I purchased this new 2 years ago .
it has seen some touring - and is still in excellent condition - was either hand carried by myself in a rugged gig-bag or was in a flight case .
*i replaced the stock pickups w/ Aguilar Vintage series jazz bass pickups w/ Alnico magnets .
*had the glossy finish taken off back of neck (professionally) so it feels like a nice aged instrument - smooth to the touch instead of tacky.
* the function of the 2 volume knobs has been changed to a more practical - master volume , pickup pan selector . tone control functions the same - and the look remains the same .
* the coolest mod for a jazz bass - "series/parallel" pickup wiring option
i had a push/pull pot installed on tone control -
with pan knob notched in the center ( both pickups full out) , you pull up on tone knob and the pickups go into "series" mode - which makes for a much fatter& louder tone - closer to a p-bass
click the tone knob back down for "parallel" (normal) jazz bass mode .
it's a totally non-destructive mod that can be removed if so desired . but it's a great option to have . ( i even had it done to my '64 jazz bass ! )
i will include the original basic fender gig bag & papers that it came with .
currently strung up with a new set of LaBella heavy-ish flat-wounds (.109,.089,.069,.049) . but i will throw in a set of round wounds in the box if so desired .
these go for around $1,100 new. (not including tax & shipping )
selling here for $800 including shipping . ( probably UPS ground)
(would prefer an NYC area in person pickup for less $$ )
