Has anybody had a chance to get their hands on one of these yet? What's the verdict? My eldest (8, but a big 8, wears age 14 clothes) is struggling with my selection of full scale basses and he doesn't like the look of the 2 Ibanez short scale offerings... That's my excuse to buy one of these for myself!

I got a white one (even though I said I wouldn`t get another short scale!) a few weeks ago. Plus points: mine is super light, the lightest bass I have owned, the fit and finish is nice, no sharp fret ends which is good at the price point.

Negatives: the stock tuners are crap, they feel like they were made of butter. I hate cheap tuners so changed them for a set of Kluson Vintage ones which are better. But the original tuners might be okay for somebody else, I`m just fussy. The output from the pickups is quite low and I will try and raise the pickups a tad see if that improves things.

Overall a well made bass for the price.

I bought the green one. Love it but it does lack the bass end the 51 cv has. But it has the p bass growl but because of the lighter wood it lacks low end. For me that’s fine

      Fantastic unique Squier VM fretless jazz with upgrades. Refinished in Graffiti Yellow, fitted with replica tort plate and genuine Fender bridge and pickup covers. Body in mint condition apart from a few minor surafce marks to bottom and side edges and one small ding on the rear top contour as shown, otherwise like new. Replaced stock neck with Mexican Fender pau ferro, mint condition and lemon oiled for a lovely finish. Previously fitted with an active preamp and still has side mounted jack if wanted to upgrade. Strung with Picato flats, nice and worn in.
      Prefer local collection (somehow) as out of boxes to send (at buyer's cost). Cheers!

      REDUCED TO £460
      Selling an INCREDIBLE 2013 Fender Modern Player Jazz Bass with the sought after 30” short scale length in beautiful trans White Blonde with a 3 Ply Tort Pickguard, P/J configuration Pickups, Rosewood fretboard and a Fender Hi Mass Bridge. 

      Only around 200 of these were Made in China in 2013 so grab a beautiful example of a rare, amazing sounding and easy to play Fender Modern Player Jazz that’s a little different because of its shorter 30” scale length (like a Mustang bass), and the incredible sounding P/J pickup configuration.

      Bass is in fantastic condition with only one slight ding on the back of the headstock (pictured below the serial number), a slight scratch on the back of the neck (doesn’t affect feel or playability at all) and there are two holes in the scratch plate if you wanted to insert a thumb-rest / tug bar as is quite popular on a lot of basses these days.

      The high gloss urethane lacquer over the white blonde finish really is phenomenal - the photos just don’t show how clear the wood grain shows through the lacquer! This was a common finish (in different colours) on many of the Fender American Deluxe series of bases in the late 90’s / early 00’s.

      The P/J pickup configuration provides classic, punchy tones having the best of both, and the short scale length makes this bass perfect for live and recording. 
      It’s a much more versatile bass (IMO) than the Fender JMJ signature bass or any other Mustang Bass / Short Scale Fender because of the versatile pickup configuration, and it’s ideal for any player who prefers a lighter weighing bass (great for those who play longer gigs!) 

      The scale = Short Scale, 30" (762 mm), according to official Fender specs.

      The Fender high mass bridge provides more contact to the body, increasing sustain and enabling perfect intonation with the adjustable bridge saddles.

      It comes with a one piece 3-ply tortoiseshell pickguard that also replaces the chrome control plate on standard Jazz basses - a nice touch aesthetically.
      The bass has been fully set up, cleaned and intonated ready for the new owner. 
      Full specs can be seen here: https://www.gak.co.uk/en/fender-modern-player-short-scale-jazz-bass-white-blonde/100117

      Bass doesn’t come with a gig bag or case unfortunately. 

      Cash on Collection ONLY (WON'T BE POSTING) from North Greenwich in South East London, adhering to social distancing rules, thought I may be able to deliver depending on your location (I travel to the Midlands quite frequently).

      If you would like any more photos or information please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

      Fender American Performer Mustang Short Scale Bass in Aubergine Red 
      In 9.9 condition virtually immaculate can’t find a mark on it !
      Made in USA / 30” scale / Rosewood fingerboard / comes with Fender short scale gig bag / case candy tags etc / Jazz Pick Up cover changed for solid, the original will be supplied and easily refitted although I think the solid looks much better!
      Versatile, punchy and articulate is the best way to describe it, fit, finish and hardware is excellent 
      Collection from Oakham, Rutland LE15 6QA 
      Will post at buyers expense with the neck removed and packaged like a tank or meet within a reasonable distance for dodgy distanced car park dealings  !!

      Bought from Basschatter Marc S in Nov 2017. PJ mods, Entwhistle p/ups done under his ownership ( Dave Dearnley iirc). The work has been done to a very high standard. I’ve barely played it and gigged it twice.Playing my Jazz bass almost exclusively now but even so I think I may regret letting this one go. Excellent condition just a couple of minor scratches on rear of body. Usual Classic Vibe build quality,one of the darkest rosewood boards i’ve ever seen. Weight- just a smidge over 9lb/4kg. I’ll include the gig bag it came with. Collection preferred (i’m not far from M5  junction 26)but could do a meet up.

      Price Drop to £590! 
      Hi all,
      I've had a rare opportunity to consolidate some cash and buy something I've wanted for ages, so I'm putting this up for sale (even though I just bought it!).
      Apparently, these were only made for a year during the late nineties but there is some good information here if you're interested. It's a great example with fairly minimal wear however there are some visible marks and nicks along the edge of the neck and the plastic on top of the pickup is curling away (which apparently is fairly common) but I don't mind it as it makes it easier to root my thumb to the pickup.  Electronics all work fine and the truss rod turns without issue. Tuners are in great condition too.
      Price is £625 firm and am happy for buyer to arrange courier, or it can be picked up from Birmingham. If couriered, it will be very well packaged. Payment by Bank Transfer or cash only please.
      Happy to throw in some brand new LaBella Black Nylons (short scale) if purchased before October.
      And now for the pics:
