    Hey dude, what’s the back of the neck like on this bass? I’m trying to find another jazz from this era was a spotless neck as most I’ve played have had loads of dings in the back but I love the gloss finish on the back of the neck on this era of jazz bass. Please let me know!

    There is the tiniest dink in the lacquer at around the 12th fret. Its bizarrely in the shape of an 8, and about 8mm in length and 3 mm wide. Its so feint, i cant capture it in a photo. 
    Other than that its great. Certainly not loads of dings.

  2. Fender MIJ Jazz, according to serial number made 1984-1987.
    Pretty sought after period of Jazz basses if you do your research.
    I took this in a trade. I wanted a jazz bass because  i've wanted to like jazz basses. Really wanted to!
    But i dont. So maybe this is for you?

    For a 30ish year old bass its in great condition.
    Ive tried to highlight the marks that are on it by including them in some photos as best as i can. But generally as i said, its in great condition.
    Plenty of life left in the truss rod.
    It comes with an old and used hard Gewa case. Still perfectly functional.
    Also comes with original (i assume) pickguard.
    And the original pickups. I dont know if they work. I was told they do, but ive never tried them, as the Fender noiseless in them work fine!
    Youd be welcome to come to my house and try it through mine or your rig.
    I will post it, but it is at your own risk!
    Any questions, just ask.

    I dont know how to put photos in my post.
    But they are all in this IMGUR folder:

  3. Traded a bass with Vedran.
    Communication was fast and effective.
    Kept in touch the whole time, and from start to finish i think the whole deal took a week.
    I'd have no issues striking up a deal with Vedran again.

  4. Bought this off here recently.
    Great bass, superbly made, and in excellent condition.
    But i cant get on with the string spacing. So im going to put it back up for someone else to have a blast with.

    Ibanez 4 string P Bass Medium Scale + case

    Its great condition for a bass made in 1982 with barely a mark to be seen.

    All original and sounds great. Not a "Small bass sound".

    Nice action, truss rod fine.

    Length from bridge to nut = 83cm

    Weight = 4kg

    Original Ibanez fitted case included.

    Would be interested in trades for a Jazz






  5. Two mint condition TKS S112s. 
    They've lived their whole life in their cases, and honestly i don't think there is a single mark on them.
    They sound great.
    These have a few upgrades on the standard spec, so i paid £950 for them with the covers, although i'm informed the price has risen since i bought them.
    They are fantastic sounding cabs, very sensitive, very punchy, very articulate, as i'm sure anyone who has used them will confirm, but you are welcome to bring your own amp and bass and give them a blast at my house. 
    As you can see in the last photo, in certain lighting the grills can look a different colour...I like it

    Power handling (high average power test signal): 250 W RMS
    Recommended amplifier power: 150-300 W RMS @ 8 Ω
    Sensitivity[average]: 99 dB SPL @ 1W/1m
    Sensitivity[100Hz]: 98 dB SPL @ 1W/1m
    Sensitivity[max]: 103 dB SPL @ 1,5 kHz, 1W/1m
    Frequency response (-10db): 46 Hz – 4,8 kHz
    Displacement: 237 cm³
    Measurements (WxHxD): 52x38x33 cm
    Weight: 10 kg[/font][/color]

    I'm selling because i want a "all in one" type solution. 
    Something at 4ohms.
    Will look at trades on these, but only something that will run at 4 ohms, and is pretty lightweight.
    I would really prefer not to courier, so you can try them.
    But we can hopefully sort something out.
    Any questions, give me a shout.

    I wouldn’t call £150 a “give it away” type of transaction. £150 is a lot of money to some people.

    Say a bass had been for sale for 6 months for £300, and someone offered £150, that’s a perfectly fair offer considering it’s half of the asking price and lack there of a sale.

    Personally, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. I’ve took losses on basses & guitars in the past and also made offers which have successfully been accepted. 

    My Fodera YYS was for sale at £3000 for nearing a year, sold for £2300 in the end. But if you want something sold, you have to compromise, all the idiots on eBay with basses for sale high above their price tag think they’ll get what they’re asking, but they wont. Which is why they stay for sale for two or three years until being withdrawn. 

    So basically a offer of 75% of your original price.
    Where the £150 was 50% of original price.
    Even your Fodera is a lot more money overall, its a smaller percentage "loss" on your advertised price, no?
    I think Basschat is pretty good for selling/ buying tbh. 
    Far prefer this site to any others

  7. I play in a band that has keys, sax, and guitar. We aren't quiet. 
    Play mostly weddings. And i play with a MarkBass LM2 and a single TKS S112.
    I'm the only part of the band that doesn't go through our RCF PA, and i'm fine. I don't need to go louder.
    I don't think the issue is the Walkabout isn't loud enough. I think the issue is everyone wants to be too loud, and/or are probably too high in the mix
