Great workhorse basses, these. Details below:










Weight: 9.7 lbs / 4.4 kg on the bathroom scales

Scale: 34” 

Bridge: 19mm 

21 frets 

Nut: 1 11/16” 

Radius: 10”

Body: Alder 

Neck: Maple 

Fingerboard: Rosewood

Bolt-on neck 

Hardware: Gold

Pickups: 2 alnico single coil (stacked hum cancelling)

Electronics: volume, blend, 3 band EQ (+/- treble / bass and two mids presets - the mid control is a 3-way rotary selector switch to select between flat and the two presets) 

Mother of Pearl and Abalone inlays, gloss finish

It's a really nice active super-jazz. Without the offset body. An example of this model demo'd very expertly here: 

...by the redoubtable Jeff Andrews (RIP); and this actual bass demo'd significantly less effectively here, by me: 


Happy to answer any questions here on the thread or by PM.

Shipping: obvs better for you to come and try out here in Elephant & Castle (I'll provide some socially-distanced biscuits and a cuppa), but if that's not possible, I can ship to you via your choice of courier at your additional expense, or, if it's reasonable, deliver to you in my car for a contribution to the fuel money, whichever is cheaper for you.

Trades: thank you, no. 

Many thanks for checking out the ad!

Aaaaaand sold. Sorry about the suspense for some of you(!) - payment took rather a long time to reach me, despite being organised very promptly by the buyer. International bank transfer via IBAN/BIC number...anyone else had a crazy long wait for payment to arrive? The buyer was advised it would be processed in 24 hrs!
