      Up for sale is my Maruszczyk Jake Basement 55 Butterscotch
      In A1 condition, bought from Bass Direct last year and only gigged by me a couple of times as I usually use my Lull
      Only selling cos I've spotted something else (you know how it is😊)
      £800 + shipping, in a decent semi-rigid case
      Body: Ash body
      Neck: hard rock maple
      Fingerboard: Maple, 20 frets, Zero fret
      Nut width: 40mm
      Construction: bolt on
      Pickguard: Black
      Pickups: Bassculture
      Electronics: Passive: Volume, Tone
      Finish: Butterscotch transparent, body/neck matte
      Hardware: black, 19mm string spacing
      Strings are flatwounds, and look new-ish, don't know the make, sorry
      Original listing on Bass Direct's website
      Photo's are their's too - I'm hoping that's ok as I bought the bass. I will take some of my own and stop being a lazy-arsed keyboard warrior and post them later tomorrow (I'm mostly engaged with watching the 6-nations today
      No trades unless it's for a Mike Lull precision with the jazz neck width and cash your way (obvs)
      I'm in Nottingham and Covid safe collection is ok or I'll ship via UPS in the aforementioned semi-rigid case. Overseas shipping considered - pm me
      I would expect that fully insured shipping will be around £30 to UK mainland destinations

      Up for sale is my Maruszczyk Jake L in Fiesta Red (very Pino). I bought this new in mid April of last year. It has been gigged a few times and, apart from the usual swirls, is in great condition. Sounds just like you'd expect a P Bass to sound.

      34" Scale maple neck, katalox fretboard with MOP dots.
      19mm bridge spacing, 40mm nut width.
      Standard Maruszczyk split coil pickup, passive circuit.
      Tort, 3 ply pickguard.
      Weighs 7lbs 3ozs (3.3kg ish).
      Hardware is standard Maruszczyk fitment.
      Maruszczyk gig bag.
      Currently fitted with Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats.

      Bought not long ago off a good chap on here. Now only selling as I've found a Shuker I've been after for over a year and something needs to fund it. £730 shipped. 
      Ash body in red satin with matching headstock 
      Under 10lbs
      34" scale 
      19mm spacing 
      21 fret rosewood board 
      Häussel pups
      Delano 2-band active pre 
      Push/pull active passive 
      Great neck and super playability and sound. Häussel pickups sound rich with something of a vintage tone. This covers a lot of ground. Nicely thick padded gigbag included. Well packed for shipping. 
      No trades I'm afraid, as I need some cash towards the Shuker.

      Now On Hold
      Great condition Maruszczyk Elwood 5a
      Ash body in Red Satin finish with matching headstock
      34" scale
      19mm string spacing
      4.45kg weight
      Angled headstock
      21 Frets plus zero fret
      Rosewood fingerboard with blocks & binding,
      Häussel JJ pickups
      Delano 2-band active preamp
      Volume and blend
      Passive mode on push-pull pot
      Wearing nearly new D'Addario XT strings
      Schaller strap lock buttons fitted, originals included
      Really nice looking, sounding and playing bass, and a reluctant sale, but I've had some wrist problems that make 5 strings a bit harder to play. I've already got it's replacement - an Elwood (Hellwood in fact) 4 string with the same pickups, I really like the sound of them.
      Condition is really good, I've checked it over for anything at all and all I could find was a small mark on the back where the finish has gone shiny and tiny ding in the headstock so small it was hard to photograph. There are some scratches on the scratchplate (makes sense ) and a few on the control plate but you have to get it in the right light to see them. I've done some photos of those, and other than that it's perfect.
      I can throw in a Maruszczyk gig bag, I do have a hard case but I'd need to replace it so that would be £30 extra. It's a good case, hardly used and deep enough for the angled headstock.
      I'd prefer collection or a meet up half way thing, but I can arrange a courier and pack it up properly (it would be packed better than the couriers advise) and send it insured for whatever that costs if really needed, that will probably be about £30 on top.
      Now £750, I might be up for trades but there aren't lots of things I'm after. One is a Sandberg Forty Eight in black with creme strips and matching headstock. If also consider a Fender P or Jazz, that is right in the middle of their respective sounds, as I've never owned either only other people's version of.
