HOLY COW! IT'S THE
 BAT BASS

Fender Squier body & electrics with a relic'd no-name maple neck

 TOTALLY UNIQUE

I listed this on Thursday but I've just had notification that it was removed because Fender had reported it as counterfeit - so I'm relisting it here & to reiterate this is definitely & categorically NOT a Fender Ker Pow! Bass that was Made in Gotham City. It is a Bat Bass made in Bedfordshire . . .

It is in fact a truly unique bass built by myself as I've always liked the idea of decoupaging an old Batman comic onto a bass, & this one is a genuine 1971 comic. In a nutshell, the process involves cutting out the comic & sticking it all over the body with PVA glue & then spraying clear lacquer over the top to give protection. I also commissioned a unique engraved scratchplate plus a bespoke headstock decal that's also lacquered & looks quite the part!

Built around a fully loaded Squier Precision body & a no-name maple neck with neck adjustment at the heel, this is NOT a new bass & it was finished by hand so it does have some marks to it, along with the odd crease where the comic has been wrapped & stuck to the edges of the body - which is only natural! - but nothing at all that affects its playability! I'm sure this would not be your 'go to' bass but it certainly works & sounds like a P should - the action is medium being around 2mm at the 12th fret, plus no heavyweight either, weighing in at just under 4kg according to my bathroom scales.

I would positively urge you to come & try him out before the auction ends to satisfy yourself he's as good as I think he is!









All photographs are of the actual bass - please examine them closely as they form part of the description, as I'm sure I don't need to explain that you are not buying a brand new bass & he has a hand-applied finish but I confirm all works as it should. I've tried to accurately represent him in these photographs, but he really does look better in the flesh!

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or would like to come & have a play on him - I'm very near Bedford in MK40 - just drop me a message via ebay; send me an Email to ebay@tim-allen.co.uk or give me a call on 07.44.639.44.55 - but no text messages please.

I have deliberately NOT included a Buy It Now Price as I am prepared to let the auction run its course.

Payment preferred by cash on collection or bank transfer, but PayPal will be accepted as a last resort if you are unable to collect in person.

Although I cannot arrange a courier myself I am happy to securely bubble wrap & box him up if you wish to arrange your own courier - I work from home so am very flexible on collection.

THE SMALL PRINT:
This is an auction, so you are bidding to buy (!) - I have listed this bass as accurately as possible. I do NOT accept returns unless you find this description to be inaccurate e.g. this is a Squier loaded body with a no-name maple neck; it is hand-finished but functions as it should. If you find that I have led you up the garden path & all is not as I have stated then I will gladly refund your purchase price; but if you bid & win the auction I do not accept returns because you have changed your mind & decide you don't want it! I'm an individual, not a business, & am not selling this on eBay so you can try it out AFTER you have won this auction! This is a UK only sale & eBayer's with feedback less than 10 & poor payment history must contact me first otherwise your bid will be automatically blocked. None intended, but recent non-payment issues have forced my hand to include this bit - I'm a straight-forward & honest seller - I expect you to be a straight-forward & honest buyer. Simples.

Please also note that she is advertised for sale elsewhere so this auction may end early. 



I have been a trusted ebayer for over nine years & value my 100% feedback - so you can be sure my word is good.

Many thanks, Tim.
