SOLD: Maruszczyk Jake 5a, as new!
£950
BOURNEMOUTH

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Brand new Maruszczyk Jake 5a in natural black satin stain. Beautiful bass, whoever buys will not be disappointed! Really mint condition.

I've only had this a week, bought brand new from Bass Direct (here's the link: https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MARUSZCZYK_Jake_5a_Satin_black.html - this is the actual instrument!), but circumstances sadly dictate that I'm going to have to part with it. I bought it for £1,250 so I think £950 is a good deal.

Comes with Maruszczyk padded gig bag, new Comfort strap (£34) & I've added Schaller S-locks for safety (£20).

So it says it all on the Bass Direct website, but controls are volume, pickup pan, bass +/-, treble +/-, with a pull-up on the volume knob for passive. Really not much more to say, other than it plays beautifully!

Prefer collection from Bournemouth, although I'm prepared to drive up to £100 miles to deliver. Really prefer not to post, but I may be able to.

Any questions, let me know!

Prefer leather for looks & style, but these are really comfortable & hold the bass extremely well!

Update - I'm always interested in:

US Fender Jazzes or Precisions

Limelight Jazzes or Precisions

Happy to consider trades for these.

Did you buy it in person with cash? If not, you can just return it. Seems a better deal from your point of view.

Nice looking bass though

      Up for sale is my Maruszczyk Jake L in Fiesta Red (very Pino). I bought this new in mid April of last year. It has been gigged a few times and, apart from the usual swirls, is in great condition. Sounds just like you'd expect a P Bass to sound. 
      Jake L (Precision type) chambered alder body.
      34" Scale maple neck, katalox fretboard with MOP dots.
      19mm bridge spacing, 40mm nut width.
      Standard Maruszczyk split coil pickup, passive circuit.
      Tort, 3 ply pickguard.
      Weighs 7lbs 3ozs (3.3kg ish).
      Hardware is standard Maruszczyk fitment.
      Maruszczyk gig bag.
      Currently fitted with Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats.

      Bought not long ago off a good chap on here. Now only selling as I've found a Shuker I've been after for over a year and something needs to fund it. £730 shipped. 
      Ash body in red satin with matching headstock 
      Under 10lbs
      34" scale 
      19mm spacing 
      21 fret rosewood board 
      Häussel pups
      Delano 2-band active pre 
      Push/pull active passive 
      Great neck and super playability and sound. Häussel pickups sound rich with something of a vintage tone. This covers a lot of ground. Nicely thick padded gigbag included. Well packed for shipping. 
      No trades I'm afraid, as I need some cash towards the Shuker.

      Now On Hold
      Great condition Maruszczyk Elwood 5a
      Ash body in Red Satin finish with matching headstock
      34" scale
      19mm string spacing
      4.45kg weight
      Angled headstock
      21 Frets plus zero fret
      Rosewood fingerboard with blocks & binding,
      Häussel JJ pickups
      Delano 2-band active preamp
      Volume and blend
      Passive mode on push-pull pot
      Wearing nearly new D'Addario XT strings
      Schaller strap lock buttons fitted, originals included
      Really nice looking, sounding and playing bass, and a reluctant sale, but I've had some wrist problems that make 5 strings a bit harder to play. I've already got it's replacement - an Elwood (Hellwood in fact) 4 string with the same pickups, I really like the sound of them.
      Condition is really good, I've checked it over for anything at all and all I could find was a small mark on the back where the finish has gone shiny and tiny ding in the headstock so small it was hard to photograph. There are some scratches on the scratchplate (makes sense ) and a few on the control plate but you have to get it in the right light to see them. I've done some photos of those, and other than that it's perfect.
      I can throw in a Maruszczyk gig bag, I do have a hard case but I'd need to replace it so that would be £30 extra. It's a good case, hardly used and deep enough for the angled headstock.
      I'd prefer collection or a meet up half way thing, but I can arrange a courier and pack it up properly (it would be packed better than the couriers advise) and send it insured for whatever that costs if really needed, that will probably be about £30 on top.
      Now £750, I might be up for trades but there aren't lots of things I'm after. One is a Sandberg Forty Eight in black with creme strips and matching headstock. If also consider a Fender P or Jazz, that is right in the middle of their respective sounds, as I've never owned either only other people's version of.

      Absolutely stunning Maruszczyk "Hellwood" 4p - a stealth bass like no other. Their take on a passive jazz, it's a beautiful bass, sounds superb & a real head-turner. Haussel pickups.
      Comes with hard case (pictured), Maruszczyk strap (colour-coded with the paduk fretboard & pickup covers), Schaller S-locks in black, certificate, etc.
      The pots have been upgraded but I've no idea what to; the originals are included. There are three caps as well, interchangeable for different amounts of aggression!
      Here's a link to what I think was Bass Direct's original sale page: https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/MARUSZCZYK_Hellwood_4P.html
      But here's the specs:
      Specifications;
      Body: ash
      Neck: hard rock maple
      Fingerboard: paduk, 21 frets
      Nut width: 40mm
      Construction: bolt on
      Pickups: Haeussel single coils in paduk covers
      Electronics: passive - volume, volume, tone
      Finish: black, body/neck matte
      Hardware: black, 19mm string spacing
      Weight: 3,70kg
      Pickup from Bournemouth preferred; I will drive to deliver, up to 100 miles or so, for fuel, or post if necessary (around £30).
      Any questions, please just ask.
