This is serial number 0073 and can be seen in better detail on Alans web site where there are much better photos than my poor efforts!
Alan built this for me a while back when I was regularly gigging, and having had a few learning difficulties with the filter pre amps in previous ACG basses he arranged for John to build a custom J-Retro which suited me fine. The pickups are custom wound Bart Classics and the teal body staining was chosen by me after considering several different options and looks really superb with the gloss finish. The top is flame sycamore with a swamp ash body core and back. The headless neck is 5 piece flame maple with black veneer contrast lines and a heartwood birdseye maple fingerboard. The radius is 16, nut width 40mm and black hardware and an ABM bridge with standard 18mm spacing is used. Locking strap buttons are included, as is Alans dinky little tool kit and a fitted Hiscox case.
Installed whilst the bass was being constructed are red Sims leds on the edge of the fingerboard, for practical purposes on dark stages rather than front mounted for effect! The preamp is 18v and a low battery warning light is fitted. Now heres the interesting bit. The bass is still as brand new, despite being a few years old! I never gigged with it or took it to practices but every so often I would take it out of its case and admire it as a superb work of art, play a few riffs then put it back in its case under the bed. The last few years I have only gigged in a pub duo using short scale basses so don't ever envisage it being used in anger so thought that now was the time to let it go to someone who would appreciate it. The tone is everything I have ever wanted from a bass, its lovely to play and mint, what more can I say?
An American Elite Jazz Bass, made in 2017, in black with matching scratch plate, maple neck with black pearloid inlays, Fender high mass string-through bridge and Fender light tuners, as standard. 3 band active EQ with passive mode/passive tone switch. Gen 4 Noiseless pickups.
Comes in at 3.96kg.
Includes the original fender hardshell case and all case candy. Only issue is some buckle rash on the back which I tried too show in the pics.. used live a couple of times, otherwise its been played at home. Perfect condition other than that. I'm the only owner, bought from PMT Music late last year.
Selling to fund further purchases.. but if anyone has an American made Fender Geddy Lee Signature bass to trade, hit me up! Otherwise, sale only. Any more pics or info needed then just ask. I'm in Highams Park, East London for collection but can arrange UK wide shipping for around £35.
I am selling this lovely Jazz Bass, bought new from Coda in Stevenage in 2016.
It is in great condition, despite the relic look, and plays superbly. There is plenty of top end, mid punch and deep lows.
It comes with a custom shop case as well as chrome plates and tool kit.
You are welcome to come and try it out at my place in Watton at Stone, Hertfordshire.
