Nice bass indeed - the fingerboard has a brass laminate which ensures a very stable and flat neck. Good price too.

Excellent and rare basses. The bridge pickup is a new one. The "brass" laminate between the neck and fretboard is made of Delta Metal which is a brass type alloy, but not pure brass.

The neck pickup on that one is a newer type. The early Arpege and Passion basses have the 'tabletop' shape pickup with exposed poles. You should swap the bridge pickups on these two so they both have matching sets!

On your bass, the bridge pickup is a new one. The neck pickup is the original one with visible pole pieces. There should be two identical to the neck pickup to be fully original and also the charger.

Here is one with the two original pickups.

And the original charger :

I’ve enjoyed seeing/reading this thread so thanks all. Which reminds me, I need to add my new(ish) Vigier to the Vigier thread! I shall resurrect it later...

Hope the new owner enjoys this bass, what a beaut.

It's a great bass at a great price and the pickup is just the new version of the excellent Benedetti (my favourite pickups brand with the Le Fay), so no big deal. And Mustapha is a very nice chap to deal with.

Enjoy your new bass.

Ironically enough Le Fay pickups in the Bassline Buster I'm selling, certainly fantastic pickups👍👍
