Excellent condition Squier VM Precision 5 string in candy apple red. Plays extremely well.
The only mark is on the end of the headstock - see the photos.
Only used as a backup, this has been played very little and the frets are as new. Now surplus to requirements as I have just purchased a Variax 705.
Come and try it in my home studio. If you want it shipped then it will be at cost. I have a cardboard guitar box so it will be well protected.

On Squier CV bass, picked originally over a fender MiM bass (which was actually not much more expensive) because it sounded and played better, not because of some inferiority complex as some people would have you believe
I have kept this bass for several years because it had sentimental value, but it has been sitting around unplayed for several years and that is a bit pointless. All my basses are regularly gigged apart from this one, that hasn't been gigged since my last group 4 years ago. Because of the sitting around it does have crackling volume control, I will take that apart and spray it to see if it makes a difference.
The other thing that kept me not wanting to sell it is the look of the neck when playing it - it really is nicer looking than all the other fender styles I had apart from the flame maple on my Maruszczyk. Unfortunately the thing that stops me playing it is I could park a truck between the strings, and for someone who thinks that the 16.5mm string spacing on the ibanez is a bit agrophobic, the 19mm+ spacing on these is way too much for me.
So in the end I decided to trade it for a jazz, and as no trades came up here, I bought a jazz and now have to sell this.
I have the metal plate thing that gets in the way of the bridge in a box somewhere which I could add.
I am currently lacking boxes as nothing I bought recently had one, so pickup is best for me, and any offers really depend on closeness. I can deliver or meet people within 30-40 miles of yeovil and I get to bath and bristol often, and maybe also exeter at weekends.
The bass is in great condition for the age.
recently setupped with fresh strings (dunlop super bright)
low action and great playability
it has a badass II bridge and Fender USA reissue ‘62 pickups as upgrade
shipping to negotiate at buyer expense
1000 eur / 870 GBP
Up for grabs is a brand new, never fitted pearloid scratch plate (or pick guard if you prefer!) for a Fender Mexican PJ Mustang.
It has not been fitted to a bass and it still has the protective plastic film over it.
£20 posted within the UK please, or £15 collected from sunny Wellingborough.

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!
