      A big potential purchase has come up and sadly I need to move on a couple of basses to help pay for it.
      UPDATE: This was £225 + courier...... Now JUST £210 INC courier! Need to move this on....!
      So, as a result, and using the last in/first out rule.... here is my gorgeous Archer KS3 Kasim Sulton Signature Bass. Not a lot of these around.... but a lovely feeling/playing instrument - lightweight with classic offset Jazz meets Spector/Tune/Bass Collection style looks....
      More pics available on request.
      Here's the official blurb:
      For over 30 years bassist/singer-songwriter Kasim Sulton has worked with artists as diverse as Todd Rundgren, Blue Öyster Cult, The New Cars, Meat Loaf, Joan Jett, Utopia, Celine Dion, Bon Jovi and Hall & Oates. He also played in the musical "Movin' Out on Broadway", Mike Portnoy's "Blue Matter Custard" and has his own increasingly successful solo career. The new Kasim Sulton Signature K S3 Archer Bass is a visually stunning and truly unique sounding instrument, equipped with a P-Bass/J-Bass pickup configuration and a bridge design built to Kasim's own specifications.
      This newly updated model features updated precision bridge adjustments, which provide a newly improved fretboard action for ease of playability on the road and in the studio. Overall, the K S3 Bass provides a rich, full-bodied tone and sustain. If you want great performance, undeniable style and affordability, look no further than the new v3 Kasim Sulton Signature Bass from Archer. "This latest version is the result of a continuing effort to improve the look, feel and technical aspects of my bass. This “Version 3” K Bass represent the positive changes I continue to make during my road tours and studio work. I feel this proactive approach helps to make this instrument what is has evolved into today since its inception of the original model produced 9 years ago. Whether I'm playing with Todd Rundgren, Meat Loaf, Blue Öyster Cult or solo, I rely on my K Bass for the performance I'm looking for in a road and studio-tested quality instrument." - Kasim Sulton

      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) 
      4,5 kgs
      Seymour Duncan dual coils
      Dual action truss rod
      Etc.
      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

      1982 Fender Precision Special, ash body, rosewood neck. The color would have been Arctic White according to the catalog, but as you can see this bass has seen it all – I got it from the first owner - a session musician, who did play on it every day for almost 40 years and it shows. I do not know where to start with the roadworn part, but as can be seen – finish is worn almost everywhere, lacquer on the neck is gone in many places, there are numerous bumps, dings, dongs, etc. (luckily surface, no structural damage), pickguard is cracked near the jack, finger rest has been relocated, fingerboard and frets are also worn from playing, etc. etc. – all this is shown in the photos.
      Now the good part – the bass sounds tremendous, I was skeptical towards the Precision Special model and went to check it out only because it look extremely road worn (which in my book is always good), and walked away with it. The action is nice (truss rod has some more space) although the frets are a little worn (if you are picky there is room to have them polished/crowned), the neck has a very comfy beefy C shape profile. Best part is the sound – I admit that always use it in passive mode and it sounds huge – responsive, lots of everything - lows, mids and highs – a very full sounding bass, a bit like a 70s, but not so clanky. Active mode is also nice if you are into this. It is all original apart form 2 screws as far as I am aware, all relicing is natural, weight is 5,05kg, nut width is 42mm., all hardware and electronics work as they are supposed to.
      More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/WPTdiHeXBmHbDgPZ8x`
      I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. The asking price is what it costed me, so am not very keen on discounts. No trades, I am afraid, unless it is a well played pre-1974 precision or recent B-15. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      It comes with the original case it was purchased with – Fender “Duck foot” Tweed case (sold more with Fullerton reissues) which is in crooked condition, but if you do not want it – I can knock down 70 pounds off the price.  
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.
