Sale/Trade 2011 AmStd P black/maple
This is a feeler for now. I finally got bit by the jazz bass bug, and have several Precisions. So I'd like to trade my current main workhorse for a 2008 or newer American Standard Jazz. I'll add $50 for this trade, all else being equal or close.
The neck is slim, perfectly finished, and flawless. Gloss on the front, satin on the back. It adjusts easily and perfectly and has perfect fretwork. Tuners are smooth and without play in them. Weight is light, I'd guess in the mid-high 8's. it is all stock except for the black guard. It came to me that way; I don't have the original white one. The body has very little swirling, and a couple very small nicks on the back and one on the end near the bridge.
The same model and era of jazz bass is what I want. I also have a soft spot for the recent honey burst/maple American Special hand stained GC models, which I would consider an even trade for, either jazz or P. I would not include the flight case with a trade for that, but a regular SKB hardshell case or gig bag, depending on what the special comes in. I have all case candy and tools and those would be included.
If the right trade (or sale) doesn't come through, I'll keep this. It really is a wonderful bass, especially the neck.
I'll post pictures when I get a chance later.
