SOLD SOLD SOLD Custom Squier Vintage Modified Precision 5 String Bass w/Handmade 35" Scale Neck
£390
Salford

Recommended Posts

Squier Vintage Modified P-Bass with luthier made 5 string neck in Wenge and Maple with Ebony fretboard.
 
The bridge was moved back to make the scale length to 35 inch scale.
 
Pickups upgraded to Delano PMVC 6 FE/M2 and pots changed (original pots included).
 
Hipshot Kickass bridge and Hipshot tuners.
 
Set of D'Addario Flatwounds installed a few weeks ago (ECB81-5SL)
 
Set of Roundwounds included (about 6 months of use).
 
Body refinished in Sherwood Green and in excellent condition with only a slight 2cm blemish (see pic).
 
Due to different pickups the pickguard doesn't cover the recesses fully, will need a custom pickguard if you want to fix it (didn't really bother me).
 
All work done by previous owner, had the bass since May and it plays great, no issues, selling as I prefer a 4 string and want something lighter / thinner.
 
Quite unique bass for those who want that Precision sound and an extra 5th string.
 
Test and pickup encouraged, will ship to UK for another £25 - I will include a budget gig bag with it. International shipping possible, please enquire.
 
Any questions or pic requests welcome.

Question - how do the fret positions work with a 35" scale length?

Not much difference for most part, the only time I wasn't comfortable was playing the pentatonic up past the 5th, I found it tiring if you try to go 1-4 without shifting the whole hand.

Thanks but surely the fret spacing needs to be consistent with the revised scale length or is it a 35 scale neck? 

Sorry if I've missed it in the listing!

Unless the OP has edited it since, it’s literally in the title of the thread that it’s a 35” neck 😋

Yes, indeed, that is the bit I actually read that but misread everything else 😂  I thought it was a stock neck, not a brand new neck.  Dimwit that I am.

      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
       
      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 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...
      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's just more or less just being held 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 sometimes repeat this three or four times before returning the gorgeous instrument to its lovely 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 instrument 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..."

      Purchased on reverb.
      Happy so far, fretboard was well used, gunky shall we say. Gave it a good clean and sanded the back of the neck a little and set up, plays well so far. Got for reduced price, now I know why! Seller was upfront to be fair. I'll give it a few weeks. These are beautiful basses, the white with maple neck and black pg is🤟
      Haven't fully played but nice to have active jazz for 250 quid!

      SOLD, PENDING THE USUAL.
       1983 Squire JV Precision bass, candy apple red, rosewood board. All original domestic JV, alder body, relatively light – 3,9kg. As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows some dings and dongs here and there, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in more than perfect functional condition: neck is straight as an arrow with minimal truss rod tension (it has a loooot more room to go), also the neck is extremely comfortable at 42mm at the nut and the playability is to die for – out of 12 precisions that I possess incl. very nice vintage fenders, this is the most comfortable to play: super nice neck profile (flat, but not too much) and extremely low action. This is also the last JV I have and the best compared to all the others I had over the years (around 10 if I remember correctly). With flats it does the Motown job, with rounds it sounds deep but aggressive.
      More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/1AJdmjTWwmQ3Qi7R9 
      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. I am aware the asking price is not among the cheapest – I have sold JVs here for 500 pounds some years ago, but am also not quite sure I want to let this one go, so if it doesn’t sell for this, I’ll be happy to keep it. Plus - try to find a CAR with rosewood board - it took me close to a decade. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.
