  1. Yes. In my opinion they're all superb. Have 2 Precisions also. One earlier than this and one later and I honestly don't think the specific date of one JV puts it above any other for quality.
  2. If anyone is interested in this (or indeed the Stingray I also have on here) I would be prepared to travel a fair distance to meet and handover. I've been waiting for travel restrictions to ease before suggesting this.
  3. Tbh I didn't really expect to sell either bass before restrictions are eased.
  4. Yeah, I was looking for a quick answer online as I'm at work. Will take the neck off at the weekend. Although my early JV Precision has no pencil date just the EX export stamp. Cheers.
  5. No serial number checking site that I have looked at is any more specific than 82 - 84.
  6. I know they're all 82 to 84 and have never delved further than that. I will investigate.
  7. I also inherited this one from my late Father a few years ago. Again, being realistic about the lack of use it gets these days it seems right to move it on. Genuine original bass in excellent condition. There are a few light, tiny surface scratches around the body but only 2 dings as such. One tiny one on back of headstock and one small chip to bottom edge of body (both pictured). Strung with flats. Comes in a genuine vintage 1967 - 71 Fender case. This does have a good few scuffs but is totally serviceable, looks the business and is worth a few quid on its own. Also included is what I assume to be the original hang tag. What else is there to say? We all know how great these basses are and there aren't a great many around in this condition. Collection only from Bristol, I won't post it. When travel is allowed again I would be prepared to drive to meet up / handover. Not interested in any trades.
  8. I inherited this a few years ago from my late Father. The time has come to be realistic and let it go. It is wasted sitting in it's case from one year to the next and just getting occasional use. Pretty rare & fantastic Burnt Apple Burst metallic finish which is really hard to do justice to in the pictures. It looks quite reserved from a distance and in dull light but up close and lit well it has a great pinky red shimmer to it. Original case & key. Case is in excellent condition but have just noticed a small crack on one corner. Made in 2002 and all original as confirmed by the Ernie Ball serial number check website. It's in pretty much immaculate condition with just some light tarnishing to the machine head buttons to mention. Never been used outside of the house to my knowledge as my Dad always gigged with a Stingray 5. Collection only from Bristol at the moment as I'm not prepared to post it. However when we are able to travel again I would be prepared to travel to meet and handover.
  9. Thanks for the interest. My luggage scales put it at 4.76kg so a little under 10.5 lb.
  10. No trades sorry. I'm after cash at the moment.
  11. I was waiting for that to be pointed out - honest! 😉 That was me after I removed the neck to photo the Momose stamps..
  12. Bass Collection JZ series Made in Japan for Bass Collection by Momose. Momose come under the Deviser umbrella who make some serious high end gear under a few different names - Bacchus, Headway etc.. People rave about Bass Collection SB series basses but this is something else. Excellent condition. Natural finish. Back of neck feels like that of a Stingray so I guess it's oiled. Ebony fingerboard. I believe hardware is all Gotoh. 2 band EQ. I had this professionally set up a couple of years ago with a really low action and it was great. I haven't used it for a while and now I would say the action is too low as it is buzzing a bit. I'm sure any new owner would want it it set up to suit their personal taste anyway. There is one tiny ding on the back which I am struggling to photograph. Any other marks you may spot on the back are part of the grain and are actually flat to the touch, ie no damage. Full asking price will include mainland UK shipping in a really good hard case. I'll obviously move on that price if you can collect it with your own case.
  13. Will take £160 plus postage if sold quickly as I have my eye on something else and need to boost the fund! Bass Collection SGC Nanyo in Pearl White. Made in Japan. All working as it should and sounds great. In really excellent condition cosmetically. There is one small drink on back edge of neck which you can't feel when playing, see pic with 5p piece for context. Strings have been on a good while so it could probably do with new strings and a set up but I guess one would do that to any new bass. UK postage via parcelforce will be £25.
  14. Payment received so now sold. 🙂
  15. And for anyone familiar with the Tanglewood Elf
  16. Here it next to a regular Precision.
  17. Yep. Very cute. Would probably fit in a Christmas stocking. 😉
  18. Thanks. Have had some interest and hopefully there's a deal on the way.
  19. Stradi Mini Bass - Made in Poland Now £350 including postage to UK I bought this on here last year but I have not really used it. Original ad from then is still visible on here. Amazing build quality, materials and hardware. Very small. 600mm x 220mm. Delano quad pickup, hipshot tuners. Controls: Volume, pickup toggle Standard EADG but up an octave. Fantastic condition and comes in nice ukulele case. My camera has shown it slightly darker than it really is. It is pretty pale.
  20. Is this tuned to standard pitch and do regular length strings work ok?
  21. I had a Fender Japan Precision of the same era with 'Foto Flame' finish. The finish on that had cracked all over in the same way.
