Selling my Fender 60s Jazz Bass (Olympic White, Rosewood Neck). It's a great sounding bass with an authentic road worn look and in overall great condition! My collection is getting out of hand.. therefore i'm selling.
Classic Fender Jazz bass with timeless design elements. Off-set waist body, ultra-slim, fast-action neck and full-range Bi-Pole pickups. Many of the period-correct details that made the original Jazz basses so cool are spot-on replicated in this classic vintage-vibe beauty - especially the original offset waist, ultra-slim neck, and pair of vintage-style Alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups.
One small dink on the neck (see pics) which doesn't effect playability. I removed the pick guard (I like the look without), which you can have with the bass.
Based in NW London, happy to ship UK wide for extra cash.

Reluctantly up for sale is my ‘62 RI CIJ Fender Jazz - superb jazz tones & Very good condition apart from some buckle rash scratches on the back - i bought this bass NEW in 2005 & it was my main gigging bass for many years - just doesn’t get played anymore & deserves to!! Moving house & need to free up some space-It’s not too heavy - approx 9lbs ( bathroom scales) sounds & plays great - can include cheap gig bag free or proper fender padded gig bag for a little extra. The Aguilar 4j HC pickups alone now retail for over £200!!!-Collection preferred - thanks for looking - ps I would gladly share some of the mileage if meeting somewhere en route (within reason) to be discussed
Selling my 2014 Fender American Special Precision in Sunburst with rosewood fretboard.
This run of specials went from 2011 to 2015.
Here is a link to a review by Roger Newell: https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/guitars/fender-american-special-precision-bass-448255
I took this in a trade but unfortunately it's a bit heavier than I can cope with at 9lb. It's not heavy for a P but I have health issues so it must move on.
Its in very good condition. There is a shallow ding on the back of the headstock which so far I have not been able to photograph but if the rain holds off I'll get outside this evening and try again.
I did have Hipshot Ultralite tuners fitted for a while but I have put it back to stock. The extra tiny hole that is needed for the Hipshots is completely covered by the original tuners.
The American Specials have a regular modern P nut width, but the neck is a bit less chunky than the American Standard.
It's currently strung with a nicely settled set of Thomastik TI flats with a medium action. It's a brilliant sounding bass that I have been using in a Big Band playing swing and big band jazz. It does the Duck Dunn thing very well, and of course can go all rocky with roundwounds too.
Also comes with a Kinsman hardcase that is in pretty good condition. If you don't want the case I can knock £25 off.
£725 collected from Northants, or I might be able to meet you somewhere if it's not too far.
I'm not looking for trades unless you have something under 8lb. Cannot be even an ounce over. If there is a trade I will be bringing my scales!
Fabulous old school solid state 1200 watt (at 2 ohms) bass head. Amazing valve like levels of grunt, plenty of low end but no mud. Ran this on a three band tour with the other bass players sharing it so got to hear it being played, and it sounded wonderful. I believe they have some link with the legendary Thunderfunk amps, but do not know the exact history. If anyone does know please feel free to post or PM, thanks.
My gigging for the next year means I don't have the luxury of taking a large, very heavy (24kg) amp with me, so I'm back on Class d.
Comes with ABS flight case (with a few scars, but nothing serious).
Edited to add trades - always happy to consider any musically related trades - PA bits possibly, 5 stringers, guitars. Give me a try.
