    Up for sale is a really cool Japanese Moon DJB-5 bass. This is a very nice professional bass. Super build quality, great fit and finish, really nice woods. It's a good bass man.
    It is used and has some signs of use but is still visually really nice. I have included photos of most of the imperfections that I could. The most notable is a chip in the finish on the top of the treble side horn that appears to have been filled with a sharpie or something of that nature. You don't really see it nor do you see the buckle rash on the back when playing or viewing from the front. From that angle it looks very clean.

    The neck and fretboard are in great shape.

    These sell for 360000Yen which converts to $3329 US

    This is very high end for the price. I trust this is on par with US or EU boutique offerings.

    These pickups are easy to swap with single coil if that's a concern.

    Moons aren’t the only special bass in the world, but they’re among them - just not well-known on TB.

    I ilke that recording. of a JB I think it has more the shape than the sound. which is not a bad thing. guessing has a lot to do with the kent armstrongs.

    We just A/B'd this against some heavy hitters - and it beat the daylights out of everything. Unreal bass. Good call keeping it. :)
