For sale is a rare Parker Fly 5. I bought this on a bit of a whim earlier in the year, but I'm finding the string spacing is a bit tight for my gorilla mitts, so it's not getting the use it deserves. A huge tonal range from magnetic and piezo pickups, specs are below. A few small dinks, shown in the photos, but in very good overall condition.
£1200 including UK shipping, contact me for shipping costs anywhere else. Collection from near Woking in Surrey welcome. Payment by cash on collection or bank transfer/Transferwise only please. Comes with Parker logo'd Levy's padded gig bag. Sorry, but I'm looking for a straight sale only, so no trade offers please.
Sitka Spruce laminated body with Quilted Maple front and back, the neck is Mahogany wrapped in carbon fibre, the headstock is Curly Maple. The fretboard is glass and carbon fibre with stainless steel frets. Fretboard radius 10"-15", 34" scale. 24 medium size, hardened stainless steel frets, lightweight aluminum locking Sperzel® tuners. GraphTech® nut, width: 1.8". Mono-Rail II bridge with individual Fishman piezo pickups, gain of each adjustable from within the control cavity. 17mm string spacing at the bridge. 2 Custom DiMarzio Ultra Jazz™ hum-cancelling pickups with active Fishman EQ. Controls are: master volume, magnetic pickup volume, magnetic pickup pan, stacked magnetic active 2 band EQ, stacked piezo tone and volume.
Price drop to £750!
I acquired this in an exchange on this veritable forum a short while ago as a 5 string experiment. Alas I have far too few fingers and it's not worked out for me - I'm sticking to 4 strings!! So, she's up for sale or an exchange for a 4 string G&L L2000 if anyone has one kicking around.
Year 2000 USA model and in fab condition (tiniest bit of buckle rash and a weeny dink on the headstock). Comes with new strings and original hard case. No issues and sounds amazing!
I'm based near Harlow/Bishop's Stortford and can travel to Herts/Kent/London for work so pretty flexible for delivery/demo
Pm me with questions please and thanks for looking 😊
(Harry, hope it's OK to use your pics - I'm in France at the moment!)
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.
Claas Leviathan Custom 4. Handmade in Germany Info: https://claasguitars.com
Neck and Fretboard: Flammed Maple.
SeymoreDuncan Musicman and Jazz Pickup.
Richter 3-Band EQ.
The bass is in good condition and the frets are like new.
The jazz pickup and preamp are modifications from the original bass.
She may look from the future and has all the modern tones but can also do old school really well.
Looking for £1600 £1500 , down from £1850 might consider other trades or partial trades (cash my way).
Hi . I've got a Fender American Deluxe Dimension V HH MN in Natural finish for sale. 750£ ono
It's a 5-string bass guitar with an ash body, maple neck with an asymmetrical C shape, maple fretboard, and a bone nut with a width of 44,5mm.
It has 21 frets, 34" scale (864mm), 2 humbucker pickups, Hi-mass bridge, 5 position blade switch, Active electronics,
It's shows signs of use, particulary in the neck (please see pictures). I believe the price reflects this. It sounds and plays very well and I've enjoyed playing it
This series of basses came out between 2013-2016 and has excellent reviews online. It was replaced with the Fender American Elite Dimension Bass V, which is basically the same instruments with a different name, very similar specs and a higher retail price!
It includes a gig bag, buyer covers shipping cost. Probably around 30£ in the UK. Located in South East London.
Prefer a sale but would consider trades for a 4 string bass of similar price/quality/condition. Let me know what you've got!
