  1. I've had a measure up and it's 100mm between the pole pieces of each pickup, so 70's spacing. I'm quite surprised by that as I've had a few 70s reissue Fender Jazz basses and I never normally like the bridge pickup solo sound due to it being a bit thin and clanky. This on the other hand has a thick and meaty tone, more reminiscent of a 60s Jazz.. Strange.
  2. Hmm, I'm not sure now you mention it. I added a pickguard to see if it became clear, I'm leaning towards 70's? Any thoughts?
  3. I've had more than my fair share of jazz basses and these are right up there with my favourites. They have so much character in terms of feel and tone. They work especially well with flatwound strings, which this one is currently wearing. Tone perfection.
  4. All the Moons I've had have been great, awesome machines.
  5. It's very similar to Moons passive J basses. I'd say the Moon edges it slightly but they are generally more than twice this price. They are pretty much a 60's Jazz copy, so firmly in Fender town tone-wise.
  6. Here's the second of my JB600R basses up for grabs. The serial number (which ends in 007👌🏻) indicates that it was made in Japan between 1986 - 1989. As previously stated these are easily as good as the basses Fender Japan were making at the time. This one has seen some action in its 30+ years, but plays like a dream and sounds great. It weighs 3.9kg/8.6lb. It doesn't have a case but I can package it securely if postage is required.
  7. Here's a rare one, BB1300👌🏻 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-BB1300-Bass-Guitar-Japan-Rare-with-HSC-/284191552916?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  8. Thanks, it weighs 8.5lb and has a classic jazz profile neck, so 1.5" at the nut.
  9. A lovely early 80's Yamaha JB600R Jazz up for grabs. These are exceptional jazz basses and every bit as good as early JV Squiers IMO. This one has a beautifully dark rosewood board and a rather fetching Larry Graham style white finish. It weighs just 8.5lbs, is perfectly balanced, sounds great and comes with a nice gig bag. The flats currently on it aren't included (it'll come with rounds) but I seriously recommend the buyer throws some flats on it. Perfect bass tone 😍 I'd keep this one but I seem to have accidentally acquired a matching black one..
