Made by the best luthier in London - Martin Peterson. I have had numerous Sei basses and this one is top notch in craftsmanship. You wont be let down. Absolutely excellent condition. I found no dings or scratches although it is used. t is pretty close to new looking. This will be the one that got away from me and I will regret losing it but I just don't play as much anymore. Has ultra silky satin finish over exotic woods. Well balanced with no neck dive. These are rare in the U.S. and you would have to pay big for shipping and “duty” taxes. I MAY consider shipping overseas. MAYBE. 34 inch scale neck. Buy with confidence – my EBAY rating has over 770 positive reviews.

    · High end woods – highly figured claro walnut on front AND back which is rare, swamp ash body core, 7 piece neck with wenge and maple give tone galore.

    · Neck thru body for better tone and sustain

    · Phenolic nut with John East preamp

    · Gotoh tuners

    · Scrolling pickup selector gives you any tone quickly.

    · 3 band active eq gives you tonal change on the fly

    · Unique sweepable midrange

    · Easily adjustable ABM bridge but you wont need too since the action is so nice

    · back of neck is nice and flat for more natural quick easy playing.



    Low ultra easy action with plenty of room for slapping.

    · This bass gets serious tone and any sound you want between the woods, active EQ and sweepable eq with 2 volume knobs so you can eailsy control each pickup

    · Comes with hard shell case in pic.

    · Has strap locks and hard shell case

    · Selling locally so could go at any time.

    · Excelent CONDITION

    · I’m in no hurry to sell so not interested in lowballs. We all have those basses that got away – this one will be that for me.

    Sir, The ad doesn't say London is exotic but that the woods are. Although I've never been there so maybe it is to me .lol
     
  6. Sorry if I offended you, I was trying to be funny as the ad said something like exotic woods from London or something. I grew up a couple hours away by train ride so in my mind London or Berlin are the last places you would consider exotic.

    Oops. supposed I didn't list that. Armstrong pickups with a John East preamp. Sounds great. I have had many high end basses, including Drozd, Warrior, Real Tobias, Benevente and Marleaux (which I am also currently selling). These pickups are HIGHLY responsive to where you place your right hand giving you any tone you want.

    just double checked and it looks to me to be 19mm string spacing at the bridge cuz it feels wider than my other 17. There is plenty of space between the strings for advanced right hand technique. Hope that helps.

    Just remembered this also has 2 midrange frequency controls - one is sweepable.
