Cool and rare Gibson from the '70s. Apparently less then 1.000 were made, so there aren't too many of them around.
As you can see from the pictures, the bass has been used. It has a lot of user marks and finish checking all over. The bridge has been replaced (original one in poor condition is still there), as well as the truss rod cover. It should be mentioned that the plastic cover of the bridge pickup has broken at the point where the adjustment screw enters. Someone tried to melt it together again, but its still loose. I've set the hight, and left it this way.
Further this bass is in good functional condition. The neck is straight and all hardware and electronics function like they should.
This bass plays and sounds great. It has an open, clear and full punchy sound. Not what is usually expected from a Gibson. It's also a very light instrument; my kitchen scale says it's only 3,35 kilos!
The original hardcase is included.
Asking €1.100 (approx £975)
The bass is located in the Netherlands. Shipping is not a problem.
Up for sale is my exceptional Moollon Classic P bass.
Alder body, dark ebony fretboard on quartersawn maple neck, fiesta red nitro finish. I am sure you see where is the inspiration - Pino
Bass comes from 2013 and used to be real workhorse. Thanks to this and ultra thin nitro finish it started to age very nicely - it has rather matte finish, hardware has great patina and oxidation. Everything you would expect from bass being as much as possible close to pre-CBS Fenders. Nothing shiny and museum-like here. Check pictures, MOJO.
Lightweight at 3,8kg.
Bass comes with its OHSC and is located in Czech Republic.
Price is £1900 OBO, write me a PM and we can talk shipping, have a lot of experience with EU shipping.
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!
Carvin PB5 for sale. In mint condition! incl. original hardcase. A very well made and great playing passive P bass. The bass is pretty light (will weigh it later tonight) and has a string spacing of 19mm.
That's also the reason I'm selling it, I like the 17,5 mm on my Stingray 5 better. The bass is located in the Netherlands but safe and secure shipping is not a problem. I have send quite a lot of basses to the UK without any problems. For more info or a soundsample send me a message!
Asking price is 685 gbp. Trades are possible, 4/5/6 strings, fretted/fretless, just give it a try!
PB5 General Specifications:
scale length 34"
rosewood fingerboard with white dot inlays,
Carvin locking bridge, strings through body
19 mm Stringspacing at the bridge
For sale is this rather fetching Fender Elite Precision PJ which I bought new last May, and has been used for a couple of gigs and a session, so is in very good condition.
Alder body, maple neck and ebony fingerboard. Metallic jade finish looks green-tinted gold, with parchment tort scratchplate and chrome hardware.
The Elites have a number of nice features over previous series, including:
Compound neck profile - C at the nut through to D up the neck
Improved neck joint and cutaway
HiMass bridge, bone nut
Spoke wheel truss rod adjustment
Fender Elite Precision neck pickup, Fender Noiseless bridge pickup
18 V preamp with bass, mid and treble controls
Active/passive switch, treble becomes a tone control in passive
Option of through-body stringing
This is the first Fender PJ I've played where the neck pickup sounds like a real precision. The bridge pickup can add bite or with the mid control up and treble down gets into Jaco territory. Both pickups with treble is a great modern pick or slap tone. A real all-rounder. Very light and easy to play too.
It does have two scratches on the bottom of the body - where I was a bit careless putting it in a soft case with zips. Hard to see in normal light - see photos.
Currently wearing a set of nearly-new DR Hi-beams. Comes with an unused SKB TSA-approved flight case, tools, strap locks etc.
I'm only selling because sadly, with no gigs in the diary, something has to go.
No trades, sorry. Happy for anyone to try/collect from South London/Surrey (KT4). I can arrange delivery at the buyer's expense.
