Very nice reliced Jazz bass here from New England Custom Guitars, check out this thread for pics and all of the details: New England Custom Guitars Relic'd Jazz Bass (Fretspot J)
Also, here is a video of this bass in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRXjwzYMqTM
. Sounds great!
I'll add some recent photos to this thread when I get a chance, but in the meantime I thought I'd throw this out there to see if anyone is interested.
The only thing I've done to the bass that is different from what is shown in the thread above is to add a Babicz bridge. The Babicz is a great bridge but it you want to stick with the vintage vibe, I have the original as well and it would be easy to change it back. Both bridges will be included in the sale.
I no longer have the foam case mentioned in the thread above, but I do have a decent hard shell case to ship it in.
The thread above says the weight is about 9 lbs, but I think it is probably closer to 9.5 lbs. Not a featherweight, but well balanced and comfortable to play.
I'm not sure what this bass cost new, but based on the price of other guitars from New England Custom, I figure it was at least in the $1200 or so range. I have about $850 into it, IIRC. I'll let it go for $750
Will also consider trades for a similar quality P bass, Mesa Walkabout, Orange Bass Terror, or nice preamps.
Thanks for looking!
