FS/FT: Overwater Fretless J (custom order) quilted maple top, ebony fretboard €1.150

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Beautiful Overwater fretless bass, custom made for the original owner around 2005.

The bass has a stunning quilted maple top and a nice green/blue burst finish. The fretboard is made of ebony.  It's an active bass.


















There are several cosmetic damages to be found around the bass; dents, scratches, missing paint chips; battle scars. The fretboard shows signs of use but is definitely in very good condition. All hardware and electronics function like they should. The bass plays very well and has plenty of the mwah you want from a decent fretless. 

An original, high quality Overwater gigbag/softcase is included.

Now €1.150

I am located in the Netherlands, but happy to ship at buyers risk (insured, well packed)

Is this bass coming from Paul D. Bad Bentheim?

That is correct, Jörg from Herne! And it's a great sounding and playing bass:)

      For sale is my gorgeous Limelight 1960 Stack Knob Fretless Jazz bass in Sherwood Green with medium relic. I had this made by Mark at Limelight to my specifications. As with all Limelight basses it sounds and plays beautifully.
      Details are,
      Unlined Ebony Fretless neck 38mm nut width. Hand rolled finger board. Aged nitro finish on the neck. Parchment scratchplate. Gotoh Vintage reverse tuners. Aged finish in nitro-cellulose. Lightly tarnished metal work. Stack knobs. Earth grounding strip from bridge to bridge pick up. Mute holes. Thumb Rest (Below strings). Hootenanny button on the back of the headstock. Period correct Fender logo. Weight 4.3kg Limelight make wonderful replica Fender basses and this one is no exception. Sounds and plays beautifully. It's very hard to photograph Sherwood Green as in some photos it looks green and in others it looks blue. So the last photo is next to a blue pot and a green pot which helps show the true colour of the bass.
      I paid £1123 for this at the start of 2020 and it has never been gigged or even left the house. Price is £750, based in Camberley, Surrey and UK shipping included.
      Would consider trades for the following,
      Fender Precision American Vintage Reissue 62 or 57 in Sunburst or White with cash your way.
      Fender Precision American Standard 2008 onwards (high mass bridge, lightweight Hipshot tuners and knurled chrome flat-top controls) in Sunburst with Rosewood neck.
      Fender American Performer Precision.

      NOW ONLY £130!!!!!!
      For sale is my Ibanez GSR200BF. It has a lined fretless fingerboard and that playability that Ibanez basses are renowned for. Two volume controls and a master tone which can be enhanced by a bass boost control.
      The bass is in great condition but has picked up a couple of very small dings that I have tried to show in the pics. The neck has no damage at all.
      Selling because I’m after something else and so I have to apply the one-in-one-out rule.
      Ibanez no longer make this model so the nearest I could find that can be bought currently is this fretted one with this blurb from the company website:
      “The Ibanez GSR200B-WNF Bass Guitar embodies the same ethos of each bass created since the series' inception 25 years ago, that of the perfect marriage of form and functionality to provide a bass of exceptional playability and sound. The body of the Ibanez GSR200B WNF Bass Guitar has been carved to offer a comfortable playing experience and awesome looks, with its contoured design. This has been constructed from mahogany for it's warm, biting tone with well-rounded lows.

      Adding playability to the comfort of the Ibanez GSR200BWNF's body is a GSR4 maple neck, topped by a rosewood fingerboard with medium frets and white dot inlays, and intonation kept stable by a B10 bridge. Delivering the strong voice, with a full low-end, of the Ibanez GSR200B-WNF Bass Guitar is a pair of PSND pickups, a Powersound P and Powersound J. This is combined with the Phat II EQ. This addition consists of four control knobs, giving you two individual volume controls, a master tone, and a bass boost, which gives you instant extra low-end grunt whenever you need.”
      I don’t have the packaging to be able to post so it has to be collection only although I could meet up within a reasonable distance (say 30 miles) from Leeds.
      No trades thank you.

      bridge is fender, tuners schaller

      5 string Spectorcore lined fretless bass in as new condition having had minimal use since buying brand new from Bass Direct last year. Still has the plastic wrapping on the electronics cover!
      This is the version with the Fishman piezo pickup in the bridge and the Bartolini pick up rather than the EMG.
      It’s 35” scale, passive and strung with rounds. It plays wonderfully and is a great bass for the money.
      Collection preferred from Cheltenham, Glos.
