I am selling a great sounding and nice to play classic Jazz Bass: Alder Body, Pao Ferro Fretboard, Fender Vintage PUs, 4 Kg, nice aging.
The Bass was build around 2010/11 in the first Line of the Roadworn Series. The Parts are all american but the Bass was assembled in Mexico. Its a great Jazz Bass with Vintage Feel and classic vintage Jazz Bass Sound, that always fits in the mix.
EU Shipping is no problem, feel free to ask any Questions.
PLEASE be aware that as the bass is in France, there might be import charges or delay to the UK.
No probs with the rest of Europe.
For sale is this rather uncommon Yamaha SuperBass800, made in Japan in 1978 and still in very good condition.
- Alder body
- 1 piece quartersawn maple neck with natural white block inlays, gloss finish
- 42mm nut : a Jazz bass with a Precision neck
- "Progressive" headstock and back of neck design 😎
- 4 to 4.1kg : under 9lbs
Following the Yamaha BB serial chart, the SB800 was made in 1978.
It has the same sturdy bridge and general construction as the BroadBass series with 2 jazz pickups : Vol / Vol / Tone
The neck pickup has a Precisionesque tone, it is overall quite woody.
Absolutely no buzz.
It is just back from the luthier for a general check-up and set up : the trussrod works fine but is almost to a maximum, set up with 45-105s.
Here is for the neck :

I can include a brand new Gator GL lightweight case worth 55€ as I prefer not so ship with neck off.
Any questions or further pics needed, please ask.
£799 (ono) delivered in UK only, or pick up from Brighton.
Through gritted teeth I am selling my Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass. It's a long story, but I ended up buying two Road Worns at the same time, and I prefer the red one. I'd like to keep a stack-knob too, but my bank would disapprove and my wife would leave me.
Nice dark rosewood board, faded shell pink lacquer, CS64 pups and weighs 4.1kg according to the bathroom scales. Comes in a new-looking Fender gig bag.
Full disclosure: This is a 2016 bass, but with a (genuine, new) 2020 replacement body purchased from Stratosphere in the US [eBay listing here].
It is 100% stock apart from:
Kiogon solderless loom replacing the original pots and wiring *
Genuine Fender brass external earthing strip (purely decorative)
Genuine Fender Road Worn strap button on rear of headstock (largely decorative).
* Knobs and plate are original, only pots and wiring are changed - shout if you'd like the originals included.
You probably won't like my wussy light strings and cig-paper action, so allow for that. The neck is straight and the truss works just fine. All the electrical bits work just fine and sound ace.

Ask about any other stuff if you like. I'm open to offers but not silly ones, as I need to recoup some costs.
