** NOW REDUCED TO £1,450.00 **

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

Hi Andy - I have just measured the spacing at the bridge and it is approx 18mm 15mm  across all strings.

Hope that helps!

Hi there -  I'm no Status expert but this is a 1999 model and has no trussrod as it has a graphite neck. The relief is set at the factory.

Hope that helps!

Hi there - no truss-rod in this model.

Just had a complete set up by Rob @ Status and the action is very very low with very little fret buzz.

Hi Gordon - the Status has a lot of interest and I have 2 people very interested. As the bass is original I’d say they are Status Hyperactive pickups. I hope this helps!

      Can anybody help!?
      Recently bought a new ibanez btb 1825. Just changed the strings to Elixir nanoweb long scale with extra long B string as it is a 35" scale bass and the regular long scale B is too short.
      Since changing strings there is now a noticeable difference between the B and the E string in terms of string spacing. It is narrower than the 19mm it should be. I know that as these two are the thickest strings, the distance between their edges will be smaller but their middle to middle distance should still be 19mm. It wasn't a problem with the strings that were supplied with the bass.
      Also the btb has five individual bridges and the B string bridge seems slightly squint- this may be deliberate as im sure these basses and computer manufactured. I'll try and attach two photos- one of the B bridge and one of the B and E distance.  Any help gratefully received!

      MIM Deluxe Series, active, 5 string, fretless bass.
      I am very sad to sell this absolute beauty. Plays like a dream, lovely neck and low action. Sounds the business. Has been professionally defretted and job done to a very high standard. In great condition, other than a hard to see crack in paint that runs around the body, have tried to capture in pictures.
      It is basically my ideal fretless, but sadly selling because I have compressed nerve problems in my shoulders, so can only go for very light basses nowadays, it's too heavy for me.
      That said I would consider trades or part trades for a lighter fretless, probably 4 string (due to lighter weight), so possibly a lighter 4 string Fender fretless, or I am quite interested in fretless Ibanez for example SRF700, other ideas considered

      10/12/19 - Price now £800
      Bought this off @bubinga5 here nearly three years ago. Lovely Bass & has been a joy to own.
      Has a Delano 2 band pre amp installed
      I changed the pickups to Delano JMVC 5 FE’s purchased new from Bass Direct (£200)
      Usual trademark extremely playable Maruszczyk neck
      The pickguard is a perfectly fitting SiMs Custom Shop replacement (the original was too scuffed for me)
      Has the latest version Schaller strap locks fitted
       Comes with a Maruszczyk burgundy leather strap
      Also comes with a Maruszczyk GBBS case (€90 when new) which is a tough, reinforced ‘soft’ case.
      No postage - either collection from Swindon or meet up somewhere up to a couple of hours away (which would actually cover a good area from midlands to south/south west). 
      One trade option - Ibanez SR Premium 5 string (with Nords or Aguilars & inc official Ibby SR case)

      Claas Leviathan Custom 4. Handmade in Germany Info: https://claasguitars.com
      Body:Ash
      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 £1250 , down from £1850 might consider other trades or partial trades (cash my way).
