LAST PRICE DROP £1250
Gorgeous Bass made in Switzerland, by great luthier Tino Tedesco ():
Body Ash with tonal Chambers
Neck quartesawn maple
Fingerboard birdseye maple
Hipshot Tuners - Dunlop Straplocks - Pickup X-EMG Active
Picked this up a couple of months back to have another try with five strings. Not sure what I was thinking because I struggle with four so in light of some recent purchases I think I will move this on.
The Good Points
It's a good, solid 5 string bass which punches above it's weight. Body is Bubinga wood, fingerboard is Rosewood. The neck is super flat and really nice to play. Hardware and pickups are by Wilkinson. The four pots are Volume, Tone, Bass, and Pickup Blend.
The Bad Points
It has a few marks and dings (the previous owner toured Europe with it) but nothing major, just general, light, wear and tear.
When I picked it up, it had a really low output, and the pickup blend pot was crackly when adjusted. On inspection, the battery had leaked and corroded the battery clip, so I replaced that and stuck in a new 9v which sorted the output issue. I haven't gotten around to fixing the pot yet. It may just need a squirt of cleaner, or it may need a replacement soldering in, both of which should be pretty simple and are reflected in the price.
Price is £125. This does not include shipping but does include a crap Fender gig bag to carry it home in. Shipping could possibly be arranged. I have a box, and can upgrade to a better more padded gigbag, but this will push the price to £160.
I would also consider a trade for a high end (Mono, Sadowsky) gig bag with money either way.
Socially distanced collection or viewing is welcome, as is PayPal if fees are covered.
Any questions, please ask.
Due to the Covid-19 situation and severe back problems (67% 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 as well as some stuff I don't use. I've also considerably lowered the price for a quick sale.

MusicMan Stingray Classic 4 2EQ Vintage Burst, Birds Eye Maple Neck (No Trades)
Located in Manchester
Beautiful bass, currently out of production, a childhood dream infact was fulfilled by owning one. Alas its time to move on and pay off some bills.
Bass functions 100%, everything works and all electronics (pre-amp and pickup) are stock
Was setup last month by guitar repair workshop in PMT Manchester.
I have included a ton of extras, (see pic) Polytuner, Pickguards, Pickup cover, Strap, Fender Cable, Extra foam mutes.
Has one small dent on the front above the arm rest and common surface wear scratches on the lacquer on the back and corners of the bass.
Neck has a thin folded piece of sandiing paper i put in as a shim as I play with super low action.
The stringray class by design has a limit on how low the bridge scews can go, a shim was my way around this.
Looking to post in the UK as a family member is extremely vulnerable to covid 19, can't have anyone over.
