This one is really going to hurt - But The "cull" must continue, sadly - I need to reduce the amount of "stuff" I own, and thin my collection (although this need has lessened a little lately).
For sale only is my Limelight medium relic Precision, in faded Fiesta Red. This really is a superbly built bass, as anyone who knows Mark's work really is.
NOTE: This bass has a Jazz width neck (which is what I asked Mark for)
I don't know what pickups Mark uses in his Limelight range - but they sound superb.... the bass has a lovely warm vintage tone. It weighs around 4kg, according to my digital scales. Currently strung with Round wounds, which are in great shape (I put flats on it for a while, but have recently put the supplied round-wounds back on it).
I don't have a case or spare gigbag, so you will need to bring your own. Collection only - or we can meet somewhere mutually convenient - I have an excellent Bose Battery powered amp, or Vox Amp Headphones for you to listen to the bass.
Up for sale (no trades please) is my 2016 American Vintage '63 Precision in faded sonic blue with rosewood fingerboard. In immaculate condition, only played indoors, never gigged or rehearsed. There's some minor checking on the heal and upper horn, but in a very fetching and tasteful way (flash coat acquer). Been after one of these for ever, but despite many attempts, it just hasn't grabbed me. I have enough Precisions, got a new kitchen on the way, and I'd like someone else to give it the love it deserves. Of course, these are discontinued, and they are extremely well made recreations of the 1963 era P bass. Many details elsewhere on line, but key specs from my perspective:
flash coat lacquer (minor checking which I've tried to show)
maple C shaped neck (some nice figuring on the neck)
round-laminated rosewood fingerboard, 7.25" radius
1.74" nut width
American Vintage '63 Precision Bass Split Single-Coil
20 vintage style frets (well dressed, 20th fret has some slap wear from the shop not from me)
Vintage reverse tuners
3-ply mint green pickguard
chrome pickup and bridge covers, lower finger rest, clay-coloured dot inlays, auxiliary strap button on headstock
American Vintage Bass bridge with Threaded Steel "Barrel" Saddles
Vintage blonde case with red interior
Case candy (Fender flats on the bass, the rounds got used)
4.03kg/8.9llbs on my fish scales
Happy to ship at buyers expense in Great Britain.
Very difficult to capture the subtlety of the faded sonic blue on camera.
