    Trades: Ash/maple 5 string 34 18mm or less jazz bass

    In excellent condition, only very light scratches in certain spots on the back from normal use and some pick guard swirling. I am the second owner. Comes with tools, strap locks, and case. Strung with D'addario XL medium lights. Sets up with low action and Yamaha really dialed in the PJ setup, very well balanced and punchy pickups with a lot of blend options and high output for a passive bass. Played this bass back to back with a Fender US Pro V and it put it to shame. 18mm bridge spacing and smaller nut spacing really makes this an easy transition into a 5.You won't find a bad review of these basses anywhere. 9.8 lbs on scale.

    These are incredible basses! They outplay anything in their price range. Someone will be lucky snagging one of these while the sunburst models are sold out almost everywhere!

    Very nice basses for sure. I saw a used midnight blue one at a local Guitar Center. Wish I'd bought it. Was gone the next day.

    Most of the weight is in the body, the neck is relatively slim at the nut and front to back, tuners are lightweight as well.

    Just did a quick setup check and threw on some new strings. This bass really nails the "P bass with a pick" sound ala The Smiths and other new wave bands, love the output on it and the ability to blend in the bridge pickup. Really kicks through my GK700 4x12 rig, would love to hear it through an SVT setup though.
