FS: Limelight Jazz Bass, Sherwood Green
Seaford, East Sussex

Recommended Posts

I'm reluctantly selling my Limelight Jazz Bass, serial 00201, as I have another couple of jazzes & this is rather surplus to requirements.

This is a lovely example of Mark's work down at Cool & Classic guitars, a take in looks on a '75 but to me it feels more like a '62. Lovely to play, typical jazz sounds (the maple board making it sound edgier than my rosewoods) & it looks great with the matching headstock & tort scratchplate.

At present it's got a Babicz bridge on it (I put these on all my basses), which I think looks great as a contrast to the lightly-reliced body, but I can put the original back on if required; I'll include it anyway. It also has Schaller straplocks on it, again I can put the originals on if required.

Another nice thing, for me, is that the matching headstock has the Limelight logo instead of the usual Fender logo - I love Mark's basses (I've had 4) so I think this adds to rather than detracts from the overall look.

Collection from Seaford or around Brighton, I can deliver within a reasonable distance of either Seaford or Oxford, where I work during the week. I'd prefer not to have to post/courier, but try me (postage at purchaser's expense).

Thanks for looking!

That's lovely.  I've got 0202 ('63 red fretless jazz).  

Excellent - I used to have 00103 ('59 Precision) & 00105 ('62 Jazz), I regret selling both but you can only have so many!! But I'm keeping 00135, a '60 jazz in Burgundy. Beautiful!

Yes, I was really taken by the colour & the matching headstock.

very nice bass

what about the weight ?

I don't know exactly, no scales, sadly, but it's on the heavy side of a jazz, weighs similar to my '79 Precision, if that's any help? Not as heavy as a Sire Marcus Miller, but significantly heavier than my Maruszczyk Elwood.

Sorry I can't be more exact on this!

      Lovely Sire V7 2nd generation fretless in olympic white. Low action, slim and straight neck and loads of fretless mwhaaa. Bought in June 2019 and in perfect condition.

      Currently strung with D’Addario XL rounds, but happy to provide the original D’Addario flats the bass came with.

      It got me hooked on fretless and I’m upgrading, hence the sell.
      Collection in London only, please. Thanks for looking!
