Up for sale/trade is my really exceptional bass US Lakland 44-64 PJ with the Jazz bass neck profile (nut 1.5" = 38mm).
Serial number BG20 means that is the first year of Bob Glaub - 44-64 production (2001) and it is supposed to be the first PJ in the US Lakland production history.
Alder body, maple neck in quarter-sawn cut (I have never seen such a nice and even cut), rosewood fingerboard, Lake Placid Blue colour, Lindy Fralin pickups, Hipshot tuning machines and special designed bridge with two options of strings installation - "through body" and classic "on bridge", Elixir nickel wound strings, original pickup cover and GATOR foam case included.
Weight 4,3kg. There are couple of scratches and dings on the body but the bass is in great condition at all. This bass sounds really amazing!!!
More photos on request.
Price 1999 GBP + shipping.
So with an imminent arrival of a new bass 😉, I’ve decided to sell my Pre EB ‘82 Stingray... four bolt neck, the neck is straight, trussrod has life left, frets are in pretty good shape. Original preamp with electrolytic capacitors, linear taper volume pot, factory installed protection resister etc and is all very musical and effective, and gives with the pickup that sound only pre-EBs got, as we all well know!
Easy to play with a nice low-medium action, a comfy C-shaped neck and an instrument on light side for a Stingray, weighing in at 9lbs.
Every part of the bass (except strings and 9V battery of course !) is original. There's no date stamp on the neck-heel, but it does happen, as you can see on Music Man inventory (musicmanbass.global).
The bass has a very beautiful dark veneer rosewood fingerboard, which was a custom order option at this time I believe.
Serial number B023268
Bass will be sold with a soft case.
Priced at £1760 shipping and fees (if applicable to your location) are not included.
For trades, only items I would be interested in would be either a Pre EB olympic white fretless Stingray or fretted Sabre.
For sale is my 1979 Pre Ernie Ball Stingray which is in excellent condition for its age. The neck is stamped March 16th 1979 but I can’t see a stamp on the body (see pics) however, the serial number is B012233 which means that it is the 1979 model. The volume and bass pots at marked as 78 and the treble is 79. These can weight up to 11lbs but this one is only 9.3lbs / 4.2kg. There was an issue with the truss rod which I got fixed by Martin at the Bass Gallery in London at a cost of £364 (see pic of receipt) it is now fully functioning and the neck is straight. The bass is all original except for a replacement bone nut. I just did a new setup on this morning and it has low action and been restrung with super slinkies. Feel free to ask any questions via pm. Price is £2,750. Shipping to the UK and the rest of the EU only.

The good people at Ishibashi sent me this old Bacchus Grooveline. I reckon it’s early to mid-2000’s. I’ve been looking for a Stingray with a J neck size for a while and this really fits the bill. It’s a dinky J ash body, weight is a sweet 3.5kg. Maple neck with with blocks and binding is always a winner.
It’s a fixer upper and that was reflected in the price, but these Handmade logo’d Bacchii are always superbly built and the pickups are amazing. Such is the case here, it’s a really good player, even with a duff fret job, old strings and that criminal bbot bridge in place of the Deviser Tune-o-matic. What were they thinking?
I will sort out that crack and replace the bridge and broken tuner. I’m thinking of stripping what is left of the finish and refinishing in an emerald green stain. The previous owner had fingernails like Wolverine, by the looks of it. I’ll also sort out the frets, a level, crown and dress awaits.
Anyone know where a man can buy Gotoh tuner buttons?
