Fantastic Jazz Bass, bought from Coda in Stevenage in 2017. It was made in 2016. I have the accessories and certificate and the original case. The capo in the tool kit is broken however. There is some slight wear on the case from gigging and travelling but the bass is fantastic and in excellent condition, despite the relic treatment suggesting otherwise.
Even with old strings it is very bright, with plenty of low end and mid range punch. Sits very nicely in the mix and is a joy to play.
Weight is 4.5 kg.
I am selling as I don't use it anymore and prefer my Yamaha BB.
All welcome to come over and try it out.

thanks in advance for the support as I know nothing about electrical stuff. Long story short: my amp's power cable has gone missing after a show with my band and I need a replacement. I'm guessing not all cables are interchangeable and I probably need a specific one, but I have no idea where to start! I own a Tc Electronix BG250-208, on the amp's socket i can see "100-240VAC 50-60 Hz, 70W @ 1/8 Max Power".
Any tip or link to suitable cables is much appreciated!
Thank you so much,
Amp Portabass rig, All made in USA. Very good quality 250 watt amp and 15" Speaker Cab (4 Ohms). We'll used but functions perfectly and very portable as the name suggests.
The amp weighs 6.5 Kilos and the Cab Weighs 12 Kilos.
Don't want to separate these at the moment and not looking for any trades.
Thanks for looking

I am delighted to let U all know that I finally got myself a Squier Classic Vibe Precision '50s Bass in Lake Placid Blue. Been hunting down one of those for the past two years & every time they would pop up on my radar, they would be clearly out of reach for either budget or geography reasons...
That changed yesterday as I was in England visiting the in-laws. One of those appeared on Fb Marketplace a half hour drive from the their place, the price was right, so I jumped on it!
Now, the downside is the previous owner was a real pig who knew nothing about how to keep his gear clean & safe from harm. So the bass has suffered in 11 years more than most old school Fenders have in 50 and all the metal parts & pick guard have started to go yellow...
I don't even know if the electronics work cuz I'm travelling & do not carry an amp with me everywhere. The guy was a guitarist who didn't own a bass amp & a hoarder apparently, so I didn't make it past the front door. Also, he graciously forgot to take close up pix of the dents in the body, the paint stains on the headstock, or to mention the rusting state of the metal parts (for those of U who want tips on how to take pix in broad daylight in such a way that the yellowing aspect of metal parts doesn't show, I can help U cuz now I know how) ... Glad these people exist, they make the second hand market such a better place for all of us to find happiness, right?
Last night a spent an hour or so cleaning the body, the fretboard, & started using Brasso to give the tuning pegs & the knobs some shine... But it still needs work. I wonder though, what do U guys think? Should I let the bass go all vintage or should I restore it completely?
If so, would dipping all the metal parts into Coca Cola do the trick? Cuz the Brasso thing won't allow me to reach the small corners, especially in the bridge & tuning mechanisms... I'm also not an electronics guy & am quite reluctant to un soldering all the electronics... But if the general consensus is that I should take the whole bass apart & do a huge cleaning, then I guess I'll do that under Ur guidance!
Also, does boiling old strings really bring them back to life?
Anyway, thanks for reading through, & thanks for any input U could contribute to help me through this!
