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).

Here, a sound clip recorded with this very bass, except for the fretless intro and outro, by the same Vincent : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jezFSCAl3S_3Yl_dNcurxnARbRvVeAZ5/view

 

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.

 

Don't hesitate to ask for more.

Yes, Russ, this is the one that started all our countless deals...

But before being yours, it was belonging to @gioby1 the original owner. ;)

Indeed, and I traded my 9 string ACG for it!

(Which went from me to @gioby1 to @bipbip62 and then back to me again!) 

Entropy is a strict mistress! 😄

Glorious bass!

It's actually an awful bass... only worth £50, but as I'm just so very generous I'll offer £60! 😉

(It is a superb instrument, I've had 3 Aries 6 string basses and this was my favourite.)

If @gioby1 gets this bass back, perhaps I'll trade him my 9 string ACG for it again in a year or two! And then a year after that I'll meet Tony in Brussels again to trade it back to him! 

The cycle continues!

      OK to help things along I'll throw in for free a nice immaculate Mono M80 gig bag with this bass.
      Now that has got to be a bargain 😀 
      Only six months old,immaculate condition,fitted with new GHS pressurewound strings,very nice setup,plays beautifully.
      It has had the wiring loom upgraded with top quality components including a switch craft jack socket(KiOgon loom) so sounds ace.
      Comes with its Fender deluxe gig bag.
      Price is firm so no lower offers please.
      Collect from Harrogate.
      No trades please.

      This is a collectors' article, besides being the best P Bass I have ever owned, without a doubt. This bass is part of the history of an incredible musician, which played with names such as Steve Vai, Neil Zaza, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Dan Hartman and Billy Joel and even legendary Miles Davis.

      I bought this bass from a New Jersey resident who bought it from the person who did TM's Estate sale. He visited TM's house and shipped this beauty to me in Brazil, where I used to live. Now, after moving to the UK, I am playing less and less, and it makes sense to sell this to a collector/actual player, which will take care of this legacy moving forward.

      Originality-wise, electronics of this bass are entirely original except for one of the pots. The pickguard is broken next to the cable jack, typical for old P basses. The body was obviously stripped and covered with glossy finishing – probably it is not nitro, I'd say it is PU. One thing that dates the stripping is that there's a picture of TM with this bass dating back to early 70s from what it seems... so it's been like that for a while. And a funny fact, when I got the bass, the neckplate was flipped. I left it as TM knows what works better.

      Everything else is clearly original, and I can back up originality after collecting old Fender basses for a few years.

      Included on the sale:
      - Bass;
      - OHSC;
      - Covers (both pickup and bridge);

      I will try to ship some of the memorabilia that was included in the original sale to whoever buys it. I left all of it in Brazil when I moved in as I had no intentions to sell it... if you're interested, leave me a message and I will send you more pictures.

      Selling my Fender Stu Hamm Urge 1 Standard Bass. Picked this up last year but haven’t used it much. It’s in excellent condition. These were in production from 1993-1999. Its 32” medium scale and has a downsized body so it’s really easy to play and it’s very lightweight. 2 Jazz pickups and the controls are stacked volume/pickup pan and stacked treble and bass. 
      Comes with a heavy duty flight case or can ship in a smaller box with the neck removed if required.
      Specs:
      • Poplar Body
      • Maple Neck
      • Rosewood fingerboard
      • 24 frets
      • 32” scale
      • 7.3lbs
      • ‘Licensed by Schaller’ tuners
      I’m not looking for any trades.

      Fender CS 51 vintage custom p bass for sale only. No trades thanks. All case candy except lead. Hang tags, plectrums, strap, C.O.A all present. Weight around 9lb 1 oz. Bass is in excellent condition with just a couple of tiny indentations on the body from the metal covers ( I wish they would not fit these things!) New EB slinky coated strings fitted this week.  I will just stick with my old stingray for the odd time I get a chance to play at home. Any questions please ask. I have bought and sold a few times on Basschat ( sold my last CS precision to Walshy) . Collection from East Yorkshire or York.. I will take video and send it to the buyer before closing the case if it is couriered. Definitely no trades thanks. Big Price drop £2200.  
       
      Having looked at the Eurosender courier service on Basschat I will be happy to post fully insured and will pay the first £30 of the cost to help. Please let me know and I will get a quote. 
       
      I can send more photos or info if required. Dave
