    For sale is my Atelier Z M2010. Basically, it's a special edition for the year 2010. It's a M265, but with the addition of the musicman humbucker pickup in the center, Atelier Z preamp, and a traditional jack plate and black pickguard. Its a great sounding bass. Really nails the 1970s marcus miller Fender tone, but with the musicman Stingray pickup, it can take on a whole other personality. Weight wise, it comes in on my kitchen scale as just shy of 10.8 pounds and in my opinion, it really adds to the tone of this thing. Anyone who's played an M245 before knows this is the lighter end of these. String spacing is 18.5mm.

    The bass is in great shape. some play wear, and a couple pressure marks, but nothing through the finish. Comes with an Atelier Z gig bag and strap locks.

    34"

    Controls are:
    stacked jazz vol/vol
    musicman volume / pull switch for passive
    switch for JJ or MM pickups
    Mid
    Stacked bass / treble

    These are some of the best trad.-jazz-on-roids basses ever. Would take this over any of its US built Fender-style counterparts and I’ve owned them all.

    Do you notice a difference in volume between the MM pickup & the JJ switching?
