Ian Hill Spector 4 ....Sold... Bring on the padlock. Thanks mod'
£1250
Devon

Recommended Posts

Hello you charming peeps :party: 

I finally won big on a scratchy and got the £20 to become a basschat marketplace member and all-round supporter of the “low end"... I've even got £10 left over to restock those cans o' beans that's been dwindling in the cupboard. 

All-in-all a great week!! :sun_bespectacled:

 

I'm parting ways with a few of my children (by children I mean bass guitars, if I had children then I would be selling those first)

Up for sale here is a near mint Spector Euro 4 LX Ian Hill Signature Custom Bass.  Ian Hill is the hairy string thumper from Judas Priest...

It's a 4 string with 24 frets, mother of pearl crown inlays and a rosewood fingerboard.

3 piece American maple through neck design with graphite rods for added strength 💪

Scale length is 34", width at nut 1.64"

This is a luxury Spector with a slightly thinner and faster neck than the standard 4lx.

Spector's Tone Pump active onboard circuitry is also present with +18db boost.  

Controls are; bridge volume, neck volume, treble, bass.

Wood is USA Maple and European Alder. Gloss Black Finished.

The Ian Hill Spector has lovely gold hardware (I don't think it's real gold...:scratch_one-s_head:)

A zinc brass alloy locking Spector bridge with string spacing at bridge of .75"

You also got the premium EMG P neck pickup and EMG J bridge pickup.

This little number weighs in at around 3.9kg.

Fantastic all-round condition, slight tarnish on the brass bridge but certainly not offensive.

Please enjoy the photos of my garden below... Oh, and the beautiful instrument as well...

If you lovely folks have any questions (mainly regarding the Bass) then fire away...

Selling for £1250 for y'all beautiful people, I can and will post but that'll cost you extra... Collection or meet part way for fuel cost also an option.

Please PM with all offers, thank you!! Rules people, rules!!!  

Also comes with a heavy duty hard case to contain all it's Raw-Rock-Power!!

I love it when bc'ers give their insight &  personal experiences/thoughts on particular bass guitars and gear etc...

...makes it a dang sight harder to let anything go though... :facepalm:

Thanks for the kind words, Cetera, the IH model really is something special...😉

Absolutely lovely!

My Euro 5LX has been the 'revelation' bass for me in 2019 and I'm almost tempted to go back to a 4 string just to get this!

I was just shuffling through the many lovely instruments for sale here at Basschat and, oh look, what's this?!.. 

 

A Ian Hill Custom Spector Euro LX with EMG electronics and active tone pump circuitry?!! 

My, my... Surely the seller can't be asking a mere £1250 for that finely crafted instrument...  Madness, I say.

Looks like it'll deliver the goods 😼👍

My dear friend, this instrument doesn't just deliver the goods, it will join you in taking the goods and subsequently throwing a 72 week long party where you and the instrument will be adorned and worshipped like that of the Gods...

I hear that Ian Hill sold his soul to Spector and they placed a little bit of it in each one of his custom series XL's to give it an endless supply of “ROCK!!!" (Don't quote me on that though...)

      A set of 4 string p/J pickups taken from my now departed Mexican precision deluxe (2011 model if memory serves me correctly).
      Good condition and fully working last time they were installed and played. Been sat in the parts box for a while so time to sell.
      No idea on price, so let's say £30 or PM me to haggle.
      Happy to post

      PRICE DROP!! - Was £350, £325, £300, £275.... now just £250!

      VISA card needs paying back so here we have my fantastic original Japanese made (late 80's) Fernandes Ltd Edition PJ60 Bass in eye-catching bold red.
      Basswood body
      Maple bolt-on neck
      Rosewood board
      Black hardware
      FGI active P/J pickups & preamp (like EMGs) for every tone you could possibly require!
      Vol/Bal/Treb/Bass controls
      Usual fantastic Japanese build quality. This is no entry level instrument - feels, plays & sounds great in any professional environment. A crazily good bass and an absolute bargain!!



      This instrument is in fantastic condition with just a few very light dings and plays beautifully. Very slim and playable neck and a wide tonal palette. It sounds hugely resonant unplugged (always a good sign!) and this is continued when plugging in!

      I'll be sad to see it go & only selling to clear some debt so not looking for any trades/offers. Bass is located in Guildford/Woking area and I can courier at buyers expense (prob approx £30-£40) or can meet in South East England for petrol. Payment by cash, bank transfer or Paypal (you pay all fees) only please.



      Please see my extensive positive feedback record for assurance of a smooth and honest transaction.

      2nd bass up.....
      Edit: Price drop  £500  I will be in the Manchester area early March
      A rather lovely precision lyte I acquired in a trade last week. As light as it is, I am just not going to use it at the minute and so it has made the sale list.
      It is as it came to me and would benefit from some new strings but they are good for now. It’s a black sparkle colour, hard to see in the pics but it’s very nice. It’s made in Japan with an “A” serial number which I believe denotes 85-86, if that’s right it’s in great condition.  All stock I believe and working as it should do with the p thump and jazz tones, both combined a lovely and warm. There’s a small scratch in the lacquer by the jack, this can’t be seen from the front. 
      Comes in a fender padded gig bag.
      Cash is king, but I may succumb to a trade offer.....
      Collection or meet is preferred, shipping may be possible.

      For sale  - my American Deluxe Precision in natural finish with maple fingerboard.
      P/J pickup configuration. 21 Fret. 3 band active EQ with Active/Passive switch. Weighing in at 9lbs.
      The bass dates to 2012, and is still in excellent condition with all original parts. There is one ding on the top edge of the body, which I only recently discovered by feel, and couldn't capture in a photograph.
      Looking for £950 £850!
      Price includes spare tort pickguard, original Fender hard case +candy, and two planet waves straps with strap locks (if you want them!).
      Inspired by a thread on this forum I recently considered converting this bass to passive, so will also throw in the custom pickguard I bought for this project. Both additional pickguards are from WD Music.
      Collection preferred, or buyer to arrange shipping (I am based in North Essex).
