    Nash jazz bass JB75 with a beautiful bound black blocks..birdseye neck and fingerboard! black medium relic with Dimarzio pickups....this bass looks, feels and sounds awesome! It has a huge sound! I didnt know those threaded saddle bridges could get a sound so full and sustain so long! so Bill Nash must be doing something right! Looking to trade for a newer Ric or a Lull 4 string...but you can throw any trade by me. worst I can say is kcuf off! lol only reason I am selling this is I am having a MJT built now which should be done soon! I am not even sure I want to sell this because I have no idea how the MJT will feel and this bass feels wonderful! Comes in a G&C vintage case like the ones Fender uses for their AVRI...except it has black lining and shaped. $1400 shipped conus.

    here is how it sounds just a recording with my iphone that ran out of memory 3/4 through! but you can hear it..its strung with old 7250s with the black silks.

    I will make this for sale as well as trade....used regular ones sell around 1300 this one has the bound birdseye neck so I was thinking 1400 would be more then fair shipped CONUS.

    Well I just asked the previous owner and he thinks its ash but can not guarantee it. I really dont want to take the neck off and look at the pocket...the bass is set up so straight and perfect I dont want to mess that up! plus theres no guarantee there isnt paint sprayed over it and I would have taken the neck off for nothing....

    I can tell you this its a very warm full tone! It sounds much better then my MIA standard. much fuller sound....I was A/B'n them with each other today....and I wouldnt be selling this if I wasnt having pretty much the same bass built! I got a little ancy and picked this up cuz the suspense for getting mine is killing me! this will be 5th jazz bass and thats a little too redundant so I am looking to try something new that I havent tried. a Ric or Lull or dingwall or something. I am pretty much a jazz bass guy....need a little different flavor!

    Yeah I might regret selling this! It really does play and sound great! I am playing with it right now....and thinking to myself do I really want to get rid of this!

    So I went and got a set of these same pickups and put them in my MIA yesterday to try and make it sound as good as this nash....and the nash still sounds better!!!! I seriously dont know how they do it! I am kinda mad! I thought I was going to make a huge improvement to my std jazz! guess it just goes to show its more then just pickups!
