STATUS Series2000 Sno:432
For sale is a STATUS Series 2000 Four String / Fretted SNo: 432
TB42 Electronics with switch between EQ or Flat response.
This is the later version of the bass with a through-body woven graphite neck, phenolic fingerboard.
A woven carbon graphite outer shell / rock maple core.
Two Status Hyperactive Hi Resolution pickups.
Colour is black/gold hardware with a beautiful golden graphite weave.

I've owned this bass around 6/7 years. I bought it via Ebay from a chap in the UK which is where I am too.
I was looking for that particular Mark King Status sound but this one sounded very different, very bright, almost JD-like.
Comparing the circuit with my other S2000 TB4 it was apparent the circuit had been modified.
I bought a new TB42 from Rob but couldn't fit it myself due to a metric / imperial difference in the pot spacings.
The bass also had a curious small internal rattle.

So I decided to let Rob Green look at the bass, modify the holes, fit the circuit and diagnose the rattle.

I got the bass back recently and it now sounds fantastic: like a Series 2000! It plays far better too after a fret skim/level and proper set-up.

After inspection Rob has no idea what the internal rattle is, but is satisfied that there is no structural issues that will affect the bass or its playability in the future.
I can supply emails that confirm this if required.
Rob also fitted new gold strap pins that are more in keeping with the hardware as I never liked the black ones which were badly scuffed, and a new jack output socket.

Also included is a lovely padded gig bag that can be seen in the included photos.
There are some scratches and chips on the body present since I bought the bass that can also be seen in photos on request.

Looking for around £1400 with serious offers considered.
A swap for a Series 2000 fretless also considered.
Prefer not to ship overseas.

Lovely Bass, I'm tempted but I'm really looking for an SII.

Lovely but just too much dollar Shock
I must point out that some of those photos showing the back of the bass have window/light reflections.
Those are not marks on the bass.
There are little chips on the rear top edge as seen in one pic and light scratches on the bottom edge directly under the Volume knob.
There are no scratches on the fretboard end, left/right of the string retainer; again it's reflection.
I'll also point out these were all present when I bought the bass.

There is a short video of me playing the bass after it was fixed up by Rob Green.

Pricing seems an issue so what would you guys suggest to get a sale?
