Nightingale Bass 4 String bass guitar, Custom British built bass for mass production money £875

kidlington Oxfordshire

Recommended Posts

This is one awesome bass.

So the story on this one, the previous owner found and purchased an unfinished nightingale with one pickup.

He went to Bernier Goodfellow at GB basses and had the bass finished and a new old stock nightingale pickup fitted and an agular opb3 preamp fitted.

This made sense as Bernie was a partner in the nightingale basses enterprise making these basses by hand.

Then onto the paint shop for one of the best paint finishes i have ever seen, totally flawless.

She is light with a fantastic sound and a really lovely snake wood fret board.

To look at you would think she was made yesterday.

This is one great bass but i always go back to my status series 3 as i am a creature of habit.

Would consider trades or partial trades with cash my way, however cash is king.

Nice looking bass - surprised there hasn't been more interest.

Never heard of the bass, but I will be in Kidlington tomorrow! Sadly, I am a bit short of spare money at the moment.

I'm bringing my wife over (we live near Witney) to have her nails done, so I'll be a loose end for a while between 11.00 and 14.00 (no idea why it takes so long!).

Kidlington's off today, her beautician just called to cancel, she's unwell. 

GLWTS, looks like a real bargain, but I've spent far too much in the last couple of months (sadly none of it on musical gear).

Will do - but I am trying not to place too much temptation in front of myself at the moment! Not that that's ever worked before.

      Bass made in 2007 
      upgraded with Emg active pickup and Emg wiring (vol, tone for each pickup) 
      the MM pickup is switchable to single coils.
      body is made of ash and maple figured top.. ovangkol neck and wenge fingerboard.
      the bass sound great and the playability is stunning.
      this is a player bass with a lot of dings made by the owner before me, but nothing affect the sound and playability.
      More pics on request

      This is going to break my heart but something I want just a little more has come up.
      This is my beautiful Status Empathy 5 String, made in 1999.
      In superb condition except a small line in the lacquer from the neck pickup screw upwards as seen in the pics. It's not a deep crack and I have polished most of it out.
      Wafer thin action after a recent set up with Rob @ Status and sounds utterly incredible. 2 new battery boxes fitted.
      **** EDIT: Apologies people, spacing at bridge is dead on 15mm between strings ****
      Ideally pickup in Sussex.
      I'll let the pictures do the talking.
      NO TRADES please

      More pics AYMBA, before the Rockbass thing, Warwick produced these entry-level passive Streamers in Germany. This one is the 5-string, 2-pickup model, built in September 2000. The body is carolena (pine, apparently) and the neck is ovangkol. Natural oil finish and one-piece bridge. Sounds very nice too, though the output seems a bit quieter than most basses -- I understand that's down to the pots used on this model, but haven't got around to replacing them. Proper solid chunky wood, hence 4.2kg / 9.26lb. Comes in a Warwick gig bag ('proudly made with RokTex©'). Some wear and tear to the body if you look closely. Strung low E to high C.
      Sorry, no overseas postage. Sensible offers entertained. Not keen to post, but might.
