Cort Gene Simmons GS-AXE-2 Bass RARE 5-String Version! KISS Signature Ax 112622
Description (more pics below)
This is a Cort Gene Simmons Axe 5-string bass. Amazing looking instrument, just outrageous. Perfect for a collector. I got this just like you see it. I have no info about the history of the bass. In researching it online, I find only 4-string versions of this Cort bass. Quite possibly an imitation made by a Chinese company, so I’m being up front about that. There is no serial number on the bass. It’s also possible Cort made some prototypes but never released this 5-string version.
Either way, it doesn’t diminish the coolness of this instrument, and how it would nicely round out the collection of a Gene Simmons or KISS freak out there. Bass plays and sounds great. Cosmetically it has one dinged corner (see pics). Also mild scuffing on back and other places, but overall looks pretty nice. Keep in mind Chinese made, so the paint is not some perfect Fender or Gibson job, but overall it nails the look of Gene’s Axe bass. Feel free to ask me any questions before buying. Pretty light weight at 8 pounds, 8 ounces. No case but I will pack it very well for shipping. This is the second one I have sold of these, and after this I have no more—they are very hard to find! (Details on my setups and packing at bottom.) Thanks!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
