                                          Moon J J 4 String Bass - Early 80s -MIJ Jazz Bass- Open to Trades

                                           Youtube video of a similar spec (note - not the actual bass):

 

£850 shipped Mainland UK.
 
Moon J J 4 String Bass - Early 80s.
 
Made In Japan.
 
Some photos show when it was for sale at the Bass Gallery - and also my own my recent photos.
Set up very well indeed, very tactile and easy to play.
Its still wearing the flats from the set up at the  Bass Gallery and is set up wonderfully - the playing action is just effortless.

I believe the pickups date it to the early 1980s.
 

Good overall condition given the age.  A small scratch on the upper horn and a small scuff near the jack socket, please see photos.

Therefore good condition for a bass that is c40 years old.

Controls are Volume / Volume / Tone and a pickup selector switch.  Also a push pull on the tone pot, for a mid boost voicing - see video above.

Nice and punchy for a passive bass

Weight is 5.3KG

Specs:

Fingerboard Material Ebony
 Body Material Ash 
 Finish White
 Number of Frets 22
 Scale Length 34"
 Pickups 2 JB
 Pre-Amp Passive

How unusual having V/V/T then also a pickup selector? Have always loved moon basses, such workhorses and beautifully made. Best of luck with the sale.

I’ve been watching Pino playing one of these the last few days. Seemed to be his jazz of choice for some time a while back.
