    SOLD

    FS is my prior main gigging bass, a Washburn Taurus T-25. Five strings, neck-through, passive jazz pickups, nice growl to it. 24-fret neck with easy access to the high frets. Natural mahogany satin finish, feels really nice. All stock except I put a set of Loxx straplocks on it, which I can include or put the regular strap buttons back on if you prefer. Heck, I'll even throw in the strap. Comes with a gig bag, will ship well-boxed.

    The body of this bass has a nice compact feel to it, very comfy and playable. BP gave it an Editor's Choice award back when it came out.

    The only thing I ever had doubts about with this bass was purely a personal preference thing; I decided I was a little more comfortable with a more tightly-radiused fretboard (I believe this one is 14"). That's just me. It plays great and looks great on stage. There is a small ding on the headstock and a light 1" finish scratch near the jack, neither shows on stage.

    No trades please: I'm only selling it because I bought a custom bass from John Toon and need to replenish funds.

    $350 shipped.

  2. I have a friend who had the 4-string version of this. Great little bass, with a nice growl to it.

    It would make a nice project bass with an electronics upgrade, I suspect.

    Could you measure both pickups? Overall length, and distance between the screw holes, both pickups.

    Also, the string spacing at the bridge, centre to centre...

    Happy to -

    The pickups are each 4" x 3/4" (102 mm x 18 mm). Screw holes are standard jazz arrangement, two each front and back of each pickup (not at the ends). They are spaced 1 3/4" from each other side-to-side (46 mm) and 1" front to back (25 mm). That's with a household ruler, don't own a pair of calipers. Basically, I'm pretty sure they're standard five-string jazz dimensions.

    String spacing at the bridge is pretty tight - I measured it at 5/8" (16 mm) center-to-center.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!

    EDIT: by the way, in case people are curious, bathroom scale is giving a weight of 9 lbs.

    I've always liked the look of these. With it's slim waist and contoured body. Nice wood selection too. GLWTS... Trade plus cash? (In my sig.)

    hmmm ... interesting. I'd been aiming for a straight sale, though. Let me think about it a bit.
