Might also except a trade for an amp and cash. 

Hit me with any Bass or Amp for a trade deal. 

If the bass does not sell by the end of November I will have to withdraw it because of my house move to Devon.

      Hi Folks 
      So, this really, really is a feeler, but as I said in another for sale thread, I have my eye on something else, so am putting this beautiful example of a Fender Roscoe Beck 5 String & OHSC for sale. 
      I'm looking for £SOLD or very near offer for this beautiful Fender signature series bass, which many have described as the best Fender 5 string bass ever made. 
      The bass is in superb condition and has one ding on the underside of the body which hopefully can be seen in the photos. 
      A completely passive bass, it has two double wound Bill Lawrence pick-ups that offer you series/parallel/single configuration for each pick-up , offering you a plethora of sounds/tones from standard Jazz Bass to the most modern Humbucker sounds. It's perhaps a little bit darker tonally than a standard Jazz bass, but with stainless steel round wounds, this bass works with any genre of music and any type of band.
      Here's a great thread about the RBV bass on TalkBass: 
      https://www.talkbass.com/threads/roscoe-beck-bass-v-5-string.38034/?amp=1012489606
      And here are some YouTube links:
       
       
       
       
      The bass is currently strung and set up by mecto my taste, which means it has quite a high action and heavier gauge Carvin strings, so it would definitely benefit from a professional set up.. On that point and just to clarify, the truss rod is working perfectly so that won't be a problem.
      As ever, I'd prefer to sell this to someone who could come and try it out in person here in Littlehampton West Sussex first however, I am prepared to ship it at buyer's expense by insured courier service. 
      If you've any questions, please PM me or ask away here and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.
      I am away in Birmingham from tomorrow afternoon for 3 days , so please bear in mind that I may not be able to answer certain questions until I get back.
      Advertised elsewhere btw, and I reserve the right to change my mind as I really do love the RBVs that I've had over the last 12 years... but that dreaded GAS does come along to fry the common sense circuitry in my brain from time to time.. 
      Thanks for looking as ever 😊

      Hi Folks, 
      This is a bit of a feeler really as I have my eye on something else.. 
      So, this is - as far as I can tell from the serial number - a Made in Japan Fender Precision bass, circa 1991/2.
      I'm looking for £750 or very near offer for this beauty. 
      It sounds and looks great, has a beautiful Ash body and a slim, almost Jazz like maple neck and is in brilliant condition for a 27 year old bass.
      It's everything a 70s P Bass should be IMHO ! 😊
      Full disclosure ; there's one tiny ding on the neck which I'll try to photograph tomorrow when there's hopefully some decent light..
      It has been set up professionally and is currently strung with a set of Rotosound steels.  Comes with a functional hard case. 
      As ever, I'd prefer to sell this to someone who could come and try it out in person here in Littlehampton West Sussex first however, I am prepared to ship it at buyer's expense by insured courier service. 
      If you've any questions, please PM me or ask away here and I'll try to get back to you ASAP.
      I am away in Birmingham from tomorrow afternoon for 3 days , so please bear in mind that I may not be able to answer certain questions..

      Up for sale is my beloved Fender Roadworn P in Fiesta Red with Maple board. Currently wearing TI Flats. The pickups in these are really good and as such, the bass sounds great. I’ve had a few P’s in my time and this is the best I’ve had. Really nice condition.
      Selling as I only play my Sadowsky at the moment and an impending vehicle purchase means I need to let this go.
       
      Nut 1.8”
      Weight 3.8kg
      No problem posting as long as you sort and finance it. I have the box my Sadowsky came in and will come with a serviceable Fender gig bag.

      Sensible offers considered.
