I swapped the body on a bass I bought here; I don't think I'm likely to swap it back, particularly as this one is white and the modified instrument is now used as my main jam session bass. So, just in case it's useful to anyone else (highly unlikely, I know ;-), I thought I'd list it here. Price does not include postage, and it might take me a while to find a suitable box. Bridge and scratchplate included.
The original neck was a WD music one, BTW.
PRICE DROP!! - Was £350, £325, £300, £275.... now just £250!
VISA card needs paying back so here we have my fantastic original Japanese made (late 80's) Fernandes Ltd Edition PJ60 Bass in eye-catching bold red.
Maple bolt-on neck
FGI active P/J pickups & preamp (like EMGs) for every tone you could possibly require!
Usual fantastic Japanese build quality. This is no entry level instrument - feels, plays & sounds great in any professional environment. A crazily good bass and an absolute bargain!!
This instrument is in fantastic condition with just a few very light dings and plays beautifully. Very slim and playable neck and a wide tonal palette. It sounds hugely resonant unplugged (always a good sign!) and this is continued when plugging in!
I'll be sad to see it go & only selling to clear some debt so not looking for any trades/offers. Bass is located in Guildford/Woking area and I can courier at buyers expense (prob approx £30-£40) or can meet in South East England for petrol. Payment by cash, bank transfer or Paypal (you pay all fees) only please.
Please see my extensive positive feedback record for assurance of a smooth and honest transaction.
The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
Pricedrop 3500 € or Trade Options: Fender Precision or Fretless Bass
The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.
