I bought this new 7 years ago and it was my main gigging bass until I moved to a Jazz. It’s been my backup since then so I’ve decided to sell with a heavy heart.
It’s set up with flats and plays beautifully, the neck really is lovely. Comes with the moulded SKB case but I don’t have the case candy I’m afraid.
I put straplocks on but don’t have the originals, so I’ll throw in the Comfort strap.
It’s in perfect condition apart from a bit of scuffing on the B string tuning peg from where it wore through my gig bag. I've tried to show this in the photos.
If you want to come and try it you’d be very welcome – I can set up my rig in the garage so we can keep our distance. I can courier or I would deliver up to around 50 miles, just to get out of the house!
£925 delivered or £900 collected.
No trades thanks. I’ve bought loads of stuff from here over the years but haven’t ever bothered with getting feedback. I could ask some sellers for feedback if anyone wants reassurance.
Edit: this weighs 9.4lb or 4.3kg. And string spacing at the bridge is 18-19mm.
Beautiful Anaconda custom Ultra J5 A3.

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, and just how much sustain it has for such a short scale - 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
Very nice 5 string Hohner B Bass from the late 80s/early90s with a through neck and active/passive electrics.
Bass is in good condition for it's age and has had a new set of Rotosound 45-130 strings, along with a set up and electrics checked and a coat of lemon oil on the fretboard. It plays very nicely and sounds great.
It does have a few scuffs which I have tried to show mostly near the jack socket but they are only cosmetic and the neck is in excellent condition.
Only selling as I bought it on a whim thinking I needed a 5 string and it's just reminded me I don't get on with 5 strings.
Collection from Downend in Bristol preferred and can try and sort a socially distanced trial. I can look to courier at buyers cost and risk. I will include a hard case in the cost to make this safer.
I'd prefer a sale but will consider trades especially for a Barefaced compact cab or possibly other barefaced cabs or interesting 4 string basses of similar value (no black basses though as I have enough already ta).
Trades in order of interestingness;
Cold hard cash
Retrovibe Renegade or Vantage
Epiphone Thunderbird Pro (passive ones)
Nice Jazz with block and bound neck
