NOW SOLD - Custom Jazz Bass Aztec Gold  £549
£599
Poole

Recommended Posts

Bought from a BC'er about 3 years ago but not used much so I am moving it on. 

A beautiful funk machine refinished in Aztec Gold. I haven't got the original listing details but I remember it is a 90's Japan body refinished by Dave Wilson.

I have replaced the PU's with Ironstone but will include the PU's that came with it (which sounded pretty good) although I don't know the brand:  

The Ironstone Jazz Bass pickups are Ironstone’s first Bass pickup design. They feature classic 7.3K bridge and 7.1K Ohm neck resistances for rich, but crisp vintage tones. The classic construction also includes:
  • Alnico V vintage tone magnets
  • Fibre flat work bobbins
  • Waxed cloth connecting cable

The Jazz Bass pickups are available as individual bridge, or neck, as well as a set. The set only, is also available in a rugged foam-lined presentation case (see photos). A comprehensive mounting kit accompanies all purchases.

I also had the bridge reset slightly and cleaned up the neck which is silky smooth.

The neck itself is an Allparts licensed model with Rosewood board and Walnut facing on the headstock. (Apparently cost about £400 itself)

I am including a Spider hard case in the sale which has served me well and still does the job.

Strung with Bass Center Stadium Elites 40-100.

Something a little different and sounds as good as it looks. 

 

Bad bits:

Some belt rash on the back, a paint chip to the body near the truss rod adjuster and another chip by the jack input. 

Some slight smudges to the varnish on the headstock and some wear marks on back of headstock.

All these can be seen in the pictures and the Bass is priced accordingly, just trying to be honest. 

Pickup and try out welcome in Poole once lockdown is over. 

Can courier at cost in a box or meet up somewhere. 

Thanks

      This is a true beauty I’ve decided should be with someone else who will treasure it and play it more then I and I.
      I had one of these the first time around - then Ricks, Celinder and CS basses but always hankered back to a real 60s Jazz - then this very special laid-back looking instrument came up.
      Alder body with ebony fretboard and beautiful maple binding by master luthier Jimmy Moon. 'Very comfortable A' profile slim neck - slimmer than '64 CSs I've owned.
      The neck is in lovely condition, has a subtle flaming and like the rest of the bass has acquired the sweetest sound, character and the authentic patina and feel only 50 years can give.
      Sounds just as you would expect - an authoritative true vintage tone with a wide palette and a comfortable 9lb.
      Originally sunburst - pictured, the previous owner who bought the bass new. It has all original pick ups and electronics.  
      He took it for a set up to a music dealer where some oik damaged the truss rod which is when Mr Moon was commissioned to make the bass unique.
      The ebony fingerboard is gorgeous and as you can see is set off by the understated mother of pearl dots.
      That’s it.
      Stay safe, stay healthy and stay in tune.
      Based near Manchester, could meet within reason, comes with substantial Fender case.
      PS - I am a professional photographer - the buyer will receive a Marcus Miller poster with my compliments. https://www.william-ellis.com/

      Hi there,
      I put on sale this active Fender Deluxe Jazz Bass 2009 from the American Deluxe series (2004-2009). The price is 1.250£.
      It is located in A Coruña (Spain)
      The Fender specifications are as follows: 
      Metallic silver headstock logo 
      Modern C-shaped, graphite reinforced neck.
      Contoured heel for more fret access 5 bolt neckplate with Corona California Fender logo stamped.
      Abalone dot fret markers. 
      Rosewood rolled edge fretboard. 
      Montego Black paint. 
      Gold pickguard 
      Through body or topload bridge. 
      Hipshot USA made Deluxe Lite-Bass tuning machines. 
      3 Band Active EQ with 18 volt power supply.
      Samarium ™ Cobalt Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups.
      Schaller Style Strap Lock Buttons.
      Alder body and maple neck, with a 9.5 "radius rosewood fingerboard. The bass is light and really well balanced (3.8kg or less, approx.) 
      Abalone inlays are just amazing. 
      The pickups are Fender SCN (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless), with a classic sound without any noise. 3-band EQ and very quiet, with a punchy output. 
      This pre-2010 Deluxe series has nothing to do with the later one. Only good things are said about its pickups, how balanced and comfortable it is. Depending on the EQ you use, you can have from the most classic and vintage sound to that powerful Marcus Miller sound, while maintaining that quality and sound so familiar from Fender. 
      The frets have just been luthier to be leveled although the bass has little use, as I have other Passives and I hardly play it. It has not passed through other hands. In fact, he hasn't been out of the house more than a couple of times. It is the real reason why I decided to put it up for sale, even if it costs me to part with it. For that reason it's only for sale, but I'm looking for an Aguilar Tone Hammer 350 or 500. So maybe a trade for Aguilar + money would be possible. 
      Apart from that I have enough equipment.
      As you can see in the images it is very well cared for and treated. The neck behaves perfectly and has a very comfortable action. It's a super versatile bass. Includes its Fender case. The only visible imperfect is a scratch on the pickguard (where you have access to the truss screw) that a luthier made when adjusting the neck and he seemed to find it too much work to unscrew the pickguard. The rest, natural marks of use. 
      We will discuss and figure out the best way for shipping. No problem, indeed!!
      Any questions or doubts do not hesitate to ask me. 
      Thanks for your time and interest.
      Héctor
