  1. For sale is my Fender Japan Jazz Bass Special E series (1984-1987) in Black with natural neck. I'm not looking for trades as this is one of two that I own and I'm looking to sell this one to finance another purchase. To the best of my knowledge this bass is all original and still has all its "F" caps on the control knobs (rare as the proverbial rocking horse stuff if missing!). It has a Jazz bass width neck, not too skinny and plays superbly IMO. Very similar to my '68 Jazz. Weighs in at about 9lb 1oz, so relatively light. If you're after the Duff Mckagan sound then get your pick out and you've got it. But this is no one trick pony and the range of quality Fender style sounds is really top notch. The electronics are Volume/volume/TBX tone control (TBX is your standard tone control, but once you pass 5 more bass, treble, presence and output to flow to your amp) and also a pickup selector switch - all great useable sounds. This is a well used bass so shows some signs of wear after 30+ years. Black bridge and neck plate finish worn. Various dings and belt bulking, but noting through the finish from inspection and being black from a couple of feet away you can't see it. I've done my best to show wear in the pick, but with black it's a bit tricky. Full disclosure if you're after a really clean bass, this isn't it. The neck is really nice and clean and overall this is a superb locking bass. I will post it safely if required at the buyers expense, or happy to meet up within reason. Will post at cost and buyers expense .
  2. Hopefully this will be familiar to people. In excellent condition. Velcro on the bottom, and sticky rubber feet included if you want those instead. Great versatile pedal, but surplus to requirements following purchase of Cali '76. Price includes UK mainland postage.
  3. I bought a Cali '76 from Marcin. Really pleased with it and it was a pleasure to deal with him. Thanks Buddy 👍
  4. I sold Jamie some EMG Jazz pickups. Swift and easy transaction. Thanks.
  5. I sold Aidan an East J-Retro preamp. Smooth transaction and easy to communicate with. Would happily deal with him again. Thanks
  6. I bought Paul's Sire V7 fretless form him. Super smooth transaction and very pleasant to deal with. We met up (covid safe) and had a good bass natter. Thanks Paul
  7. I'm selling this East J Retro 01 preamp with chrome knobs. Needs little introduction, but I can vouch this is a brilliant preamp. Easy to install and superb sounding. It has been installed but shows very little sign of wear. It has a new battery clip , the original one having been removed to connect the preamp to the bass batter box. Comes with original box and paperwork. Price includes UK mainland postage. Any questions please PM me.
  8. I'm selling this set of EMG J set active pickups with loom. The pickups have been installed but show very little signs of use. The loom which came with the pickups when I bought them new. The pickups are dated 2006. I've had these installed with an East Preamp (which I also have up for sale) and they sound awesome. Classic Jazz bass tones but supercharged. Price includes UK mainland postage. Feel free to PM me with any questions.
  9. Just bought a 3 Leaf Doom 2 from Peter. Totally smooth transaction. Thanks Peter
