    Superb Status Shark 4 string fretted / Cherry wood body / rosewood F/Board. Recently upgraded with new Genuine Status 20 indent 220k Vol / tone pots, New Status black alloy knobs, new Status Jack socket, new Status Scratch plate, and fitted with a new set of Status Hotwires halfwounds. The parts and labour alone came to £125 ( $240 ?? ). Built around 1995 according to Rob Greene of Status. Sale price is $800 OBO - roughly £380/£390 GBP. This includes a BASS CENTRE padded case. Moneygram seems to be the best method of payment, as i have already used this to buy some gear on EBAY USA when the seller wouldnt ship outside the US and got a friend in OLNEY, MARYLAND to buy and ship for me. I used THOMAS COOK ( a travel agent here ) in WITNEY, OXFORDSHIRE, UK.
    I'll put the 2 smallest file size photos here and link the others that are a bit too large. Thanks, Pete.

    .. Shouldn't you put the string inside the tuner?

    You know. You stick the string inside the tuning peg. I'm pretty sure most bass tuners do that.

    Not this again. Dude, if you have nothing to add to the classified listing, say nothing at all. :rollno:

    Good luck with the sale, BTW.

    Thanks Hurley - no bites yet. Must be those darn tuning pegs :crying:


    :p

    PS the spare windings at the ends have been snipped off, just in case anyone points out that they can damage something/someone :D
