  1. Hi all, this has been sold. it’s a non-export Fender JV for the Japanese market hence why there are no Squier logos on it. I got it imported from Japan. It’s a full 32” scale neck not a medium. neck pocket was 83 if I remember correctly. I've seen a few of these before and they don’t come about often unless you’re in Japan. regardless, this is sold.
  2. Not the one on martin’s site! However I think I may eventually take it down here and bring it in there. Fender have a nice CS thing that I want to get from them that was possibly the nicest P bass I’ve played in ages! It’s essentially a transition period J neck on a P bass body (but roasted)
  3. Reluctant sale of my beloved Candy Apple Red Fender JV P bass. OPEN TO OFFERS. (Be quick before I change my mind...) More photos to follow early next week. Reason for sale: I have found myself with 3 Ps and I have my eyes on a unique P bass and can’t justify 4 Ps. I know I’ll regret this sale. This thing has done me well. Played many a gig from small clubs to big festival stages, always strung with flats (except a short period this year where I had rounds on it) never has it sounded anything but great. Nothing plays like this thing and it sure sounds huge! You already know about JV Fenders so no need to explain. I got this Via Pierre from Bass Freaks at the very beginnings of his shop. (I think I was one of his first customers) Essentially he sourced this direct from Japan a good 4 to 5 years ago for me. (I hope he doesn’t mind me name dropping). He still has only come a cross a couple other CAR P basses since finding this one. It’s all original, except for the addition of the thumb rest that was done at The Bass Gallery the year I bought it, and has been very well looked after. It was recently set up at The Gallery and is strung with Thomastik flats. Plays wonderfully as you’d expect. It’s in good condition considering it’s age. There is a few dings and scratches but nothing serious. The worst of it is some dings on the top where your right arm rests but it is by no means bad, just a small portion of paint missing. Nothing to worry about, I just want to be clear and honest. (photos to follow in the next few days). The neck is in very very good condition, as is the fretboard. The fretboard is a lovely dark piece of rosewood. I have played it next to a 1963 P bass and this really does do it as well as the original. Anyways. Enough blabbing. More photos will follow, I’m out on a tour so I have a few photos from gigs etc of the bass. Some proper photos will follow early next week. Please do contact me if you want to send me offers, or want more photos. I’m open to it. Will supply a generic hardcase with it. Will happily restring it with Rounds if the sale is made free of charge. based near Alexandra Palace, North London.
  4. Prepare for a squire vs fender debate
  5. Do you accept anything other than cash as payment? A kidney for instance?
  6. [quote name='Chiliwailer' timestamp='1451818788' post='2943587'] Cheers pal. Is that a 66 sunburst I spy in your picture? Looks lovely too. [/quote] '69! And yes it is a beautiful bass! This 57 is another level however
  7. I'm yet to play a bad JV! Not that I've played hundreds, but the 4 or so I've played have been incredible
