Moon JJ Bass 4 . FS of FT
£1000
Hertfordshire

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This really is an initial feeler.

I picked up this wonderful Moon JJ 4 from the Bass Gallery in Camden in August this year and I’m only considering trading/ selling it due to financial reasons.

 

its an incredibly lovely sounding bass guitar however it is pretty heavy. It was set up with flats upon purchasing and they are now worn in nicely.

in truth I don’t know too much about it, when purchasing it the guys at the Gallery believed it was old (80’s) however not too much more info than that.

I am interested in trading for a lower value Jazz Bass (4 strings only please) and cash my way. Interested to hear offers and happy to answer questions!

I’ll see if I can get a weight.

to be honest didn’t know the pickups weren’t original. I’ve never seen pickups like them before. They sound superb

as mentioned I was not aware of the pickups. I bought it as this 3 months ago. You can see the info on the Bass Gallery’s website

those are standard 80's Moon Pickups.  They're original.

I very much doubt they the original Moon pickups. I could be totally wrong. 😆I thought they used Barts in the 80s Moon Jazz basses. Why would they route them like that unless the casings are missing.Lovely bass though.

I can say quietly that those pills you ride are original I have had several Moons that have the same ones for low passives. It's bad not knowing what their name is. A bass demolition in sound without a doubt and beautiful but very heavy to play long sessions. It's from the early '80s. Victor Baley was wearing one and so was Larry Graham. Luck with the sale I love the Moons

they're original. I've sold many Moon's like that over the years through my store. 

that bass is very very early 80's.

I’m sure I’ll regret it but it has to go.

just for info I’ve removed the pickguard and there’s no damage underneath (apart from the screw holes)

      Pricedrop 2.900 € open for offers => I'm looking for a Le Fay Remington Steele 6 String
      The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
      The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.

      PRICE DROP!! - Was £350, £325, £300, £275.... now just £250!

      VISA card needs paying back so here we have my fantastic original Japanese made (late 80's) Fernandes Ltd Edition PJ60 Bass in eye-catching bold red.
      Basswood body
      Maple bolt-on neck
      Rosewood board
      Black hardware
      FGI active P/J pickups & preamp (like EMGs) for every tone you could possibly require!
      Vol/Bal/Treb/Bass controls
      Usual fantastic Japanese build quality. This is no entry level instrument - feels, plays & sounds great in any professional environment. A crazily good bass and an absolute bargain!!



      This instrument is in fantastic condition with just a few very light dings and plays beautifully. Very slim and playable neck and a wide tonal palette. It sounds hugely resonant unplugged (always a good sign!) and this is continued when plugging in!

      I'll be sad to see it go & only selling to clear some debt so not looking for any trades/offers. Bass is located in Guildford/Woking area and I can courier at buyers expense (prob approx £30-£40) or can meet in South East England for petrol. Payment by cash, bank transfer or Paypal (you pay all fees) only please.



      Please see my extensive positive feedback record for assurance of a smooth and honest transaction.

      For sale a 1984 Squier JV Jazz bass. It looks to be complete and original as far as I can see. It is road worn. It has been gigged hard and has signs of this all over. If you like the worn look mojo then you will love this.
      It plays great and is set up with a nice low action. Please ask any questions and if you want any more pics then no problem. I am based in Exeter and I am happy for people to try it out. Unfortunately I don't have a spare hard case atm so shipping is not recommended. It will come with a gig bag.
      The price is £850 collected from Exeter. I could possibly meet within a reasonable distance from Exeter if that was helpful.
      Have a look at the pics and message me if genuinely interested.
      Will consider trades with Fender Jazz basses either way.
