    Looking to trade a DJ 4 I acquired less than two years ago. Bought it brand new from sweetwater (those are the pics here) and upgraded it with a DJ Retro. I have the original jack and pot assembly as well.

    Update: Considering sale now as well. 950 shipped CONUS. 800 if you want it without the John East DJ Retro preamp - if someone wants to buy without the preamp, I'll put the original jack assembly back in and sell the DJ Retro preamp separately. Warning - the preamps are not always easy to get a hold of with the DJ plate. I had to wait a few months to get mine from bestbassgear.com

    Anyway...

    Basically this bass never really felt "right" for me. The banjo frets aren't my thing. The neck shape and fret profile are hallmarks of lakland basses, but it just never felt as good to me as my trusty fender p. There's nothing wrong with it that I can see at all! It just wasn't what I was expecting.I'm hoping to trade this for perhaps another fender bass (not a straight precision preferably - I already have one). I don't know why I thought that putting an expensive preamp in a bass that I was iffy on was a good idea, but here we are.

    Anyway, it's been set up professionally, never gigged, and hardly played at all. I'm interested in trading for something else, preferably a good jazz bass with a nice neck, something more like my fender, but I'll entertain others as well. I like Ibanez necks as well, so a nice SR series bass might be of interest.

    1.5" nut width. Not familiar with that particular model. Link to a web page or specs?
