FOR SALE [1600€, Euros] this awesome Steinberger XQ-5, made in USA. Ash body, famous Graphite composite neck.
The serial is TN-16069, model XQSTD5CB, cherry burst, dated June 2, 1996, before of Steinberger by "Music Yo" with Moses neck.
Completely original except for the preamp which is a Sadowsky equivalent with the possibility of Active/Passive mode, purchased separately, and a screw at the top of the bolt-on which has been replaced and has a double battery compartment.
This model with the Bartolini has a really good attack but a more balanced and softer sound than the brothers with Duncan or EMG.
Perfectly working. Original soft case included.
Built in the famous Tennessee plant, under the supervision of Gibson who had taken over the company and who continued to use the components of the previous Q5 models. Definitely more aesthetically pleasing (for this reason in fact Gibson had imposed a change of products line), and lighter as it has an ash body, with a very firm and balanced sound, with woods supplied directly by Gibson stocks, they are in fact even better balanced compared to the previous Q models that instead have a maple body.

Up for sale is my SKC Bogart Sport 5-string headless. I bought it on here early last year, and after using it on a string of festivals over the summer, liked it so much I had another one custom made for me by Stefan, and unfortunately I just can't justify keeping both.
It's in excellent condition, with no marks, chips or dings. These are seriously good basses, with great consistency and tonal range. It's currently fitted with D'Addario 40-125 nickels with a nice low action. Being headless, it sits on the knee or a strap beautifully, and at 3.4kg you hardly know you're wearing it.
Here are the specs:
34" scale, zero fret
Blackstone body in off-white satin finish
Carbon graphite satin finish woven neck
Bartolini J/MM pickups with single coil/parallel tap switch on bridge pickup
Noll TCM3 3-band preamp with active/passive push/pull on volume pot
It comes with a good quality gig bag.
£1195 including UK shipping. Please message me for a shipping quote to anywhere else. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades.
Selling my wonderful and MINT Modulus Quantum 6 with Buckeye Burl Top. It‘s a cracking bass but 17mm string spacing is too small for my fingers.
Graphite neck bolt-on,
Aguilar OBP-3 preamp
35 scale, 17 mm spacing at bridge
Low action, neck straight, sound has lots of attack, deep lows and crisp highs, sounds definitely ‚modern‘. Technically perfect.
Hi, I'm looking for a Status Kingbass 5 strings, preferably 32", 16,5mm (18mm max) and better if there is also the bendwell, but let me know, I value anyway!
I can also evaluate other productions (S2, S3 or Streamline), but preferably I look for that bass!
I'm located in Italy, maybe it needs a shipment.
Thanks, and big hugs.
Weight: 3.7 kg!!!

Superb Craftmanship and Sound
Patrice Vigier pioneered graphite neck construction in the 1970s and 80s, and after much research and fine tuning Vigier moved away from the colder and brittle sounding solid graphite necks to a composite of 90% wood and 10% graphite - this yields the same strength and rigidity famed on graphite necked instruments bu..
