Shergold Collection
1984 Shergold Marathon eight string bass
Everyone should have one of these - if you've never tried an eight string bass go out now and try one - it's a revelation!
You would expect the action to be much more awkward than a normal bass, but it isn't. And the sound is just so rewarding - rich and full of overtones. Ordinary bass just doesn't seem the same now...
The condition of this bass is superb too, with only a few dents and scratches on the body, and perfectly set action.

Acquired by the Collection in November 2001
