I don't think I can justify buying this at the moment but clicked to have a nosey and spotted your avatar - are you in West on Colfax? Love your stuff if so. I think we've recorded at the same studio too.

GLWS - I'd be buying under different circumstances, but then again you probably wouldn't have been selling...

just trying to be helpful, but I would remove the flowers just to show that the finish isn't faded or leaves and impression.

I know Kate! Say hi from Scott - Didn't you cover Stereolab? Yes hopefully we'll cross paths

It's a small world! I'll pass on your regards... 

It may be our Cocteau Twins cover you're thinking of there 😀

Thank you. We actually recorded that one ourselves in the drummer's kitchen but the previous three singles were done at Vibe - Dean is a good man 😀

      A pair of Hofner style ‘teacup’ knobs - grub screw attachment. I don’t think they’re genuine Hofner but they do the job! Price includes postage. The tops are tarnished which adds to a vintage look.

      Hello,

      PLEASE be aware that as the bass is in France, there might be import charges or delay to the UK.
      No probs with the rest of Europe.
      For sale is this beautiful Fender American Original 50s Precision in 2 tone sunburst from 2018
      This is the updated version of the American Vintage 58 Precision bass, with a flatter 9.5 radius, and no pre-drilled holes in the body for the bridge and p-up covers

       
      It is a lovely bass, with endless sustain, probalby thanks to the nitro lacquer, wide neck and attention to detail in these series.
      Articulate low mids, and great warmth from the Pure Vintage 58 split-coil pickup with enamel-coated coil and raised pole pieces under the A string.
      Rather lightweight (I need new batteries in the scales...), 4-ish kg / under 9lb I would say, tbc later.
      44mm / 1.73" at nut (bone) : wide and shallow profile (not sure why they call it "thick C"), reverse tuners
      Nitro lacquer finish
      In very good condition, in its orginal tweed case with all the paper bits and case candy.
      If you like a Precision, you immediately feel at home with this one, it is really responsive and feels natural.
      A well made short video grabbed from the net :
      Only selling as I have another maple Fender P incoming, and a few spares. 
       





       



       
       
      Asking for 1450€ / £1260
      These cost 2000€ new.
      Shipping with insurance would cost around 50 to 60€ to anywhere in Europe, taking from 2 to 5 days fully insured at buyer's cost.
      I have a feedback thread.
      Cheers.

      In order to avoid alienating the “traditionaly sane" members of the Basschat community I have arranged the following advert to be compiled in two parts;

      Part One will detail:
      · The item for sale
      · The asking price 
      · The option for delivery/collection 

      Part Two will contain:
      · Mostly nonsense
      · Incoherent babbling
      · The ramblings of a mad man

      Both parts will be void of any humour (naturally) 
      and absolutely no content contained within Part Two should be taking likely and can not be held against me in my forthcoming sanity plea...

      Part Two
      (LEAVE NOW)
       
      So, basically, back when I was slightly more deluded than I am today I purchased a number of Fretless Bass Guitars with the notion that I could master a Fretless instrument with little to no actual effort being made on my part...
      Needless to say, I was wrong!
       
      Whilst it might not be “Racket-Silence" or “Brian Sturgeon-ary" to learn how to play a Fretless Bass Guitar I will come clean right now and just admit that I am far too lazy to continue with anything that doesn't go my way immediately or pretty soon thereafter... I wouldn't quite go as far to say that I'm a defeatist but let me put it this way; 
      “If I flip the switch on a kettle and it ain't plugged in... the tea ain't getting made!"
      Same goes for if ain't got no water in it...
       
      So anyway, I'm now in possession of an all-round awesome German-made Sandberg California Fretless Bass Guitar that just isn't getting played and even when it is actually getting played it's ACTUALLY NOT getting played; it is just more or less being held by myself whilst I slide a finger up the D string and listen to it go “Mwahhh"... and then back down the D string to hear it go “Mwohhh"...
      I will occasionally repeat this three or four times before returning the beautiful piece of German craftsmanship back into its gorgeous Sandberg padded case...
       
