
      http://s1341.photobucket.com/user/bassintheface/library/Fender Jazz Bass 1973 - 1974
      It's in really excellent condition with only a couple of minor chips which I've tried to clearly show on the pics.
      The serial number on the neck plate is 509063 which is 1973 / 1974 which puts it as one of the last 4 bolt neck versions out of Fullerton before they went to the bullet truss rod and 3 bolt neck in 1974 / 75.
      The CTS pot codes date the bass to 5th Week 1974 - Jan / Feb (1377405) so the feedback on the age was that it was likely put together very late 1973 or very early 1974 - as you know with Fender around this time, its a combination of date stamps that help you get an age of an instrument.
      It comes with a generic hardcase and re issue versions of the pickup cover and ashtray from a USA 70's reissue.
      I will get neck end photos and pickup photos - from memory, you can only see a stamp on the bridge pickup now since the rewind of the neck pick up - its 5 years or so since Matt had it open, so will check  his photos and hopefully  add to the photobucket album above - if not, I'll have to get it opened up.
      I bought it from a friend around 5 or 6 years ago and the story was (note that this is completely unsubstantiated) that it belonged to Andy Scott of the Sweet and was used for recording /demos and never gigged, hence the condition. I really don't know if this is true and no one will ever know, but Andy Scott is from my hometown of Wrexham so it is plausible.
      The bass had been unplayed for a number of years prior to my purchase and upon getting it, the neck pickup didn't work and the elecs were intermittent and crackly.
      I swiftly sent it over to the very excellent Matthew John Bascetta in Chester - http://www.mjbluthier.co.uk/
      for a full clean, pro set up and a rewind of the neck pick up - Matt is also the guy behind the excellent 'House of Tone' pickups - https://www.houseoftonepickups.com/
      and he did a full rewind using period correct wire and hand winding, inc wax potting - you can see him at work below.
      It now plays beautifully and sounds, IMO awesome!  
      Feel free to ask any questions - I'd just appreciate PM's with an expression of interest initially as I really don't want to sell it being honest, but it lives at home (non smoking household) and  don't gig it our of fear of damaging it.
      You won't find many in this condition.
      No trades, viewing welcome.
      Cash on collection or bacs.
      I don't want to post this out of fear of it being damaged!

      Please note that the white marks on the pictures are reflections and not scratches!
      Up for sale or trade - see below for trade options - is my used Sandberg TT4 Bass guitar. I bought this new from Bass direct in 2015 and have been the sole owner in that time.
      The bass is one of the last Fender shaped ones made by Sandberg, it is passive with volume, pickup blend and tone controls and is finished in a stunning red colour with black hardware including lightweight machine heads. The fretboard is ebony with white block inlays (I've no idea if these are Mother of Pearl or not!). The pickups, I believe, are Hausell's which offer a huge punchy sound, kind of like a cross between a Jazz and precision bass on steroids! 
      The bass is in excellent condition, the only marks I can see are a small <1mm nick to the end of the headstock and a ding on the back of the body around 3mm long that has unfortunately gone down to the wood.
      Weight is 4.1 Kg, which is exactly 9 lbs in old money. The nut width is 38 mm. 
      The only trades that I'm interested in are short scales of around 28 to 30" ish. Something like a 30.75" Warwick Corvette or a Fender Mustang Performer would be perfect but let me know what you have - as long as it's no more than around 30". I've a damaged nerve in my left had meaning that I can no longer play 34" scale basses for any length of time before getting fatigued.
      Demos are welcome at my home near Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.
      Collection is preferred from near Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.
      However I can post at the buyers cost and risk.

      Hello!
      Selling a Yamaha 434m Bass purchased a year ago due to not seeing much use. The condition is like new and it plays great.
      Collection in London is preferred, although will consider shipping at buyer's expense. Pictures coming soon.
      Other than the standard BB434 specs, it features a few upgrades:
      - EMG GZR (Geezer Butler sig) passive pickups
      - Hipshot Lightweight A-Style Bridge
      - Hipshot string retainer
      - Hipshot Black KNobs
      - Yamaha Music London Light Gigbag
      Here are the standard specs:
      Featuring a six-bolt miter neck joint, the BB400 series continues the legacy of superb sound and playability of the renowned BB series.
      Solid Alder Body 6-Bolt Miter Neck Joint 5-piece Neck Lightweight Open Gear Tuners
