Yamaha BB3000 A + FLAMETONE P/J Set- TRADE options added

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody

Up for sale my beloved BB3000 A. Made in Japan 1983 , she have seen a lot and played more. As you can see in the pictures there are a lot of marks and a big one on the bottom that was hard. Some superficial cracking but it does not affect the integrity or the sound of the instrument. 
Electronics has been replaced with a set of Flametone P/J ( 400€ installed by Alessandro himself in Milan ) controls are Vol/Vol/Tone/Tone and a miniswitch put you in P territory ( probably one of the best P sound I've ever heard IMO ).
Tuners were replaced with brand new BB30000 original tuner which I've found by a collector in Italie.
The original pups, controls and preamp are also included. Cleaned and tested by Mr. Flametone.
Ebony fretboard , frets are fine , trussrod working like a swiss watch and a very straight neck. One of the best neck I've ever put my hands on , fast and sleek a slapper paradise. 
The girl was played a lot and she hass seen tons of stages , the marks are there , in the pictures . Need a detail just let me know !
Shipped with an ordinary gigbag in a tank proof box.
I will accept a trade with a very light Mensinger Joker B 32" 5 Strings or a NOBLE PREAMP DI

Partial trade possible with :

Becos Stella Comp
Empress Bass Comp
3leaf Audio PWNZOR
Darkglass Luminal
Source audio C4

      This is a very hard decision for me as I love my Vigier basses so much, but I have decided to move back to 4 string bass for the foreseeable future. I have enjoyed my forays into the world of 6 & 5 string bass, but my writing has changed a lot and I need a new sound/approach/challenge. I will be keeping my other Excess 5 just for the studio and that low B, just in case I need it later down the line but it does mean, that I don't need two of them. So with that in mind, here is what I am selling -
      A brand new, in perfect condition, and I mean perfect condition, as there are no scratches, surface scratches, dings, dents etc Vigier Excess 5 bass. It has never been gigged and only used in the house. It was ordered directly from Vigier back in 2018 and arrived with me last July (2019) as a back up to my other Vigier. Who was I kidding? The things are so flipping stable, you don't need a back up with these. Anyway, I ordered it in a custom "purple", and it is stunning. It comes with the official Vigier Hiscox case. The neck on these basses are to die for, just so beautifully crafted in every way. The sounds available to dial in are limitless, a very versatile pre-amp (18v). It was fitted from the start with Dunlop Stainless Steel Superbrights (40-120). They don't make many of these basses, and especially not in this colour. If you want something stable, powerful, unique and something that will last you forever, this is your baby. They cost £3200.00 (RRP), so grab a beautiful, handmade, rare and beautiful bass while you can. The bass is located in South Wales. I'd prefer collection, but happy to post if it will help the buyer. I have the box it was sent in. Any questions, please feel free to PM me and I will do all I can to help.
