SOLD Bridge Cetus EUB SOLD
£1000
Stoke-on-Trent


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

This 'drop dead gorgeous' (Bassist magazine Nov 1998) instrument has been sat in my sister's flat in Devon for far too long now and isn't getting played by me, her, or anyone for that matter. I have a 3/4 upright which gets all the attention and a Stagg EUB for those ultra portable occasions when we play electric and a song just calls out for an acoustic vibe.

 

So back to the bass. If you could get one they would set you back best part of £3k.

There isn't a mark on the bass, as its had home use only.

To be honest it would benefit from a setup/ new strings but thats all it needs.

 

To hopefully make this an easy transaction I'm asking a very reasonable but firm £1000

Trades . . . . hit me  . . . .but only electric basses in the P bass genre.

Collection from Stoke, meet 1/2 way, or even possible delivery if no more than 2 hours  .

You can of course get to play it in Stoke but please bear in mind it has a piezo pickup and my upright has a magnetic pickup so my amp accordingly doesn't make the most of the Cetus.

 

Photos are from previous owner as I'm not where the bass is at the moment, but nothing has changed, and I can get my sister to take a couple if needed.

Think thats all.

If you are in the market for a unique EUB at the right price then here you go.

Price includes soft case.

I've taken some photos of the review in Bassist magazine to give you the full lowdown. I'll include the original copy in the sale.cetus1.jpg.fe64a17661f4a42a0872b5fb853f6205.jpg

I like that.

Yup. What I’d do with it is anyone’s guess - would look cool on my wall. Mrs T would chop my nuts off though…

You could put one on each side, in the cutouts.
