!!! SOLD !!! GROSMANN 5 FF Custom Order. Mistaken price. Now => £777 GBP delivered !!!
Etalle, South Belgium


Recommended Posts

Due to the Covid-19 situation and severe back problems (66% officially disabled because of it) plus right shoulder injury (non-operable capsulitis from which, after more than 3 years, I will never fully recover), I'm selling all my basses over 4 kilos and also the ones I'm not really using. I've also considerably lowered the price for a quick sale.


GROSMANN 5 FF Custom Order, top of the range model with a 2 pieces body in wenge and alder, 2019, 34 to 36 inches fanned frets.




Asking price including shipping fully insured with tracking number to your place in these European countries (ask for other countries) : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (excluding French overseas departments and territories), Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom : £777 GBP !!! (new price was £1599 GBP...)


In fully working condition, fully original and in very good lightly used condition, almost new, except some very small blemishes (see below).


Here are the specifications :

Body  : bass side in wenge and treble side in alder for better sound balance

Top : book matched flamed maple

Neck : bolt-on (with inserts) one piece hard rock maple

Fingerboard : wenge (flat radius)

Frets : 24 (no wear at all)

Headstock : 3 + 2 shape with a string retainer

Pickups : 2 x Delano JC 5 HE/M2-AS (AS is for longer pickups)

Preamp : Delano Sonar 2

Knobs : soft grip rubber

Scale : fanned frets 34 to 36 inches

Hardware colour : black

Truss rod : one double action fully working with 2 carbon rods in the neck

Finish : high gloss black burst with some very slight shades of purple on the front and headstock (not as strong as on the photos and depending on the light too), high gloss black on the back and matte finish on the back of the neck

Land of craftsmanship : Romania

Serial number : none (custom order)

Year : 2019

Weight : 4.625 kilos

Action : from 1.5 mm under the G string to 2 mm under the B string at 12th position (can go lower, but was perfect for me)


Will come with a Music Store well padded gig bag (the only one I have which is big enough for this bass).


Non-smoking environment as usual.


The bass has been fully set up professionally. It has been fitted with a brand new set of specially designed for fanned frets basses Dingwall Nickel Plated Steel round wound strings (45 - 55 - 80 - 100 - 130).


I wanted to try a fanned frets bass, but as a fretless player, I'm bit "lost", so my loss is your gain. The bass is very powerful with roaring low mids (thanks to the wenge) and the combination of the full Delano design (dead silent), with the lutherie and the Dingwall strings gives a really punchy, clear and full sound whatever way you turn the EQ knobs.

What you see is what you get !


Look at the photos taken under different angles to see the very good lightly used condition (almost new) of this bass, except for 3 points at the back, some surface scratches on the front and back (hard to capture) and other very small blemishes around the output jack.


Don't hesitate to ask for more.

Dingwall experimented with different body woods for bass and treble sides of the body so this bass is in good company! Were I in need of a 5 string messages would be sent as I think this is some contemporary bass building for a ridiculous price.
