Up for sale is a semi custom 5 string Jazz bass. Have you ever wished Fender made a 35" scale 5 string Jazz bass? Well, here you go.
Here are the specs;
35" scale 22 fret 5 string Jazz bass. The bass weighs 10 lbs on the bathroom scale. The body is a Warmoth "standard" Jazz 5 string (same as MIM jazz body) in Swamp ash. The neck (mahogany/flame maple) is a custom neck built by the same CNC shop that makes necks and bodies for many custom bass builders in the US. (The headstock is a custom design I use on all of my "custom" bass builds and has "vintage" thin style frets.)
Here is a list of parts I used.
1. pickups - Aguilar 60's Hum cancelling 5 string Jazz pickups
2. Tone circuit - USA CTS tone pots with POI .047uF tone cap
3. Leo Quan BA V bridge
4. Dunlop strap locks
5. Hipshot Ultra lite tuners
6. Graphtech string nut
The bass is currently strung with La Bella flats, but I'm willing to re-string with strings of your choice if you send them to me or pay for new ones.
Here is the story. I purchased the body here on TB about a year ago. It sat in my garage until I finally had the time to strip the paint off. I then re-finished it in Water Based lacquer. This is my first attempt at spraying and polishing using this product. The product is good but my techniques were still "imperfect". So I'm selling this bass at a fraction of what it "should" sell for. There are some blemishes in the finish, but overall, it's a good "10 foot" bass.
After re-finishing the body I added the custom neck and re-located the bridge to make it 35" scale. It balances exceptionally well and isn't as heavy as I thought it would be. It also plays extremely well with low action. There were originally "string through" holes already in the body, so I left them to keep cost low. NOTE.....The holes do not match up with the string through holes in the bridge.
I'm letting this one go super cheep.... Just $700
You can't buy the parts for that.
