    You want da funk? Well it don't get much funkier than this! Moon Japan made the legendary Larry Graham signature jazz bass for the Sly & the Family Stone / Graham Central Station bassist and the JJ-4 model is very similar (just doesn't have the all white neck). This one gets IT with a super fast neck with really low action.

    The bass is Used but in Good Condition (given the age of the bass); it has lots of honest player wear on the body (nicks, scratches and scuffs, aging/color variation on the finish), but no major dings, cracks or dents, just normal wear from age. However, the back of the neck is very smooth (finish intact), the fingerboard is very clean and has been oiled, the frets are in excellent condition (hardly any wear), and the bass was setup with new roundwound strings with very low action (truss rod and saddle screws all turn smoothly). This listing is for the bass and vintage Japanese gig bag.

    It's a late 80s/early 90s model. I don't know the exact year as there's no serial number that I can see. I can pop the neck and take some pics of the pocket/heel if you like.
