  1. Excellent instrument with the following specs:

    Wood & Tronics Zoid
    5 String 33 inch scale Tuned EADGC [100,80,60,40,25 Fodera Strings]
    17.5 mm Spacing at Bridge
    American Black Walnut Body
    American Holly Top with matching headstock
    Alder tone block with figured poplar top
    3 piece ash neck
    ebony fingerboard
    brass nut
    ebon Ramp
    ebony knobs & pick up covers
    Bassculture pick ups
    John East SP2 preamp Vol, Bal, Bass, Mids, Treble, Passive/Active, tone knob

    The bass is a fantastic instrument in almost brand new condition, practically unplayed as they guy i bought it from had to sell due to injury shortly after he took delivery. Lowest action i have ever seen on a bass possible; the strings lower until they rest on all frets pretty much all at once, can't imagine a bass with lower action. The ramp is currently off and is designed to be held on with double sided tape, so can easily be taken off if you don't fancy a ramp and it will leave no mark whatsoever.

    The bass has so much tonal character. I hate to use such cliches, however notes really do jump off the fretboard and are almost piano like at times. I haven't heard or played with Bassculture pickups before but they are really nice and look great with the wood covers.The preamp is superb; 3 band eq on top and dip switches inside to control mid frequency/range and trim pots to set the bass and treble frequency. Passive mode is great and the passive tone knob is a great feature. The Holly top is a lovely cream colour in real life and is just lovely. Comes with the factory supplied Warwick Rockcase and truss rod keys, also the original order documentation.

    Contacted Enrico last week and the bass would cost 3400 euros new today and there is a 6 month or so waiting list. The bass is in mint condition and only a year old so it's a great chance to own as close to a custom order from Wood and Tronics as possible.

    $3000 shipped CONUS. This bass is located in the UK and I will ship to most places, contact me for other currencies/prices. Bank transfer and Paypal good. I am a well known member on Basschat forums as 'Kev' and have 131 Feedback as 'Purpleblackduck' on eBay, so buy with confidence :). Also listed on UK/Europe eBay here for reference:

    If my Elrick sold I would grab this, these are fantastic basses :)
  6. I'd have to check the nut width but the string spacing at the nut is 8.3mm, and the bridge 17.5mm. The neck is ultra fine satin finished and is fast, effortless to play, pleasing width and slim but not too slim. Medium frets, Schaller machines and abalone fret markers.

    Thanks for the kind comments :) Good luck with the Elrick sale!
  7. The nut width is 1 and 3/4 inches according to my ruler :)

    With regards to trades, i am not really looking for a trade, unless you have a 4 or 5 string Roscoe :)
  8. Price drop, $2850 shipped
  9. Bump :)

    This current listing has 6 days left. If there was a previous buyer they must've backed out.

    I hope this question doesn't seem foolish and maybe my fellow TBers can give me some accurate information on this topic. I have been checking this bass out dailey and just absolutely love it. I am hesitant however to do anything because I am not remotely familiar with the customs process that may be involved in buying it. Living here in the US and the buyer being in the UK, does anybody know what fees and more importantly who gets paid and how do they get paid would be associated with buying this? My apologies if this is not the appropriate place to inquire. Just a beautiful instrument. Love holly top basses. So classy. Thanks and of course good luck with the sale. Peace JP
  16. Just had a look on for you.

    Based on $2850, the duty and processing fee should be in the region of $167.50, so basically it should cost the same as my original asking price :)

    Hope this helps!
  17. Up
  18. I need to move this now as debts are catching up to me, offers please :)
  19. Trade pending, thanks for interest.
