Yes, a relist from this summer. I'm way down the 5 string path and I'm just not going to be using this guy.
The body is the Japanese Ash/Sen and the bass is 9lbs. 13oz. I put on a new Tort guard, new BadAss
, new Hipshot
tuners, new control plate, Schaller
strap locks and had a full fret level and polish about 3 years ago. Needs nothing but new strings.
The neck is chubby and round backed, not unlike a 70's Jazz, extra skinny string spacing at the nut and has no issues. The inlays are authentic Mother of Toilet Seat and the fingerboard is oddly dark toned under clear gloss. It is a 3 pc. maple neck but only on the headstock, the neck itself is solid 1 pc. I knocked down the gloss off the back of the neck w/steel wool, no dings or dents there.
The pickups are real beefy and strong, I should have someone clone these before I let it go. Very P toned neck pickup, the bridge p/u by itself not as strong but I think that's about par for the course with a Jazz Bass. I have it strung with Ken Smith Slicks which sound great for Motown or JPJ tones. Bumps and bruises typical of a played 35 yr old instrument, nothing heinous. Comes with a nice thick padded Cordura Made in USA gigbag. $600 plus shipping OBO.
