Selling my Alembic spoiler, in excellent condition. All the elements are original and work perfectly. It includes the famous Q filter, having a wide range of mid frequencies to play with. Three minor dents, visible in the photos, are the only imperfections it presents. Comes with padded case and skb protective armor. Slappers, jazzers and metalheads delight (and everything in between!).

      Hi Folks..
      After much thought and procrastination! Up for sale here is a Beautiful Sei Flamboyant 4 string bass in immaculate condition..Reason for sale is I just admire it, but never play it for fear of damaging it! (Madness I know) This bass plays and sounds as good as it looks! More importantly was built to be PLAYED!!
      I am the third owner..The bass was commissioned and built by Martin Petterson of Sei in 2004 by Pete (Scooby) He sold it and then bought if back, and I bought it of him in 2014.The bass is immaculate with next to no wear at all.
      34 scale, 1.5 inch nut, Ash body, 24 fret maple/bubinga seven piece neck. Ebony fretboard, Madrone burl (Strawberry wood) top and peghead veneers (Stunning) Kent Armstrong pick-ups, Aiguilar OPB3 preamp 18V push/pull midrange sweep. ABM bridge, Gotoh tuners.Very light 3.5 kg.lovely slim profile neck as are most Sei's I've played.
      Only trade I would be interested in is a Vigier Arpege series 1,11,or 111 four string bass. Open to sensible offers!
      Any questions please ask.

      Selling this unique bass, very special one. The only existing bolt-on mBass ever made by Marleaux. It is a bolt on as that is usually the prefered construction type by many for a more balanced fretless sound.
      New price would be around 4800€, but this bass was a one of, so cannot be ordered new.
      The bass is in absolute pristine condition with no dings or marks. I am only selling it because I need the money and this bass is not getting used ao much.
      - 34" scale, 
      - 5 string lined fretless 24 fret marks
      - three-peace maple neck
      - ebony fingerboard
      - mahogany body
      - figured pear wood top with wenge accent veneer
      - delano quad coil pickups
      - marleaux 3 band eq with active-passive switch
      - includes marleaux rigid gigbag, strap locks, tools and marleaux booklet
      - includes a new set of Marleaux roundwound strings
      - ships with laBella deep talking flatwounds.
      - include two ebony finger ramps (currently not installed on the bass)
      Asking 3300€/2995£ negotiable. Can ship worldwide.
      I could consider partial trades with money my way with things like: Fender american precision basses and/or 5 string american active jazz basses (can be nom fender) Noble preamps, vanderkley amplificarion stuff, trickfish preamps, some pedals, and yamaha silent basses.

      The bass is in very good condition with dings and use marks, which I has tried to show in the photos, I have priced to reflect the use (less than half the retail price) the frets, neck & stability are perfect. But I want you to be completely happy, so any trial /question...no trades...collection preferred
      Please check my feedback..

      Price drop, Was £875 now £840!!!!!!!!
      This bass has a great low action and the neck is smooth and fast and just had a fresh waxing with Warwick wax.
      Body of the bass has some mojo but has been given a good polish, a number of small dints here and there but still in good condition (see photos).
      Frets have near zero wear.
      Pickups are MEC in the neck and a Delano MM in the bridge, the two switches are one for the sims blue led's and the other is a 3 way switch is for the MM pickup when the switch is in the up position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in series. When the switch is in the middle position the bridge pick-up is single coil and routed as humcanceling with the neck pick-up. When the switch is in the down position the bridge pick-up is humbucking and routed in parallel parallel, series, split i believe.
      Electronics: Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. Push/Pull Volume/Pickup Pan Control (Part #M89252 -2 x 220K, 500K)* Treble Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Mid Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K) Bass Tone Control (Part #M85100 - 100K).
      By pulling on the volume knob you will activate the slap contour EQ curve on the Seymour Duncan Basslines preamp. This curve will boost the bass frequencies and the high fre-quencies, while slightly cutting the mid frequencies. Pulling the knob does not deactivate the active preamp. The Seymour Duncan preamp is considered  better than the more common MEC electronics.
      Sims LED's are fitted and are bright blue and really do go well with the colour of the bass.
      Body is swamp ash with a generous slab of flamed maple top.
