    Hi, after log time debating I am finally putting for trade my Atelier Z M265 five string bass.

    This is an excellent example of how to make perfect 70's sounding jazz bass in five string version.
    Playability is great, action can be set very low without buzzing.

    For the record, last fall I was deciding if to move Atelier or Sadowsky MS5 and Sadowsky went out of the door and Atelier stayed..

    At the moment I have several basses for the JB sound (F-Bass 5, Fender JB 1976, Moon JJ-4) and the GAS is telling me that I need some other flavour, so this time the Atelier is on the block.


    Atelier Z specs:
    34" scale
    17 mm string spacing
    11.8 lbs weight
    Atelier Z single coil pickups
    Aguilar OBP3 preamp - controls: volume, volume, mids, stacked treble/bass
    (original Bartolini 2-band preamp included)
    Schaller straplocks
    Nice, very thick padded Atelier Z gigbag
    Everything works, no issues.

    Info in Japanese :p

    The bass I'd preferably consider for trade would be Ken Smith BSR5J or Roscoe LG/SKB 5 string.

    Thanks! :)
