Reduced to £520, but feel free to discuss anyway
Its my Ibanez Portamento 5 string fretless up for sale.
I have made a decision to sell everything I am not gigging or at least using, and as much as I enjoy playing it when I pick it up, I don't pick it up often and I have never gigged it, my band doesn't give me much of an opportunity to play fretless stuff and it is too nice to leave idle.
Note there is a £1 listing on ebay tomorrow so i will list it there too.
So as the normal specs, it is a 5 string fretless with a neck that goes to about the 30th fret, 16.5mm normal SR string spacing, to pickups and a piezo in the bridge (I normally just use that). Individual volume to balance the pickups on the piezo on the back, that i have never touched. Volume, balance, bass, treble for the bartolini normal pickups, independent volume tone for the piezo.
Good condition apart from a scratch on the neck, which there is a picture of
Apart from a week when I put normal strings on it, it has always, and is currently fitted with D'addario chrome flats.
Not sure of the weight, more than the 1605, less than the 5005
Lovely bass, just not for me.
Can pickup from Yeovil, or I can deliver for a reasonable distance, often go to Bristol / Bath / Exeter etc or can meet in the middle somewhere.
Will ship if you want at cost with insurance.
Not really interested in trades on this, as I am cutting down, although if you want to just swap with a 6 string SR Premium such as a 1x06, then I will be interested.
Price Drop: Now £400
In my eternal quest for the "perfect jazz", I'm selling this rather lovely (quite new) MIM Jazz bass, in near mint condition.
I'm selling to make room & funds my next purchase... (aren't we all? lol)
It looks a real beauty, in stunning condition (one teeny tiny ding I can see - but can't get my phone to focus on). I think this one is a very recent model (MX1793063636 serial number) and has a Pau Ferro fretboard, which I like the look of.
The last owner never gigged it, and didn't seem to play it much as far as I can see. The strings still sound brand new. Weight is around 4.3kg (I'll get an accurate weight soon)
Normally, I'm not fussed on white scratchplates - so I bought a Tort one which was listed as being suitable to fit a MIM Jazz - all the screw holes seem to line up perfectly. On this bass, I think the white scratchplate looks rather nice, and quite classy - so I decided to leave it there. You can have the tort one if you prefer - I'll even chuck both in, so you can dither and ponder about swapping them yourself
I'm now throwing in a choice of either a Fender Red badge shaped hard case, or an old Roadworn brown G&G Fender bass case (I believe this was from an AVRI)
No trades please.
Collection from near Cardiff. Or we could possibly arrange to meet up - I hate posting basses, and would much prefer you tried it. I've got a vox battery headphone amp, and a Roland Micro bass amp to test without mains, if we meet at motorway services
EDIT: Tea provided at my place, when you come to test drive.
I am putting up for sale/trade my Atelier Z M265 5-String in beautiful natural finish.
I acquired this in a trade here on the forum in 2016 after I stupidly sold my Xotic. (See old post: https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/286295-traded-atelier-z-jazz-bass-5-string/?tab=comments#comment-3066036)
The bass came with a really nice upgrade too; a John East Preamp with sweepable mid controls. It allows you to dial in pretty much any tone you want (The upgrade alone is probably worth £300!) The bass specs are very similar to the Jerry Barnes model: http://w.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Jerry_Barnes_5.html
The bass is located in North London and comes with very sturdy Atelier Z flightcase. Collection preferred but I can arrange courier at buyers expense.
As far as trades go, I would really prefer to go back to the Xotic XJ1T 5 string or one of the newer Xotic XJ Pro 1 Models (preferably in Vintage White).
Bought the bass a couple of months ago from Andertons. Great basses for the money. I bought this as a replacement for my Fender 5 Elite but ended up buying it back as realised I made a mistake!
Bass comes with a Fender deluxe vintage style case (originally came with my old US Marcus Miller jazz V which I sold a while ago but held onto the case).
I am based in Gloucestershire. Collection preferred but can send with insured courier at buyer’s expense.
No trades, thanks.
