just because we came across this subject in discussing classifieds in another forum (bassic.de if of interest), does anyone of you know for sure, if there had been custom string spacing options with the 20th century headless hardware?
I understand from flyers in the ressources section that with the tuners block and separate bridge opposite to the currently used per string tuner/bridge combos, all 4 Strings had 54mm overall 18mm between two strings and all 5 String models had 60mm overall / 15 mm between two strings.
Is there any known deviation from this rule or am I possibly mistaken and there is no such rule anyway?

Any suggestions on how I can a) stop it getting worse and/or b) repair it?
I have wondered the same. I had an early Stealth that was wood-cored, and had no truss rod. Probably a late 90's model. It too had pickups marked hyperactive, I believe. They sounded really good-- powerful and clear.
If I get an answer I'll post it here in reply. Sorry I do not know at this point.
Thanks for your quick reply and photo infographic . Back in 2010 I once had the Status Nylon Tapewounds on my Electro 4 5-string. Do you maybe know if these had the same thickness as the Labella's. They fitted just fine on bridge, nut and tuner.
Hope this helps ...........[img][/img]
Which brand and size would you think works and fits best, and why?
Thinking about the Labella 760N-B, don't why actually.
I own two Status basses, one is a 4-string Series 1 with bolt-on wooden neck and the other one is a 5-string Eclipe also with bolt-on wooden neck. The pickups on the series 1 have "hyperactive" printed thereon, while the pickups on the Eclipse say "Status", only.
I love the sound of the 4-string and bought the Eclipse expecting it to sound similar to the Series 1. However, having same strings and pickup height, the sound of the Series 1 is much crisper than the Eclipse.
Do you have an idea if the difference in sound is due to the larger mass of the 5-string neck or are the pickups different? I was hoping that the pickups / electronics are the same in both basses...
Any comments are appreciated.
Greetings from Germany!
My Granddad bought my Matrix V back in 1993 (i know because i have the reciept), and i kind of inherited it after he passed. It is still in great condition, however when I play out on any string, it starts fuzzing/buzzing - both through my amp (GK MB110) and Interface (Scarlett 2i2). The bottom 2 strings are worse than the other 3, but all of them have this problem if I play any louder than quiet. The bass being active, I don't know if this problem has something to do with the batteries, or maybe with the pickups? Either way, any diagnosis/help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
Did you take a look at our other site https://www.statii-catalogues.com?
There is a spec sheet for the S4000 which may help here https://www.statii-catalogues.com/pro...4000-specs
I am sure other members will chip it to help.
I am a new member, and I would confidently bet I am the worst bassist in the entire organisation.
I've just got my Status 4000 bass out of its case for the first time in years. A magnificent machine that really deserves a better owner...
My questions revolve around the specs for the guitar, and best practices for care and maintenance.
I bought it second-hand over two decades ago. It has no documentation. I'm not even sure what the controls do. [I have a Fender precision which is easy - just two knobs!]
I contacted Status who had no documentation on the bass either, and they pushed me in your direction!
If anyone out there can fill in any of these gaping gaps in my knowledge, I'd be delighted to hear from you.
What about the batteries for the pickups? It sounded pretty feeble after years of inactivity - but new batteries transformed everything. I presume the batteries should remain in-place? Or are they continually being connected/disconnected as the guitar is played or not played?
Basically anything anyone knows about the 4000 would be new to me. Thanks in advance!
On the subject of the Fender, that of course does not have battery pickups. But it too sounded quite feeble.
Pickups do not last forever do they? Any advice on pickup replacement/renewal? How long they last, recommendations for new ones...
