Moon JJ Bass 4 SOLD
£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

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

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

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.

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)

I know, it's a fantastic bass but I just don't think the market is here at the moment! It'll be a forever bass for someone lucky and I would keep it myself If it wasn't for a house purchase!

      See last post below for a new video demo!
      Tentatively putting my Overwater up for sale on here. I'm in no rush to sell it but open to sensible offers. Anyone in the SW London area is welcome to give it a try.
      Anyone who's played one of these knows the kind of quality you can expect from this. It was built for me in 2017 by Chris and the team and would cost around £3500 to have made now I believe. I originally ordered it with an East J Retro which I have since changed for a J Tone giving it a more vintage sound and the versatility of a passive tone control. It will also come with the extra capacitors which are easy to switch out to adjust the roll off of the tone control. I also swapped the pickups from Overwater Ceramic to OWs new Alnico ones. I will include both sets of pickups for the buyer and a Fender Hard Case.
      Spec is below, let me know if you have any questions, it's in very nearly perfect condition, a few marks on the headstock and a couple of tiny dinks on the top of the neck are pictured below. You are welcome to try in Chessington, KT9. I will also consider posting fully insured.
      - Maple 21 fret bolt on neck
      - Nut 46mm
      -19mm string spacing
      -MOP block inlays
      -3mm side dots (1mm bigger than standard for extra visibility)
      -Alder body
      -J Tone Preamp
      -OW Noiseless Alnico Pickups (Ceramics for more HiFi sound also included)
      -Hipshot Ultralight Tuners
      -Custom Seafoam Green Finish
      -35" scale
      Many thanks
      Dan


      The tiny black mark in the picture below was just rubber and has now been cleaned off.

      Bass Centre 4 string bass Inspired by Guy Pratt's '64 Jazz Bass he calls 'Betsy'. Metallic burgundy mist finish with matching headstock. Macassar ebony fingerboard. EMG pickups. Weight is 4kg. Recently purchased and still in new condition, and unfortunately for me the motivation of this sale is due to an unexpected car repair. Includes gig bag and UK delivery. This is an opportunity to own one of these in immaculate condition, but at a saving from the £595 new price. 
      Here's a great review of the bass by the talented gent Mike Brooks :
