I have thought about this long and hard and she has to go to a good home. She has been sat in a corner since I got the Status Buzzard and that ain't fair on this quite remarkable instrument.
Got her last year from NY. Built in 2003 and I am the only owner. She was based on an Essence, but with a MASSIVE upgrade! Here is the spec:

top and back: Flame Maple
accents: Purpleheart laminate and Maple pinstripe
body: Walnut
neck: 5-piece Maple and Purpleheart
scale: 34" long
fingerboard: Ebony
inlays: Mother of Pearl
body shape: Exploiter
construction: Hollow core
electronics: "Signature" volume, pan, filter x2, Q-switch x2, mono outout
finish: Polyester gloss body, satin neck
tailpiece: Solid brass bird
birthday: December 5, 2003
originally made for: Joey G's Music

She comes in an Alembic hard case with the various tools needed for adjustments and she is in PERFECT condition - you want the sound of The Ox from the 70's? Here it is!

To buy this bass new, to the above specs, would be $9250 + $200 (case) + $150 (shipping) =$9600. This equates to 5844.51. THEN (for the UK) you have to add 20% for import duties and V.A.T (1168.90) - a grand total of 7013.41 to buy this beast new.
I am looking for 4000/E4455 for a quick sale (a near 45% saving!) and any serious offers will be carefully considered. I'm not desperate for cash so I can wait for the right deal.
Payment by cash or bankers draft (item sent after funds cleared of course). Postage and packing is included to UK mainland, but will post to Europe.

Here are links to video's (all Who tracks!) I have made with her so you can see and hear her in action.
