Epiphone Thunderbird IV Pro
These Epi basses are great value- this one even has genuine Gibson pickups! Thru-neck, 2 meaty thunderbird pickups, 3-point bridge with all the adjustability you need. Great condition, and is indeed thunderous!
1968 Gibson EB0 Bass
Mudbucker fans- rejoice! As seen in the hands of Jack Bruce and Thom Yorke amongst others, this 30.5" scale beast has all the thumpy low end you could ask for and is gorgeous to play- and to see! Wonderful lacquer checking, nice aging to the MOP logo and 'Top Hat' knobs- a great vintage feel and vibe without any structural issues. A wonderful instrument, and includes a newer hardshell case.
Fender Jazz Bass MIM Standard 2007
A proper utilitarian J-bass here- nice, fairly light Poplar body, 60's inspired pickup placement and classic 4-saddle bridge setup, and all the scoop or punch you need from the 2 single-coil pickups. Lovely, easy-to-play 'C' profile neck with that skinny nut width, and a lovely dark rosewood board. Replaced pearloid pickguard, and a fair few dings here and there, including some finish peeling on the butt (but out of sight). A great player for little dosh!
Sceptre Desoto Custom active bass
Fantastic quality here- lovely satin finish neck, active electronics, gorgeous trans red finish. Looks and plays great, and as versatile as they come. A great mid-level Jazz bass designed by Gary Levinson!
Fender Precision Special 1980 Candy Apple Red
Released in conjuction with 'The Strat', this souped-up P-bass features an active, 2-band EQ preamp (though it can be used in passive mode also), and very striking brass bridge/gold hardware combo- even down to the thumb-rest! Easy to play thanks to the specially reinstated '61 B-profile neck, this is a pretty chunky bit of vintage Fender history! There's a fair few knicks and dings to the finish- showing through to the gorgeous metallic undercoats! In player's grade condition with a non-original hardcase.
Arbiter 'SG/Melody Maker' Shortscale bass 1970's
Certainly an odd little guy. but plays very well and sounds surprisingly big! Easy as pie to play thanks to the shorter scale, and pretty versatile thanks to the 2 switchable pickups! Being so lightweight too, this is a great way to get a funky vintage piece for little money! All the usual dings that you'd expect from a 40+yr old instrument. Super cool!
WEM Rapier left-handed bass 60's made in England
Seemingly super rare- can't find too much info about this but we'll update as we do! What we know- a cracking, vintage England-built shortscale bass with character in spades! Perfect for more muted, r 'n b & blues sounds, and it's hugely playable. Signs of age, as one would expect, but in overall good condition!
G&L Tribute L-2000 refin
A ground-shaking beast, and reassuringly weighty too... monstrous tones thanks to the pair of G&L Magnetic Field Design™ humbuckers backed by the flexible Tri-Tone™ control system. The Tri-Tone system features a trio of mini toggles for pickup selection, series/parallel signal routing and active/passive operation, as well as a trio of knobs for volume, treble and bass. Seriously robust saddlelock bridge- just an overall beastly bass! This one's had a refin in metallic blue- a DIY job but good overall, a bit of orange peeling here and there.
Baldwin (Burns) Shadows bass '65-'70
A real rarity! Designed to keep up the uniform-nature of The Shadows after Hank had his signature guitar built, this was designed for John Rostill, with a short run being built by Baldwin from '65-'70. An unusual through-body design, and that classic multi-guard Burns styling. It's showing signs of age as you'd expect, but in full working condition.
