Picked this up locally, gentlemen said he got it from this very forum, excellent sounding bass
The bass itself is listed on Andre's website with a rosewood fretboard, yet this one is maple. So it's certainly not standard.
It also has a hipshot fitted to the E string.
Bass requires some work to make it perfect, which I'm not the right guy for, as such I've decided to knock some money off.
Has an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp fitted which is a positive, I'd question the way it's been hooked up as one of the switches doesn't alter the sound at all. Otherwise really powerful.
There is a hole in the body where someone looks to have tried to change a pickup.
Bass comes with a Music Man hardcase.
If you would like to arrange a play or need to ask any questions, I'm happy to oblige. Thank you for your interest.
Selling this one is a tough decision really, in fact I would never have expected selling it, but times are changing for me and I am thinning the herd which leads to selling great basses that happen to be in the same sonic area as others I have.
Up for sale is my fat, funky, Fender-ish Fodera VW Deluxe Custom 5 built in 2004.
35” (easy to play: no additional stretching compared to most 34” basses)
Madascar Kingwood board
Dove-tail maple neck
Tiger maple front
Mahogany body (I think)
Seymour Duncan dual coils
Dual action truss rod
Some playing wear but overall in very good condition and technically 100%. Very solid bass, (low) action, string spacing (+/- 19mm) and neck curve anyway you like it.
Comes with original hard shell case
I bought this new last year. It's only been used a handful of times because I'm playing bass a lot less now. Beautiful natural finish and solid tone with a nice bit of growl typical of Lakland basses.
Collection is preferred, but I can ship at extra cost.
Feel free to message me with any questions. See below for the official blurb.
The 44-64 is modelled after the venerable workhorse '64 P bass. One custom-wound Lakland pickup provides a bruising punch and drive that nails the vintage split humbucker tone, sending it through the roof with full voicing and modern energy. The body and 34" scale maple neck have an excellent balance.

As you can see in the title i was wondering if anyone has built a clone of Cliff Burton's famous Rickenbacker. I was wondering if this would be a good idea if i start with a cheap copy.
Thank you for reading
My herd thinning continues with this, a Yamaha RBX374.
This is a really nice bass, in very, very good condition, plays well and has a monster sound. The two MM style pickups give access to a very large palette of tones, very impressive. Usually is with Yamaha instruments though I find.
The pics speak for themselves.
I'm based near Honiton if anyone wants to come have a noodle, and would prefer the bass be collected. I'm not averse to posting if need be though. Alternatively, I'm on the road a fair bit with my band, and could bring this along to a gig should we be playing near you. Dates and venues here - http://cloudbusting.co.uk/dates
