    Moollon J V Classic in Sunburst for sale. 2012 is the build year. Bass has cosmetic wear on the body and there is spider line checking on the headstock, not cracked wood. The frets and fingerboard are in very good shape, it's mainly the body that has many dings and scratches.

    The electronics and bass sound as they should. I own several Moollon 4 strings, and wanted to try a 5'er, but sticking to 4's and need some cash. The bass could benefit from a set up as the notes get buzzy up past the 15th fret on the D string. I just haven't had the time to give it a proper set up. Down low this bass sounds real good and has very fast, smooth playability, and a fat sound as expected with Moollon basses. If you can get it set up properly and don't mind some wear on the body, you'll have a killer sounding and playing 5 string Moollon without an 18 month wait. I feel i've pictured the bass well to show its condition, but i'm happy to send you larger pics if you want to send me your email.

    9.4lbs on bathroom scale.

    Bass will be shipped with the neck removed and no case included. $2000 + shipping. Shipping should probably run $50-$75 shipped/insured via FedEx since the box is smaller, but message me your zip. ConUS only. PayPal, Venmo, Zelle all work. No Trades.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'm not a potential buyer, but am curious about the bridge and nut spacing. This looks nice and comfy! Not to mention a beautiful instrument overall.

    Edit: That copperish torte guard looks fantastic with the dark fretboard and 3TSB.

    Amazing to see it arrive in the States so soon. Someone is going to be a happy new owner of such a fine piece.

    I actually sold a Jack Casady Epiphone to the owner of SN 0660 in Spring 2020, she putting the J-V up for sale not long after, then changing hands at least once more. And I was kicking myself for not buying it soon enough when it went up for sale this past April 24th... You won't believe how cheap it was being sold for over here, it's a fine build that's certainly worth so much more :)

    Seems like the wear is from use to me.

    Correct, as the very few Moollons that were shop-aged are quite far and between. They're also not only post-2014 builds, but also I don't think YJ has even aged a J-V or P-V before. And the above is natural wear, appearing just as I saw it last year.
