CELINDER Custom 6 Michael Andersen model !


A real piece of history made in 1994, played a lot and with lot of wear and finish dings, but what a growl : you won't believe it...

This bass was sold for €5.000 Euros at the time, so a value close to €12.000 Euros nowadays, a Fodera before Smith. :shok:

PayPal payment (Friend payment or fee covered) or bank transfer (IBAN and BIC codes provided, so no fee).

In fully working condition.

Here are the specifications :

Scale : 36 inches.
Strings spacing at nut : 9 mm
Strings spacing at bridge : 19.5 mm (can go down to 18 mm)
Action : 2 mm under the B string at 12th fret (can go lower as it's had a frets differential dressing)
Strings : Fodera nickel
Tuners : Gotoh
Bridge : Gotoh / Celinder
Pickups : Celinder humbuckers (Armstrong according to some connoisseurs)
Electronics : GreenGrove first generation preamp with on the upper row : master volume (push-pull for active/passive), neck volume (push-pull for humbucker/single coil), bridge volume (push-pull for humbucker/single coil). On the lower row : treble boost and cut with center detent, bass boost and cut with center detent
Neck : 5 pieces bolt on (6 screws) flamed maple (3 pieces) with 1 cm amarante large strips (2 pieces)
Fretboard : ebony (5 mm thickness)
Dots : abalone on the side and fretboard
Frets : 24 (inox, so hard it’s almost impossible to wear)
Nut : brass
Trussrod : one
Body : mahogany + maple veneer + wenge veneer + flamed maple top
Headstock : matched flamed maple over a wenge veneer
Land of craftsmanship : Denmark
Weight : 5.3 kilograms


Very well balanced, even if it's on the heavy side, and totally original which is very rare, especially the GreenGrove first generation preamp.

Versatile bass that cuts through the mix and what a growl !!!

Will come with a semi-rigid case.

Non smoking environment as usual.

The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC (differential fret dressing done), the trussrod is fully working and the bass has a new battery as well as a new output jack.

What you see is what you get !

Look at the pictures to see the real condition : not pristine at all as it’s been used but not abused but fully working, all original and from 5/1/1994 !!!

Absolutely no damage only wear of time and playing.

Don't hesitate to ask for more.

You can deal with Jens in total confidence and, yes, this used to be one of my former bass.

Jens made a copy /paste of my old ad.
