Vintage Modified Jaguar, in Surf Green!
This was a bold experiment - I bought this bass for the sole purpose of having it painted in surf green by my friend, who is an amateur luthier. This is his first attempt at spray painting but I think he did a great job. It's not perfect by any means, has a little orange peel here and there and she has picked up some scratches, but overall the bass looks really clean.
The paint is Re-Ranch nitrocellulose, over what was originally a sunburst Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/...ed-jaguar-bass
The neck was also refinished in nitro with a deep amber tint. It feels amazing.
She came out looking so beautiful I decided to hot-rod it and had a preamp installed, and a new white pearl pickguard made for it. It also looks killer with the original tortoise pickguard which is included. At the end of the day though, I remain a diehard jazz bass guy and I just never play this one. So the electronics have been changed back to stock. The only mods left are a side mounted jack (disconnected) and straploks. The cavity was fully routed for a preamp so it would be a cinch to convert this to an active bass. It also has my friend's logo on the headstock, that's just a waterslide decal.
Weight is exactly 9 pounds 1 ounce on my digital scale.
I'm asking $250 shipped for this unique beauty but would also be interested in a trade for a hollow body bass...my next experiment :)
That color works great on a Jag!!
That's exactly what I thought!
She gets a lot of attention any time I take her out.
Not just pretty though, it's a really solid bass.
