Reluctant sale of my beloved Candy Apple Red Fender JV P bass. OPEN TO OFFERS. (Be quick before I change my mind...)
More photos to follow early next week.
Reason for sale: I have found myself with 3 Ps and I have my eyes on a unique P bass and can’t justify 4 Ps. I know I’ll regret this sale.
This thing has done me well. Played many a gig from small clubs to big festival stages, always strung with flats (except a short period this year where I had rounds on it) never has it sounded anything but great. Nothing plays like this thing and it sure sounds huge!
You already know about JV Fenders so no need to explain. I got this Via Pierre from Bass Freaks at the very beginnings of his shop. (I think I was one of his first customers) Essentially he sourced this direct from Japan a good 4 to 5 years ago for me. (I hope he doesn’t mind me name dropping). He still has only come a cross a couple other CAR P basses since finding this one.
It’s all original, except for the addition of the thumb rest that was done at The Bass Gallery the year I bought it, and has been very well looked after. It was recently set up at The Gallery and is strung with Thomastik flats. Plays wonderfully as you’d expect.
It’s in good condition considering it’s age. There is a few dings and scratches but nothing serious. The worst of it is some dings on the top where your right arm rests but it is by no means bad, just a small portion of paint missing. Nothing to worry about, I just want to be clear and honest. (photos to follow in the next few days). The neck is in very very good condition, as is the fretboard.
The fretboard is a lovely dark piece of rosewood.
I have played it next to a 1963 P bass and this really does do it as well as the original.
Anyways. Enough blabbing. More photos will follow, I’m out on a tour so I have a few photos from gigs etc of the bass. Some proper photos will follow early next week.
Please do contact me if you want to send me offers, or want more photos. I’m open to it.
Will supply a generic hardcase with it. Will happily restring it with Rounds if the sale is made free of charge.

I have another bass in-coming, so one has to go, and up for sale is my Squier Contemporary Active HH Jazz 5-string in black. I bought this new in December 2018, and I have used it at a few gigs and jams, and it sounds great, especially with the wide variety of tones you can get from the two humbuckers with the bass and treble boosts. It can really growl as well as honk. It would be a slapper’s delight, but I do not do slap!
The bass is essentially in as new condition, all original.
Specification details and video review available on the Andertons website here
Strung with d’Addario EXL170’s.
I can post the bass if required, but personal collection and try-out preferred. I live near Stroud in Gloucestershire.
This is the best guitar I've ever owned (and played). I was never much of a P-bass person, but this is just so nice in every way. Incredibly well balanced and the tone is just beautiful, both passive and active. It's one of these things you can just plug in and not worry about anything. I am very sad to get rid of it, but a recent reality check means I'm selling it (and most of my other stuff).
I bought this brand new from bassdirect.co.uk for an "offer" price of £2,200 (this is the actual listing: http://w.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/Xotic_XP4_Sherwood_Green.html). Since then, it has never left the house (apart from when I moved house) and been looked after extremely well. You're basically getting a new instrument if you buy this - even the plastic film is still on the scratch plate.
I think the colour is awesome on this bass, but I guess that's a matter of taste.
It comes with the original case, which is fantastic.
I'm not interested in any trades, sorry. I need to get rid of stuff, not just replace one thing with another.
Local pickup preferred but I'm willing to meet somewhere not too far from home (South London). Alternatively, I'm in Worthing 2-3 days a week for work, so I could bring it down there if that suits. If you want it delivered, you will have to pay for fully insured posting.
Happy to answer any questions.
(Ps. I'm also selling a Sadowsky Metro 5, Sire Marcus Miller V7, Markbass CMD 121H combo, and some effects and stuff - look out for those postings as well, if you're interested.)
PRICE DROP: £240
Offering up my Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz Bass for sale. These are highly regarded and for good reason: fantastic quality, super-solid and with a beautiful neck. Plays as well as any bass I own or have owned, and with a Gotoh 201 bridge, Di Marzio DP 123 pick-ups and a Kiogon ‘push/pull’ loom will be more than a match for many other modern Jazzes. Knobs swapped out too for a more authentic look. A few small bruises as shown. Selling as it just doesn’t get the playing time it truly deserves and I just seem to be more of a Precision man! Original pickups also supplied. Collection from near Oxford initially please: questions welcomed!
