Thanks for your kind words. It is indeed a wonderful bass. If I did not have the Warrior it would be staying. It plays and sounds so close to the Warrior it really shows what good value the Milan is. The Warrior retails at £6000.

Bump for a splendid Bass...

Thanks for the kind words. 

It is indeed a splendid bass. I'm really surprised it has not been sold at this crazy price. I now use a Warrior that cost around £5000 if ordered today and this Milan plays and sounds about 90% as good. If I didn't have the Warrior I would keep it. 

I'm not going to drop the price but would like to trade against any music or hifi gear.

Cracking price. The market is super tough unless you happen to be selling the exact bass someone is looking for. Surely at under £600 this will sell... if it were a 6er I'd have bought it already.

Hi Spyder, 

What's the string spacing at the bridge and the nut width on this? 

Cheers, 

Tobie

String spacing is 18mm and I will have to check on the nut later today. 

Regards.

It is indeed a cracking bass. The bass cost me nearly £1000 because I put a new kent Armstrong active eq in and added coil tap switches along with many other smaller upgrades and hardware replacement changes. 

The market is very tough at the moment.

      Selling my Corvette unlined Fretless 5. 
      Turns out I’m not as good at fretless playing as I imagined so this just isn’t getting used. A real shame but I have my eye on something else.

      Natural oil finish and carefully treated weekly with the Warwick wax. (Included in sale)
      Passive electronics with volume, pick-up blend and tone controls. I was very surprised by the variety of sounds that come out of those controls! MEC dynamic correction pups.
       
      Currently strung with Rotosound 45-130 flatwounds. 
      Weight is 6kg.

      **£700 **
       
      Absolutely torn doing this as completely in love with this bass, but as much as this bass is the sound in my head, I've had to accept that it's not the right sound for my band 😭
      Purchased from Rhysyjob last year in brand new condition (original sales post below). Bass is immaculate and comes with official Spector fitted hardcase (I purchased separately new from thomann for circa £150). Bass is just over 1 year old, has been gigged but never used in anger. 
      Would prefer local collection or drop off but will ship at buyers cost. Looking for £850 ono including hard case.

      Hi everyone, selling my Overwater Perception Pro Deluxe Custom 5 String with its Overwater/Hiscox Case.
       
      Manufactured 2007 Purchased by me in December 2010 5 String 24 Frets 9V Active Volume, Pickup Pan, Bass, Mid, Treble, Push/Pull High End Boost Bolt-On Neck Upgraded Overwater PreAmp (Fit By Overwater) Overwater/Hiscox Hardcase Selling Due To No Longer Playing Collection-Only, Cardiff, UK Strung Bb - Gb  
      As far as I can remember, the ‘custom’ in its name denotes it having a non-standard bridge to what was offered at the time of manufacture. In October 2015 I safely sent the bass to Chris May at Overwater for some love & attention and it was at that point in its life that its active preamp was upgraded to the newest model available at the time and a ramp between the pickups was also fit with the most matching wood Overwater were capable of providing. The bass also had a full service while it was with them.
      I do not have Facebook myself but if you were to head to overwater’s FB page you will see an image they uploaded while it was with them in the shop that verifies the date these upgrades were made by them.
      I have no altered the bass in any way myself and it is in remarkable condition. That said, it has been used to me in hundreds of professional environments therefore has the faintest of hairlines present on some of the body/neck but nothing that affects playability. I have always been careful to not let the bass come in contact with belt buckles/belt sanders and if it wasn’t in a hardcase it was always propped up safely on a stand. The gold hardware has began to reflect a slightly more silver/chrome finish due to my hands running over it so regularly.
       
      I have professionally used the bass with much love and care since I bought it and am only parting with it as I no longer have any yearning to be involved in the business. It seems an absolute crime to have this stunning instrument sat in its case doing absolutely nothing.
       
      The bass is for sale for £1050 including the case and I will have to insist on it being pick-up only from Cardiff. The only thing I can imagine being sadder than parting with the bass is for it to be damaged in transit. 
      I would also really like for someone to come and have a play of the bass rather than trying to pay me from overseas and have me deal with a third party here acting as a courier. This is only because it would allow too much room for miscommunication and I am not confident in my ability to safely package something so delicate for international shipping.
      Thanks for reading and I will do my best to reply to any queries asap!
