  1. 1982 Fender Precision Special, ash body, rosewood neck. The color would have been Arctic White according to the catalog, but as you can see this bass has seen it all – I got it from the first owner - a session musician, who did play on it every day for almost 40 years and it shows. I do not know where to start with the roadworn part, but as can be seen – finish is worn almost everywhere, lacquer on the neck is gone in many places, there are numerous bumps, dings, dongs, etc. (luckily surface, no structural damage), pickguard is cracked near the jack, finger rest has been relocated, fingerboard and frets are also worn from playing, etc. etc. – all this is shown in the photos. Now the good part – the bass sounds tremendous, I was skeptical towards the Precision Special model and went to check it out only because it look extremely road worn (which in my book is always good), and walked away with it. The action is nice (truss rod has some more space) although the frets are a little worn (if you are picky there is room to have them polished/crowned), the neck has a very comfy beefy C shape profile. Best part is the sound – I admit that always use it in passive mode and it sounds huge – responsive, lots of everything - lows, mids and highs – a very full sounding bass, a bit like a 70s, but not so clanky. Active mode is also nice if you are into this. It is all original apart form 2 screws as far as I am aware, all relicing is natural, weight is 5,05kg, nut width is 42mm., all hardware and electronics work as they are supposed to. More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/WPTdiHeXBmHbDgPZ8x` I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. The asking price is what it costed me, but sensible offers can be considered. No trades, I am afraid, unless it is a well played pre-1974 precision or recent B-15. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees. It comes with the original case it was purchased with – Fender “Duck foot” Tweed case (sold more with Fullerton reissues) which is in crooked condition, but if you do not want it – I can knock down 70 pounds off the price. Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU. You can check my feedback here -
  2. 1983 Squire JV Precision bass, candy apple red, rosewood board. All original domestic JV, alder body, relatively light – 3,9kg. As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows some dings and dongs here and there, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in more than perfect functional condition: neck is straight as an arrow with minimal truss rod tension (it has a loooot more room to go), also the neck is extremely comfortable at 42mm at the nut and the playability is to die for – out of 12 precisions that I possess incl. very nice vintage fenders, this is the most comfortable to play: super nice neck profile (flat, but not too much) and extremely low action. This is also the last JV I have and the best compared to all the others I had over the years (around 10 if I remember correctly). With flats it does the Motown job, with rounds it sounds deep but aggressive. More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/1AJdmjTWwmQ3Qi7R9 Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. I am aware the asking price is not among the cheapest – I have sold JVs here for 500 pounds some years ago, but am also not quite sure I want to let this one go, so if it doesn’t sell for this, I’ll be happy to keep it. Plus - try to find a CAR with rosewood board - it took me close to a decade. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees. Any questions – please, feel free to ask.

  3. PRICE DROP - NOW £2050 or sensible offer 1990 Fender Custom shop fretless Jazz Bass. As you can expect from a John Page era custom shop bass – a superb instrument and one of the earliest Fender fretless jazz basses that I have seen from Fender (after the extremely rare ones from the 70s). As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows a lot of dings and dongs, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in perfect functional condition: straight neck with more place in the truss rod to adjust (it is not maxed out), all electronics and hardware work accordingly, action can be set very nice and low. The bass is superbly responsive, resonates extremely well with great dynamics and the harmonics are just amazing – it both sings and does the “mwah” just as well. I have not made any attempts to renew the hardware (remove the patina), because IMHO it gives it character, but if you wish my bass tech can do that prior to shipping. Width at nut is 38mm and the bass weights 4,07kg. according to my home scale. It comes with a black tolex case, probably not original.

  13. [quote name='fluffo' timestamp='1494523128' post='3296762'] Does the truss rod still work although at full tension and curved. [/quote] Yes, the rod works. Cheers
  14. SOLD - pending the usual. Early example of JV production, dated 07.1982. As close to a Pre CBS as it gets without cracking the bank - wide and shallow maple neck with rosewood fretboard (around 43,5mm at the nut), beautiful grain Sen ash body, deep red tort guard, and in my oppinion sounding closer to a 60's P than most of the other reissues - it just delivers the deep growl and the nice bootom lows. Threaded bridge saddles, cloth wire, high ratio Kluson style tuners, AlNiCo pickup, brass plate, tight neck pocket, etc. All original (except a Switchcraft jack - I suppose it did not come from the factory with it) with lots of play wear – small and big scuffs, dings and bumps can be seen all over with the biggest one at the bottom of the body just bellow the jack. Frets look like they have a lot more life ahead of them and elctronics work perfectly. The E tuner stem is slightly bent. THE BAD - the truss rod is maxed out and still I can not achieve the super low action I am after. With standart 45 roundwounds the actions is more to the mid to high. If you can live with that than great, I am used to playing with extremely low action. Was planning to get it to my bass tech but do not the time to deal with that. If you can live with 40 roundwounds I the suppose action can get better. Detailed photos of the bass can be found here: [url="https://goo.gl/photos/Xeumndbcms6kmSqG8"]https://goo.gl/photo...umndbcms6kmSqG8[/url] Given what they go for without the neck issue my price is SOLD. Shipping to UK and most of EU is usually around £30. Comes with its original brown leather gig bag and will be shipped well packed in a cardboard box. I will ship from Bulgaria so there will be no import taxes for EU buyers. Money transfers through PayPal or bank. Feel free to ask me any additional questions or demand additional photos/videos. Delivery usually takes around 7 working days to the UK and most of EU. My feedback can be found here: [url="http://basschat.co.u..._1#entry2610067"]http://basschat.co.u..._1#entry2610067[/url] Not looking for trades for this one. Regards
