1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

I want to pull the trigger bad on this one..

    It's not the best of Vintage Jazz knockoffs tho'

    Anyway:
    it should sound good: pickups were not that bad at all, and if you ain't got the proverbial lemon, they were reliable and stood time fine

    Just work that backscratch out, please!
    Let it more relic'd and "RoadWornish" or it will look like a violent hit on the wood, rather than expected wear.

    Finally pay attention to the trussrod and trussrod cover weak points on these basses

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    Do it, that case is worth 150-200. Some has a hohner jazzlike that for sale here for $450, with no case.

    She's mine now....

    I could not afford an American bass with this type of fretboard. ( I'm hoping this satisfies my Gas for now..:rolleyes:

    And if that's the case, please share impressions with all of us:)

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    PS: if everything else's ok, please work that backscratch out;)

    And tear screws out of bridgeside holes... better holes alone...

    Yes, please do! And those bridgeside holes are for an ashtray, right?
