      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.

      Bought from Bass Direct last year.
      Here is a link with all the info: https://www.bassdirect.co.uk/bass_guitar_specialists/TRB1005J.html
      My thoughts (if useful) are that it has a great neck and is really well put together. The preamp is bright, and as such I prefer the sound with dead roundwounds. The bass is reasonably heavy, but not ridiculous.
      The bass has not been gigged. 
      £700 includes TGI semi-rigid bag. Shipping available at buyers expense. Can meet within 50 miles of Bathgate, central Scotland. £50 discount if paying with BTC, ETH, DOT or ADA. 
      Not open to trades.
      If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
      p.s. here's an instagram link to me practicing with the bass:

      For sale is my Lakland 55-OS (Off Set body) in trans black with a maple board. I imported it myself from a Lakland dealer in the States earlier this year, as Lakland themselves didn't have any in stock at the time. I've yet to see any other examples of these on this side of the pond, and even though it's a cracking bass, I find myself still using my US-made 55-94 all the time, so I thought I should let this go while it's still shiny and new. It's never left the house, and apart from a tiny bit of finger swirl under the strings, it's in as-new condition.
      The pickups and configuration are similar to Lakland's Skyline 55-01: 2 x Bartolini Mk1 pickups and a Bartolini 3-band EQ, but with the addition of a three-way mid frequency select toggle switch. As usual the standard of build is excellent, with a lovely grain visible through the trans black finish. It's about average weight for a 5-string at 4.6kg, and sits very nicely on the knee or on a strap.
      The demo video below gives an idea of the tonal versatility. The price is £950 £895 and collection is preferred, but I will ship within the UK only for an additional £30. Sorry, but I'm not looking for any trades.
