Bought as a back-up bass for gigging but after buying it, I proceeded to break up with the band... typical! The bass has since been in its case, so it’s time for it to go to a new loving home! I have 4 basses in total at the moment.. 4 too many I’m told sometimes! But with my other basses P and a J, I never actually ended up gigging this BB or practicing with it for that matter.
Overall, its in good condition with some signs of wear (dings, chips and bumps) around the jack, some marks on the head stock (see photos) and a few light scratches on the back of the upper horn.
Great punchy BB tone and currently strung with fairly new D’Addario strings (105-45).
This bass is also nice and light @ 9lb 3oz / 4.16 kg
Here I have a beautiful Musicman Stingray in translucent Teal Blue.
The neck and board are maple with some light birds eye maple figuring that give it some extra cool points especially up close.
Made in USA, California, this is a perfect representation of what a Musicman Stingray is and should be!
Official Musicman hardcase and also a lovely Levys gun bag style bass case made in Canada back when they used to make them for Musicman.
The weight is 4.1kg
I'm open to trades, looking for something traditional and ideally 5 string (fender usa jazz, precision, lakland) but I'm open to offers of anything so try me.
Great Fender Jazzbass 1973. All original with OHSC. Very comfortable player, less than 9 lbs/4 kgs on my kitchenscale, good balance,
slim neck and low action. Nice growly fat Jazzbass sound. These early 70's Fenders have something different going on. And oh yes, the bass has
some love signs but all works fine, including the trussrod.
As per title, for sale only is my 1982 Japan built JV Squier Precision bass. (EDIT: May now consider trade for a JV Jazz)
For a near 40 year old bass, it's in very nice condition, with just a few light scratches and "dings" here & there (mainly on the edges of the body)
There's a little light "blooming" on the Tort scratchplate, and light buckle rash on the back in the usual place.
I recently had the frets professionally crowned and polished, by Dave Dearnaley the well known Cardiff Luthier.
This bass sounds lovely and "warm" - absolutely spot on, nailing that vintage P bass tone. It feels lovely and "worn in / played in"
The nut width feels much like any vintage P bass, but I think the neck on these early Japan FugiGen basses have a slightly shallower depth - feels very comfortable to me anyway (and I tend to prefer Jazz necks)
As far as I can see, it's all original. Weight is just about bang on 4kg.
I need to thin the herd, otherwise I'd be keeping this bass - but needs must... I have too many basses!
So no trades please... but I may be tempted if you have a 5 string fretted Wingbass (maybe)
Collection only from Cardiff - but I could be tempted to meet sellers halfway-ish. I've got Vox amp headphones so you can test it.
I could also be tempted to let you have a good deal on an 80's (I believe) Roadworn Fender (G&G) Hardcase - which this bass looks lovely in
Thanks for looking
EDIT: I tried to show some of the light marks & dings - but the bass was too shiny!
