In a moment of madness I purchased this variax 6 string off the bay, primarily because my line 6 floorboard has a variax socket so I had an interesting afternoon making odd noises and then it went back in its box.

It is Chinese made, early model, has a range of modelled guitar tones, using the cat 5 cable into a line 6 device gives you the most options and I will throw in cat 5 cable, it has the socket for one of the lockable cat 5 in a Xlr casing if you have one of those, I also have the adaptor box where you can have a psu providing power to the guitar using a stereo jack lead (not supplied). You can also put a 9v battery in the back of the guitar.

You can also have the snazzy red strap. There is a bit of a ding on the headstock, which was there when I got it. Prefer collection or 1/2 way meet. I will post at buyers expense/risk.

Open to trades.

I keep looking at this kind of thing and wonder about getting all Variax-y with something and making it make bass patches.

There is a whole variation community out on the interweb, of which I have no contact, but search a little and I’m sure somebody will point you in the right direction. Then you can buy this!!

Hit me with a trade idea.

Don’t really have anything other than odds and sods, but I’ll have a rummage and pm you?

      Color Translucent Blue
      Piezo Pickups in Solid Brass Bridge
      The piezo pickups used on the TRB models use individual bimorphous piezo elements for each string, all built into a specially designed bridge which is machined from solid brass.
      Figured Maple Body with Thru-neck Construction
      The TRB-series basses feature figured maple bodies that offer the requisite tone as well as outstanding visual appeal.
      Neck-thru Models
      Because piezo pickups directly pick up the resonance of the instrument body, the body itself must be made from the finest woods and designed to deliver rich, deep tone. The neck-thru design of theses basses affords the best possible foundation for this amazing sound.Finish is transparent blue turquoise.
      A lovely instrument ! I'm only really selling it as I don't have space for 3 basses plus guitars and this is by far the biggest I own.

      Pricedrop 3.100 € open for offers.
      13.08.2019 => New Fodera Nickel Strings, polished and waxed the instrument, feels like new 😉
      I sell this amazing bass because I always grab my Le Fay anyway. 
      The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
      The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
      Anyone who already knows and played Jerzy Drozd basses knows, anyway. Exchange offers are of interest, I look forward to offers and inquiries if interested by mail.
      Specs as follows.
      2006 Jerzy Drozd Obsession Excellency 6 Strings 35" Scale 24 Frets Etimoe Body Zebrawood Top 3 Piece Maple Neck 7 Screws Bolt-on Maple Neck Ebony Fretboard Matching Headstock Two pieces Jerzy Drozd Bridge Two Jerzy Drozd Single Coils Pickup Aguilar OBP-3 Preamp 18mm strings spacing, possible to up to 19mm or down to 16.5mm. 9mm at nut Ebony Nut Asymetrical D Neck Controls : Volume/Blend/Bass/Medium 400hz or 800hz/Treble Trussrod : One double-acting fully working Weight : 4.4kg Machine heads : Gotoh Controls Knobs : Wood, maple and Zebrawood.

      Hi all,
      Up for sale or trade is an Ibanez SR506E 6-String bass.
      Asking price £450.
      I recently bought this used from Bass Direct as I fancied trying a sixer. I really like it but I keep going back to my 4 string so this has to go.
      I'm sure you know the spec but...
      Neck type: 5pc Jatoba/Bubinga neck Body: Mahogany body Fretboard: Rosewood fretboard Frets: Medium frets Number of frets: 24 Bridge: Accu-cast bridge (16.5mm string spacing) Neck pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 neck pickup (Passive) Bridge pickup: Bartolini® MK-1 bridge pickup (Passive) Equaliser: 3-band eq with 2 way mid frequency switch It was made in 2014 and is in really superb condition. The neck is perfect and the frets are great. The body is basically unmarked apart from a bit of damage to the bottom edge as I've tried to show in the pictures. No effect on tone or feel of course. The electronics work perfectly. As mentioned I recently bought it from Bass Direct so it has just had a full clean and setup. I've installed a brand new set of D'Addario EXL170-6 Nickel Wound 32-130 strings so it's good to go.
      It's great to play. Obviously it isn't a high end boutique bass but for what it is it's really impressive. Very well put together and feels great under the hands.
      Happy to include the gig bag in the pictures (Warwick Leather Rockbag) in the deal and no problem to ship at the buyers expense.
      I am open to trades... definitely 4 string, ideally passive but active also considered.
      I'm particularly interested in perhaps trading for an old Japanese made Yamaha TRB4. Really interested to try a Cort Jeff Berlin Rithimic. Potentially interested in old Warwick Corvettes or Streamers.
      Anyway, thanks for reading. If you're interested in making a trade or sale offer please don't hesitate to get in touch.
      Best wishes

      Beautiful series 1 single cut, built for me so single owner and in immaculate condition. Specs as follows:
      33 scale
      18mm spacing at the bridge
      What I would describe as a shallow C profile - somewhere between and C and flat D
      Through neck
      Bartolini P4s
      Ash body, maple neck with purpleheart
      Walnut top, walnut back and control covers, walnut facings on front and rear of headstock (it is truly a work of art)
      Black hardware. Hipshot tuners, hipshot piezo bridge.
      East unipre. Controls are:
      Vol and balance on stack 1
      Mid freq and mid cut/boost stack 2
      Bass/Treble on stack 3 (pull for bright boost)
      Passive tone (pull for passive)
      Piezo vol, pull for mid-dark boost
      Each P4 has a three way coil tap for series, single coil and parallel
      Final switch is for the neck LEDs, off/side/front and side
      Set up by Martin last year and strung with Elixirs
      I have to say, it's a fabulous bass. It is a joy to behold and tremendous playability. The sale is reluctant as I have a strong degree of personal investment in the bass (not just the obvious financial) however I mainly play other basses and following some soul searching I think the time is right to move it on, I hope to a new and happy home.
      I'm happy to sell but frankly just as interested in trades. If the latter, or PX, then the following might be helpful:
      Only basses please - I'm sorted for amps and other stuff I'm sorted for Fender type basses so no Ps or Js please No 33s please, and would definitely prefer 18mm spacing but 19 is cool if the bass is comfy... Ideally looking for another 6

      Very sorry for my poor photography skills!
      Please let me know if you want more info or specific shots of the bass, I'm very happy to speak on the phone or vid call so you can get a proper look. The bass is in Norwich and you're welcome to check it out in person if that's viable for you.
      And please don't tell Martin....
