    SOLD!


    Last of the basses that I'm going to sell for now - took me a while to convince myself to sell this one.

    This is a 2000 Status S1 Classic 5-String, but it's essentially new because the neck has just been redone by Status. When I bought the bass, the neck had a high spot on it because the previous owner had tweaked the neck in the wrong direction and broke the truss rod (Status rods work in the opposite direction of standard rods). Sent the neck back to Status, got a new neck (which costs $600). I specified very minimal preset relief so you can get the action VERY low without tweaking the rod (haven't touched it).

    Previous owner had the bass upgraded with Bartolini CB Dual Coil Soapbars & NTMB preamp - bass sounds HUGE. 34.75" scale, 18mm spacing at the bridge. Original Hiscox case (which is awesome and in excellent shape) w/key and warranty card/paperwork included. Bass has a few very tiny/minor nicks/scratches - barely visible.

    Specs:
    Body: Alder Back, Quilted Maple Top
    Neck: Carbon Graphite Composite
    Frets: 24
    Pickups: Bartolini CB Series Dual Coil
    Preamp: Bartolini NTMB
    Controls: Volume, Blend, Treble, Mid, Bass, 250/400/800 mid freq selector switch
    Scale: 34.75"
    Bridge Spacing: 18mm
    Weight: 9.3 lbs
    Strings: DR Hi-Beam Stainless 45-125

    Selling for $1700 + shipping. International shipping no problem, just PM for quote. Will also trade for a similar boutique 5-string w/34" scale (Zon Sonus Custom, Modulus Flea 5 + cash, Stambaugh/Benevente/Elrick, singlecuts, etc. Must be 34" scale, no exceptions. Thanks!

    I used to have an S2 classic, headless. Believe me when I say your gonna kick yourself on a regular basis for getting rid of this bass.

    Afraid not. The previous owner sold those off before I bought the bass. I honestly don't think the stock Status pickups could sound better than the Barts in here - they're perfect in this bass.
