    This is a tough one to sell...but bass flippers don't cry. :rollno:

    This is a gorgeous LowEnd LEJ5 Exotic in near-mint condition with a killer figured maple top.



    Brian Barrett is one of the best and nicest builders in the business. He built this bass to my specs in 2008.

    The specs:
    • Figured maple top
    • Alder body
    • Rosewood fingerboard
    • 3 pc quartersawn maple neck
    • 1 7/8" at the brass nut
    • 18MM spacing
    • 34” scale
    • 10 lbs, 13 oz.
    • Hipshot ultralite tuners
    • Hipshot A bridge
    • LowEnd 2 band preamp with passive tone control
    • Benavente Dual Coil Slim J pickups, each wired for Parallel and Series
    • Knobs from top to bottom: Vol for Neck (pull for series), Vol for Bridge (Pull for Series) Passive Tone (pull for passive), Stacked Bass/Treble
    • Original LowEnd HSC

    Brian Barrett's craftsmanship is impeccable. This is one of the finest modern Jazz basses you can find. The tone is very versatile, and the bass plays like butter.

    The bass is in near-mint condition. There are no noticeable dings or scratches that I can find.


    According to the LowEnd Basses website, this bass would cost at least $3,800 new.

    I am asking 2,500, shipped to you in CONUS. International sales are fine with me, but you will be responsible for shipping and all other related costs such as VAT, import duties, etc. PayPal preferred.

    No trades, thanks.

    Thanks for looking!

    This is so not fair, where was this bass when I paid 3,500 for my Exotic. Brian’s choice of woods is so very tasteful. I can’t believe you can let this one go. GLWYS!

    I just picked up a exotic LEJ 5 and was really blown away how good these basses are.
    Build quality, tonal pallet, quality of all the woods and parts, are as good as it gets.
