Yamaha BB1024X £525
I picked this up in a trade with another basschatter. It is a stunning bass.
These basses are so well made and so well designed.
The neck feels great at 40mm at the nut.
Unfortunately for me I have another incoming bass and I’m being told that “10 basses is enough” (not including the NS EDB and the double bass, of course, shhh!).
So the rule of last one in etc
This is a truly beautiful instrument.
The depth of the wood finish is lovely and the design incorporates clever angled thru body stringing and powerful passive pickups.
Scale Length 34'' (863.6mm)
Radius 10" (250mm)
Body Alder (Spline Joint)
Neck Maple/ Nato 5pcs
Bridge Vintage Plus (Brass Saddle, Steel Plate)
Pickups Neck: Split Blade (Alnico V), Bridge: Single Blade (Ceramic)
Pickup Switch 3P Toggle Switch
Controls Master Volume, Master Tone
I’m in Malvern. Worcestershire
Happy to meet up half way within reason.
Will post in hard foam case for £35

Neck: Roasted flame maple / Madagascar rosewood
Weight: 3.62 kg!
Since I've swapped original pickups with custom Nordstrand nj4sv-bc (they are humcanceling single coils in soapbar covers with staggered pole pieces for 12'' radius) I thought that it would be nice to take fresh pictures of this beauty, still gorgeous and in mint condition
With bass of course comes original Sadowsky Soapbars which is 15 minutes work to swap if you like them better
Bass like this costs 6300$ at Roger's shop + almost a year wait + VAT, shipping etc. + you can't get something like this from NYC anymore. For example on thomann.de, similar specs Sadowsky's are around 7000 euros.
Bass comes in original Sadowsky case, also like new. All case candy included of course, and fret protector.
I will put inside the case Sadowsky Comfort strap (size S) like a little gift.

Up for sale is my Jon Shuker 5 String Jazz built for me in 2013. It has a couple knocks and bumps having toured the world with me but nothing obvious from the front. Villex pickups and electronics with passive mid cut make for a very versatile sound. It’s not the lightest bass ever made, but plays and sounds great. Comes with it’s original Hiscox hard case, or will knock some off if you want it in a generic gigbag.
