Fender CS '58 P SOLD.
£1950
N West

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

From January 2000 - White Blond translucent beautifully aged to light vanilla. Shallow fast quarter sawn neck in lovely condition, frets very little wear. Light weight very resonant Ash body - just over 8lbs.

I owned this bass around 10 years ago, sold it to Dognofski of this parish and it was eventually in the very capable hands of Ben Epstein - bassist on The Voice. Ben had it set up/maintained etc by top tech Neill Lambert or top guys at The Bass Gallery.

Ben played it on the program often and on other gigs including jamming with Keith Richards, like you do.....  With a little persuasion, and a lot of cash - Ben sold it back to me around 5 years ago.

I added a very cool scratchplate - mint green/burgundy 3 ply from the US. Bass has a Gotoh bridge fitted and comes complete with original bridge, anodised plate and ash trays and includes a new non Fender case, can meet up, or ship at buyers cost.

It's a killer bass that I don't get to play enough to warrant keeping it. I know I will regret letting this go - again.

Stay safe, be cool  :)

Sale only thanks.

Cheers.

Yes, I bought this from Bill almost a decade ago and firmly belongs right at the top of my ‘Basses I should have kept’ list 🙈🙈.

i later did a trade with Ben for his early 6o’s EB2 Semi - which could very well be number two on the same list. by the way 😬😬!!

I have to say that whoever is lucky enough to buy this will be a very happy Boy, or Girl as it is a fantastic Bass and it may be worth you adding an accurate weight to the listing Bill, as if memory serves - I’m very old - it was the lightest P Bass I ever owned, or even played during the past half Century & so it would be a firm favourite amongst us ‘weightwatchers’ 😂😂👍👍. In fact a figure of ‘just a Nats dangly’ under, or a tad over the 8lbs mark may seem incredible, but tends to ring a bell?

GLWTS Bill, but some how, I don’t think you will need it 👍👍

I've had the inestimable pleasure of playing this bass and can assure any prospective purchasers that it is without doubt one of the finest Precisions that I've ever encountered (and there have been very many).  Aesthetically it has the patina of genuine, professional use (as mentioned above, in some fairly august company: real rock'n'roll royalty).  The wear pattern is authentic, and from memory, nothing to affect playability in any way.  The tone is absolutely rock solid, classic P.  Playability is sublime.  Though I'm not generally a long-scale C width player, this is immense fun to play and the neck feel is instantly recognisable and comfortable. In all, the perfect transitional P bass - immensely cool, in the pocket, and at home on the biggest of stages anywhere in the world.  If I could properly cope with a 1.75" nut, I'd have no hesitation in bending my credit card completely out of shape

Does it have the classic 1.75” nut or the more modern 1.625” that Fender often use?

      Trade value 2800£ (3150€). For sale at 2450£ (2750€)
       Relist this amazing bass, It's a Journayman Relic so scratches, dings etc comes straight from Fender. Very rare color, tone is fat as a true pbass should be. This bass was purchased past summer, and it's dated april 2019, new is approx 3450£ (as you can see from Thomann or Paul bass Matters). The bass comes with og case, certificate and strap originally included. It’ a great chance to get an amazing CS Pbass in almost new conditions, super rare color, 3A rosewood board at 1000€ less. 
      Only trade with Alleva Coppolo LM5 or Fodera Emperor Classic 5 birdseye board and dual coil (of course addin cash)
      Pm me for any additionall info.
      Stay safe.

      Fantastic Jazz Bass, bought from Coda in Stevenage in 2017. It was made in 2016. I have the accessories and certificate and the original case. The capo in the tool kit is broken however. There is some slight wear on the case from gigging and travelling but the bass is fantastic and in excellent condition, despite the relic treatment suggesting otherwise.
      Even with old strings it is very bright, with plenty of low end and mid range punch. Sits very nicely in the mix and is a joy to play.
      Weight is 4.5 kg.
      I am selling as I don't use it anymore and prefer my Yamaha BB.
      All welcome to come over and try it out.
      My feedback is here https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/298215-feedback-for-darylclayton/?tab=comments#comment-3211013
      Thanks

      For sale/trade is a stunning Martin 00-18V from around 2003 complete with original hard case. Not to be confused with the standard 00-18, this one is part of the Marquis range. Both guitar and case are in excellent condition apart from the odd mark commensurate with its age and a nitro finish ( there are a few swirls, a couple of pick marks and some tiny marks on the edges but very clean overall). 
      The guitar has recently been strung with Elixir Nanoweb strings and I have had a LR Baggs M1 passive pickup fitted which sounds wonderful. At the same time I had a strap button fitted at the bottom of the heel. 
      This guitar is part of the much vaunted Vintage Series guitars Martin released around 15 years ago. The Martin 00-18V acoustic was introduced in 2003 as part of the vintage series. It has a 14-frets to the body “00” Grand Concert body size and vintage Martin features - like the old style 18 soundhole rosette and inlays, vintage belly bridge, large headstock and aging toner finish. The 00-18V has a relatively wide neck - 1.75" inches at the nut - making it ideal for fingerpicking.
      This guitar has started ageing beautifully and sounds wonderful and deep now. Sadly the string spacing is a bit too wide for me (perfect for a bass player!) and I need to invest in a D18, D28 or J45 which would be better suited for my needs which is basically strumming!
      These currently retail at well over £3,000. I’m looking for a trade for an excellent condition Gibson J45 or Martin D18 or D28. I’d also consider a Status S2 or R*c 4003S of Fender CS Strat or Tele. 
      For sale price is £1,500.
