    This is a killer jazz bass! Super solid and absolutely gorgeous. This Noguera has great vintage tone with the modern flexibility and clarity.

    Noguera basses are high quality instruments, handmade and crafted with an attention to details. This bass sounds and plays fantastic. Tons of punch, clarity - great for fingerstyle and slap. It's one of those seldom found basses where each note on the fingerboard plays with the same weight and consistency. The B string is tight and pronounced for a 34" scale, and the B is playable up and down the neck. I really like the tone knob which recreates a great vintage sound.

    I'm the bass' second owner, I bought it from Mitch (basses55) 2 years ago.
    Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer!

    Yessir!

    You already know, this one is a fantastic instrument, nothing short of gorgeous. But, life can require us to "thin the herd" on occasion.

    Come on Talkbass, y'all need to do some homework about Noguera Basses if you don't already know!

    Are the pickups hum canceling single coils , and do you have any trade interests?

    Pickups are single coil - more aggressive and punchy than polite sounding hum canceling pickups. The bridge pickup is the most Jaco sounding pickups I've heard.

    For sale only, not looking to trade at this time.
