  1. Made the mistake of playing this again and now I'm getting cold feet. Withdrawn for now...
  2. I've owned this bass for about four years and I've really enjoyed it. Of late - it's spending a lot of time in the rack as I've began favouring five strings... This is a great sounding bass and the build quality is immense. I replaced the P pickup with a BB2024 equivalent ordered from Yamaha. I have the original pickup which will be included in the sale. The BB2024 pup is hotter than the original, but the original one is fine and works great. The tuners are also replacement Schallers. It's in 8/10 condition. A few dings here and there but nothing significant. There is a small part of the decal that has flaked off. Weight is 3.95kg Made in Japan - 1984 Don't have the original case or any hardcase for that matter but I can ship in a Ritter gig bag + sturdy box and plenty of packaging. I'll take a number of better pictures when there's a bit of sunlight as the black sparkle finish is really great and these images don't really do the bass any justice.
  3. A fine set of the much coveted (and discontinued) Wizard ‘84 Jazz p’ups. £100 posted to your UK address.
  4. A set of tuning machines that have come off my nineties Fender Japan Jazz Bass (I’ve replaced these with Res-o-lites). They’re a little road-worn but functioning properly. £60 posted to your UK address. PRICE DROP - £50

  9. J purchased my TRB-P. A perfect Basschat transaction - fast comms and fast payment. Top chap.
  10. Wow - thanks for the info and the links. I’ll amend the advert 😊👍
  11. I recently acquired this fine bass on this forum. I've had a recent influx of 5 stringers and unfortunately they can't (or probably shouldn't) all stay. The workmanship and quality of this bass is phenomenal. It's also astoundingly lightweight (3.9KG). I may decide to hang on to this if my TRB-5P (also advertised here) sells. This bass is in mint condition - looks unplayed. The frets look new. It's setup well and a super low action can be obtained without any buzz. The specs are documented in previous threads (see below). There is a discrepancy in the listed pickups between previous sales threads however, as indicated by previous owner - these are highly likely to be ‘big splits’. Key Specs: 34" scale 17-19mm spacing at bridge 45mm at nut 3.9kg Buckeye burl top / Alder body / 5pc maple neck Shuker Hiscox case included. Preamp - vol (push / pull for active-passive), p'up pan, treble, stacked mid & mid freq, bass. Description from Shuker website: The Singlecut is ergonomically designed with a semi-curve top and heavy rear carving to make a very comfortable bass with no restrictions on playability. The upper bout continues to around the 12th fret and is carved at the rear to maintain a slim neck profile. The added stability this adds to the neck means the lower bout can be carved in deeper to allow access to up to 26 frets and couple to the laminated and carbon fibre reinforced neck achieves a noticeable increase in sustain and harmonic content.

  12. What about items that have been dispatched by private sellers already (in 2020) that are unlikely to cross the border until the new year?
