For Sale is a 70'S Camel Journey P bass.
I got this in a part trade but trying to keep the numbers down. I think this bass has been through a couple of hands on here and features in this thread:
It's a fine playing P with a very pretty body, from the grain I'm guessing is Ash.
Dimarzio Model P pups with series/parallel switch.
Good weight at 8.9lbs or 4.04Kg
42mm at nut
Currently wearing La Bella RX Steels 45-105
Plenty of dings, buckle rash and bruises on the body but certainly more mojo than any major issues. Two ding's on the back of the neck one clearly visible, second far less so. On the thumb side so doesn't bother me (and I thought I was fussy about necks). Small lacquer cracks on the neck pocket. Bridge cover fitted at some point but not present so screws in holes. Tried to show all in pics.
It doesn't come with a case so collection/meet would be sensible. (I do have an old beast of a case but can imagine this would make shipping expensive, could also double box if risk is accepted or happy to send in a hard case you provide).
LAST PRICE DROP £1250

Selling my Atelier Z Jerry Barnes M265. Top of the line, hand made in Japan, 70s style bass from Atelier. Bought new a few weeks ago and in literally "as new" condition. Fantastic instrument and craftsmanship, but selling as I'm much more of a 60s pickup position / alder body guy. Easily nails the 70s super jazz, Marcus Miller type of tone. It has an upgraded electronics package (including a passive tone knob), adding additional versatility. 70s type of sound but without the huge weight! (pretty light for an ash 5 string). Currently setup with quite low action with no buzz at all.

Plenty of feedback:
Picked this up a couple of months back to have another try with five strings. Not sure what I was thinking because I struggle with four so in light of some recent purchases I think I will move this on.
The Good Points
It's a good, solid 5 string bass which punches above it's weight. Body is Bubinga wood, fingerboard is Rosewood. The neck is super flat and really nice to play. Hardware and pickups are by Wilkinson. The four pots are Volume, Tone, Bass, and Pickup Blend.
The Bad Points
It has a few marks and dings (the previous owner toured Europe with it) but nothing major, just general, light, wear and tear.
When I picked it up, it had a really low output, and the pickup blend pot was crackly when adjusted. On inspection, the battery had leaked and corroded the battery clip, so I replaced that and stuck in a new 9v which sorted the output issue. I haven't gotten around to fixing the pot yet. It may just need a squirt of cleaner, or it may need a replacement soldering in, both of which should be pretty simple and are reflected in the price.
Price is £125. This does not include shipping but does include a crap Fender gig bag to carry it home in. Shipping could possibly be arranged. I have a box, and can upgrade to a better more padded gigbag, but this will push the price to £160.
I would also consider a trade for a high end (Mono, Sadowsky) gig bag with money either way.
Socially distanced collection or viewing is welcome, as is PayPal if fees are covered.

Fender Coronado Bass ll
Very nice example of a Wildwood ll Coronado Bass, made in early 1968 (neck dated Jan 18th). It's a true beauty with a rare highly flamed maple neck and lollipop tuners. The bass appears to be all original and is in very good shape for its age. It has finish checking around and some small damages, but nothing significant.
The Coronado has been setup with tapewounds which suit the bass very well. It can do some vintage sounds as well as some more punchy modern tones. It sounds great when played with either fingers or pick.
A sturdy epiphone hardcase is included in the sale.
As for trades/partial trades I am mainly interested in a good precision (everything between a vintage Fender or better Japanese copy, good Squier...), old Music Man Sabre (walnut preffered), ampeg v4(b) amp, nice Fender strat or (vintage) offset guitar....
I am located in the Netherlands, but am happy to ship at buyers risk..
