Since there is not much time and leeway when in fact times of service.

Here I once broke my rule and exchanged a 78'er Fender Jazz Bass Rickenbacker against this great Ric..

A deal with which both sides can be satisfied.


Lefty Alembic Coustom 5-string bass

Lefthand Alembic Custom 5-string Solid Black (USA)

Date of production: 1991

Do you know a bass player, who is not dreaming of a Alembic Series I or Series II bass? I think not. But this dream fails by the price of such a bass. And the lucky one, who keeps such an expensive bass with a value of a used car, don´t want to sell it any more.

So I couldn´t resist, when this bass was offered in Finland. But if you think, to ship a bass within the European Union is not a problem, forget it!

These Alembic Coustom bass was produced in 1991 and has a Series I body with Alembic Spoiler electronics. This bass is a monster. With its coustom case -the biggest one beside my Warwick Alien case- it is the heaviest unit I´ve evers seen.


.

Lefthand Fender Mustang Bass (USA)

Date of production: 1978

Fender Mustang basses are the connection between the Musicmaster and Precision basses.

Hofner Beatles Bass 500/1 lefty (Germany)

Date of production: 1965

Serial No. -.-

Old lefthanded Hofner Beatles Basses are rare. And if you find one, you have to pay a high price.

This bass came in 2006 into my house, but without a pickgaurd. So I tried to order one from Hofner / Germany.

I did all I can to get the right one. I send them pictures and measures of my bass, but after I got the 4th (!!!) wrong pickguard, I gave it up.

It seems they have many different measures during all the Beatles Bass area. In 2007 I got the original pickguard from a very nice bassplayer of the USA! Thanks again!


Lefthand Gibson EB-O  1969

I got this offer from a lefty and so I bought it, although this bass ins´t in a original condition.

However, it came with the original case.


Lefthand G&L SB-2SB-2SB-2

G&L SB-2 (special model)

Date of production: March 1992

Solid bass with a simple sound system. But I think George & Leo did a great job with the precision- and jazz-type G&L pickups. 1 Volume pot for each pickup. With these pots you can create a great spectrum of sounds.

Rosewood fretboard with 21 frets.

Lefthand Warwick Thumb 8string 2000

Warwick Thumb 8-string (bolt on)

Date of production: 2000

I love the sound of these basses with octave strings. So I couldn´t resist an offer from the German lefty bassplayer, Michael Klahn. He offers me to trade his Warwick Thumb 8-string coustom made bass for one of my lefty Fender MIJ Jazz basses.

I did some work adjusting the bridge and the neck position and I now have a real nice player!

Wow! The sound is phantastic! Warm and bright!

It has a great sunburst body and a maple neck.

Lefthand Fender Jazz Bass 1976

.

Fender Jazz Bass (USA)

Date of production: 1976

We came from Bremen on 31-05-02 and wanted to take a snack at the Musik Produktiv in Ibbenbüren / Germany. Then a short look into the "lefthand department" and as quickly as possible back home!
After we got our meal it happened:

There it was! A 76´ Fender Jazz Bass, Made in USA! Natural!! In an excellent condition! What then has happened, I can´t really remind by myself. All things that happend after this first sight, Sigi had to tell me afterward. I was so "drunken" from this moment on! Since it is a second-hand instrument, only cash was announced.

I paid a deposit and made thought about how I can get the remaining money from. (Of course! You will find almost such bargains, when you have no money next time!)

One week later I´ve been able to free the Jazz Bass from the claws of the MP. This bass is in a very good condition. You can recognise that a guitar player has played this bass only a few times (Pre-owner: "Kuddel", from the German Rockband "Die Toten Hosen". No damages, no scratches!

This Jazz bass sound bright and clear. (You know that rosewood necks let the bass sound much powerfull.) I think a good bassplayer will let this Jazz Bass sound like Marcus Miller.

I found it on internet when I was at home for a long time. I did some negotiations with the seller from England and got this bass in smmer 2006.

This bass features 3 Armstrong Burns Ultra Sonic pickups and a 4-way pickup selector.

This bass looks like 40 yeas of rock ´n roll!

