TRADED

Continuing my 'last in first out' policy. . .

Another bass I traded for earlier this year. It's a lot of fun to play and looks really cool - I've taken loads of different basses to band rehearsals over the years and my guys are used to me turning up with something different each week. However, it's rare that anything gets more than a cursory glance from the two guitarists. The week I took this one they both came over to have a look and asked for a quick play (with a pick of course, lol). There's just something about the tru oil finish & gorgeous neck that looks a bit special & different to all the high gloss finishes you tend to see.

I already have a couple of 'go to' J basses that I'm used to using so hanging on to this one is a luxury I can't afford at the moment.

Original description & pics from previous owner:

Custom Jazz Bass comprising a Pau Ferro / Ebony (f/board) handmade by Alpher Instruments.This neck was handmade to fit the Warmoth (USA) Alder Jazz bass body This has an added flame maple laminate top and finished in tru oil.

"In excellent condition (just a couple of minor marks/dings which may show in photos). 

Fitted with Fender Custom Shop 60’s Pick ups and brand new John East Deluxe Pre which works both passive and active. 

The chrome hardware is high-quality Hipshot (USA) plus J. East original knobs (3 std. Plus one stacked). 

This bass has been totally overhauled and upgraded and is a killer Jazz!

Comes in a generic hard case"

Happy to ship anywhere in UK or EU at cost. Payment via bank transfer or Paypal friends & family only.

May accept trades on this one with, ideally, some money coming my way as part of the deal.

Would need to be 4 strings and not too heavy - maybe something like a Japanese Fender in an interesting colour 😁

Had a couple of trade offers but nothing that really suited so it's still here. . .

Well I beat you all! 😂😂 It was originally mine as I put it all together and did the finish work on it. 👍 slightly different spec now though, interesting to see how it’s evolved.

Although I think the finish has been altered since I did it. This is from when I owned it. 

GLWTS! 👍

Open to trades for something simple like a Fender USA Jazz or Precision. 

Could even trade up with cash from me for something particularly nice.
