Modulus Flea 5
Very nice sage green metallic '98 Modulus Flea 5 with the sought after Lane Poor pickup. As you can see it has a matching headstock.
Its a great bass with excellent playability and excellent sound. The bass is in very good shape with one lacquer chip and some minor scuffing. The neck is straight and allows low action, and all electronics and hardware work like they should. Fresh DR sunbeams are fitted.
The pictures are taken in 2 sessions: daylight and sunlight. It looks especially nice in sunlight where the green really shines.
The original case is included, which has one stud broken off (case can stand stable) and another damage on the front.
Price: €2.950 (approx £2.650)
LOOKING FOR A TRADE: late 60s/early 70s Fender jazz (prefer worn and faded sunburst/tort/low weight). Partial trades with cheaper 4 string basses will be considered too.
The bass is located in the Netherlands, but I am happy to ship within the EU/UK at buyers risk.
Up for sale is my Maruszczyk Jake L in Fiesta Red (very Pino). I bought this new in mid April of last year. It has been gigged a few times and, apart from the usual swirls, is in great condition. Sounds just like you'd expect a P Bass to sound.
Jake L (Precision type) chambered alder body.
34" Scale maple neck, katalox fretboard with MOP dots.
19mm bridge spacing, 40mm nut width.
Standard Maruszczyk split coil pickup, passive circuit.
Tort, 3 ply pickguard.
Weighs 7lbs 3ozs (3.3kg ish).
Hardware is standard Maruszczyk fitment.
Maruszczyk gig bag.
Currently fitted with Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats.
Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around. As comparing from the internet (serial numbers and type of tuners), it's likely to be from 1972 or early 1973. I bought it as being a 1972 myself.
As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way.
Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should.
This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos!
The original hardcase is included.
Asking €1.100 (approx £975)
Now €750 with hardcase included or €650 without hardcase.
The bass is located in the Netherlands. Shipping is possible at buyers risk and expense.
Trades are welcome: old fender Mustang guitar, am std strat... 2eq stingray with lacquered neck, bunch of effects pedals, Mustang bass case, cool old Japanese basses.....
Vintage Trace Elliott AH200 BassAmp and Cover For Sale,
Now SOLD - thanks for all your interest! 👍😊
For sale only is my Trace Elliot AH200 Amp which I bought on Basschat from @stewblack earlier this year. Here's a link to Stew's ad which includes a link to a short video clip of the amp working :
The amp is in good working order and comes with it's original Trace Elliot cover as can be seen in the photos below.
Despite the fact that it's a high quality English made, classic design bass amp that's packed with quality components and features, it's really portable for such a powerful amp!
On that point, it delivers 200 watts at 4 ohms and trust me, they are seriously loud, old-skool Trace watts which to me, sound as loud as my Hughes and Kettner Bassbase 600 watt amp.
Apart from the classic Trace Elliot pre-shape switch - which I'd say gives you one of the classic bass tones of the last 35 years at the push of a button - it also has a switchable 12-band graphic EQ which gives you further extensive controls to easily shape your tone.
Having said that, there is an inherent Trace Elliot tone to this amp in my opinion which is great straight out of the box also! I think someone else on Basschat once described it as 'hard-baked' which in my head equates to a dry, punchy and vintage bass tone.
* 200 Watts of power at 4 ohms
* Passive and active input sections
* 12-band graphic EQ
* Variable control for the graphic EQ
* Balanced DI out
* Effects loop
* Noise reduction switch
* Line in/Line out
* Headphone socket
[Not sure how this link has appeared twice and now it has, I can't seem to remove it, so please ignore..]
In terms of weight, it’s about 9kg, and very easy to carry - lighter than the 300W version even though it is nearly as powerful. It’s convection cooled via a massive aluminium heatsink on the back – so no fans to go wrong. It does have that slight background 'hum' that these amps are known for, but it's not intrusive in my opinion..
There's plenty of reviews online for these amps, including YouTube videos, so I won't duplicate them here.. Suffice to say, if you want to hear one of these in action or get feedback on how they sound, the interweb is your friend.. 😁
I'm selling because I've got too many amps and not enough gigs! And, when I was gigging more regularly before the lockdown, I tended to always use my full valve amp...
So, here's your chance to pick up a classic versatile and great sounding bass amp at a very affordable price!
Covid safe and properly socially distanced vewings are possible and welcome (by arrangement) in Littlehampton, West Sussex and yes, I'm happy to send by fully insured courier (at buyer's expense) if necessary.
Any questions, please ask away here or send me a PM.
Thanks for looking as ever... 😊
Now fully up for sale, Part-Ex options would be a Lakland Skyline DJ5 with cash my way too, possibly a Lakland 55-60, or maybe a Precision 4 string of some description.