On the backside of the headstocl is a label from "Frank Hassy Ltd.", Liverpool. Hessy´s was the first music store in Liverpool at the 60´s. Most of the famous bands from Liverpool (like The Beatles) went in and out of this store.

Lefthand Rickenbacker 4001    1972

.

Rickenbacker 4001


Date of production: April 1972


It was a left-handed Rickenbacker that I had been looking for a long time. This bass has got a chequered body binding and a stereo-output. I was given an offer which - I´m sorry - failed. That was a bitter experience for me but I learned from that.
When I went to the first owner I got pole-axed. In his cellar´s corner stood a Marshall-tower consisting of a JCM 800 Bass amp and two 4 x 12" cabinets.
I gave him my full adress. As soon as he wished to sell this tower, he should ring me up.
About one year later I phoned him to ask if it was for a sale. But it was sold.

.

Fender Precision Bass


Date of production: 05.02.1971


Volkmar Bornemann, once working at "Musik Produktiv Ibbenbüren," regularly flew to the USA in order to look for guitars for his Rare & Vintage Shop.
I myself at that time only played with my old Fender Precision. I exactly knew the price of this bass of 1964 and worried it might get lost. So I thought I should have a different Perci for everyday.
He did me a favour in summer 1993 and gave me this bass bought in New York, together with an original Fender-case from that time. This case has a great weight.

Lefthand Fender Precision Bass 1964

.

Fender Precision Bass (Pre CBS)


Date of production: 05.04.1964


This was my second bass and I´m proud of it! I borrowed some money from my brother and a neighbour of mine and fulfilled my dream. It did its best until I bought the Streamer Stage I.
The first, a Dynacord hollow-body bass I had given away. A short time later I regretted this very much and did all I could to see where it was. But it was lost. Since than I´ll never sell a guitar again!


Lefthand Blackwood Bluesmaster Bass

Blackwood Bluesmaster

Date of production: 2006

This is a wonderful copy of a Gibson EB-2. Who doesn't know this form and which Lefty hasn't searched the intenet for a lefthand Gibson EB-2. The isn't one, is there?
Going on with the Buesmaster.
Martin Scharde is distributing the brand Blackwood.

Martin visited me in spring 2007 and brought me 3 perfect lefthand basses including this Bluesmaster Bass. This Bass is something special for me because my wishes were even condsidered during planning. The Bluesmaster has a noble look. One has so much respeckt for the high brilliance lacquer that you remove all dangerous objects like watches, belt buckles and zippers. The neck can be played very good and the passive
BassLine-Pickups provides a solid sound. In comparison to my Dynacord Thinbody Bass it's a little bit heavier but the difference to a Solidbody-Bass isn't that big. Playing the bass felt familiar at once.


Höfner Beatless Bass 1967 1967 1967

Höfner Beatles (Violin-) Bass 500/1


Date of production:
1967
Serial-No: -.-

I was offered the "Höfner" by a colleague of mine in the early 80s, together with the original hardcase. He had got it from his uncle and didn´t know to make use of it. For playing it is - I must say -too light.
Even if it is a righthand-bass, it will never be sold!!


Lefthand Hohner PJ Bass 1990

Hohner PJ Bass


Date of production:
1990

I often found the Vester Bass in the room of my son, so I need to change my intention. Through contacts to other left hand bassists, I got the idea to collect autographs on the Vester Bass of the LH bassists I`ll meet myself. As the Vester Bass was not at my disposal, I need a new one. At that time the offer of the Hohner Bass was ok for me. I`ll hope many Lefty`s would perpetuate themselves. The first meetings are already planned.


Gibson

Gibson "Flying V" Bass


Date of production:
Feb. 25th,1982

There are bodystyles which have made history like the Gibson Flying V. Gibson started the production of the Flying V in 1958 and it is continued. Only the Flying V bass was built for a very short time (late 1981-1982!).This rare bass was built in Kalamazoo / USA.

He has a mahogany body and a maple neck guled into the body´s neck pocket. 2 Gibson humbucking pickups.

Gibson told me that this bass was never produced for lefthanded bassists! So I had to buy this one.

Gibson only produced 375 Flying V basses!!!
