REVERSE AUCTION ITEM #7

OVERWATER ORIGINAL SERIES ‘PATRIOT’

We commissioned 3 of this iconic instrument that Overwater offered in the 1970’s/80’s…but with modern updates and improvements. These are, unashamedly, rock machines and probably not for the more ‘conservative’ bassist. We’re talking ‘John Entwistle’ territory’ here! Our three ‘Patriots’ are the only new ones available anywhere…on the planet! They play and sound superb…trust us!

Day 1 price: £1999 (Was £2250. List £2400.)
Day 2 price: £1889 (Was £2250. List £2400.)
Day 3 price: £1829 (Was £2250. List £2400.)

REVERSE AUCTION ITEM #6

G&L USA Custom Shop M-2000 (Midnight Blue Metallic)

This is the model with the studio quality (v. quiet) 18v preamp and simpler, more intuitive control layout to the L-2000 model which has been around sine the late 70’s. The MFD humbucking pickups on the M-2000 are voiced differently to the L-2000 as well. These are big sounding, tonally versatile basses and come with a hardcase and 10 year G&L warranty… oh and a certificate signed by Mrs Leo Fender (since it was her husband who designed G&L instruments). Not available anywhere else in the UK.

Day 1 Price: £1475 (Was £1549. List £2083).
Day 2 Price: £1429 (Was £1549. List £2083).
Day 3 Price: £1389 (Was £1549. List £2083).
