    $750 shipped for the whole gaggle of parts!

    Capri Orange is my dream Fender color. I bought this on TB a few years ago, and haven't seen a CIJ version for sale since then. Quite rare. I just don't really play it enough, and prefer fanned frets nowadays.

    I'll have to Google how to date it based on the serial number, but I think it's from 2000 or 2001.

    As you can see, there are 2 necks. The neck it is wearing is an MIM P neck that is very comfortable, has Schaller tuners on it, and has really great fretwork. It also has inlay decals and the truss rod adjusts at the nut.

    The original neck is CIJ, much wider and flatter than the MIM, and needs a washer or two on the truss rod to get it to adjust into a back bow. It adjusts at the heel. It may also need a fret leveling, but I'm not sure as it never setup quite how I needed it to in order to check (because of it running out of adjustment).

    The current pickguard/ electronics installed are also MIM. I put this on there because I liked the creamier color of the MIM guard at the time. The original guard has since aged to be more of an off-white like the MIM, and I'm pretty sure these reissues use an American Fender pickup (don't quote me on that). Regardless, it sounds awesome with the MIM pickup/ electronics.

    Price shipped CONUS only. I'll include a cheap gig bag, but make sure to package extra well. Make an offer, will entertain trades only for an overdrive, compressor or envelope filter + cash.

    Thanks, I'm a solid believer that it's the greatest color Fender ever produced.

    Is there anyone out there that wants to make an offer on either or both necks? I know there's a TB'er I've met that would gladly take the loaded body off my hands...
