  1. You tell me.......................... its a fantastic player too. I prefer the tone of the 79 to the earlier bases for fretless. I think they are the equivalent of a 59-60 p bass to the 57 if you ask me. its the precise moment they got it just right.
  2. Feeler for serious buyers. This is my August 1960 Fender Jazz Bass. It is all genuine and in good order, Pots, pickups and solder joints are are undisturbed. Includes the original case in excellent condition. I bought this from the US some years back and I can tell you its one of the best playing basses I have ever laid hands on. She has been on flats all her life so the frets are in great condition. She comes complete with her original ashtrays in excellent condition and a full set of mutes. Sadly it is time to let her go. No trades, no kidneys, no children please.

    Moollon basses

    But Moollon come from South Korea.
  4. Another shout for anaconda. Andrew just built me this PJ. Its really something.
  5. I had a sixer of this for years. Really solid beast. Always played well.
  6. It's a bit like discovering the opposite sex when you were a teenager. It's different and really quite pleasurable. After a few fumbling attempts at the unfamiliar bottom end you soon feel at home🙂
  7. Hi Goran myes noted I know you have the B524. I played on over in YJ's workshop - outstanding instruments. He had on hollow boody left - I was so - tempted. As for the pre CBS yes its true they are different. My 66 was sweet and aggressove but the neck was not great. I've playes a couple of amazing 66's tho
  8. I had a 66 and I have a 62 jazz. My Moollon is darker ( less bright harmonics) then my 66 was, a little less output than my 62. It has warmer tones of the pre CBS basses. It's more stable less 'quirky' than the early fenders. If there was such a thing I would call it a 'recording quality' pre CBS. Its very organic and the feel is really natural. It doesn't smack you in the face and sits in the mix better than any J I have had. It's oddly more like a p than a J in that regard but it has all that J tone. Mine is a 5 so a little different. If I wanted 4 I'd have had this by now. I don't know if this is a 60's or 70s bridge position but for £1850 ..... enough said.
  9. The only reason this is still here is that enough people just haven't played one yet.... this is a steal.. I have one with one, & on the way. Hands down the best pre cbs tone without selling a kidney.
  10. That'll be your bass then....
  11. I've tried one and they are very good. I was pretty impressed. Andrew has a few in at the moment.
  12. That's a lot of bass for the money!
  13. Finished, ready to collect next week............... what u think?
  14. Ohhhh, that makes my teeth itch.........
  15. Nope, lookl like shipping is going to be held due to the little bugs, Export ban................. Ah well......... I'll have to wait.
  16. Just got these pics in from And at Moollon - can't wait for it to arrive. PV to go with my JV
  17. That wasn't my point. It wasn't about value or collectability it was about the fact that once you chop this down it's nothing. Not what it was, not better and not even residual with a residual value. Its a piece of its time, leave it be and get something light if you want.
  18. Don't do it. its pointless. The cab will still be heavy and so will the head. It is what it it is. If you want something lightweight go buy it. The drivers are old and won't hold to their original parameters so if you carve it up you won't get the cab right. The drivers are heavy and won't get lighter. leave it be and don't be like the guys who stripped their old 1962 P basses and painted them in a great shade of day-glo green car paint.Its a bit of history enjoy it.
  19. These are superb, I mean proper quality. I have Furch acoustic guitars and I've played these too. Furch make some of the best acoustic instruments I have ever played. They were traded in the UK under the name Stonebridge.
  20. I'd take them to a good cabinet maker. have them completely filled and re drilled.
  21. That is sweet....... fair price ad no 9 month wait! what's not to love........ one of the very best super jazzes out there. I love mine.
  22. Hi this is my Purple Burst Anaconda UltraJ5E incoming shortly. Always been a strict J man myself but with the material I'm playing I needed a wider range in one instrument. So intro the Purple PJ. Swamp ash body, figured maple top & head, Roasted Maple board, Delano PUPS, Aquilar OPB3 prom and gold hardware.
