:: Don Grosh PJ4 :: very rare :: Fralin Hipshot Aguilar :: similar to Sadowsky, Lakland, Nash ::
£1650
Wetter / Dortmund (Germany)

Recommended Posts

Actually I always assumed that this time would never come. However, the financing of my new K-Bass PV4 from Knut Reiter is leaving its mark, so that I have to part with an exceptionally resonant, flexible and extremely rare Don Grosh PJ4. The Don Grosh instruments are known and "legendary" in guitarist circles. However, Don only builds a small series of basses every few years, which don't have to shy away from comparison with the custom models from Sadowsky, Lakland, Nash etc. But on the contrary!

Here in a nutshell the information about the Don Grosh PJ4.

:: Body: swamp ash 
:: Neck: maple, longscale, 21 frets
:: Fingerboard: Indian Rosewood
:: Bridge: Hipshot B-Style Aluminum Bridge
:: Machine heads: Hipshot Ultralite (USA) plus Hipshot D tuner
:: Electronics: Aguilar OBP2, 18V
:: Pickups: Lindy Fralin PJ (one of the best PJ sets on the market)
:: Color: Nitro lacquer in Charcoal Frost with matching headstock
:: Serial number: # 2689

I "retrofitted" the White Shell Pickguard (bought at Don Grosh!), The potentiometer knobs and a Hipshot D tuner myself. The original pickguard is Toirtoise and belongs just like all other original parts for sale.

The bass comes with a sturdy case (original), which is of course part of the offer.

Shipping is free in Germany. For other countries, please inquire about shipping costs.

Is the J the newer humcancelling version or a single coil?

I used the DG PJ4 on a lot of gigs with a well booked cover band and a couple of recordings. I never experienced any hum-problems. So I am not really sure about the bridge single-coil pickup, but I assume that it is the „not hum-cancelling version“ from Fralin. If you want I can check it with Don.

Wow yeh that is rare. Grosh makes some of the best feeling necks in the business, period. My friend in the west end had a 5er and it was a really amazing feeling bass. 
 

Good luck with the sale
