Recently purchased this lovely American Special P Bass from bassface23 here on Basschat. It was my second successful deal with him. However, as much as I do REALLY love this bass, my band really thinks I should stick with my Casady bass as it just has "the" sound I need for the 60's music we play. The P bass is equally as good for our sound, but the Casady just brings a different tone that I prefer.....and I can only play one bass....hence the sale of this great bass.
I've added a tortoise scratch plate (which is the law with a sunburst/rosewood P bass in my opinion). It also includes the original white scratch plate, original deluxe gig bag, schaller strap locks (and original strap pins) and LaBella flat wounds. Other than that it's all original. These American Specials have the graphite reinforced rods in the neck as well.
Collection from West London (TW11) or I can post no problemo as I have a Fender bass box ready to go. Paypal preferred for payment.
I'm also selling brand new Fender '62 custom shop pick ups if interested in adding them to the deal.

Here's a new take on a classic bass. Fender's American Special Precision Bass kicks off a new decade of Fender basses with the latest in U.S.-made quality and value. An ultra-fast and comfortable Slim C-shape maple neck and lightweight alder body make the American Special Precision Bass one of the most playable basses out there. A traditional split single-coil P Bass pickup puts out plenty of tone, and Fender's amazing Greasebucket tone circuit lets you ease off the highs and still get punchy and powerful lows. Top it all off with Fender's high-gloss finish, and the American Special Precision Bass looks just as good as it sounds.

** SOLD ** Price drop - £210 - Shiny…Squier VM Jazz Bass 77 for sale
Immaculate shiny condition and includes shiny mirror scratch plate and the original black one, plus a gig bag! - £210
Plus it’s very shiny….
This really is in as new condition, and the photos don’t do justice to how gorgeous this bass is with lacquered finish, white pearloid block neck inlays and choice of black or custom made mirrored scratch plate (both included) depending on how flamboyant you’re feeling.
It’s also exceptionally light, easily the lightest bass I’ve ever tried anyway.
Squier's Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '77 features a sleek offset body, crisp dual Fender®-designed pickups and a super-fast "C"-shaped maple neck. Comfortable and sonically versatile, this bass offers super '77 sound and feel for today's bassists, along with superior Squier performance and value. (Fender website).
I bought this around 5 years ago from a fellow bass chatter. Originally intended as a back up to my American standard Jazz bass, this has seen hardly any use apart from a once over every 6 months to make sure it’s still in tune. Never gigged and has always been stored in the gig bag in my bedroom (hence the great condition).
I’m based in Shtrewsbury by the way. The reason for sale is I’ve got my eye on something expensive and so have to let some things go to fund it.
Collection is great, but can courier at buyers expense.
Look out for other for sale posts today or tomorrow, as I'm also selling a Genz Benz Streamliner 900, Barefaced Big Baby 2 (gen 3), Stagg EUB with lots of goodies, and a Phil Jones Bass double four.
Thanks for viewing.
I might regret this.. But sudden urges towards getting the right P or maybe a PJ bass have made me wanna try making it real. So, my beloved Fender Roscoe Beck .. VERY VERY good condition. One mark on the fretboard and 1 or 2 un-photographable tiny marks in the paint ( you can't really see them!) .. Only thing to mention is a ding in the fretboard - that's really all there is to note! (See pic).
These are becoming rare! And in my view the 4 string is super rare.
This one has that awesome Lake Placid Blue finish with matching headstock.. Whats not to like.
It is a very powerful bass that has a really broad range of tones. Fits in about any musical setting I have thrown at it. Very resonant and lively bass with a super playable neck. Setup with DR Pure Blues.
It weighs in at 4.160gr and its a super resonant and lively bass.
Bass is located in Denmark.
Trades: The right Fender P could do the trick.. Or maybe some other high end versions of the P or a PJ bass could also catch my eye. Also, special Stingrays or maybe a short scale like a Fender Mustang.
Fender American Standard Jazz Bass, 2012. Made in USA. £800.
Immaculate condition - no dings. It has benefited from a professional set-up and fret-dress by Dave Walsh at Eternal Guitars in Chichester so is buttery smooth with a low action. Comes in molded case with case candy including a lead, as well as the original white pickguard.
Prefer local pickup from Chichester (evenings / weekend) or Winchester (office hours). Will send by courier at fully-insured cost.
No trades, thanks.
