    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"

    I have played this bass and I wish I was in a position to buy it. It sounds and feels amazing. Great bass and seller!

    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.

    Bump for a killer 5. Send me some 19mm 4 or 5 string trades.
