    UPDATE - I'd consider a trade for a MIJ Marcus Miller Jazz (+cash? make me an offer) or a 70's jazz (can't hurt to ask right? ha). Otherwise I'd prefer cash.

    Had some interest but both basses are still on the market.

    Modulus Alembic Bassstar -$1200 shipped OBO
    4 string Jazz w/ passive Bartolinis
    Great powerful, solid sound
    This has a beautiful wood body and graphite neck. I'd keep it but it doesn't get played anymore so I'd rather have someone who needs it play it!
    It's a passive bass with the knobs wired Volume-Volume-Tone. The neck volume knob is also a pull switch to run the pickups in series.
    There's some very minor cosmetic damage (a few dings here and there) but it is hardly noticeable. It's mostly on the back of the body.

    Fender MIM Jazz 5 w/ Bartolini p/u's and preamp - $500 OBO
    This is a great bass for the price - the Bartolini's give it a real bark and character and the pre has huge flexibility. I'd play this one more but I replaced it with an Fbass so it's not gotten much gig time. Again, I want to see this bass played!

    Volume-Tone-Treble/Bass
    Some minor cosmetic damage from gigging but nothing major or anything that affects playability or tone.


    Thanks for taking the time to look!
