I am putting up for sale/trade my Fender USA Elite Jazz bass in beautiful natural finish.
I got it through Bassdirect in 2019 and I have gigged it only a number of times since then (there are the usual marks from playing but overall the bass is in immaculate condition - very well looked after and stored in it's case when it wasn't played) They still retail for £1600-£1800 new online - this could be yours for a lot less!
The elite series jazz bass has more or less the same features/specs as the more recent American Ultra Jazz Bass I think - IMO they are very identical, very comfy neck profile and super versatile tone palette thanks to the onboard pre-amp.
The bass is located in North London and comes in a very sturdy Fender flight case with all the bits included. Collection preferred (at social distance) or I can arrange a courier at buyers expense.
Cash is king but as far as trades go, only bass I am interested in would be a Fender American Original 60s P Bass with Rosewood Board In Olympic White.
Any questions, PM me!

Everything works fine, technically and aesthetically top ! The Aguilars provide a more aggressive timbre compared to the Duncans. I personally like that Aguilar sound - consider Janek Gwizdalas Fodera which is also a 33" with Aguilars.
The Aguilars are not splittable so the Single/Parallel Switch is now a kill switch. The other switches are active/passive and a frequency selector for the EQ.
Asking 7900 EUR (approx. 7100 GBP today) plus shipping from Duesseldorf/Germany.
