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

      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.

      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!
      Steve.

      Hello everyone,
      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.
      Thanks
      (Ps. I'm also selling a Sadowsky Metro 5, Sire Marcus Miller V7 - look out for that posting as well, if you're interested.)
