      5 String double bass extensively improved. Beautiful sound - great B string. 
      4/4 Unlabelled Possibly Hungarian?
      Very clear sound, recently fitted with new Pirastro Permanent strings (spiro B string).
      Easy to play with 104cm string stop and a low action at the nut. "Harp" style tail piece. 2 piece back and front. Adjustable bridge. 22.5cm lower bout ribs, LOB 114cm. Good straight grain, no buzzes, splits or cracks. Speaks well across all the neck in all registers. 
      Extensively modified by R Dawson and the Contrabass Shoppe in 2008 which included - top removed and re-graded, new bass bar, new maple neck, new finger board and new machine tuners. (details provided by T Houska - this work cost £3500).
      Recent service (Feb 2021), clean and setup by Martin Jones.
      Recently played as my main bass. 
      More details and photos can be supplied on request.

      Fender Jazz bass, Mexican 2016, 4 string. Maple neck with black block inlays and black bindings along fretboard. Natural finish. Great bass, sad to sell it but I'm married to my others and I'd prefer it was being played. Comes with hard case. First time seller on here so don't hesitate to let me know if you need some more info!

      Picked this up a couple of months back to have another try with five strings. Not sure what I was thinking because I struggle with four so in light of some recent purchases I  think I will move this on.
      The Good Points
      It's a good, solid 5 string bass which punches above it's weight. Body is Bubinga wood, fingerboard is Rosewood. The neck is super flat and really nice to play. Hardware and pickups are by Wilkinson. The four pots are Volume, Tone, Bass, and Pickup Blend.
      The Bad Points
      It has a few marks and dings (the previous owner toured Europe with it) but nothing major, just general, light, wear and tear.
      When I picked it up, it had a really low output, and the pickup blend pot was crackly when adjusted. On inspection, the battery had leaked and corroded the battery clip, so I replaced that and stuck in a new 9v which sorted the output issue. I haven't gotten around to fixing the pot yet. It may just need a squirt of cleaner, or it may need a replacement soldering in, both of which should be pretty simple and are reflected in the price.
      Price is £125. This does not include shipping but does include a crap Fender gig bag to carry it home in. Shipping could possibly be arranged. I have a box, and can upgrade to a better more padded gigbag, but this will push the price to £160.
      I would also consider a trade for a high end (Mono, Sadowsky) gig bag with money either way.
