2007 Edwards ESP Japan  E-AM-120R Jazz Bass 3TS & New Hard Case


This 4 string Edwards Bass was made in 2007 and is in excellent original condition. It features an Alder body & Hard Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard. It is equipped with a Seymour Duncan SJB-1n pickup at the neck and an SJB-1b at the bridge. These are both USA made active pickups & are fitted as standard on this model of Edwards Bass. All in all it's a superbly equipped & well made Bass guitar from ESP Edwards. 

In case you're not familiar with the Edwards brand, they are built in Japan under the umbrella of ESP for domestic use only so the only way to get hold of one outside Japan is to import one.

I actually came across this one in the UK & the owner had not imported it but bought it in a guitar shop in the South East a few years ago. It hadn't been used for some time when I got it & required a new set of strings, new battery pack and a couple of dents and some scratches repairing. All of that has been done now & although not pristine, it's in excellent overall condition for a 15 year old instrument.

This bass plays really nicely & the active pickups from Seymour Duncan are superb. The controls feature Master Volume, a pickup balancer & two band EQ which is Treble & Bass. It's very easy to get a great sound. 

I had originally thought of keeping it as I used to play bass in my band but I'm short on space so have added it to my stock! It's a beauty to play & sounds wonderful. It's currently fitted with a set of Fender flatwounds which I like but a new owner will probably want to fit his own favourites!

This bass comes with a brand new Thomann ABS case as shown
