I'm looking to change up the stable here with a reboot, so I am putting up 3 basses for sale, and will also consider some full and partial trades as well. First: W&T Chronos 35/5
This has been up before a few times and I've always pulled it back. It's an outstanding instrument. 35" B string is superb, and W&T founder Enrico Passini told me this bass has one of the best he has ever played as a luthier and former Fodera dealer.
I am looking for $2400 shipped in the US
, but will consider shipping elsewhere. This is a temporary reduction due to my finding something I want No trades for this at this price thanks.
Body : Alder with Alder/purpleheart toneblock (honestly, I don't know which piece is the toneblock lol. There is alder and purpleheart back there, make of it what you will)
Top : Indian Apple
Neck : 3 piece , Maple / Ash / Maple
Fretboard : Macassar Ebony
Preamp : Custom John East / W&T Design (vol, blend, bass boost/cut & treble boost/cut, mid boost/cut & mid sweep, active passive/tone) Passive tone is always on, which is pretty cool
Pickups : Christoph Dolf Dual Coils (bassculture.de)
Bridge : ETS Tuning Fork
Spacing : not 100% certain, but it looks like 18.3. It's very comfortable at any rate.
Tuners : Hipshot Ultralight
W&T gig bag
Some pics of it at my house, with my BB75 (not for sale): http://jim777.com/images/basses/woodtron/
I can take as many pics as folks want to see.
This is a review of this exact bass, not a similar one but the very same bass done by our own J. Wolf for Bass Musician magazine: http://bassmusicianmagazine.com/2010...5-string-bass/ Second : Roscoe Century Standard Plus 6
Great 6! This was brand spanking new in May and looks it. I wanted one for a long time and finally got one recently, but was already leaning in another direction before getting it. Plays great, sounds fantastic with a wide range of useable tones. This is a great chording and soloing bass and it's tough to put down when you start noodling on it $2000 shipped in the US
, but will consider shipping elsewhere.
3 piece maple neck with Wenge fretboard
Swamp Ash body with Cocobolo top
Bartolini pickups and pre (I will fill this out a bit later when I get home)
Roscoe gig bag
Some pics of this one here: http://jim777.com/images/basses/Roscoe/century6/ Third: Fender / Moses unlined fretless Jazz
This is a nice unlined fretless, that started life as a parts fretted Jazz with every single part brand new - and then I went and changed it up
OK, only 2 changes. I swapped out the brand new stacked knob jazz plate and knobs (included in the case should you want to swap themback in) for an Audere preamp, then swapped the neck for an unlined fretless Moses graphite neck. With black strings on it, it is very black indeed
This one ships in a nice hard case, not a gig bag. $600 shipped in the US
, but will consider shipping elsewhere.
MIM Fender Gloss black Jazz Body:
Fender Original black / white / back pick guard
Fender Original parchment / black / parchment pick guard
GOTOH 201 chrome bridge top loader
Bill Lawrence J45N and J45B pickups
Fender “F” neck plate, plastic plate gasket
Moses graphite unlined fretless neck (very good condition, though not as shiny new as the rest of the bass)
Audere preamp (Z something, it's 4 band with Z mode switch)
i need to get pics of this one with the Audere. this is it pre-Audere though: Trades
I will consider trades on all of these basses, both full and partial. I am not trading a $2700 bass for a 'rare color' $1200 bass though, just sayin'
Partial trades could be multiple basses for one (one of yours or one of mine) or a bass and cash to me. Shoot me a message I'm happy to chat.
All mine for - Fodera E5S, or Alembic Mark King Deluxe 5 with sig electronics.
Partial trades, basses I'd be interested in:
SR5's (maple board)
Roscoe Century 5's
Bongo 4 & 5's
Carvin BBs, SBs, and B24/25s
others that aren't occurring to me at the moment
Basically, I will consider any trade but I am not looking for any 6's. If I was sticking with 6's at the moment the Roscoe would be staying, no doubt about it.
So...thanks for reading! I know I am forgetting things here, so I will add those things as they are requested or I remember. Off the top of my head I do not have weights for any of these, so those numbers will be coming tonight.
