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.
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!
It's with heavy heart that I put this bass up for sale, but needs must (with redundancy and a future house-move on the cards).
In great condition for its' age, and a lovely player, with gorgeous vintage sound
There are a few dinks and dings on the bass, including a 2mm x 1.5mm x 1mm dink on the back of the neck, around fret 11 - easily filled, though it never bothered me actually.
There's a light "bloom" of buckle rash in the usual place, which isn't easy to photograph.
The main thing to say about this bass, is that it's otherwise in great condition given it's approaching 40 years old. Somehow, this bass just feels and sounds absolutely awesome - it has a real vintage tone and feel. These basses are rated very highly by people who own and play them, and you have to try one to understand quite why. It's the best feeling and sounding P bass I've ever played.
With the job situation being as it is, I have to sell something (not urgently - so no daft offers please) - I just need to thin the herd, as we will be moving house within the next 8 - 10 months, and are down-sizing. I'm gigging with another P bass these days - only because it is slightly lighter weight, and is another great bass. I can no longer justify 3x P basses, plus my P/J Limelight. I may even list another P over the coming days, and keep this one.... as I'm so torn
It weighs in at just a shade over 4kg - so is no boat anchor. Like I say, I've got 2 other P's which are lighter - though neither is in my favourite 3TSB, Rosewood, Tort combo. Mrs S said to me the other day "Do you really need two basses the same colour?" of my Roadworn Jazz! I had the bass set up, including a light fret-dress & level, by A-strings of Treforest, near Pontypridd. The frets are in good condition, with plenty of life left in them. I believe everything else is original on the bass (as I was told by the previous BC owner). I did change the control knobs for an old 70's set, as they were in better condition (re the chrome)
It's currently wearing a set of worn-in Thomastik Flats. It came with some Dunlop flats, and I tried several other strings, but decided it just felt better with the TI's. I can let you have the Dunlops, or a new set of rounds if you prefer? But I'll leave the TI's on, as they just seem to suit the bass
Based in North Cardiff - but I can meet somewhere half way, as I've got amp headphones and a battery amp (Roland) to test at the ubiquitous Motorway services / pub
Please note I am NOT looking for any trades at all, and would prefer not to post (abroad or UK) - I also want you to try this bass, and fall for it, like I did, and to know that you've got it safely in your hands
In this moment of madness, as I'm typing this, I may decide to either sell another bass instead, or else change my mind completely.... lol
I'm asking slightly less than what I paid for it, given that I had the work done on the bass
For sale is my Squier Classic Vibe 50s style tele bass in Butterscotch/blonde finish, fitted with D'addario Nylon Tapewound strings. This model in this finish is now discontinued.
Anyone who has played a Classic Vibe series bass will know that their quality, sound and playability far surpasses the price tag. The bass plays very smoothly, great chunky neck, action set fairly low and the pickup sounds lovely, warm and thumpy paired with the Tapewound strings. Electronics in good working order as is the truss rod and all other hardware. Bass is all original and pretty much 'as new' aside from a bit of discolouration of some of the hardware (as can be seen on the neck plate, machine-heads in the photos) none of which affects the playability or general workings of the bass.
Bought a few years ago as a practice bass and has only really been used at home and in two rehearsals in total. Selling to free up some space in my little flat.
This bass is really well made, plays and records as a fender/squier should.
Cash on collection from SE4 (London) preferred as I've no box to ship the bass.
