  1. $760 Shipped

    So I have two 5 string jazz basses and I can't decide which one to keep, this one or a Lakland DJ5, so both are up for sale and I'll keep the left over one.

    I assembled this bass around September - October last year. The bass has an alder body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. The body and neck are finished with 10+ coats of tru-oil (took a month just to finish it and let it cure/harden). It's in very good condition. There is a small knick near the pickguard shown in the picture and small surface swirling on the back.

    The neck has the graphite rods upgrade (NOT the steel rods) and the entire bass is light (8.9lbs). Truss rod access is at the base of the neck which means the pickguard needs to be removed to access it.

    Here are recordings I made to some Ed Friedland tracks going from Warmoth bass to M-Audio Fast Track to computer.

    Here are the remaining specs:

    34" scale
    Body: Alder warmoth deluxe 5
    Neck: Maple wamoth deluxe 5 with graphite rods
    Fretboard: Rosewood with vintage size 6230 frets (.080" x .037")
    Nut Width: 1.75"
    Bridge spacing: 17.5mm (.687)
    Electronics: Passive (V-V-T)
    Pickups: Lakland/Hanson 5-string Jazz set
    Tuners: Hipshot USA ultralite (satin silver)
    Bridge: Hipshot type-A .687 spacing (satin aluminum)

    Asking price is $760 shipped or best offer.

    Those Lakland/Hanson's are no joke. Nice deal here. Sounds great and I wish I had the dough...

    That thing looks great! Great clips too. Wish I had the $$$ for this guy also. I just recently picked up a Warmoth build very similar to this one actually. Mine is also a Warmoth neck and Warmoth body. Some top notch really high quality parts here. The Warmoth neck allows for ridiculous low action. One of the best playing J5s I've ever had. If this had been available when I bought mine, I would have opted for this guy. Mine is ash/maple, but I actually prefer alder/rosewood. GLWTS.
  7. Well my other bass sold, but I'm going to keep this up for a little bit. I've been thinking of building a poor mans Sadowsky clone recently, so if this sells for the right amount I'm going to put the funds towards that. So make offers if you are interested :D
