[NOW SOLDthis awesome Steinberger XQ-5, made in USA. Ash body, famous Graphite composite neck.

The serial is TN-16069, model XQSTD5CB, cherry burst, dated June 2, 1996, before of Steinberger by "Music Yo" with Moses neck.

Completely original except for the preamp which is a Sadowsky equivalent with the possibility of Active/Passive mode, purchased separately, and a screw at the top of the bolt-on which has been replaced and has a double battery compartment.

This model with the Bartolini has a really good attack but a more balanced and softer sound than the brothers with Duncan or EMG.

Perfectly working. Original soft case included.

Built in the famous Tennessee plant, under the supervision of Gibson who had taken over the company and who continued to use the components of the previous Q5 models. Definitely more aesthetically pleasing (for this reason in fact Gibson had imposed a change of products line), and lighter as it has an ash body, with a very firm and balanced sound, with woods supplied directly by Gibson stocks, they are in fact even better balanced compared to the previous Q models that instead have a maple body.

Hi, yes my friend, in my opinion Bartolini PUs gives a softer and more balanced sound and touch than the EMGs one. 🍻

i bought it with the pre amp installed  and it's aguilar obp-3 , bass and mid's are the best ... treble not so good !

Ok! When I bought this Steinberger an Aguilar OBP-3 had been installed, but I give you the reason, the sound on the high was not great, I installed this Sadowsky preamp which I like best and it has the possibility of active/passive mode, on the frequencies it plays very well.

That would be a dream bass for me.

It's an awesome instrument and always very clean and dynamic in sound, unfortunately I already have 3 headless basses and 9 basses at home, unfortunately I am forced to "make space". If you need any information, don't hesitate to contact me...

These are the proper 5 string neck and bridge/ pickups. The L2/5s were 5 strings on an already tight four string neck.

      For sale a gorgeous Sadowsky 25th Anniversary made in USA. Koa top, ebony fingerboard. 4.00 kg (8.8 pounds, I think). Sadowsky preamp with VTC. It was a very limited edition of 25 units, this is the number 9.

      The bass has been thoroughly played and displays some cosmetic marks, that are visible on the pictures. The working condition of the instrument is 100% perfect and the tone is, of course, a dream.

      The price is 3300 euro/2900 pounds, with the original Sadowsky semihard case. The instrument is in Bilbao (Spain).

      Gibson SB-450 
      Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around. 
      Pictures:















      As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way. 
      Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should. 
      This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos! 
      The original hardcase is included. 
      Asking €1.100 (approx £975)
      The bass is located in the Netherlands. Shipping is not a problem. 
      Trades and partial trades are welcome. I am not really looking for a different bass (though maybe a stingray...). Though I might be interested in a ampeg V4b Amp, a nice fender bassman cab to match my 135, effects, and even a cool guitar (fender am std strat, old duo sonic or mustang)....

      Hi all,
      Now fully up for sale, Part-Ex options would be a Lakland Skyline DJ5 with cash my way too, possibly a Lakland 55-60, or maybe a Precision 4 string of some description.
      I love this Evolution, sounds awesome, light swamp ash body and looks great. It's a solid 9/10 for condition I'd say. A couple of small indentations, but nothing I'm able to photograph well. Stock, these basses come with Bartolini single-coils, however I've swapped those out for Bartolini dual coils that came direct from Rob Elrick.
      So spec is:
      35″ scale
      Swamp Ash Body
      8.5 Lbs (approx)
      Satin Matte Black Finish
      3-piece Quarter-Sawn Maple Neck
      Ebony Fretboard
      24 frets
      2-way adjustable truss rod
      Bartolini hum cancelling Dual-coil soapbar pickups (Made in the USA)
      Bartolini 3-band pre-amp w/3-way mid and active bypass (Made in the USA)
      Fully shielded control cavity
      Black Hipshot Ultra-light tuners
      Black Elrick bridge – by Hipshot (Made in the USA)
      Dunlop Dual Design strap buttons (Straplok compatible!) (Made in the USA)
       
      £1550 - I'll include a Fusion Urban gig bag in excellent condition!
      £1500 - No Case
      No way of shipping just at the moment, but happy to organise a socially distanced handover. As such, UK only for now.
