****************PRICE UPDATE******************** NOW £1,000 SHIPPED (UK)***********************European Shipping at cost
So this was my first foray into the world of P Bass and I absolutely love it - however, as a solely (up until then!) 5 string player, I have now seen a 5 string PJ I want, so this has to go.
Serial number suggests a 2009 build, and is in excellent condition, recently re-strung with Rotosound flats. No marks, chips, scratches, in the gloss black body, just the usual little swirls etc on the pick guard. Small scuff to rear of headstock, which you can just see in the picture. Has active/passive switching and you can pan between the P or J pickups or of course a blend of the two. Sounds just like a "traditional" P bass in passive mode panned to the P pickup, but bring the Jazz pickup in adds that extra tonal qualities.
- 3 band EQ and tone control when in passive mode.
- 41mm at the nut.
- 18/19mm string spacing at bridge (neck through body stringing or top-load, whichever you prefer).
- weight around 4.1kg. Balances nicely on the strap.
- Has all the original case candy, receipts, documents etc. Case is built like a tank.
PM me if interested - I can ship.
The 5 string version of this bass doesn't come up very often (certainly here in the UK) - In fact, they seem to be unavailable in Europe currently too. Not sure if they've been discontinued?
Not sure if the correct term is X-short scale, but I think it's 26.5" scale. I bought this as a travel bass, and took a punt, hoping the B string wouldn't sound "flabby"
I was very pleasantly surprised at just how deep and resonant the B string is - I really didn't expect it to sound so good
From memory, I paid around £230 or £240 for this bass new, that was pre import charges and sans case / bag. I'm throwing in a really nicely padded gigbag (which I think I paid around £40 for)
In great condition - can't see any dings or scratches and there is no fret wear. In all honesty, it could probably do with a teak in the set-up, but it plays nicely so I leave that to the buyers taste.....
Pictured here alongside a Hofner Violin bass for size comparison.
I would seriously keep this, as it sounds so thunderous for such a tiny bass - but the string spacing is a tad too tight at the bridge end for my tastes (or possibly clumsy fingers! lol).....
No trades - I'm thinning the herd (unless you've got a Wingbass, Fingy or similar)
Collection / meet-up preferred.... and I've got a decent battery amp when travel is permitted.
I have the box this cam in originally - but of course that won't fit the nice, thickly padded gigbag
This is my 2019 Ibanez SR300EB.
Its the weathered black finish. Really nice condition, just a mark on the back from a belt buckle. Just fitted new Roto strings 45-105 roundwound. Plays really nice, lovely narrow neck. Sounds good, everything works as it should. All completely standard.
Reasonable offers considered
Would also take a swap for a Squier Precision or similar.
