Hand made headless neck through 6-string electric bass guitar

So I may not be able to reply immediately to any messages, but I will try to get back to you within 24 hours if possible. I appreciate it's a bit of a put-off as collection only, however at present I don't have any way of securely packaging the guitar, so I'm afraid it will have to remain as collection only for the time being. Another of my hand-made guitars up for sale here.

This one is an extra-long scale headless 6-string bass with neck-thru construction and a pair of passive soapbar pickups. Used for a few years but styles and bands have changed so now it needs a new home to avoid gathering dust. The neck is primarily mahogany (quarter sawn for stability), with wenge "stringers" and maple accent lines to contrast.

It has a wenge fretboard with a flat profile, brass position markers and 24 jumbo frets. The body wings are bubinga, and the whole bass is finished with hand-rubbed Danish oil. Access to the truss rods (there are two, for strength and adjustability) is at the body end of the neck. It's not the lightest of basses, but that's the payoff with nicer tonewoods. Bridge, tailpiece and headpiece are ETS try getting hold of that nowadays!

In natural brass finish, with adjustable string spacing between approximately 15.5mm to 17.5mm string-to-string; it's currently set at its widest. Pickups are a pair of passive soapbars (approx 16k output each) attached to a 3-way rotary selector switch and master volume and tone controls.

Both pots are also push-pull switches to coil-split the pickups for a range of humbucking and single-coil sounds. Condition is fairly well used - the bass was made 10 years ago and was quite regularly gigged and recorded for several years, so there's plenty of marks and scuffs to be found. I play in dive bars; nothing's going to stay pristine for long!

But I've given it a good setup so it plays nicely with a good low action. This will be by collection only from the Leicester area - I've had too many bad experiences with couriers and musical instruments to risk posting it.
