Barefaced Super Midget - £450
No doubt that this cab has done a lot of work - but there's a reason for that! It's been used constantly throughout my university study and now into my professional life. I'm looking to switch to a Two 10, so if anyone fancies a trade of some kind let me know!
Unfortunately, it's taken all damage to its front grill and not much to the rest of the cabinet. However, it remains in perfect working order and will give you punch and volume that far belies its size - you can just keep feeding it power and it only gets better!
Collection from Maidenhead is preferred, but I drive all over the country for shows (literally) and accidental eBay bid collections 😅 So I'm sure we can work something out if you're not local.

The Šabić brothers, at the origin of the brand, are, for one, classical luthier and, for the other, electronics engineer. They manufacture instruments of excellent craftsmanship and with handpicked electronic components. Unfortunately, they stopped the production of their always unique and hand-made instruments to work for a brand-name Custom Shop three years ago ... This is, therefore, a unique instrument made to measure for an Italian bassist and I am the third owner. It is an ultra-versatile and super rare bass.
The new price in 2009 was around 4.500 Euros…
The bass has been fully set up professionally. It has two new batteries and has been fitted with a brand new set of LaBella Super Steps SS45CB strings (29 - 45 - 65 - 85 - 105 - 128).

What you see is what you get !
Look at the pictures taken under different lights to see the real condition : some few marks, especially close to the bottom strap pin and the usual light scratches, but nothing serious at all.
I am selling this beautiful Carl Thompson bass as it is not getting the playing time it needs or deserves.
Its build by Carl himself in the early 90s. it has an EMG pickup and active electronics. the neck is 36"
It has a rare wooden bridge and a rare "hook" shaped upper horn.
The neck is Padauk with Ebony frettboard. i think the top is charry and the wings are mahogany. i am not sure what the center block is.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or send me a private message.
Trade with other basses and guitars are possible.
The bass is located in Denmark.
Perfect conditions. Sounds and looks amazing. Quite rare. Made in Japan under license of Music Man (parts came from USA, only assembled in Japan) in the eighties.
No gig bag but I can provide one. Shipping included in UE.
