  1. The Farida FJB20 is the top spec model that Farida make. Its definitely a step up in quality over the FJB6. The pickups are fantastic on this as are the necks. I suspect this may be my old one i sold recently. If so i can thoroughly recomend it.
  2. Peety must of forgot to mark this as Sold. I bought it a few weeks ago. Maybe the Mods can mark this as sold
  3. I probably will regret it Marti T but i have my eye on something so unfortunately i need to make space for a potential incoming and thin down my Yamaha herd.
  4. Yamaha BB 1024x in excellent condition. Usual Yamaha top notch Build quality. Massive sound from this. The front pick up nails the P tone and the rear pickup is loud enough to gig on its own and does a great Jazz impression. Used this for gigs and rehersals and its never let me down. Always got compliments on its sound and looks. Especially when the P and J are used together which is real sweet spot. Comes with a Yamaha Hard Case. Can deliver or meet up in North West. Can courrier at buyers expense. Intrested in trades for Fender P Deluxe With cash either way
  5. Been playing this at home for a few days. It really is a great Jazz Bass and nails that sound perfectly. Stings sound as if they may need replacing.If i was after a very bright toppy tone, so i have decided to reduced the price to £200. Think anyone would struggle to find a better Jazz at this price.
  6. Trade options added for 4 string Bass, lightweight bass cab or Active subwoofer. All offers considered.
  7. I bought a 70s Classic Vibe Precision on here to see if i could get along with a Precision. I liked it so much that i bought a Fender player series precision. The Fender has better pickups, tuners etc but the Squier just feels a bit nicer to play. I bought the squier on here and it was really well set up on arrival and i just clicked with it I may eventually settle on the Fender but for now am giving them both a lot of playing time and the squier more than holds it own.
  8. I think the BB424X is my favourite of the lot. It strung with flat wound chromes and the first time i used them on this bass it was exactly the sound i have been hearing in my head. Tried the same strings on a precision and they dont sound as good as they do on the 424x. Got Thomastic TI jazz flats on the BB1024X and its give the bass a bunp up the pecking order. This has a better bridge, nut, pickups and neck construction. They do sound very similar but i think the better components will hopefully give the bass a better/easier life. The BB734 is very versatile and you can get so many good useable sounds from it. Its also lighter the 424/1024x. The 414 has a thinner neck than the others. Is lighter than the 424/1024x. Its very punchy and sounds great for Rock covers. Think there all made in in Indonesia but there all reslky well put together. Overall though the 424x is my very slight favourite. You cant go wrong with any of them.
  9. Currently own BB414 BB424x BB1024X BB734A Used to own a BB100s and a BB604
  10. I had one of these many years ago. It was Brilliant. If my house wasnt swamped with basses i would love another one.
  11. Bought a P Bass on here so need to move this. This is top of the Range Farida FJB20 Jazz bass. These were made in the same factory as the first batch of Squier CV basses. The quality is top notch. These have been well discussed on here a few years ago with people claiming they were better than Mexican Fenders and not far off American models. With only playing Yamaha basses i cant compare with a Fender. It plays and sounds fantastic. Set up with a Really low action. Few marks on the body but nothing that affects the guitar. Collection, meet up or possibly deliver in the North West. Can arrange for courrier delivery. Trade options or part Exchange considered. as long as it has 4 strings, Frets and no pointy headstock. Also interested in Active subwoofer or lightweight bass cab.
  12. Just done a trade with Chris. No hassle at all. Great communication throughout. Bass was really well packaged and arrived in great condition. Was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process.
