I picked up an Amber v1 model recently.

Outstanding, does everything you need a 6 to do. 

It is a beautiful instrument and resonant all the way across the range

Want this soooo much trying to justify spending that much though

It is an amazing bass, has to be seen in person and played to appreciate how good it really is!

Just to let you know I recently saw a BBNE2 for sale on here for £1475? It was a very cheap deal but I just thought you should know how cheap these basses can go for so as not to undervalue your bass if you're considering a straight swap. Good luck.

That being said the last TRBJP2 that sold on here went for £1400 so price can be very subjective as to how quickly a seller wants to sell and how soft the market is.

Oh I see. I thought these basses were around the 2k mark.

All depends on how quickly a seller wants to sell! I myself have sold a few basses for quite a bit under 'market value' because I wanted them gone ASAP to facilitate another purchase. 

If you're happy to wait a while, then someone will eventually come along and pay the asking price!

Ah okay didn't realise that, thought the market value was a bit more! Thanks for letting me know. 

Will keep an eye out

      Up for sale my top of the line, hand crafted in Japan, Yamaha Bb2025x - as used by Nathan East, Leland Sklar, Amos Heller, Tony Kanal and Michael Anthony.  Managed to get one in NOS a few months ago. Pretty difficult to find one of these days and still in mint condition. One of the most amazing basses I've played but have not played it often outside of the studio, where I tend to favour Jazz basses, so cutting a bit my collection. Hand crafted in Japan. A.R.E. and I.R.A. treated wood gives it a very broken in, and responsive feel. 
      Specs:
      Fingerboard: Maple Body: Alder Neck: Maple/Mahogany Scale Length: 34" Fingerboard: Rosewood Finish: Vintage White Pickups: Alnico Split Single (Neck), Ceramic Bar Single (Bridge) Pickup Switch: 3P Toggle Switch Pickguard: Black Hardware: Chrome 5-String bass guitar Low B 5th string for greater presence and heavy low-end Nickel Silver Nut Diagonal Body Thru Stringing A.R.E. and I.R A. Treatment Made in Japan Comes with Yamaha hardshell case Plenty of feedback:

      Hello,
      For sale is my lovely Archer 3/4 size professional double bass.
      This bass has served me very very well for five years, it sounds beautiful and it's super comfortable to play.

      Could really do with moving this on hence a PRICE DROP to £700

      Bought this from new in June last year. It looks and sounds great and has tonnes of versatility. Unfortunately though my hands are just too small for the 35" scale and it's not getting the love it deserves. The finish really is quite impressive in the flesh and it's been incredibly well cared for. 

      Specs (from https://www.yamahamusiclondon.com/TRB-1006J-6-String-Bass-Guitar-Natural/pidGTRB1006JNT)
      General Construction: Bolt-on Scale Length: 35" (889.0mm) Body Finish: Gloss Polyurethane Neck Materials: Maple / Mahogany (or Nato) 5-Piece Neck Finish: Satin Polyurethane Fingerboard Materials: Rosewood Fingerboard Radius: 40" (1000 mm) Fret wire: Medium Number of frets: 24 Nut materials: Bone Width @ 0 Fret / 12th Fret: 50.0 / 73.6 mm Thickness @ 1st Fret / 12th Fret: 20.0 / 24.0 mm Neck Pickup: Humcanceled Single Coil / Alnico V Middle Pickup: - Bridge Pickup: Humcanceled Single Coil / Alnico V Controls: Master Volume, Pickup Balancer, 3-Band EQ(Bass, Middle, Treble) Pickup Switch:  - Bridge: Solid Brass String spacing: 17mm Tailpiece: - Tuning Machines: Die-cast Pickguard: - String gauge: D'Addario EXL170-6SL /0.032-0.130 Super Long (6 strings) Case/Bag: not included  
      Based in Bristol, cash on collection would be preferred but I would be open to considering shipping. Any questions please do ask!

      A rare Yamaha SB-50 Bass for sale from around 1973. This is a cool bass, well gigged but solid and sounding great. It has a medium scale and a distinctive German carve - or pie crust look. It’s all original but missing the bridge mute and pickup ashtrays. These appear to be quite collectible and crop up on Talkbass occasionally with the predictable daft prices on Reverb. It’s one of Yamaha’s first original basses and it’s quirky ‘Les Paul by Dali’ looks will make you stand out on stage! It’s also very red…..
      It weighs around 4kgs sounds really very good from old school rock to modern tones. I was amazed by how versatile it is. Plays well and the neck is great too.
      Not sure how to price it but it’s definitely a sale only and I won’t be sending it overseas - sorry. Let’s try £295 - certainly a change from a MIM Precision. 
      Note there is a crack on the lacquer in the body but this hasn’t effected neck stability. 
       
      My cat loves it! More pics to follow.

      I've had my Yamaha SLB200 for a little while now and I think it's possibly the nicest EUB I've played - both in terms of the tone and playability. Not long ago I put on some synthetic evah slap strings and I think it gives a fairly convincing old school tone. Here's a short video example. Any other SLB200 users out there? I'd love to know if there are any mods that can give an even more convincing double bass sound.
