  1. The bass is with me, and freezing! Letting it warm up a bit, brand new Japanese Tokai AJB118, quite rare! It's really light weight, much lighter than my Sandberg, and probably the same as the basswood Fender. I need to get some strings on it that I can handle as I am a wimp, but it sounds good so far.
  2. I’m not even left handed and I’m tempted.
  3. Boo, it's only just reached the UK, so I won't get it til Monday! This has made me wonder what wood my Sandberg is now, my 64 is alder, and my Jap Fender is basswood.
  4. It looks very much like the Oregon Ash picture they have on their site.
  5. Good old bass chat! What difference does anything make? That was in a jokey way by the way, I am actually more in the I don't care what the wood is when it comes to sound camp. I am more just curious what the wood is, because I want to know. Either way, I had bought the bass before I posted that picture.
  6. Good good, to be honest, I am wanting it to be Ash! And the more elaborate grain made me think it was. It will be here later today anyway, all the way from Barcelona to Kippax in Yorkshire.
  7. It’s a jap Tokai, they’ve made Alder and Ash basses, so it’s more about the grain. All the others of this model I’ve found say Ash, but they are natural finishes.
  8. So is this Ash or Alder? I think from the photo Ash, but the spec says Alder?
  9. The Bajo bit confused me on one of their listings, I thought it was a cool limited edition before realising its just Spanish for bass, haha. I ordered a Tokai from them though, I wasn't even wanting a bass really, ended up on that site after googling about Jap ESPs.
  10. Fanatic Guitars in Spain has some good deals, including this Jazz... https://www.fanaticguitars.com/producto/fender-bajo-jazz-bass-classic-70s-3ts/ Even with shipping that’s a good price.
  11. I saw an awesome deal on a 70s Fender, did you want the link? Vintera that is.
  12. On google it says these are MIJ, is that right? As they seem good value for less than £800! EDIT - ignore this, managed to zoom into the back of a headstock and saw they are made in China.
