Up is my MIJ jag in sunburst. Its a monster. I am moving house and have a few unforeseen bills to sort out, so Im operating a last in, first out policy on this. 

I've played 6/7 of these over the years and this one is the best of the lot. Its in excellent condition and plays well. Sounds exactly as it should. 


Unforseen events have now left me no choice but to drop the price again. Its now £600 including shipping. You wont find another this cheap anywhere. 

Any questions, please get in touch :)

      Very nice black Sadowsky Modern Metro Japan 24-5 with the great Sadowsky humbuckers and Sadowsky pre-amp with VTC.
      Not a Metro Express and not a Warwick or Chinese Sadowsky but a perfect Japanese Sadowsky..
      Good balance, approx. 3850 grams. Comes with original Sadowsky case.
      Signs of wear but great looking and no issues.

      PLEASE be aware that as the bass is in France, there might be import charges or delay to the UK.
      No probs with the rest of Europe.
      For sale is this rather uncommon Yamaha SuperBass800, made in Japan in 1978 and still in very good condition.

      - Alder body
      - 1 piece quartersawn maple neck with natural white block inlays, gloss finish
      - 42mm nut : a Jazz bass with a Precision neck
      - "Progressive" headstock and back of neck design 😎
      - 4 to 4.1kg : under 9lbs
      Following the Yamaha BB serial chart, the SB800 was made in 1978.
      It has the same sturdy bridge and general construction as the BroadBass series with 2 jazz pickups : Vol / Vol / Tone
      The neck pickup has a Precisionesque tone, it is overall quite woody.
      Absolutely no buzz.
      It is just back from the luthier for a general check-up and set up : the trussrod works fine but is almost to a maximum, set up with 45-105s.
      Here is for the neck :

      In the broad bass body category :

      Asking for £560 / 650€ 
      Shipping is not a problem.
      Options to be discussed.
      I can include a brand new Gator GL lightweight case worth 55€ as I prefer not so ship with neck off.
      Any questions or further pics needed, please ask.

      A Maiden classic that needs no introduction, played with the Fender Precision American Performer. Up the Irons!

      tonight I decided to do a little comparison between two great bass preamps. 
      I've received the Trickfish Minnow today and I must say it's an amazing piece of gear.
      The Radial thought remains an impressive preamp too.

      The basses used were:
       - Fbass Bn5 ash maple
      - Fender Precision custom shop L series

      Please be kind with my playing abilities

      Which one did you like the most ?

      Due to the Covid-19 situation and severe back problems (66% officially disabled because of it) plus right shoulder injury (non-operable capsulitis from which, after more than 3 years, I will never fully recover), I'm selling all my basses over 4 kilos and also the ones I'm not really using. I've also considerably lowered the price for a quick sale.
      VANZANDT (VAN ZANDT) JBV-R1 Vintage Natural, Japanese craftsmanship at its best, a true Custom Shop.
      Asking price including shipping fully insured with tracking number to your place in these European countries (ask for other countries) : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France (excluding French overseas departments and territories), Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom : £1299 GBP !!! New price is 308.000 JPY (with the 10% Japanese VAT) and they are not officially exported !
      Shipping to United Kingdom is, of course, possible, but with an extra customs fee (VAT + other taxes + courier fee), because U.K. is now outside EEC.
      In fully working condition with light use and very few marks.
      Here are the specifications :
      Body : 2 pieces of ash (almost book matched)
      Neck : one piece maple bolt on with skunk stripe
      Fingerboard : one piece maple with white perloid block inlays and white binding
      Frets : 20 (radius 210 mm or 8.25 inches)
      Headstock : 4 in line à la Fender
      Pickups :  2 USA Van Zandt Jazz bass in 70's position
      Controls (CTS pots from 18th week of 2014) : volume, volume, tone (Van Zandt paper in oil capacitor)
      Tuners : Gotoh/Vanzandt
      Bridge : Gotoh/Vanzandt
      Strings spacing at bridge : 20 mm
      Nut : oil finished bone
      Strings spacing at nut : 9.5 mm
      Knobs : original black à la Fender
      Scale : 34 inches
      Hardware colour : chrome
      Truss rod : one fully working
      Finish : all nitrocellulose lacquer
      Land of craftsmanship : Japan
      Serial number : 7465
      Year : 2015
      Weight : 4.375 kilos
      Action : from 1.5 mm under the G string to 2 mm under the E string at 12th fret (can go lower, but was perfect for me)
      Will come with a brand new Fame Soft-Case Urban.
      Non-smoking environment as usual.
      The bass has been fully set up professionally. It has been fitted with a set of Ernie Ball 2833 Hybrid Slinky strings (45 - 65 - 85 -105).
      For those who don't know Vanzandt (Van Zandt) instruments, they are the equivalent of Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt instruments, if not better. The Japanese higher quality control and craftsmanship make all the difference here. It's a no flaw construction. This bass is, to me, better than all the official Fender 70's Jazz Basses I have played. Compared to a Celinder J-Update in passive mode, the sound is a bit clearer, but very similar. Thanks to the (more fragile) nitrocellulose lacquer, the overall feel is similar to a vintage original Fender. And this tone control is simply magic !

      What you see is what you get !
      Look at the photos taken at different angles and under different lights to see the real condition of this bass which shows little use and only very few slight marks or dings. The biggest "blemishes" being at the headstock and near the control plate on the edge of the body where the (very fragile) nitrocellulose finish has gone.
      Here you can see the "blemishes" that I photographed alongside the 37 photos of this bass (the last photo showing Vanzandt full serial number in the neck pocket and the back of the heel's neck was taken by Régis aka @eneade ) : https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1KRjjhRGOfqWGq_PprTTB6UF-5EAAEYxO?usp=sharing
      Don't hesitate to ask for more.
