Overall seems in good playing condition. The seller could not tell me the year but I suspect it's one of MK's earlier builds due to the position of the logo. He claims it is a Studio passive,

There are some 'intonation' stickers on the side of the fingerboard which can be easily peeled off.

Key issue is the nut: I bought the bass secondhand from Reverb, and it arrived with a cardboard shim behind the nut.

It seems stable, and I've not had any problems with it - but best to be aware of it upfront!

Piezo bridge and tuning board:

Neck is pear wood. FIngerboard
is ebony and in very good condition:

Retractable endpost works fine but is scratched and has some rust:

The bag fits the bass, endpost, tripod. But note that the pouch nearest the main bag has come loose and is hence open all the time. The main bag itself (for the bass) zips fine.

Reason for sale: having just started electric lessons, I really need to focus on electric bass and not upright! I have enjoyed playing this but have no band where it would fit at the moment.

Collection: Tonbridge, Kent, 15 mins J5 M25. I may be able to courier in UK, but I strongly recommend a try out as I'm no EUB expert  and want to be sure you're happy with it.

Cheers!

Kevin

That’s a real shame about the nut. It looks as if the original nut fitted has been removed (badly). It should be a simple fix for a good luthier. I have one of the jazz models and it’s wonderful.

Thanks, that's good to know! As it's my first EUB I wasn't sure exactly how much of a problem it is. Certainly seems to operate at home with the nut as it is but I agree any prospective purchaser would want the nut fixed in the long run. Lovely tone and playability :)
