Shergold Collection
1981 Shergold Marathon four string bass
A wonderful sounding and playing bass, which despite almost painfully simple electronics (only a volume and tone control!) still manages to produce great sounds - albeit a little quietly, and has pseudo stereo (see the models page for more information on the stereo arrangement). The neck profile is slightly smaller than my Modulator and is much better balanced for strap playing.
This is ex-factory stock that had been sat in the back room of Jacks' widows' house, since Jack passed on. The bass is believed to have been assembled and finished around 1991, but the neck serial number gives it a 1981 date.

Acquired by the Collection in January 1999
