2003 Black Epiphone Flying V Bass for sale. I don't think you can get these new any more as they were a limited run though don't quote me on that. It's in very good condition with just a few minor marks on its extremities. Nice low action. This is with the gold coloured hardware. No case or bag I'm afraid. It just isn't being used as I personally favour my jazz bass. Could do with a clean I guess as it has literally been gathering dust. Happy to consider a trade but not for a bass or bass amp. Would consider pedal/rack tuner/decent bass effects/PA gear. £195 ono. Email me please at wayne_russell1@hotmail.com

Fender Usa JP-90 bass guitar. A rare example of this mix of Jazz and Precision model, dated from 90/91. Owned by a pro muso, this bass has travelled the world. Because of this there are signs of wear and tear, but nothing excessive for a bass of this age. Well worth seeing.

Asking price is £500.

6 string through-neck bass by" Fine" guitars. Beautiful through-neck 6 string bass with active pickups, giving a wider than normal range of sounds. Despite the wider fingerboard this is an easy bass to play.

Asking price is £290.  0191 442 2078  or 07884337666.
