Hey guys,
I am selling a Vox Custom 3002 Bass with original wooden hard case. I'm looking at £450 for both.

I've had this bass for 11 years and have barely touched it in the last 9 or 10 so I decided it should go to a good home where it will actually get some use. I thought I'd post it on here to see if there was any interest before I put it on the Bay.

I'm not sure of the year of manufacture but as far as I know these were only made between 1982 and 1984 at Aria's Matsumoku factory and, as a consequence, are pretty rare.

Everything on the bass is original apart from the nut. They came with a brass nut but (from what I've read and as was the case with mine) the top edge of the nut had a tendency to wear down over time and the E-string would pop out if you hit it too hard. I had the brass nut changed for a graphite one not long after I got it.


Spec:
34" scale.
24 frets.
Through-neck.
DiMarzio pickups.
Volume and single tone control.
3-way pickup selector.
Mode switch for series/parallel or coil tap.
Deluxe bridge and tailpiece assembly.
String-through body.

From the little info I could find, I found out that Billy Sheehan played one for a short time whilst he was playing with UFO.
