    Selling my Moon JJ-5. Beautiful CAR finish. Alder body with a bound and blocked ebony fingerboard. The bass has been played and has a few marks, but nothing too serious. The crack at the B string tuner was repaired by Moon in Japan and is sealed and won't be a problem. Also photographed is a dent in the binding. There is also a mark in the finish on the back of the bass that won't photograph...looks like slight buckle rash.
    Bass is stock with Moon pickups and preamp. The preamp is Vol/Vol/Bass/Mid/Treble with a slap/turbo switch that bypasses tone pots and leaves preamp available....kind of a series (fatter) sound. Trades OK. Paypal fine. $1550 gets it shipped.

    It is awesome. I would actually love a Moon 4 string if someone has one. String spacing at the bridge is 18mm. Weight is around 9lbs. Maybe slightly under. Well balanced. I'll get an accurate weight soon. How do I measure string spacing at the nut again? If center string to center string, I'm seeing just slightly over 1.5". The entire length of the nut is 1.75"

    Why does this have to be a 5 string jazz?!?!? Been looking real hard for a Moon bass but a 4 string p. This is a beautiful bass though and a great price for a high quality bass. Don't see Moon basses on the used market very often.
