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.

Looks like he winds his own pickups.. Info in the thread here and other links.

That could indeed be the case. As a matter of interest (well, to someone maybe lol) I bought a pickup from him, to fit to another bass.
The improvement in the sound from that bass was really noticeable too. Cheers

So tempted. Do you think that's a rosewood board (not ebony)? Looks really dark (which is ace)

It's definitely rosewood - that's what I asked Mark for. Yes, it's dark and it's lovely :) perhaps the darkest rosewood I've ever seen.

Homer Simpson indeed. That's exactly the sort of For Sale listing that get all us grown-ups acting like 7-year olds in a sweet shop (or donut shop) :)

Beautiful bass, one of those rare instruments that just works visually. I've a fretless back that would sit wonderfully on that body. Mmmmm

Why’d you not do shipping 😭
 

such a nice bass!!

I hate posting expensive instruments, and it usually takes me forever to find suitable strong boxes & packing.
Also, it's expensive - and due to a sad past experience, I found the "insurance" wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.....

Last time I posted a bass went well - but the buyer sent me a suitable box and pre-paid the courier
I'd be open to that again, but I'd still prefer to know the buyer is happy anyway.

EDIT: Yes it really is a nice bass. If I didn't need to reduce the collection, and have a good old "life laundry" - I'd be keeping this one
But I recently acquired another bass, and I'm currently smitten with that new one.

Thank you Marc! What's the weight on this beauty?

It's pretty much spot on 4kg. I weighed it on my digital scales, and they seem to be accurate.
