1982 Squier JV Precision, 3TSB, Rosewood, Tort EDIT: Trade for JV Jazz
£775
Cardiff

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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! ;)

Yes, I've still got my 32" Medium Scale Japan P bass too. (Think that's a keeper, as it's even rarer, and compact & lightweight)
Haven't totally made up my mind as to my next sale yet.... the jury is still out - but I've got basses I'm not playing much :(

I'm going to be in Cardiff the weekend of the 17th April so could pick this up for anyone who wants it in the South-East and can't get to Cardiff to pick it up.

Sorry, not coming now. Blame the virus :(

Hi would you ship to Europe? Thanks

Hi, I'd prefer not to post thanks.

I like to make sure the new owner is happy with the bass too.

Thanks

To anyone interested - I'll now throw in that G&G Fender Hardcase for free - can't say fairer than that
I'll try to get some pics of the case shortly - but you know what these cases look like, it's mid-brown faux leather covering, and dark brown fur lined.....

Just a note to say, I'm due a trip along the M4, around the Reading area - if anyone fancies meeting me there.

Beautiful!  Identical to the one I had in the mid 80s - what a lovely bass it was.  I PX it for an old 4001 and while I certainly don't regret buying the Rick (I still have it) I wish I could have afforded to have both.  And now I wish I had the money to buy this beauty.  GLWTS 🙂

Nice - I missed my 83 Squier so much, I’ve just bought a 76p.

@Stuee has my old one and won’t sell it back - they’re that good!

@lee650 you need this

Just a thought. But I might consider a swap for a JV Jazz bass
(I could sell my Roadworn Jazz then, and get to that "N minus one" position I'd like to be in....)

      Fender American Elite Precision
      I took this bass in a trade with @karlfer a few months back but I’m on a bit of a mission to clear out kit that isn’t getting much use so I’m moving it on.
      It’s a great bass with a fabulous neck with its flatter radius as it nears the dusty end. Switchable active and passive with a wide range of tones from the rather impressive P and J pickups.
      In the brief time I’ve had it I’ve fitted a black/white/black plate from WD which to my eyes looks far, far better than the original pearl plate (obviously also included). I've included a couple of Karl's pics showing the bass with it's original plate and also the case candy (hope you don't mind fella)!
      Specifications
       
      ·        Model: Fender American Elite Precision ·        Year of Manufacture: 2017 ·        Country of Manufacture: USA BODY

      ·        Weight 3.96kg / 8lb 12oz  
       
      The bass is in beautiful condition with the only fault of note being an area of very light buckle rash which is only really noticeable when viewing the back of the bass at an angle to the light. Comes complete with the Elite case and case candy
      To me these basses are outstanding value and I’m selling it at what it owes me which is £1030.
      Ordinarily shipping wouldn’t be a problem but I don’t currently have any boxes/card nor am I in a position to go out and source some, so for now it is collection only* although this may change (*strictly observing social distancing measures of course).

      Here we have a 2019 Lefty Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision in 3TS with tort pickguard for sale.

      This is a welcome return to production of Squier Ps since the P Special was discontinued some years ago. Bought on a whim from PMT Manchester last autumn but has barely been played and has never left the house. I recently acquired a medium scale Precision which suits me better so this is surplus to requirements.

       These Indonesian CV Squiers are great instruments for the money and prices are climbing in some retailers.

      Poplar body with a C-shaped tinted maple neck and laurel fretboard. This one is neither overly light nor dark, it's a fairly standard example from what I've seen. Fender-designed alnico pickup and stock chrome hardware. Weighs ~3.8kg.
      No gig bag or case.

      Classic looking bass, perfect if you want a Jamerson vibe!

      Can ship at buyer's expense, collection from Oldham or Manchester maintaining social distancing or I can deliver within Greater Manchester or surrounding areas within reason.
      6/6/20 - price drop to £180

      Great Fender Jazzbass 1973 with OHSC. Apart from the bridge pickup being replaced with a same but ‘75 grey bottom at some time it is 100% original. 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.

      1996 Yamaha RBX360 in dark natural finish. Solid alder body, rosewood and maple neck. In good overall condition, small dings and scratches commensurate with age. Usual excellent Yamaha build quality. Everything is fully working. Has a brand new set of Fender vintage (pure nickel) strings.
      £110 + £20 postage to UK Mainland only.

      Hi all,
      For sale only (no trades), my beautiful 1966 Fender Precision in fantastic condition, all original (as far as I am aware) with original finish and original Fender hard case (including Fender catalogue).
      This is a player’s bass, not a case queen, but has been extremely well cared for by previous owners as well as by me.
       It has light signs of wear and some dings as you’d expect a 54 year old to have. I’ve gigged the bass extensively in the time I’ve owned it and always kept/transported it in a Hiscox LiteFlite case, not the OHSC.
      Apart from some minor body chips and scratches there are a couple of small dents in the neck behind frets 1-3 but these aren’t noticeable under the hand. There’s also some lovely light checking to the lacquer on the headstock and rear of the body. I’ve tried to capture these as best I can with my phone camera.
      Pups, pots, wiring and solder joints all look all original. The pups are still bonded to the black foam and backing plate. No dating is evident and I didn’t want to risk separating them to try and find out.
      Pots are stamped 6618 which I believe is week 18 of 1966 (kindly correct me if I’m wrong).
      The date stamp on the neck is partially faded and obscured by red ink but this is how it was when I bought it. To my eyes it reads 5 MAY 66 C. The neck is classic P chunky, solid and straight with a fully functioning truss rod and reverse tuners on the headstock.
      Beautiful striping on the rosewood fingerboard and there’s plenty of life left in the slim frets. The bass is currently strung with LaBella flats.
      Comfortably light, on the digital bathroom scales it comes in at 8.6 lbs / 3.9 kg.
      The case has a few dings and a couple of smallish rips but inside is clean and plush and all catches and hinges function (I don’t have the keys though). It came to me with a 1967-68 Fender catalogue inside which is in lovely condition and a really nice piece of history.
      This is a beautiful example of a mid-60’s P bass with a classic full burpy sound that sits so well in the band mix.
      Now... I know there are some real vintage aficionados and experts on the forum so in the spirit of openness and honesty I want to mention 3 things;
      Control knobs. These are more than likely the originals but still look brand new. I have no way of knowing as these were the knobs it came to me with but I am just saying as someone pointed it out to me.
      Ashtrays. Both are in really good clean condition and I believe are the originals. They show light scratching close up which doesn’t come out in the photos. Inside the bridge cover there is no evidence left of any foam mutes but there is some surface roughness in that area.
      E string tuner. Fully operational and stable but a bit stiffer than the other 3. I’ve had it apart and lubricated it, can’t see anything wrong, so it’s a bit better but wanted to point this out to potential buyers. 
      I’m offering this bass for sale only (no trades thank you) at a competitive price based on what I’ve seen similar condition basses advertised by reputable dealers.
      I’m happy to ship within UK only at the buyer’s expense or arrange personal socially-distanced collection within a reasonable radius (location KT18).
      No EU/overseas transactions due to CITES restrictions still in force around Brazilian rosewood.
      (More photos are available if needed).
      Many thanks for any interest!
      David
