Basslab Soul-V, Lace BassBars, ETS, Sold
Kaiserslautern, Germany

Recommended Posts

Up for sale is this custom Basslab Soul-V. I bought it new from Basslab 2,5 years ago. It is a super lightweight hollow carbon composite construction and weights only 3,6kg! Price new was 3180,-€!

The instrument was played on stage and is in good used condition but has some dings and dongs on the backside of the body. 

Just recently the bass has been serviced by Basslab and got a brand-new coat of color on the frontside of the body.

The tone is a little bit on the dark side of the spectrum due to the Lace Bass Bars. It has more low mids than the typical Jazz bass single coil combination. But paired with the 3-band preamp it is pretty versatile.

The BassXX Preamp is a 5 knob design featuring Volume(push/pull for mute), Volume, Tone(push/pull for active/passive), stacked pot for bass/treble, stacked pot for semiparametric mids.

Beware: the string spacing around the nut is not 100% equal. This is an optical thing and does not have any effect on sound or playability! It just was manufactured this way. Also the paint job in the bridge area is not 100% accurate. See pictures...

long scale 34“, 21 frets on flat fingerboard, zero fret!

2x Lace Bass Bars humbucker

BassXX Preamp, 3-band with parametric mids 

ETS bridge MK2, String spacing 17-19mm

Schaller BM-light tuner 

Weight 3,6kg!

The instrument will be shipped in a stagg-case. It’s not top notch but will do the trick. Will ship to europe.

Sipping is expensive (50€) due to oversize.

Feel free to ask any question!

As you can see in the new pictures there is a small misalignment in the bridge area. Again this is just a cosmetic thing...

All the best!

Some more things about this special bass:

You can play it without force and with light fingers. You don‘t have to work strings like crazy to get a nice tone out of it. The strong mid and low mid character would be killer on any kind of metal! It is super comfortable on a strap!

Why I‘m selling it:

It‘s not my piece of cake actually. I like to work for my tone and fight for my notes. I wanted to like this bass so much but it turned out that I don‘t. So here is the chance for anyone having the same question to not spend a fortune to find out!

      Hi all,
      Did ANYONE ever buy an Ibanez Artcore AGB205-DVS? I’ve searched high and low on eBay and Reverb and AliExpress and elsewhere, and cannot find one for love or money! Was it a limited-edition only (what years?), or so good that no-one wants to sell, or so bad no-one ever bought one? Please help!

      Thanks & keep thumping,

      Great Fender Jazzbass 1973. All original with OHSC. Very comfortable player,  less than 9 lbs/4 kgs on my kitchenscale, good balance,
      slim neck and low action. Nice growly fat Jazzbass sound. These early 70's Fenders have something different going on. And oh yes, the bass has
      some love signs but all works fine, including the trussrod.

      Up is a boxed set of Lace Man O War pickups. These have a great vintage voiced midrange with a more aggressive high and controlled bass. Sits really nicely between vintage and modern pickup sounds. I had these in a Marcus Miller Jazz and they were a huge improvement on the factory pickups. Theyre going on ebay new anywhere from £150-215. Asking £75 including UK postage.

      Hello All,
      This really is an initial feeler.
      I picked up this wonderful Moon JJ 4 from the Bass Gallery in Camden in August this year and I’m only considering trading/ selling it due to financial reasons.
      its an incredibly lovely sounding bass guitar however it is pretty heavy. It was set up with flats upon purchasing and they are now worn in nicely.
      in truth I don’t know too much about it, when purchasing it the guys at the Gallery believed it was old (80’s) however not too much more info than that.
      I am interested in trading for a lower value Jazz Bass (4 strings only please) and cash my way. Interested to hear offers and happy to answer questions!
