Definitely not looking for trades at all, thanks.
Delano 2 band preamp
Comes with official gig bag.
Trade wise it’s Amps I would be looking for: particularly interested in Ampeg, Mesa & Darkglass. I am willing to travel to make a deal happen, so please don’t be put off that I am in Scotland.
I bought as a spare to leave with a friend in France, but I really only use P Basses now, so this is up for grabs. It includes a basic gig bag.
I would consider trades plus cash for higher valued P Basses.
Vintage are a British brand (manufactured in the Far East) who have a good rep in the press and on BC for instruments that punch way above their price point.

Top Nut: White graphite
Nut Width: 42.5mm
Machine Heads: Wilkinson® WJBL200
Pickups 1 Wilkinson® PB (M) WJB00 (B) WJB800
There are a few nicks and dinks which I have tried to capture as best as possible in the photographs.
It plays very well, setup to 2mm action and is strung with some used D'Addario NYXL roundwounds; I can swap for some lightly used Rotosound Flats if preferred.
No-commitment trials and a brew in Bristol are most welcome.
I can post at buyer's expense and risk (£10-15 estimated).
Bump for price drop: £850 (is it possible to change the thread title?)
Bump for trades: Something smaller bodied and more modern. Warwick etc. Maybe a Maple board P-Bass in an interesting colour. Tempt me.
Fender USA Standard Jazz Fretless. I bought it new in 2016, so it's one of the very final American Standard models, just before they ceased production. For those who are unaware, these have the carbon fiber reinforcement in the neck, custom shop 60's pickups and a high-mass bridge. Sunburst finish, black scratch-plate (although I have the original Tort and will include it). This has barely been gigged - maybe three or four times - and has spent most of its short life in a case. I just don't get on with the offset body, narrow nut and everything else that makes a Jazz what it is. A great bass but not for me. The neck is fantastic and based on the kind of action I can achieve, it must be incredibly true. Extremely clean condition, with just one very tiny dint in the finish located middle of the back of the instrument. I can't get it to show up on a pic though. I've got it strung with the original Fender flats (I think it has rounds in the pic though). Comes with original Fender hard case and with the truss-rod tool. UK shipping will be negotiable. For everybody’s peace of mind, I'd prefer some kind of personal delivery or collection agreement depending on location - I'm happy to drive for an hour or so from Notts or Coventry - but I could courier it if that wasn't practical.

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.
