    Hi all.
    I've had this Shergold Modulator bass for a while now. I know this series had interchangeable electronics to customise the sound but wondered what for? I haven't been able to work it out from the model I have and there is not enough posted online with regards to it.
    The image is upside down (sorry) but the extra switches can be seen in the top left.
    Also there is no serial number anywhere to be seen, not sure if the shaller machine heads have been moved down too far to allow for a drop tuning adjustment that you can't see it.

    Serial number should be stamped onto a metal plate screwed to back of headstock, at the top end ON AN ORIGINAL FACTORY BUILT. You MAY have got a bass assembled from NOS parts sold after the business closed in 1992. Want to sell it? I have 3 other Shergolds and might be interested...?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    nice bass! :)

    however, I'm not sure i understand the question... do you mean, why change the sound? or what were the options?

    Just to check you've seen the info on the fan site:

    I dunno. But I DIG that thing. It's like that Wal bass cousin that grew up in a bad neighborhood and joined a gang at age twelve...… in a good way. :bassist:
