Literally had this 3 weeks.

Opportunities like this don’t come up often when I have money so I jumped in.

I have also recently bought a Sadowsky HPJ which I’m in love with - Hence the P fettish.

It’s lovely - lots of honest wear, it sounds great with flats on.

I’ve gone through a hilarious journey of buying pickguards and things.

To be clear - this will sell with the original Black 70’s pickguard.

Case is Original (Pretty road worm), everything original on the bass - apart from a refret done in last few years. I did ask the seller who did it but he didn’t know - it’s a very good job.

Sounds mega - can be heard here;

The logic is that after a side by side comparison, I can achieve a similar if not near identical sound with the Sadowsky. I’ve also just taken a gig with a singer songwriter where I’ll be using more fretless - so a fretless equivalent Precision or more modern fretless japan precision or USA standard fretless precision would work with cash my way.

It had a prang in the neck which I’ve done a little infill on - it’s not invisible but feels 10 times better than it did.

A gorgeous bass.

Serial Number denotes a 1975 bass. The pot dates show 1976. I can only presume the bass was made in 1975 and the electronics made it into the bass in 1976. God only knows.

Anyhow - some pictures are from the basschatter I bought it from @bouvier. Some are mine.

I’d much prefer this be collected - with social distancing observed - in Manchester (M27 postcode).

I can ship - I think Eurosender did Teeside to Manchester for £30 insures to £2000.

I’ll be keeping the tort...hopefully to put on a fretless p.

Would not Rule out a 2nd Generation (Mexican) Marcus Miller jazz Bass as a partial trade - or a Japanese one under 9.5lbs.

What is the nut width and general weight of the bass please? Thanks

From original sales thread -

  • 43mm at the Nut
  • Bass weighs a trim 9lbs on the trusty bathroom scales

From This Morning...

Could you send it to Spain?

It could happen - I’ve just replied to a PM asking for a sale/shipping in UK. 

A recent sale to Europe cost about £70 insured just as reference. That’s using Eurosender/DPD.
