[size=6][b]Price drop - £300[/b][/size]

This is bitsa jazz bass with the Lakland 44-60 neck dimensions as follows;

Nut Width: 1.5"
Nut Type: Delrin
Fret Size: .041/.085"
Width at Final Fret: 2.48"
1st Fret Neck Depth: .77"
12th Fret Neck Depth: .94"
Fingerboard Radius: 10"
Scale Length: 34"
Frets: 20

She also sports Hipshot USA tuners and bridge with a stacked pot control plate. I bought this bass as is but I've updated the pickguard, shielded the cavitys, machined a truss rod entrance into the body (so you don't need to take the neck off to adjust) and widened the bridge pup cavity as it was a bit tight. On the 4th fret of the G string there is a dent (as seen in the close up photo) where she fell from her stand onto a pedal (the pedal was fine hoorah) which has never affected the sound of playablity.

Collection would be around SW8/SW15 area

Postage is fine too and will be packed securely and safely

Comes from a pet and smoke free home

what kind of wood is the body?

Couldn't quite tell you, I expect alder? I got this from a fellow BC user and he doesn't know what type of wood it is sorry. If there's any telling signs to look out for I can check.

That seems a very good price for this. Lakland necks are among the best I've ever played, worth it for just that.
