What descriptions do you think will be seen on a Basschat of the future? I shall begin. 

“Up for sale is my rare example of a pre-Disney Sadowsky...”

This vintage F class amp comes with original anti-float weights & fits in most credit card wallets of the era. I think I have the “heft” switch somewhere.

For sale, this beautiful 2018 Sandberg California with highly desirable Delano pickups for that classic Hifi tone! This one was made before their now abundant Super Light basses totally changed the bass world as we knew it, so has that reassuring heft you just don't get from today's floaters!

Welcome to the 513th South East Solar System Bass Bash... 

Our Hamster-Bot will relieve you of 10 credits at the holo-registration counter, whilst the Silverfoxnik-Bot will escort you to the S1m0n-Bot workshop on how to use your hi-speed, quantum particle drive Compressor.. 

Meanwhile, in the Jam Room, Paul our drummer-bot is somewhat delayed on the M25 Saturn's Ring ring Road.

For those who entered the Raffle back in the 21st Century, the winning tickets are still being called...

Used 2057 Fender P Bass in sunburst, a bass so good they’ve still never changed the design in 100 years.

Selling my 12 inch midi scale bass as I can’t get on with the 3lb weight in my 7 minute free improv indie gigs. Will trade for a 9 inch micro scale. Fingerboard must be concave, flat isn’t flat enough.

In the future people will have a less romantic, more pragmatic view of vintage instruments....

Knackered old 1960 Precision 

Requires complete refinish, new wiring and pots, new pickups and a refret.

Would make good project.

A small selection from the For Sale section:

"Pre Sports Direct Wal bass, in rare non-fluorescent finish.   No trades thanks"

"Vintage Trump era Fender Precision, actually made in Mexico (now of course part of Greater California)"

"1980's Peavey bass combo.   200 years old and the damn thing just won't wear out......"

"Plectrum, 100% genuine plastic (still legal for antique items).  Serious offers invited"

"Marshall nano bastard amp, faulty thought-control remote link.   Dodgy profanity filter, so it only plays f*cking loud.   Possibly good for metal"

Ultra rare Rickenbacker 4003 in Fireglo. One of only three known to exist and the only one still in playable condition. As we all know, John Hall copyrighted the design so hard that even Rickenbacker themselves were unable to legally manufacture them, and all traceable examples were destroyed.

Go as far as you like into the future, Fenders best sellers will still be Precision and Jazz basses.
