      Will consider a partial trade with a medium scale 5string, an Ibanez EHB 1005sms or a hybrid amp with some grit in the preamp tubes. Will consider a straight trade or a trade with cash either way. 
      This is a proto-type I made (for my upcoming business/own brand of short and medium scale basses) consisting out of a Schecter Banshee (2021 model) alder body and maple neck with carbon fiber reinforcement rods for extra stiffness.

      All the aftermarket hardware was carefully selected and installed, no expenses were spared and only the best hardware was used in order to make a top notch short scale precision bass that is ready for literally anything.

      The sound is punchy, direct, yet with a warm, vintage tone due to the Aguilar 4P mid 60's pickup.
      The neck is stable, sturdy and super easy and fast to play.

      I used Hipshot USA Ultralites for the tuners as these are known for their excellent tuning stability and help balance out the weight of the bass to perfection.

      The bridge is a high mass brass bridge from Allparts - Omega Bass and is a modern rendition of the well known Badass bridges from the past.

      For the pickup I decided to go with the relatively new Aguilar 4P-60 pickup as I'm a big fan of Aguilar's new pickup line and found these pickups to be some of the most balanced and best sounding pickups on the market today. The Aguilar 4P-60 was based on Dave Boonshoft’s personal 1963 and 64′ Precision basses, this pickup is designed to capture the vibe and feel of the 60’s. Using period correct heavy Formvar wire and Alnico V magnets, these pickups are specially wound to deliver the warmth and midrange “nose” that defines a great 60’s P-bass pickup.

      Combine all that with Hipshot speed-knobs, string tree and a wiring loom consisting out of CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, Orange drop capacitor and high quality wire and you get a short scale bass that plays and sounds like no other!
      The bass had a fret level and pro set-up by a master luthier and comes equiped with a fresh set of D'addario roundwounds, but I will also ad a set of labella short scale flatwounds to the sale.

      Hi all,
      Back up for cash sale, only trade options would be an Elrick standard Jazz 5 (not sunburst).
      I love this Evolution, sounds awesome, light swamp ash body and looks great. It's a solid 9/10 for condition I'd say. A couple of small indentations, but nothing I'm able to photograph well. Stock, these basses come with Bartolini single-coils, however I've swapped those out for Bartolini dual coils that came direct from Rob Elrick.
      So spec is:
      35″ scale
      Swamp Ash Body
      8.5 Lbs (approx)
      Satin Matte Black Finish
      3-piece Quarter-Sawn Maple Neck
      Ebony Fretboard
      24 frets
      2-way adjustable truss rod
      Bartolini hum cancelling Dual-coil soapbar pickups (Made in the USA)
      Bartolini 3-band pre-amp w/3-way mid and active bypass (Made in the USA)
      Fully shielded control cavity
      Black Hipshot Ultra-light tuners
      Black Elrick bridge – by Hipshot (Made in the USA)
      Dunlop Dual Design strap buttons (Straplok compatible!) (Made in the USA)
      £1550 - I'll include a Fusion Urban gig bag in excellent condition!
      £1500 - No Case
      Shipping would be difficult just at the moment, but we can talk about it as an extra cost, but happy to organise a socially distanced handover as a preference.
      UK only for now.
