    I am selling my favorite jazz bass. I own a couple of R basses and this build is beyond excellent!!! I purchased from a TBr late last year. This is a true 70's sounding jazz bass!!

    Taken from previous TBr seller post: The Ulyate pickups and Aguilar pre combination is perfect!! Unlike other R basses, the neck on this has been refined (slimmer than others) and it's super fast. Great finger and slap tone!!

    Disclosure: there's a very small chip on the bridge over the b string side. Nothing that affects playability and/or sound of the bass.

    Northern Ash body
    Flame Maple neck
    Flame Maple fingerboard
    Howard Ulyate Single Coil Jazz pickups 70's wound
    Aguilar OBP-2 vol,vol,tone,stacked bass/treb active/passive switch
    Hipshot B-Style bridge
    Hipshot Tuners
    34" Scale
    22 Frets
    1 7/8" brass nut
    19MM spacing at bridge
    9.6 lbs on bathroom scale
    *Knob upgrade
    New Polyfoam case
    It comes with the original clear pickguard and the custom black pickguard (pictured next to the speakers).
    The plastic is removed from the tuners. The bass has never left my music room at home...never gigged.

    Price: $1800 (Possible trades for 5-String basses)

    Don't have that kind of bread at the moment but this is the first I've seen of this brand and I'm just gobsmacked. Singlecut J5? Absolutely gorgeous. Good luck with the sale, I'm sure someone will love that thing HARD.

    Well then maybe you would be so kind as to make a little demo video? I'm keenly interested in hearing this bad boy in action.

    This bass is back on the selling block! I am interested in trades (5-string basses only).

    Are the electronics quiet or is there a hum?
