In very good condition, plays well. I find the pickups a little hot, in a good way.
I prefer P/PJ basses so this doesn't get that much play, mostly sitting pretty on the wall hanger.
Comes with a Fender Deluxe gig bag which the shop very kindly gave me, even though it should have been for a Mexican Fender (Wunjo, Denmark Street I believe).
The bag is generally in a good condition.
Will courier at buyer's expense.

Here is my lovely Fender Japan FSR 62 Walnut Jazz bass. £850
This is a stunning bass to play. Very punchy sound, with more kick than my USA jazz.
The neck is a slim “C” shape with a rosewood fingerboard and exceptionally smooth and easy to play.
Weight is 8.9lbs
My drummer will be upset this is up for sale as the walnut finish matches his favourite snare drum!
The walnut finish is lovely and very tricky to photograph. The machine heads and bridge are a smokey black which matches the walnut finish superbly.
There is a small ding on the back of the headstock which is difficult to show.
it's difficult let go of this one go.
Can meet up half way, within reason - not sure if we're allowed yet. Otherwise I will post it in the UK for £60 insured.
Bought from Basschatter Marc S in Nov 2017. PJ mods, Entwhistle p/ups done under his ownership ( Dave Dearnley iirc). The work has been done to a very high standard. I’ve barely played it and gigged it twice.Playing my Jazz bass almost exclusively now but even so I think I may regret letting this one go. Excellent condition just a couple of minor scratches on rear of body. Usual Classic Vibe build quality,one of the darkest rosewood boards i’ve ever seen. Weight- just a smidge over 9lb/4kg. I’ll include the gig bag it came with. Collection preferred (i’m not far from M5 junction 26)but could do a meet up.
Up for sale is my superb gigging PJ bass. I painstakingly built this up over a few years, trying out different combinations of bodies and pickups, centred around that superb Warmoth neck.
Times they are a changin' and I’d like something shorter to practice with in my very small home office.
This was superbly set up by Chris Ward of Bass Centre fame. I even had him dress the fret ends. It plays like an absolute dream and currently has an old set of GHS Pressurewounds that kinda sound like flats now.
Will be sad to see it go.

Kiogon wiring loom, with selector, vol, vol, tone.
Weight of this bass is a very reasonable 3.75Kg. There are a few minor scratches and a couple of dings here and there but nothing that jumps out. Hit me up if you want close up pics of anything.
Trade wise, I'm looking for a medium or short scale that's very light weight. 3.5Kg absolute maximum and preferably lighter.
Price is a firm £525 £450 plus delivery. EDIT: That is the one and only price drop before being parted out.
I estimate that insured, that will come out £40-50. If you're local, you are welcome to look and try in a safe, socially distanced way, which probably means outside or in the garage.
If this doesn't sell, I'd look to part it out but let's face it, no one wants that hassle and I've got at least 1 box I can use. It would be such a shame to break this up, as it feels like these were meant to be together.
Optionally, I can include the superb Mono M80 Case. We'd have to work out a price for that.
