Sadowsky MV PJ5 - £1,700 (excl. condition)
I bought this new in 2009. It's been my no.1 bass for over a decade and kept in stunning condition. It's a beautiful translucent white finish, so you can see the woodgrain really nicely. Just a few scratch marks on the scratch plate and natural slight wear to the back of the bass, but overall in excellent condition as you can see in the pictures. Happy to send any more pictures directly for anyone seriously interested.
I don't have all the official measurements now, but it's got an ash wood body, maple neck, 5 string. I have kept it for so long as I was so happy with how the sound just found its place in the mix so effortlessly and never needed to dial in any frequencies to compensate. All the FOH engineers I worked with always commented on how they didn't need to do anything to the signal. I love this bass, but I feel it's time to move on, so happy for this to find a new home now.
Purchased in 2019. MusicMan Stingray V 3EQ Active Bass Guitar. White with Maple neck.
This was my dream bass and I'm reluctant to sell, however .I'm moving to NYC
Available to pick up in Peterborough
Apart from a tiny dink on the neck which I've tried to capture that doesn't affect playing whatsoever this 12 month old bass is in great condition
A big potential purchase has come up and sadly I need to move on a couple of basses to help pay for it
So, as a result, here is my lovely Hartke XK4 active bass. I always wanted one of these as I had played one in a shop approx 15 years ago and had been blown away by the massive (almost Status/Modulus graphite-sounding) active tone, striking black/chrome and brushed aluminium looks... and easily playable neck that felt like it was short-medium scale! It didn't disappoint and I've hugely enjoyed owning and playing it. Indeed, soundwise, it's been a fave of many musicians I've ever played with as it cuts through with authority and ease.
Here's the original sales blurb from Hartke:
Designed to Larry Hartke's specifications and featuring high quality components throughout, the XK-4 represents a more accessibly priced option for professional bassists. This precision instrument features a Poplar body coupled to a Vaccaro double T-Bar aluminum component neck system with a rock maple neck shell that provides a familiar feel and easy playability. This unique neck system consists of a lightweight aluminum aircraft extrusion welded to an aluminum triple-plated chrome headstock. It not only ensures maximum resistance to atmospheric conditions and string tension, it provides exceptionally long sustain and tuning stability over the long run. A Rosewood fretboard with ultra fat action neck finish and Nickel-Silver frets further enhance playability while the XK-4's Zero-fret design provides flawless open string response.To best capture its extraordinary sustain, tone and presence, the XK-4 is equipped with high performance passive pickups and active electronics. Other features include dual volume controls; concentric bass/treble tone controls; a chrome bridge and tuning machines and a brushed aluminum finish pickguard. Like the XL-4, there is a lifetime guarantee on the neck assembly.

Sadly, less than 1000 of these were ever made when Vaccaro suddenly went out of business and production ceased in around 2002. Condition is excellent (especially for a 18 year old bass!) with just a couple of very light surface dings on the body edge. More pics available on request.
These are high quality instruments and were priced at around $1000 / £800 new when they came out. I therefore feel I'm offering a bargain at just £SOLD!
Happy to courier at your cost (prob around £50 for 24hr UPS via Interparcel).
