Price or Trade Value : £1000.00

Considering moving on my Shuker 5 due to another bass purchase and don't really want 2 5 strings in the house.
In great condition with Shuker branded case.
Delano JMVC 5 split coil humbuckers.
Seymour Duncan STC3 preamp.
Thanks for looking.

Super duper!
Is the string spacing on the nut end equal for each string as in, could it be strung in reverse order without any mods?

The nut grooves are cut to accommodate the strings as shown but the grooves can be widened on the current top 2 to reverse the strings.

Not a fan of headless as a rule but that is rather nice.

It would be worth turning for that!
Double Bass, it's an airfix kit waiting to happen.

Thanks for the comments.
Only DBE stings on this as no to hold string at nut.

Hey Whynot,

Hello from New York!

I joined basschat just for this beauty you posted (and because of all the lefty content I discovered here). Anyway, if my numbers are correct your price would be about $1,250 USDs. If you would consider it, how much to ship across the pond?

Zip Code is: 11804

Hi guys, sorry I've only just seen the above recent messages.
I've withdrawn the sale as for various reasons as this has ended up being my go to bass for the past few weeks.
