***SOLD*** Fender / Shuker 70’s Precision - Rosewood / Natural
£500

Recommended Posts

So, I will regret this but as I’d mentioned in my basschat status pre-update, one or more of three basses have to go to because I can’t afford to cover bills and get a piece of equipment I need for my work.

Here we have a genuine Fender Japan non-export precision neck (which today would be known as an FSR equivalent) which is partnered with a Shuker premium Alder body. I specified a natural finish that looked like bare wood. It is rock solid but as a side effect is wonderfully resonant.

Hardware comes courtesy of Gotoh which naturally is the best I could get. The bass comes with two pickguards. An official Fender USA 3 ply with a ‘road worn’ finish and also a brown/red tortoise shell guard too also with a ‘weathered’ look.

The neck is wonderful and is a 70’s profile with a 40mm nut, so it’s a little wider than jazz but not as big as a precision. Perfect for smaller hands and those who don’t want chunky but do want the tone. Oh and I’m sorry, but these are finished to a much higher standard than a Mendel. Great edge and fretwork out of the box.

The Shuker body was made specifically for the bass and as you’d expect is flawless. If you want it done properly with the best woods it’s gonna cost ya but I will be offering this up at a substantial saving over buying new of course. Not surprisingly all the routes are lined so the cavities are protected from noise.

You’ll also get Dunlop strap buttons and a Fender Japan split coil pickup.

The bass plays very nicely though I’m yet to give it the time for a full set up. As with any bass you will want to do that at some point. So i’ve factored that in to the final price. I have tweaked the truss rod and it was stiff but the relief is spot on. (I like a fairly flat board!) Fret wear is practically zero. 

A 70’s P without the weight issues. I’ll be very sad to see this go and maybe one or two others too :/

Collection of course is always wise but shipping is possible but this will be the full responsibility of the buyer to arrange including insurance and tracking. (This will be very easy due to my work).

Photographs to come soon.

I've not yet played a Fender Japan neck that I didn't instantly like
Great price for a bass built from great components

I should also add that this picture shows the bass with a Dimarzio Will Power pickup in it, not the Fender as listed.

As a fender PB70 player (my main bass) I can testify to the loveliness of these necks!

I had to remove this from sale as I discovered that the truss rod creaks. It doesn't affect the playability of the bass and the relief I have checked over the last month or so, hasn't moved at all. However, given that I am aware that this could be of a concern to a would-be buyer, I've had to take the decision to drop the price of the bass to £440 collected.

      Hi folks,
      EMG GZR Precision pickup for sale.  Lots of talk about these; they make a superb upgrade  - only selling as I am trimming down my collection.
      These seem to be £85 delivered new but with all the connectors and pots.  This is just the pickup, wire and screws so the price reflects this.
      Thanks

      Here for sale is my MIM 2013 Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, this is the version still with the Badass Bridge, only flaw that he as is on transportation once got bumped and the varnish on the strap button cracked as well on the bottom. 
        Will ship it with a pair of Schaller straplocks   About shipping, will ship to Europe and U.K, shipping cost will be determined by UPS, use them on a fair amount and their work with my packages has been stellar. 
        I am a user of this forum for a few years and this is the first time i am selling something in this platform, therefore there is no reviews on myself, in case of doubt you can pm me and will show my reverb reviews no worries at all. 
        cheers

      PRICE DROP - NOW £2050
       1990 Fender Custom shop fretless Jazz Bass. As you can expect from a John Page era custom shop bass – a superb instrument and one of the earliest Fender fretless jazz basses that I have seen from Fender (after the extremely rare ones from the 70s).
      As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows a lot of dings and dongs, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in perfect functional condition: straight neck with more place in the truss rod to adjust (it is not maxed out), all electronics and hardware work accordingly, action can be set very nice and low. The bass is superbly responsive, resonates extremely well with great dynamics and the harmonics are just amazing – it both sings and does the “mwah” just as well. I have not made any attempts to renew the hardware (remove the patina), because IMHO it gives it character, but if you wish my bass tech can do that prior to shipping. Width at nut is 38mm and the bass weights 4,07kg. according to my home scale. It comes with a black tolex case, probably not original.

      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the vintage precisions. The asking price is what it costed me, so am not very keen on discounts. No trades, I am afraid, unless it is a well played pre-1974 precision or recent B-15. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.
