Selling my American Deluxe Jazz as it isn't getting as much love as it deserves.
5 string, noise cancelling N3 pickups, 3 band active EQ with active/passive switch and passive tone control. Comes with Deluxe hard case. Some marks but all cosmetic, neck in excellent condition.
Collection from Bracknell / Reading area.
See what there is trades wise.
it is a Ken Lawrence Brase I bass, 6 strings, in perfect condition delivered with its case.
Of all the basses I have tried, this is the one that by far gave me the most beautiful harmonics, and incredible timbre.
You can see on YouTube a famous American bassist playing with this instrument, and it is simply magnificent. This is the main reason why I bought it at the time.
The luthiers who work at Fodera believe that Ken Lawrence is one of the best in their profession, that says it all.
I sell it to buy a fretless one

I’ve just got m’self a new cab so this one is for sale. The price includes UK courier as with lockdown in place I can’t organise collection. It’s only ever been used at home - bedroom levels - never gigged but one corner protector has a dent. Apart from that it’s pristine. It’s a really great thing, light and compact and sounds really good.

Sold to DEEPBASS, very nice chap, will love it I'm certain! Tune Technology: these were originally built in a well-known factory in Japan and quite sought after. The company split and one group started manufacturing these elsewhere Korea or Indonesia not sure? These were not as highly revered due to the lower rent hardware used in this change-over period. This has a Japanese body and neck rescued from the factory with superior fittings most added by the original owner: Mk2 Bart pickups, Glock 3 band Pre, Gotoh tuners, Schaller bridge, brass nut! 19 mm spacing, extremely slim neck, 24 frets, Flamed Maple top. Couple of small marks in the back of the body, but in excellent nick, neck is ultra-slim! Unfortunately I've not found the time to progress with 6 strings , as nine years after changing exclusively to 5'vers I'm still learning! Cash is King, but I could find room for a another Lakland or Jazzy , maybe PBass 5'ver? will trade up or down, Collection or nearby meet only.
Here we have an American Performer Jazz in Satin Sea Foam Green. I've had this up before but took it down as the neck seems very resonant to my lugs. Fender 74 pickups a KickAss bridge and a KiOgon loom finishes it off. This model doesn't come with a case but ive got a Fender case for it...i can stick it in for an extra £80 or comes with gig bag.Not looking for trades unless you have a mint AM Geddy Jazz & cash your way. Anyway UK only please and willing to meet up half way anywhere in UK or can box up if you arrange courier...cheers
