SOLD - Shuker Artist 5 string Fretless - SOLD
£1500
Epsom

Recommended Posts

This is a beautiful bass which I haven't had very long, unfortunately the string spacing is not quite right for me at 16.5mm.  This, coupled with the fact I've now bought a replacement, means it's up for sale.  Quite stunning to look at, very lightweight, it plays like a dream and the East active controls give a massive tonal range.  Complete with Custom case.  Here's the full spec:

 

Shuker 5 string Artist fretless
34” scale
45mm nut width, 16.5mm string spacing
gentle C carve
laminated mahogany neck (mahogany / black veneer 5 piece)
ziricote fretless board
two way truss rod, carbon fibre reinforcement
mahogany scarf headstock
figured walnut headstock veneer front and back
2mm side dots on fret position
2mm face dots between G and D string, 12th to 24th fret
composite nut
satin neck lacquer
Schaller M4 lite tuners
Mahogany chambered body
figured walnut drop top
black top edge binding
rear 1/2” round-over
reduced heel and recessed fixings
rosewood inset bridge
satin neck lacquer
composite saddle
piezo pickup
dual coil pickup faced with ziricote
piezo buffer preamp
Uni pre 3 band eq
rear flip top battery compartment
black hardware
black nylon tapewound

Collection from Epsom Surrey, or I can post to a UK address for £30.

This is going on Ebay over the weekend, so if anyone wants to do a deal, sooner might be better than later.

Saw that on ebay, its a thing of beauty, love johns work. Pretty well everything perfect on it, but I can't really do fretless.

GLWTS - found the market a bit slow at the moment!

Sorry, I'm not up for a trade as I just have more 5 string basses than I can justify.  This one's on ebay, the auction finishes on Saturday, if it doesn't sell maybe I'll do some clips next week.
