Sold Fender Japan 70's Reissue Precision Non Export
£700
Darlington

Recommended Posts

I'm giving up on gigging, it's been almost 8 months, I've lost the need, so selling a good bit over the next couple of weeks.

 

I withdrew this a few weeks back as there was an electrical problem. It now has a custom Ki0Gon loom with 2 x CTS 250k pots, Sprague NOS 0.1 cap (for vintage tone) & Switchcraft jack. Original, non working loom included.

Frets have just been polished. The White (yuk) scratchplate has some vinyl over the top in black marble. Not the greatest job, but ok from more than a couple of feet away. It will peel off leaving no residue if buyer chooses to do so.

2004, alder body, maple neck, rosewood board. Nut 40mm (same as a Nate). 9lb 3oz, nice low to medium action. Comes with basic Ritter gigbag.

Small chip on bass side of neck, 7th fret,  which I can't feel when playing. Otherwise very good condition.

These are uncommon basses in UK/Europe.

COURIER.

£47 next day insured delivery mainland UK except Highlands & Islands, feel free to organise & pay for your own. 

Feedback below photos.

Keep safe & thanks for looking,

Karl.

Sorry to hear you're giving up on gigging @karlfer - I know its $hitt ATM - but I'm sure things will improve some time in the future, and we'll all be playing live again.

Also, good to hear you fixed the electrical problem with a Kiogon loom - I'm sure this bass will work fine now.

Lastly, this bass looks amazing! MIJ / CIJ Fender basses are superb IMO, and if I didn't have (more than) a full compliment already, I'd be sorely tempted. GLWTS and more importantly - keep the faith good sir :) :)

Paraphrasing some messages from the good folks on Faecesbook, "bad time to sell mate, you're gonna have to come down a lot for me to buy it!".

A. No.

B. Find another one.

Tom, folk from Teesside are blocked cos they're a bit peculiar 😆

It is Daphne Blue, but it's a tricky colour to photograph. In the original post it looks quite dark.

This Fender Japan model of bass is very uncommon in UK/EU, even more so in Daphne Blue, usually white ones, occasional Sunburst or black. TV logo, 40mm nut, KiOGon loom, what's not to like 🙂

It's stopped working again! so it's not the Ki0Gon loom, the pick up is buggered.

So I'm going to reduce it for a few days, then remove it, get a replacement pick up & keep the damn thing.

£600, absolutely NO offers thank you.

Organise & pay for your own courier please, no gigbag or case, it will be bubble wrapped & in a cardboard box. I pack well for shipping, see my feedback.

I'm off to cry now thank you.

Karl, if you're able to speak to the Mrs and convince her she doesn't need a new bathroom fitting next week, I'll have this off you in a shot.
