Price or Trade Value : £2000

With much regret, as part of my gear cull this too has to go.

Beautiful example of these great basses...I'm having to face up to the reality that I have too many basses and give somebody else the opportunity to own this - hopefully it will get used rather than sitting in it's GB Hiscox case under my bed.

Purchased here from Gunsfreddy I've hardly used it though its had a couple of outings to Bashes and been use at home - I haven't gigged it.

Currently wearing Status 35-90 strings which Bernie installed when he set it up.

Photos here but are a bit out of date:

Weighs about 8LBs and is beautifully balanced.

Reality check - 12 basses IS apparently too many...I need to look at what I "need" not just what I "want"..

Absolutely stunning

Still my all time favourite bass.. Played many but never owned one. Price even second hand is beyond my reach. The Rumour is a defo the ultimate 'will have one some day' bass.

Fantastic bass for the money - everybody who's played this will agree. Laurence Cottle has the same bass which he's used on many projects.

Will consider p/x - Kingbass is my first choice but try me (no Fenders thanks)..
