Debating getting rid of this beauty as I really havn't taken to 5 strings the way I'd hoped and they've got NOTORIOUSLY fast necks, so someone should be making use of it - Especially since Michael Pedulla retired and isn't making them anymore. Made famous by Chris Wolstenholme from Muse. In immaculate condition + original hard case + case candy/owners manual/tools.
Debating trades + cash one way or the other for 4 string Stingray, Modulus, or Vintage Fender Jazz. Based in Staffordshire, could meet partway if needsbe.

The 5 string version of this bass doesn't come up very often (certainly here in the UK) - In fact, they seem to be unavailable in Europe currently too. Not sure if they've been discontinued?
Not sure if the correct term is X-short scale, but I think it's 26.5" scale. I bought this as a travel bass, and took a punt, hoping the B string wouldn't sound "flabby"
I was very pleasantly surprised at just how deep and resonant the B string is - I really didn't expect it to sound so good
From memory, I paid around £230 or £240 for this bass new, that was pre import charges and sans case / bag. I'm throwing in a really nicely padded gigbag (which I think I paid around £40 for)
In great condition - can't see any dings or scratches and there is no fret wear. In all honesty, it could probably do with a teak in the set-up, but it plays nicely so I leave that to the buyers taste.....
Pictured here alongside a Hofner Violin bass for size comparison.
I would seriously keep this, as it sounds so thunderous for such a tiny bass - but the string spacing is a tad too tight at the bridge end for my tastes (or possibly clumsy fingers! lol).....
No trades - I'm thinning the herd (unless you've got a Wingbass, Fingy or similar)
Collection / meet-up preferred.... and I've got a decent battery amp when travel is permitted.
I have the box this cam in originally - but of course that won't fit the nice, thickly padded gigbag
Beautiful Anaconda Ultra J5 A3.
Great condition & strung with DR Blues.
The bass has had a recent full service & set up by Andy Warnock. Low Action & plays superbly. Very light & comfortable, Perfectly balanced on a strap.

Swamp Ash body
Glockenklang Pre Amp/ Active & Passive
Woodhead low output pickups, very sweet sounding
