The video was recorded with my iPad, the bass was played through an Aguilar TH 350 + 2x Aguilar 1x12" SL.
The sound was set up the way I like it: warm, lots of high mids. The bass is suitable for any style, I play mostly Latin Jazz.
Up for sale (no trades) is my 90s 2010-11 Mustang, white with torty guard
Condition is Ex+, just a small mark on the underside of the headstock – see pics
Pics to follow either today or tomorrow
Fender gig bag only so collection advisable, Hard case now included, although I could disassemble for shipping if necessary (UK only)
I'm not sure where to post this really: http://www.sankeyguitars.com/whatsnew/2018/10/1/new-invention-wrap-lock-headless-tuner It's from a few years ago, and the examples are all guitars - but I can see it working with tapered or exposed core bass strings without scaling it up significantly. Not sure if it would be that useful on most basses with all wound strings but a piccolo bass or a six string (or more) with plain strings might benefit immensely over some of the standard set screw arrangements.
I think I might have stumbled across a possible path to tool-less headless single-ball-end string changes, if only you could implement a nifty automatic clipping system like some locking tuners have!
Does anybody know of something that exists that does all this singing and dancing? The closest I can think of is the NS Design Self-Clamping Tuning System which you still will want to clip the strings for - even if it was on the market as a bridge seems like a lot of routing, forces a certain string spacing, and would not allow for rear or other interesting, shrouded or angled tuner arrangements due to the tuning knobs being where they are (like a volume knob, 90 degrees from the usual headless arrangement, parallel to the strings).
Selling a 2016 Sandberg 48, 5 string, tobacco burst with hardcore ageing.
34" Scale, Rosewood fretboard with block inlays.
Creme hairline pickguard.
Never gigged. Hardly ever played. Would need new strings!
Comes with the original padded gig bag and tools.
Price includes PayPal fees and postage and packaging within the UK.
I am willing to negotiate on the price but I am NOT interested in trades.
