For sale is a beautiful example of Martin Petersen's work. It was made for Randy Hope-Taylor about 20 years ago, and the chap I bought it from recently had owned it for many years. It's certainly unusual, sporting a Tele headstock and stacked knobs, and as with all Martin's work, beautifully made. Having played extra long scale 5-string basses for many years, sadly it just doesn't work for me and my gorilla mitts!
Surf green body with matching tele shaped headstock
Flamed maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard
38mm nut / 19mm string spacing
Gotoh GBR640 tuners
Alder body / parchment pickguard
Passive / stack knob
Mørch single coil jazz pickups ( 60s spacing )
Vintage spiral saddle bridge
It also comes with a chrome neck pickup cover and an additional tort scratchplate. The neck & fingerboard was originally painted white, but the previous owner had this stripped some years ago by Martin Sims, and he did a great job revealing the beauty of the flame maple.
The only trade I would be interested in is for a 35" scale 5-string with 19mm spacing.
Fender Marine Layer Reverb, bought from Andertons 4 weeks ago. Absolutely brand new, used twice in lockdown, now surplus as I have acquired a Plethora X5.
A brilliant pedal particularly for fretless playing with its variation and control. Has a very clever instant battery change door that flips down!
3 Reverb types - hall, room, special
Each reverb type has 2 variations for maximum versatility
Control over reverb time, damping, pre-delay and level
Effect tails continue when pedal is bypassed for a smooth performance
Lets you achieve all manner of reverbs, from slap-back, subtle room ambience, through to huge atmospheric halls and 'shimmer'.
So, save on a new one. Insured post at cost.
Amazing bass that really does feel like a vintage bass.
The flea bass comes with stacked pots which in my opinion are much better than the VVT controls fitted to most fender jazz basses.
Comes with fender gig bag.
Social distancing collection possible, postage as buyers cost.

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.
