Here's a pretty cool Fender bass.
An OCT 66 Precision neck I spotted at a vintage store and just HAD to have.
After spending a fair amount of time trying to find an unmolested body within a few years give or take from '66...
I saw a Mexi Jazz body on craigs for $80.
So I saw this as my opportunity to experiment with various pickups without endangering the originality of a vintage Fender.
Added the American Standard guard to replace the beat up white one.
I was lucky in that it didn't take much tinkering to get the setup to a really nice action.
I can play fingerstyle and hit 'em fairly hard before clanking off of the frets.
Wow, it's great. I really love the C nut width.
It now has Area Js
in it and they are the answer for me.
They are everything the DiMarzio ad copy says they are.
Thanks as well to all TBers that supplied great opinions on the Area Js
And yeah, I guess I will go for a Black with Tort number soon.
Soon as I take some better pics of baby.