      To be honest, I'm a little miffed as the sales person who sold me the instrument told me that “Sandberg's literally play themselves".
      I think what they meant to have said was “Sandberg's figuratively play themselves" because, believe me, this particular Sandberg does NOT play itself!  Not that I ever tried connecting it to an amp and leaving it in a stand next to my record player whilst I played it classic funky Motown tracks in the hope that it might play along... Ha, ha!! No, that'd be stoopid!!... Ha!!.. ha, ha...   Actually, come to think of it, maybe I just didn't have the volume up loud enough... ... I'll try again tomorrow... 
      So... I'm not making any promises but this instrument might actually play itself!!...
      The Sandberg is a passive bass meaning that it is entirely non-violent and fully compliant. It has AlNiCo Jazz Pickups, possibly something to do with Al Pacino...
      The fingerboard is Rosewood or possibly a Pau Ferro which I'm assuming is the creator of the material but it looks like Rosewood but apparently it's actually a Pau Ferro which I have no idea what a Pau Ferro is... But it might be the creator but I'm not sure... But it's actually probably Rosewood... Let's go with “Ro Ferro" 
      The hardware is black and all of it is, so that looks pretty cool... Err, it's also got a pickguard for those of you with really long scratchy “Nosferatu" nails or terrible “punk-like" strumming technique...
      Anyway, the finish is rather interesting. That's “finish" not “Finnish" though I'm sure the Finnish are also rather interesting... but in regards to the Sandberg's body finish, this finish is actually a 3 tone matt sunburst finish which is rather close to the tobacco sunburst finish but somewhere in between that finish and the regular sunburst finish. So altogether a pretty unique looking finish...
      Anyway, that's the finish!!

      Oh!! If you're actually interested in the Sandberg, visiting times are daily between 08:00 - 10:00 & 16:00 - 19:00 unless specifically requested in advance (hard hats to be worn at all times).

      *Edit: Enjoy the less grainy pics... 















      “Ooooohhh.... Look at that tasty, toasty finish & yummy, scrummy grain..."

      I am selling this absolute peach of a bass, I have owned this since new in December 2017 purchased from GAK in Brighton(receipt attached )
      This really is in as new mint condition including all of the original parts, strap, cable and paperwork all in unused condition.
      It is currently strung with Dunlop superbrights, there is also a set of new Fender flat wounds included.
      This has never left the home and been very well looked after, the actions is lovely and the neck plays well, I am only moving this on to fund another purchase.
      They no longer make this model and they are hard to come by.
      This is a great bass with that fender growl you would come to expect.
      I have more pictures if you want them DM me
      Any questions please get in touch 
      Here is what Fender say
      The American Vintage Series
      The American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars and basses. Take a trip through Fender history and heritage with these incredibly authentic guitars. The American Vintage series has a range of different years, spanning the mid-50s to mid-60s, all boasting key features and pivotal design elements from their years. The American Vintage series instruments provides expert preservation of an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy, showing how Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.
      The new American Vintage Series takes a cleared slate approach with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet - a complete and comprehensive re-imagination of the entire vintage-reissue concept that'll just astound you with its detail. Restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colours and more. Their work based on actual vintage guitars and basses they tracked down.
      American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass, 3-Color Sunburst
      The American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass incorporates the significant changes that were brought to the Jazz Bass in 1974. Only the year before had the bridge pickup been moved about half an inch closer to the bridge. Furthermore, 1974 saw the last of the four-bolt necks for quite a while. The bass guitar's slim "C"-shaped maple neck was re-sculpted with a meatier U-shaped profile (and acquired a walnut "skunk" stripe). White fingerboard binding and pearl block inlays made their first appearance, the longstanding tortoiseshell predecessors were replaced by black pickguards. The American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass also has white binding, pearl block inlays and 20 vintage-style frets. This Jazz Bass comes in a 3-Colour Sunburst colour.
      Additional Features
      This bass's other authentic features include its urethane-finished alder body three-ply black/white/black pickguard (three-ply white/black/white on Black model), new American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, upper-mounted thumb rest, '70s-style "Fender"-stamped open-gear tuners, vintage-style bridge with single-groove steel "barrel" saddles, four-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate, chrome pickup and "F"-stamped bridge covers with vintage-accurate positioning, and more.
      Features
      Equipped with two American Vintage '74 Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups for an authentic tone
      Alder body with a 3-colour sunburst finish

      I thought I'd done a family portrait recently but it was way back in 2017 according to my search. Here's the gang in all their glory (missing my upright and uke bass - not pictured, with all my amps in the kitchen).
      My kit (l-r) front Gibson Thunderbird, Eastwood EEB-1, Burns 6 strong bass, 51 bitsa, Rickenbacker 4003s, middle Fender Precision & Fender Jazz, back Eastwood BV, Gretsch G5440LSB, cheap Acoustic Bass and Hofner Verythin long scale bass.
