This was going to be my project relic bass ( don’t judge me, I need something to do now not rehearsing)
that was until I bought a Bruce Thomas bass so I only need one P
classic vibes are really well made this one has Elite Detroit flats on - the neck is a J style very playable
it’s the lightest p bass ever I’d say sub 8lbs
I still got the box so can ship for £20 to uk only or will drive an hour from Clitheroe to meet outdoors
♦️ I am selling this bass from the De Gier brand, with only 10 months.
BeBop 4 model, finished "relic".
Still under warranty (14 months).
I'm interested in a trade for a 5-string bass type Fender Ultra Jazz Bass V or similar;
I am also interested in Yamaha trb 5p (Adjusting the difference in value)
Inlays: White pearloid dots.
Colour: 3 tone Sunburst.
Pickguard: Darkest Red Tortoise Celluloid.
Original bag included.
Shared shipping costs.
I have started playing with a singer/songwriter who really really wants me to play a P bass so it's time to get one again after 33 years. As this is my least used bass, I am offering it up here with a heavy heart.
Long-standing BCer's may recognise the bass from the thread below which WoT has kindly given me permission to share along with his excellent photos.
WoT also recorded some audio files of the bass and posted them to his YT channel. I share them here with his kind permission.
I subsequently bought the bass from WoT but ended up mostly playing upright in the Americana band I'd intended it for. It's therefore only done a handful of gigs and recording sessions in the last 5 years and is in exactly the same condition it arrived in. It's currently strung with Lakland Joe Osborn flats and sounds mighty.
Please note it has a Precision profile neck. For some reason, the first owner removed the marker-pen Limelight signature from the back (Mark has confirmed it's #001100) and the 'offset body' logo from the headstock.
It doesn't have a case but will be well packed if I need to ship it at the buyers expense.
As my opening suggests, I am open to trades with or without cash adjustments for a good 60's style P bass with a Rosewood board - a Limelight, a USRI Fender or similar. I don't need anything else so no other trades will be considered. I am happy to trade it for pounds sterling too.
Finally, my feedback thread is:
