It does not look like your usual 605 model because....
*DiMarzio JJ pickups
*EMG p/bass pickup
*East UK Uni-Pre active electronics.
*Custom made rosewood scratch plate to accommodate the pickups.
This was put together to use on travel gigs where I need a professional/reliable/flexible instrument and sound without taking an expensive instrument (damn you airlines!!).
Slap, fast/fluid/finger style Jazz, p-bass thump and all the in between styles readily available on this beauty!
In great condition (small nick on the headstock) with few but not obvious or large marks. With chrome hardware! (Updated pics).
The switch is a ‘kill’ switch. I use it as a mute to avoid any unwanted ‘accidents’ live.
Gig bag included.

It's a really nice active super-jazz. Without the offset body. An example of this model demo'd very expertly here:
...by the redoubtable Jeff Andrews (RIP); and this actual bass demo'd significantly less effectively here, by me:
Happy to answer any questions here on the thread or by PM.
Shipping: obvs better for you to come and try out here in Elephant & Castle (I'll provide some socially-distanced biscuits and a cuppa), but if that's not possible, I can ship to you via your choice of courier at your additional expense, or, if it's reasonable, deliver to you in my car for a contribution to the fuel money, whichever is cheaper for you.
Trades: thank you, no.
Many thanks for checking out the ad!
Next up for sale is this excellent Yamaha TRB1005J in natural finish with the quilted top.
I’ve found this to be a light, easy to play and versatile bass and have played it in my function band for a number of years so it does have a few small marks from playing and use, but nothing major and no damage to be concerned about.
Hopefully the pictures show how good it’s condition is. Please PM if you need any additional pics or information.
Meet-up or collection preferred although shipping can be arranged at cost.
