Shuker Singlecut - Buckeye Burl

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Another beauty but need some cash...


This is not the most recent listing but has a super level of detail and background info on the bass:



Current pictures for perspective:












Plays itself pretty much, a total joy. I've got the bass strung E-C at the moment with a medium action - enough to start the strings nicely but still quick. spacing is around 18mm, it will go a little wider or tighten if you choose.


Has the Shuker preamp. It's very good - some 'give you flexiblity' but in reality you have to chase a few good tones and the rest suck. The Shuker pre just seems to augment the natural tone of the bass.


Comes with a Shuker case but shipping is extra. Btw if E-C is not your thing I will happily set the bass up B-G if you would prefer that tuning. The nut is brass but is cut nicely so works with either tuning unless perhaps you wanted to use some really unusually string gauges.


Anyhoo - pricing to sell so no offers or trades please.

Thanks Burns-bass - that doesn't surprise me at all. It is a serious instrument, definately up there with the best big brands I've played down the years.


For the avoidance of any doubt this shouldn't be viewed as 'too good to be true' - I'm asking what I paid for it less quick sale discount of my own. Keeping the love in the forum or at least trying to.


And the unavoidable cliche - if want I'm looking at sells I'll probaby withdraw it. Whilst I'm mainly gigging on 4 string Ps these days I would not feel myself without a decent E-C bass....

As long as you’re feeling yourself in private, we don’t mind if you need a bass or not to do so; feeling yourself in public might have penal consequences.

Hi. May I please ask if the bridge is recessed into the face of the body, or is it flush with the face? 


So the plate of the bridge is sunk into the body - it's a really nice design. The bridge saddles are where you'd expect them to be of course to position adjust the seating of the strings


I will take some current shots tomorrow in decent light and show this a little more clearly

WoW!  had I been a little closer I would be buying this;  not sure about 26[?] frets though☺️

Shipping is possible matey 


and yes, frets 25 and 26 probably don’t see as much use as 1-7!
