I'm bailing out on this build project. Came to my senses. I've already got several J Bass. Why another? I just bought this bass from a fellow TBer last week and my Warmoth tort guard just came UPS yesterday! Tort guard is brand new and still has the plastic.
Warmoth alder Jazz Bass body (not the dinky!), decent weight at 4 lbs & 15 oz. Almost in mint condition and very, very near to it. A few micro light scratches from being handled. A minor and almost not to be seen paint bump at the of the neck cavity in the lower bout and almost touching the point on the pickguard. Hardly worth mentioning.
A former owner drilled out the 4 mounting holes to about the next larger drill bit size. I have shimmed the holes back to specs with brass tubing glued into the holes. Inset on both sides to not interfere with mounting screws, plate and neck.
There are no pickguard holes. Two holes (not 3) were drilled for the control plate and one hole was drilled for the center hole of a vintage type guard. The Warmoth guard covers it up. Strap button holes already drilled.
A really, really nice body! Candy Apple Red (metallic).
Included.................tort guard, pickguard screws, control plate and screws (no pots or jack), neck plate and black plastic plate cushion and 4 mounting screws.
