    I picked up the immaculate SX Jazz bass today from a local CL ad. This thing looks like it came right out of the box! The guy I bought it from is a guitar player who thought he wanted to dabble in bass. He said he maybe played it half a dozen times. It's an old headstock model and I noticed when I got home that it has 70's pickup spacing! Bonus! I was originally going to replace the neck with a fretless neck but now I'm not sure. It is going to get a new tort pickguard though.

    ooh...nice! Best to buy it from dabbling guitarists imo rather than from someone who's just starting out as they know all about adjustments and such.

    Yeah I had noticed it a couple weeks ago when he first listed it at $125. I was interested then because it is an old headstock model. Once I saw he had dropped it to $100 I jumped on it.

    Well technically I already have one but it's a new headstock version.
