Maruszczyk Jake 5p - *SOLD*
Orpington BR6


Recommended Posts

Sadly not being used as defaulting to 4 strings and need to make room for incoming. 


Purchased from @Paul S back in April, and he had it commissioned from new. Original for sale thread here: 




  • Finished in solid black with BWB 3 ply pickguard (you can see the grain through the paint)
  • Swamp ash body. 
  • Bird's eye maple neck and fingerboard with carbon rods in a matte finish. 
  • Luminlay side dots.   
  • Headstock with simple M logo. 
  • Hipshot B style bridge with 17mm spacing. 
  • 45mm at the nut. 
  • Hipshot HB6C 1/2" tuners. 
  • Passive electrics with usual P bass volume and tone. 
  • Domed chrome knobs. 
  • Delano PC5 AL/M2 pickup. 
  • Currently strung with TI flats. 
  • Weighs 3.7kg, just over 8lbs


Comes with original certificate and spec sheet and generic Chase hardcase.


Condition wise I would say this was excellent overall. There's a small scrape to the headstock and a hairline crack to the black finish by the neck pocket along side a small scratch. No other dings but some pick marks to pick guard and swirls on body as you find on a black bass.


I've done a quick setup from when I got it and now B string sounds dead which it wasn't before, not entirely sure what I've done! Also can't quite get the treble pickup high enough (3mm) so either needs new foam or my action is too high. 


Offered here before it goes off for a commission sale somewhere. Looking for £900 collected from Orpington BR6. Can also be collected from Hendon NW4 but you'd need to bring your own amp if you wanted to play. Don't really want to post and not looking for any trades. Happy to drive up to an hour from Orpington. Any inspection welcome.

Would you post it?

I’d rather not unless no “local” interest but I appreciate this limits my market. 

I’m Camden way tomorrow so am going to take it into the Bass Gallery for consideration of a commission sale. If no interest from that will offer postage.

Is this still for sale? I'm pretty  local to you. I'm in Croydon CR7




Currently at the Bass Gallery in Camden for commission sale with adjusted price for commission and allowance for offers. 

If serious interest can retrieve it.
