Status S1 5 String - For Sale / Trade

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

I p/ex'd this from Shockwave recently. But I've decided to move it on.

Its a really nice bass - and (apart from a little buckle rash) you can see it is in excellent condition. It also comes with a Status / Hiscox hard case.

But, having A/B'd it with my Sandberg PM5 on a variety of gigs it doesn't really bring anything new to the table for me. Ordinarily I would keep it as a back up fretted but at the moment I need a smaller amp / cab or combo for some theatre work I have coming up (past experience has told me my GK and EPI UL310 are a bit much - both in terms of size and power). Also I could do with something for home practice and teaching.

Therefore, if anyone is interested in a P/ex or swap - I'm looking for some small / lightweight amp / cab / combo options.

It will need to be compact and (if a combo) have 150w minimum. I've an open mind, but off the top of my head: GKMB or other combos, GB Shuttles or otherwise, Hartke Hydrive Combos, Ashdown LG, Markbass, Aguilar (GS112), Warwick / Ampeg / EA spring spring to mind.

If anyone is interested in buyng the bass outright let me know. I'll need to have a think about a cash price but it will be somewhere near Rob's valuation.

Rob's post is fairly recent, but let me know if you would like me to post some pics.

Also - not into postage at all. Based in the north east - but I do get about a bit so reasonable travel considered.

Cheers

John

Anyone? This is a really great bass - nice quilt top and superb graphite neck.

I would prefer an amp trade / p/ex but open to cash offers. Otherwise ebay or a p/ex on a new amp beckons...

I wish I could help you out, but I've just bought a new car & I'm going to need a cheaper double bass for jazz playing soon, so that's all my money spoken for in the short-medium term. Best of luck with the sale - It's a stunning bass!

Thanks Guys

Yes it is really nice. My rationale is that my Sandberg is a bit more versatile. If I could combine the graphite neck and looks of the Status with the PM5 I'd be made up.

If I don't get any more interest, then rather than p/ex'ing it against a new compact rig / combo I'm considering keeping it and looking for a cheaper amp option - e.g. a good small cab that I can use my GK head with - like a Aguilar GS112 or a GK NEO112 or perhaps even a cheap combo - for use at home and in the pit.

I've took a few more photos of it but they aren't the best quality so not worth posting here, but if anyone is interested I can send them.

Regards

John

Nice bass. :) I have almost the same thing ... 5-string, quilt top, but fretless and honey finish. Great bass.

Best of luck with the sale.

Thanks for the bump MB1!

Not getting much interest in this, which is surprising as its an awful lot of bass - especially compared to the price of a new Status.

Just to stress - don't get hung up on the amp / combo p/ex thing, I'm happy to take reasonable offers on the bass outright. I've a couple of months before the theatre gigs and if push comes to shove I can get a cheap combo option or squeeze my GK / EPI set up in if I have to.

I think this will be my last bump for a while. If nowt doing I'll probably keep it and maybe try again later in the year.

Cheers

John

A lot of high end basses seem to not be shifting at the mo...I think it's just times are getting harsher right now.

I've rehearsals coming up in a few weeks so thought I'd give this another bump. Could do with a compact cab / combo or would consider cash offers. Failing that I might have to p/ex against something new.

I know I'm limiting my options - I've already had some interest from the Netherlands. I could always meet you at the Tyne ferry terminal... :)

Hey,

I have a fretted Energy 5-string with wooden neck and 34 inch scale which I would happily trade for your bass if you still open for trades. The only difficulty is that my bass is in Budapest Hungary. However, I have a friend who lives in London and is usually ready to help in cases like this. Write if you are interested. My e-mail is [email protected]

Thanks,

Gábor
