    Anybody have any info on moon basses? Larry Graham has one and i'm really starting to like the sound.

    Moons (not Crescent Moon) are made in Japan. I have a JJ-5. The build quality is top notch with the best clear gloss finish I've ever seen. The sound is deep, full (similar to a Roscoe LG-3005) and is still defined. They're extremely hard to find used. Unfortunately, I can't provide any information about procuring one new.

    Here's a link to a TB thread.


    Here's a link to Moon's TRANSLATED (sort of) Products page.

    I have and play a Moon fretless similar to the one the Bass Gallery shop in London has for only 995 Pound Sterling. Mine sounds great, never had a better sounding fretless. Surprisingly, they did use some Warmouth parts building mine.
    Older ones have a slightly slanted neck pup.
