SOLD - Sire U5 short scale bass in mint
Orpington BR6

Recommended Posts

Purchased from this very parish in October 2020 from @haimesy who bought it new. 

Unfortunately I have only played it briefly a handful of times; uncontrollable GAS and self imposed limit of 3 basses means this is up for sale.


Sire U5 short scale bass in colour mint - £300 £280 collected or plus shipping, no offers at present.

Excellent condition. Only noticeable marks are a small ding to headstock and a very faint mark near the truss rod adjustment on the mint green edge.

Comes with basic gig-bag (doesn't fit great) that was new with the bass.

Collection  from Orpington BR6 (also possible at my parents’ place in Hendon NW4). Would consider driving to meet somewhere as long as it’s not too far. 

Postage now available via UPS at buyer’s cost. 

Appreciate I haven't sold here before so would consider shipping before payment to established members with significant feedback.

Also listed on eBay where I have substantial feedback (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224396320932)

If you don't mind me asking - what are you GASing for?

Three at the moment:

  • Yamaha BB434/BB734/BBP34
  • Stingray/Sterling H 4 string variations
  • Fender Flea Active Jazz

Probably a Fender precision too.

As a relatively new player I’d imagine there’s a whole load of awesome I’m not even aware of yet but they are the top of my list at the moment. Would make sense to go and have a play in a shop when/if lockdown eases.

I see the BB435 has made a good impression! 😊

It’s fantastic, love it! The addition of a string has been interesting but forcing me to work on muting. Mightily handsome too! 😍

Now have a box and copious amounts of bubble wrap/air bags so shipping via UPS is available at buyer’s cost. Will be suitably bubble wrapped inside and outside gig bag. Or happy for suggestions/advice from members with shipping experience.
