(I took some of this description from a previous ad)
Up for grabs is an Atelier Z M265, 5 string jazz bass, made in Japan. This one was built by NYC master luthier Mas Hino during his 8 years stint with Atelier Z in Tokyo.
Solid ash body with sunburst finish, maple neck w/ white binding and inlays. Pickups are a set of early Nordstrand single coils 60's position, and preamp is an Aguilar OBP-1.
Overall, the bass is in excellent condition, it does have some minor scratches and dents, but nothing major. I would rate it on a scale of 9/10.
The bass comes with a well padded soft gigbag.
Reason for sale: I have two basically identical Atelier Z's, both ash/maple 5-strings and I only need one! Great basses.
Weight: 11.1 lbs. Really not too bad for a full size, non-chambered jazz bass.
Price: $1950 shipped
Will consider trades +/- cash for high end jazz basses (no 35" scale), 4 or 5 string. So: Fender (vintage, custom shop), Sadowsky Metro, etc. Even another Atelier (4-string perhaps)?
Will also consider trades for other high end set neck or neck-through basses, i.e. Ken Smith, again, just no 35" basses.
