    I'm drowning in debt due to unchecked GAS. This is one of my most valuable pieces of gear... $1,500 shipped within the CONUS. This is my FIRM price and is more than $1,000 off new pricing without the wait.

    World-class Japanese craftsmanship. This is very similar to the Kenji Jino Hino signature model.

    Light ash body,
    Maple neck with pearl inlays and white trim.
    JHJ pickups by Atelier Z
    Bartolini XTCT Preamp w/ MCT 375 Mid Boost

    Atelier Z 419 bridge / gotoh GB30 tuners.

    Semi hard gig case provided.

    BUILD TIME: 4 months~

    Check out the demo from Danny at BassJapanDirect -

    For those wondering, she is 9.2 lbs (exceedingly light for this brand) and the string spacing is 19mm. Condition is excellent and nearly new. I will take a picture of the one clear coat scratch that I found this evening.

    Compared to the JHJ 189 models that have popped up on TB in the past, here are the differences according to Danny:

    "The JHJ 189 you speak of is a cost performance model, with third party preamp and lower grade pickups, the neck is inferior to this and materials are not so high grade either, plus it has the kts support rods that detract from sustain and tone a bit. The high end atelier do not use support rods, instead superior materials that have been seasoned and treated for longer, for stability with no compromise. The price however, is at least $700 or $800 more because of these differences, also the circuit on the evolution plus is more advanced. It is a bass for life, for any professional application and style."

    I own the bass Danny's playing in the demo vid! Free bump!

    If I had the cash, I'd scoop this up in a second!

    Still available folks. If you can meet me within 2 hours of zip 40502, I'll offer a discount. $1400 is only if I'm shipping and using PayPal.
