Its time to let this go, its absolutely in mint condition, I am the second owner. I took this is part trade about a year ago for my MTD 535. I didn't think it would sit in the case but it has and now I am gassing for a Lull PJ5-24 so the Jazz is for sale. No scratches, no dings, even the pick guard still has the plastic on it. In the interest of full disclosure, there are faint lines in the paint from where the rear chrome cover sits but they are not too noticeable. I tried to get these in the pictures but they didn't show up well. I read in the "50th anniversary jazz" club here at TB that is common with these since they are shipped with the covers in place. I guess there were 500 of these made.
I am gun-shy of trading I should tell you up front but its possible in the right circumstances. As I said above, I am looking for a Lull PJ5-24 (34") or Sadowsky Metro PJ5 both in the 8 to 8.5 lb. range.
