Sounds great, plays great. It’s been very well set up.

Let my failure be your gain!
I bought this bass and accessories from Guitar Center, fully intending to learn to play it since I played stand-up bass 50 years ago.
I thought this would be an easy switch…. I was wrong.

Tried 3 or 4 times and then gave up, embarrassed. I think I’m too old

I spent a bundle, including accessories:
– Schecter Stiletto Extreme-4 Electric Bass – Black Cherry 489.00
– Road Runner Avenue Series Padded Gig Bag 44.99
– Livewire Advantage 10’ Instrument Cable 17.99

with Reverend P-blade (precision bass) pickups, and stacked passive volume and tone controls.

 

 

I guarantee this will be the lightest bass you’ve ever played. Perfect balance, great setup, and amazing clear focused tone.

 

Currently sporting flatwound strings.

 

 

Can install some dr black beauty rounds if desired. Takes to drop tuning setups very well thanks to the reverse headstock.

Full 34 inch scale fretboard. Not the “Short Scale – SS” model.

Search for Fender Squier Part Number 0328900500 for all specs and details.

Previous owner carefully removed the Squier Jaguar Bass decal from the front of the headstock, but the details on the back of the headstock clearly identify this bass.

The only noticeable flaw is a dent on the edge of the headstock between the A and D tuners. The last photo provides a close-up of this dent.

New Strings. Set up nice and low. Recently adjusted intonation.

This is a rare bass by most standards. Great condition except for a small chip at the bottom of the body. Plays great, sounds great with great tonal versatility. You don’t see them often as their production numbers were limited. Great price!

1985 Ibanez Destroyer Bass Guitar

1985 Ibanez Destroyer Bass Guitar

 

 Ibanez Destroyer bass in EXCELLENT condition with OHSC. 1985 vintage, made in Japan (S/N H857612) and still kicking ass. Sounds absolutely amazing, and has a crazy fast thin neck that is paint matched to the body. Set-up with low action and has been well cared for. Includes DiMarzio straplocks and strap. Was upgraded by a previous owner with a high mass bridge and pot knobs.distroyer bass by ibanez

Minor body ding (highlighted in photos) and some very minor oxidation. Looks way better than you’d ever expect for a bass it’s age, and pups have a nice modern sound. Active (fresh 9V included if you want it) with tons of flexibility in tone shaping.

Vintage 70’s MIJ Precision-style Bass

This is a 1970’s Made in Japan Precision-style bass. It’s not quite full-scale, but not a short scale either. It’s been professionally setup and plays and intonates well. The original pickup was completely dead, so it’s been replaced with a Seymour Duncan Antiquity 50’s-style pickup. Great output and sounds amazing. 

 

70`s p bass

The bass is all original with the exception of the pickup.

The bass is in great condition and feels great. 

Japanese instruments can be very hard to pin down to a particular manufacturer. I think I’ve found a bass that’s almost identical online under the name “Delta”.

 

I’d be happy to send on the link if you’d like to check it out. Regardless, the bass is very well made and sounds and feels great, which is often the case with vintage Japanese instruments.

Publishers Comments : Like I have said many times before if you have a 70s Japanese Bass like this Keep it. If you don’t…

Get One

true story these are some of the best sounding and playing basss out there including the american made Fenders of the era.

These Japanese factories of the 70s and early 80`s had it going on for real, As far as high quality craftsmanship goes there is none better when it comes to bass guitars of this era.

Ive seen these bass guitars sell for 800- 1200 dollars with upgraded electronics, And they sound wonderful I know i have 2 of these.
