Fender Victor Bailey 5. Serial number 100202651. Probably the least used bass I have ever owned. I have gigged with it a couple of times but I no longer use it anymore. It comes with a flight case, guitar strap and hole cover.
I would prefer collection from SE London but I will post at buyers expense. Price negotiable.
The Godin ACS SA is a beautifully made semi-solid nylon-string electric guitar with synth access. Used acoustically it is loud enough for solo practice.
The neck is like that of a regular classical guitar but less chunky, with a nut width of approximately 49mm (1.15/16in).
The nylon-string output from the well-balanced piezo pickup under the compensated saddle is via a standard 1/4-inch jack and is controlled by a volume slider and 3-band EQ sliders with switchable mid frequency. Battery power consumption is extremely low.
The guitar can also function as a synth controller when connected to a Roland or Axon guitar synth using the included 13-pin cable, through which it also draws power for the synth circuitry. The fourth slider controls synth volume, and the two push-buttons correspond to S1 and S2 in the Roland system. I used to have a guitar synth, and this guitar tracks far better than any add-on GK pickup I have used. If you don't want to use the synth function you can safely forget about it though!
It is currently strung with D'Addario Pro-Arté hard-tension strings. This does not make the guitar 'harder' to play - on the contrary, you can dig in more (especially with a plectrum) without causing buzzing and tuning issues. They could do with changing, but I am including a fresh set plus a set of Savarez strings as spares.
I played this very guitar, with a plectrum, on this demo: Don't Speak solo
Comes with thickly padded Tribal Planet gig bag (with neck support), instructions, correct Allen key for the truss rod, and Schaller strap locks to match the strap buttons on the guitar.
There are a few minor scuffs and scratches, otherwise the photos give a good indication of the guitar's overall condition. The dots in the close-up pic of the bridge are tiny raindrops btw!

Here is my feedback from previous Basschat dealings for assurance of an honest transaction:
I sell this beautiful Eminence Upright Acoustic Bass.
The finish of this instrument is totally different from the others as it has a french polish.
Sound very similar to amplified double bass. It has a Realist pickup installed.
Padded soft bag (20mm foam) with handles and back straps.
I give a Krivo magnetic pick up.
