I've owned this bass for a couple of months, but it turns out I just can't bond with the sound. I may just be too traditional, and it seems that any benefits of active electronics or even a bridge pickup are lost on me (I traded my Tribute L-2000 for the same reason). So my loss can be your gain!
Judging by the amount of info I could find online, these are pretty rare. There hasn't been one for sale on TB in 2 years. Here's what I know:
- Made in Japan in 1991. It must be one of the earliest ones, as apparently they didn't show up in catalogs until 92.
- Very high quality neck-through construction with ebony fretboard. Playing this bass is like driving a luxury car. Low action. Currently strung with D'addario Chromes. It's probably one of the best basses I've played.
- The serial number ends with a W , which indicates a wide neck. It's still very comfortable to me and doesn't seem too big, but it's closer to a P than a J so keep that in mind.
- Jackson P/J PUs with active bass & treble controls, blend knob, and volume. Very versatile.
- I'd say it's in very good condition. There is one spot near the jack where it looks like the previous owner ran into something (I never saw it until I was taking pictures), but other than that it's in amazing condition for a 20 year old bass.
- Will ship in a well-padded Fender gigbag.
As far as trade ideas go, I'm really more interested in guitars right now. By approximate interest level, here are some ideas:
- Japanese Les Paul/Gibson styles (Tokai, Greco, Epiphone Elite, etc) or cheaper Gibsons.
- Fenders (MIJ, MIA, Jazzmasters, Jags, maybe a Strat?)
- Other cool classic/vintagey stuff (ala Gretsch, Rickenbacker, strange non-pointy things)
- As far as basses, if you have an MIJ Precision (50s, 60s, etc) or something else vintagey let me know.
- Feel free to send me an offer even if you have something not listed above. The worst I can say is no.
Cash going either way will be fine for the right deal.
As far as selling, I'd like to see $500 PP/ shipped
