EMG 40TWX Pickup with all the accessories - £85 including shipping.
Bought but never installed and now surplus to requirements.
All details for this pickup can be found here: https://www.emgpickups.com/40twx.html
Summary: two pickups in one - single coil and humbucker. Comes with volume pull/push pot and active tone control. All wires and fixings included. Uses a 102mm wide housing. Will happily work on a four or five string bass as the pickups has rails rather than individual pole pieces. Was intended for a four string Cort and would have been a drop-in replacement.
ESP LTD B-405SM 5 string thru-neck bass for sale in excellent condition! Not to be confused with the lesser Indonesian B-205 model!
Made in Korea, these basses are amazing quality and value with a lot of features you would usually find in high end or custom shop basses. The bass has been well looked after and there are only a few slight dings (highlighted in the photos) in the other wise perfect satin finish. Very little sign of playing wear on the bass...the plastic is still on the control and battery plates and is fitted with a new 9V battery. The bass has recently been set-up with a low action, brand new stainless steel round wound strings along with a fret polish and it feels amazing to play. The B string sounds very full and tight, even further up the fret board and overall the bass is very resonant acoustically which is well represented by the basses electronics.
The bass features a swamp ash body with a beautiful, carved spalted maple top with a nice flame running through it. The neck-through body construction features a 5 piece maple/walnut neck with a 24 fret rosewood fingerboard with abalone dot inlays and 12th fret block inlay. The head stock also has a matched piece of spalted maple.
The hardware is exceptional quality, finished in black nickel. The machine heads are made by Grover and are incredibly smooth and precise. The bridge is an ESP BB-605 with string-thru body or top loading functionality.
The bass is loaded with two EMG pickups (EMG 40P5 Neck/EMG 40DC Bridge) and an EMG B-64 3 band EQ (boost and cut) with a master volume control and pickup blend control. With the preamp set flat the bass sounds very warm and clear with a range of tones available by simply adjusting the pickup blend pot. The 3 band EQ adds further to the basses versatility. From very clear, modern and detailed hi-fi tones all the way to warmer, darker tones the bass is great for all types of music. It sounds amazing using the back pickup with some overdrive. All electronics has been serviced, cleaned and are fully working and noiseless.
This is a great bass, ideal for somebody thinking about moving over to 5 strings or as a back up bass that still looks and sounds amazing... or even as a main bass! The build quality, tone and feel of the bass is superb. The bass comes with an excellent condition high quality Ibanez hardcase with a red velvet inlay which the bass fits into perfectly.
Local collection in Cardiff but happy to ship the bass in the UK also.
£450 plus P&P fully insured.
Will consider offers.
No trades, sorry!
Any questions please drop me a message. Welcome to try the bass out!
Just to reiterate this is not the B-205.. that is an Indonesian made, bolt on model that does not have the EMG pre and pickups, Grover hardware, rosewood fingerboard or swamp ash body.
Due to buying a Bergantino B-amp the following pedals are no longer needed and for sale:
Prices include UK postage. I would rather not ship outside of the UK. Please PM me if interested.
