The bass feels like no other I've ever played and I receive compliments and praise of both it's sound and it's play-ability where ever I take it. The string spacing is tight (18mm bridge) and the neck is narrow, meaning you can fly around this fiver, and weighing in at the 9lb mark it's not too heavy and it's perfectly balanced with not a hint of dive. I've worn this around my neck for hours at a time and it certainly remains comfortable to play. The bass remains in tip top condition with
For those that don't know of Sander De Gier's work, I can tell you that his basses are of an excellent, world class quality. Mr De Gier produces boutique basses from quality materials that not only sound brilliant, but are extremely well thought out designs for working musicians. After owning this, I had him make me a P bass that is an utterly fantastic instrument also.
Trade wise I'm particularly interest in non-fender PJs, but feel free to try me with basses in a similar price range.
I'll be very sad to see this bass go. So, if I can't get the money I would like for it, it won't be leaving me.
Postage is NOT included in the above price and will be extra.
