    Due to an upcoming surgery I have to part with my non essential basses.

    Took me a long time to find one of these all original

    This description is stolen from where I bought it :)

    This is a 1981 Electra Long-Necker 70's style jazz bass in sunburst with a high grade flight-worthy hard case.

    This bass was made in Japan at the legendary Matsumoku factory and features lots of that great Matsumomku craftsmanship from the real neck binding, to the inlaid MOP block markers, to the MOP inlaid headstock logo. Just screams of quality.

    This bass has the original "ashtray" pickup and bridge covers as shown and is all original. Underneath are the unique OEM pickups which are metallic and have almost a mini humbucker appearance, but I believe they are single coil, not sure. You can see them exposed here:

    Asking $350 shipped
    sorry no trades on this one!

    This is the original thread. The bass looks the same as It did then

    Here is a not so awesome pic.

    I had the nut filed and put some chromes on it. It sounds and plays wonderfully!

    What is the P bass in the pic? Is that for sale too? For the item for sale, what other stuff are you looking for? Interested in any PA gear?

    That is my nordy vj5. She will be staying with me for awhile. I would be in the market for a power amp if you have that amongst your pa gear.

    I can possibly give up an RMX1450 if that works. I've got some signal processors too (dbx 223 crossover and bbe 882 sonic maximizer).
