OK to help things along I'll throw in for free a nice immaculate Mono M80 gig bag with this bass.
Now that has got to be a bargain 😀
Only six months old,immaculate condition,fitted with new GHS pressurewound strings,very nice setup,plays beautifully.
It has had the wiring loom upgraded with top quality components including a switch craft jack socket(KiOgon loom) so sounds ace.
Comes with its Fender deluxe gig bag.
Price is firm so no lower offers please.
Collect from Harrogate.
No trades please.
This is a collectors' article, besides being the best P Bass I have ever owned, without a doubt. This bass is part of the history of an incredible musician, which played with names such as Steve Vai, Neil Zaza, Cyndi Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner, Dan Hartman and Billy Joel and even legendary Miles Davis.
I bought this bass from a New Jersey resident who bought it from the person who did TM's Estate sale. He visited TM's house and shipped this beauty to me in Brazil, where I used to live. Now, after moving to the UK, I am playing less and less, and it makes sense to sell this to a collector/actual player, which will take care of this legacy moving forward.
Originality-wise, electronics of this bass are entirely original except for one of the pots. The pickguard is broken next to the cable jack, typical for old P basses. The body was obviously stripped and covered with glossy finishing – probably it is not nitro, I'd say it is PU. One thing that dates the stripping is that there's a picture of TM with this bass dating back to early 70s from what it seems... so it's been like that for a while. And a funny fact, when I got the bass, the neckplate was flipped. I left it as TM knows what works better.
Everything else is clearly original, and I can back up originality after collecting old Fender basses for a few years.
Included on the sale:
- Covers (both pickup and bridge);
I will try to ship some of the memorabilia that was included in the original sale to whoever buys it. I left all of it in Brazil when I moved in as I had no intentions to sell it... if you're interested, leave me a message and I will send you more pictures.
Here's a new lockdown svid track, "Sink".
Pounding Precision (a parts build by me, played by John) and resonating Rickenbackers (played by me) abound...
Social distancing and minumum use of loo paper rules were carefully observed.
Hope you're being creative too...
Price drop to £850
An absolutely stunning example with matching headstock Maruszczyk Jake 5+ P/MM that is around 7lbs / 3.2Kg in weight,
Fitted with passive Delano MC5 HE/M2 and PC5 HE/M2 pickups and comes with a Hiscox hard case.
New D'Addario nickel rounds fitted but I can include some used DR Sunbeams if you'd prefer.
18mm string spacing at the bridge
Bought from the Gallery a few months ago (I've used their photo's as they are better than mine) and had Adrian at Maruszcyk paint the headstock the same colour as the body.
Couriers are still delivering at the moment, so posting isn’t an issue.
If you've ever wanted a lightweight 5 stringer that weighs so little that a 2 or 3 hour set leaves little to no impression on your ageing shoulders, then this is the bass to have
