Selling my Atelier Z Jerry Barnes M265. Top of the line, hand made in Japan, 70s style bass from Atelier. Bought new a few weeks ago and in literally "as new" condition. Fantastic instrument and craftsmanship, but selling as I'm much more of a 60s pickup position / alder body guy. Easily nails the 70s super jazz, Marcus Miller type of tone. It has an upgraded electronics package (including a passive tone knob), adding additional versatility. 70s type of sound but without the huge weight! (pretty light for an ash 5 string). Currently setup with quite low action with no buzz at all.

Up for sale is my beautiful Moollon Jazz bass. It is in mint condition (I've photographed as best as possible the small nicks in the headstock; as it's a nitro finish like pre-CBS Fenders). Plenty of reviews in BassChat.
Many Moollon reviews & videos online, but it's usually described as the best pre-CBS type jazz bass you can get in 5 strings. Jimmy Coppolo does great copies too but his equivalent model with nitro finish (Classic Supreme) will cost at least double. Very difficult to find and YJ currently has a backlog of 12-14 months as he builds everything by himself.
No trades unless you have a similar specced Stenback.
handmade body & neck, finished in multiple layers of super-thin nitrocellulose lacquer
hand-wound VJ-60 pickups which capture the tone of an early 60's jazz bass
handmade hardware to pre-CBS specs (higher nickel content).

For sale is my 1982 Fender (Squier Series) Precision.
I'm sure most people on here will know exactly what these are, but to summarise. In April 1982 Fender Japan started manufacturing and selling replicas of the classic Fender guitars and basses from the 1960s and 1950s - the Japanese Vintage (JV) models. For the first few months the export models were branded 'Fender' and 'Squier Series' but they were quickly re-branded 'Squier' once Fender realised that they were undercutting their own USA built instruments with equal or arguably better quality models from Japan!
This model is a replica of the legendary 1962 Precision as played by James Jamerson - period correct down to the reverse tuners, grooved bridge saddles and cloth covered wiring
All original to the best of my knowledge, and in great condition for the age - has a few marks & dings as to be expected (see photos). Neck date 26 June 1982, neck pocket label dated 7/82.
Set up with a fairly low action and flatwound strings (Labella 45 to 105 I think).
This is a great example - plays superbly and sounds just like a P-bass should - the only reason I'm selling is I don't really get on with the extra neck width of the P-bass so it hardly ever gets played.
Inspection and collection from West Sussex preferred - but will ship if required. Comes with basic but virtually new Gear4Music hard case.
Sale only - no trades I'm afraid ... money needed for a new motorbike! 😁
Any questions - just ask.
