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.
So, from the majority of my encounters meeting and conversing with other musicians, I have found that the Bass Guitar tends to attract the more palatable and all-round pleasant musical artists among us...
Case & Point; All you lovey BC'ers
I envisage the Bass & Rhythm of Music as it's Heart & Soul and it would appear that most Bass players have an abundance of “heart & soul", hence why they're great Bass players.
A good Bassist will always compliment the song as opposed to their ego; knowing when to provide subtle rhythm accompaniment and when to (humbly) upstage the lead guitarist.
My point being that most Bass players are within their element and most content when playing for the love of music rather than for recognition.
Which brings me to the subject matter of Bass players that can't help but be in the “limelight"... i.e. Lead Singers who play Bass...
Now, there are numerous “front-persons"/“lead singers" who are flying the flag for all us “low-enders", some famous, some not so famous and some, well let's just say in a league of their own...
Which Singer/Bassist has inspired, amazed or just down-right annoyed you?...
The obvious ones might not be so obvious to some and likewise, the obscure ones might not be as unheard of as you'd first think...
So let's here from you fine BC'ers on your favourite, not so favourite or completely unknown Lead Singers who play Bass...
It should go without saying that should any of you gorgeous BC'ers be holding it up for the Bass/Singer front, let it be known and wave your flag proud! Would be mighty impressive to see the talent contained amidst this beautiful Bass Forum...

Gonna start this one off with the late, great Peter Steele of Type O Negative, as I'm just sooo “Brooding Goth"!!
You might know of him, you might not...
Let's here what you got...

(Geez!! That Bass gotta be heavy!!! Needing a chain strap an' all...)
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.

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.
