SOLD: Limelight precision - fiesta red
£725

Recommended Posts

Limelight P for sale - reliced, fiesta red, tort pick guard. I bought this from MattM a few months ago, but unfortunately I think I'm too used to J basses and can't get on with the chunkiness of the neck profile. Lovely looking bass though, and sounds fantastic too. 

Alder body, slab rosewood board, clay dots, rolled fingerboard edges, reverse tuners, late 60s/early 70s logo. Hand wound pickup with CTS pots, switchcraft jack. Nut width just  under 40mm, weight approx 9lbs.

Comes with decent quality gig bag - price is £725. Would much prefer local collection or meet up in the Scottish central belt, but will consider (UK only) shipping.

Also will consider trades - ultimately I'm after a p sound with a jazz-type neck (like a lot of people!), so feel free to try me.

I spotted this for sale, just too late, when Matt originally advertised it
Kicked myself at the time - so I ordered my own version :)
Limelight basses are lovely - this shouldn't be around for too long (it, and a similar one went quickly last time)
GLWTS

PS. 40mm doesn't sound too wide for a Precision neck - or is this one quite deep too?

This is a lovely, lovely bass.   Only sold it on as I had an option on an ultra lightweight USA P which I figured would be easier for my young son to learn on.  

The Limelight has got a great range of sound, and as Derek says a slim (for a P)) neck width - similar to the B widths that were around in late 60s/early 70s like Nate Mendel's P is modelled on but quite deep.   Found it a wee bit different moving to the shallow modern C profile on my USA P but getting used to it.

My Limelight P is absolutely the best playing p I've ever had my paws on. This will be a great bass for someone.

Indeed Marc, it's exactly between the Fender A (38mm) and B (42mm) neck.  I did drool a little when I saw this but then realised the nut would be too small for me.

But, it'll be a superb Bass for someone, and like has already been said, won't be around for long, get it while it's hot folks!

I have a sunburst relic Limelight P with a jazz neck, the first Precision I've got on with in 30 years! I've also had a thing for a worn fiesta red for a while too 

....... so tempted by this

      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

      Squier Vintage Modified P-Bass with luthier made 5 string neck in Wenge and Maple with Ebony fretboard.   The bridge was moved back to make the scale length to 35 inch scale.   Pickups upgraded to Delano PMVC 6 FE/M2 and pots changed (original pots included).   Hipshot Kickass bridge and Hipshot tuners.   Set of D'Addario Flatwounds installed a few weeks ago (ECB81-5SL)   Set of Roundwounds included (about 6 months of use).   Body refinished in Sherwood Green and in excellent condition with only a slight 2cm blemish (see pic).   Due to different pickups the pickguard doesn't cover the recesses fully, will need a custom pickguard if you want to fix it (didn't really bother me).   All work done by previous owner, had the bass since May and it plays great, no issues, selling as I prefer a 4 string and want something lighter / thinner.   Quite unique bass for those who want that Precision sound and an extra 5th string.   Test and pickup encouraged, will ship to UK for another £25 - I will include a budget gig bag with it. International shipping possible, please enquire.   Any questions or pic requests welcome.

      1983 Squire JV Precision bass, candy apple red, rosewood board. All original domestic JV, alder body, relatively light – 3,9kg. As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows some dings and dongs here and there, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in more than perfect functional condition: neck is straight as an arrow with minimal truss rod tension (it has a loooot more room to go), also the neck is extremely comfortable at 42mm at the nut and the playability is to die for – out of 12 precisions that I possess incl. very nice vintage fenders, this is the most comfortable to play: super nice neck profile (flat, but not too much) and extremely low action. This is also the last JV I have and the best compared to all the others I had over the years (around 10 if I remember correctly). With flats it does the Motown job, with rounds it sounds deep but aggressive.
      More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/1AJdmjTWwmQ3Qi7R9 
      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. I am aware the asking price is not among the cheapest – I have sold JVs here for 500 pounds some years ago, but am also not quite sure I want to let this one go, so if it doesn’t sell for this, I’ll be happy to keep it. Plus - try to find a CAR with rosewood board - it took me close to a decade. 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.
