    This is my brand new Moon JJ5 Custom Larry Graham Signature 5-String in Navy Blue. This is a custom order that was completed in Feb 2021.

    The beautiful Moon JJ5 features an an all-in-one maple neck finished in the body color with a urethane top coat. The neck action is low and the fretwork is excellent. The bass is a real joy to play!

    It has 2 Bartolini pickups with the Bartolini NTMB preamp with cut, notch & boost for punchy lows and crisp highs. The tone on this bass is funky and extremely versatile.

    The bridge is the Hipshot Type-A Hi-Mass Brass with a chrome finish. This is an upgrade from the original Gotoh bridge. The Hipshot allows for adjustable string spacing, which is currently set wide, right around 19mm.

    These basses are custom-order only and take 4-6 months to build. This is a unique opportunity to own a very special, one-of-a-kind bass at a great price, without the wait.

    Continental US only.

    Here’s the specs:
    Body: Light Ash
    Neck/Fingerboard: Maple
    Scale: 34”
    Grip: Thin D
    Nut: Brass 47mm
    Bridge: Hipshot Type-A Brass
    Pickups: Bartolini Jazz
    Preamp: Bartolini NTMB 2 band
    Controls: Vol/Vol/Bass/Treble
    Tuners: Gotoh GB630 Resolite
    Case: Moon Std Gig Bag
    Weight: 9lb 12.7oz

    It was ordered/built with the Hipshot, not replaced.

    Very nice! I have an old 1989 Moon JJ4 and it's by far one of the best basses I've ever owned. These are the top tier of Japanese basses!

    Man that is a nice bass, I wish I had the scratch to buy it. Unfortunately being unemployed has slowed me down quite a bit. It looks stellar though.

    Nah! I listed this weeks ago. The fretless I’m looking at is pricey so I need to move one of my pricier basses.

    Yeah, it seems like it does. I just got an MTD with 19mm. So I widened the spacing on this Moon to 19mm and it feels just like my MTD now.
