I've been trying to find our more about my Hohner headless bass from the late 80's which has a jack on the reverse and a strap with a rotating connector so that you can spin the guitar as in ZZ Top style ( but without the fur!). Does anyone else have this? I can't find out anything about them.
Luckily it has a conventional jack because it's totally impractical
Update by Jan 1st: Buyer‘s from within UK should be aware that for imports from EU to UK since Jan 1st the UK VAT will be applicable. This VAT has to be paid by the UK buyer once the goods are crossing the borders. Note: As a private seller in EU I can not reduce the price for second hand goods as VAT has never been included in the price. (Quote borrowed from mr bassman.de)
I have an OLD MM Bongo 6, one of the first. The Bongo 6 was introduced in the spring of 2008; my bass is "born" March 26th 2008.
It is a black HH that has some mileage, but I had it refurbished when I bought it. There were some laquer flaws, but now it is black where it should be black. No dings in the wood. The neck is nice and smooth; plays like butter. December 31st is the deadline for you-know-what, since this bass lives in Sweden. Here are some pictures:
A very nice bass; everything works as it should. Rosewood board on this; the new ones have ebony. I favour rosewood. I am very, very ambivalent giving this gem up, but it really ain't my cup of tea. String spacing at bridge is 17.5 mm/0.69-0.70". Delivered in the Hiscox case you see...
Any questions: ask! Trades? Well, try me.
For sale or trade my Shuker Series 2 headless bass with Moses graphite neck (Steinberger replacement). I bought this from a fellow basschatter in September and then sent it to Jon to customize it. He installed an ebony ramp to my specs, replaced the EMG knobs with chrome ones and replaced the headpiece to suit single ball strings.
However a few months ago I bought my first ever Ibanez bass (GWB-1) and realized that this is the sort of neck profile I really want (narrow and very slim neck). This neck would also allow me to play 5 strings which is my genuine preference.
Actually the Moses neck is far from chunky and I've found it comfortable to play with my rather small hands.
Condition: 10/10, like new, perfectly set up by Jon + Brand new Elixir strings. The tuners are like butter.
- Alder body (not 100% sure)
- Matt white finish with a shiny texture
- EMG MMTW pickup
- 3 way EMG preamp with parametric mids
- Nut: 39 mm / 24th fret: 57 mm
- 34” scale Moses graphite neck
- 16.5 mm string spacing
- only 3.5 kg!
I'm not too keen on trades since I have 3 other basses.
for sale or trade
Not getting the playing time that it deserves, excellent bass that’s super comfortable to play with its 30.5” scale length, suits E-C but I have it set up with heavy gauge hex core boomers and played lovely in B-G as well,
The preamp is amazing, so versatile and great as a studio tool to get loads of tones, passive bypass gives a great natural tone as well.
Here are the specs.
body wood is Alder
top wood is Eucalyptus burl which is stunning
neck is Wenge and Ash
Fingerboard is ACG’s signature acrylic impregnated Wenge for superior stability with luminescent inlays which glow on a dark stage.
Weight is 8.01lbs
Bridge pickup is the Acg SB single coil and the neck is the Acg FB humbucker
preamp is the ACG DFM 5k/AP which is the full dual filter modular with push pull mid boost for both pickups, passive/active switch with tone roll off pot as well.
there is 1 small blemish on the back behind the lower horn I’ll include a picture.
comes with the original semi Hard shell case.
I will ship at buyers risk, I would prefer collection or I’m happy to drive up to 100 miles to meet up.
