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.

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.

Here for sale is my P Bass. It’s made from:
- Fender Classic Series Lacquer (Nitrocellulose) body in Black, unsure on the year.
- Fender Road Worn Jazz Neck, 2008/2009.
- Fender Tort scratchplate.
- Fender Custom Shop 62 pick ups.
- Fender Bridge with Graphtech saddles.
- Hipshot Ultra Light tuning pegs.
- Nate Mendel signature neck plate.
Currently strung with Ernie Ball Super Slinkys.
It cost me well over £1000.00 to assemble and plays really nicely. The reason for sale is quite simply that I need the money. As you’ll see by the pictures, the body is starting to age nicely, all natural wear, and should age into a great looking bass.
Priced at £600.00, plus carriage to wherever you may be.
Any questions just get in touch!
This is the best guitar I've ever owned (and played). I was never much of a P-bass person, but this is just so nice in every way. Incredibly well balanced and the tone is just beautiful, both passive and active. It's one of these things you can just plug in and not worry about anything. I am very sad to get rid of it, but a recent reality check means I'm selling it (and most of my other stuff).
I bought this brand new from bassdirect.co.uk for an "offer" price of £2,200 (this is the actual listing: http://w.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Xotic_XP4_Sherwood_Green.html). Since then, it has never left the house (apart from when I moved house) and been looked after extremely well. You're basically getting a new instrument if you buy this - even the plastic film is still on the scratch plate.
I think the colour is awesome on this bass, but I guess that's a matter of taste.
It comes with the original case, which is fantastic.
I'm not interested in any trades, sorry. I need to get rid of stuff, not just replace one thing with another.
Local pickup preferred but I'm sure we can agree something if you need it delivered.
Happy to answer any questions.
For virus-related reasons, I need to shift this quickly now. Price dropped to £1450.
(Ps. I'm also selling a Sadowsky Metro 5, Sire Marcus Miller V7 - look out for that posting as well, if you're interested.)
