    So based on my last sale/trade, and the fact that I've got no feedback, I want to give you guys all of the information I can about this bass.

    First, pictures:

    It's a 1978 Fender Jazz Bass in White and there are several important things you should know about it:

    -This thing is a beast, I have to weigh it but I'd guess it's 11 plus lbs.
    -The neck and set up on this instrument are very good, and if you like late 70's Jazz basses, this is a good one (despite the weight.)
    -The electronics are NOT all original, but this bass does have super-old seymour duncan quarter pounders (possibly super stacks) superin burgundy. (I think Duncans only came with burgundy covers in their early years, somebody can correct that.) The pick-up sound might be the reason I've kept this thing as long as I have, they really are that cool sounding.
    -There is a route under the pickguard (pictured.)
    -The bridge has been replaced with a Badass II (pictured.)
    -It comes with the original hardshell case.
    -I don't have the original pickups or bridge.
    -Last but not least: This is a players instrument, not a collector piece. I don't want anyone to think that I'm trying to misrepresent this as something more than it is.

    I think that it's a super cool instrument, but I'm jonesing for other stuff.

    I would like $1400 (OBO) shipped for it or:

    -A Roscoe Beck IV
    -A Mid to Late 90's Fender Bass (American or deluxe) (plus cash)
    -A Carvin Bromberg 4 string
    -An Epi Jack Casady (plus cash)
    -A six string with 18mm + spacing
    -Any combination of basses and cash for a person that wants this bass.

    You can either PM me or email me at charliebigred@gmail.com (which is preferable.)

    I'm in Chicago if you'd like to check it out in person. I'd really like to do a local deal, if at all possible.

    Man... That is so cool. Is it really that yellowed or is it the lighting in the picture?
