    Just put together this parts bass. I'm pleasantly surprised by how good it plays and sounds.

    Specs:

    Mighty Might Jazz Body (all cavities are copper shielded)
    USA Made Bound and Blocked Neck (the guy I bought it from said it was made by a luthier in NY. I put the decal on.
    Fender Custom Shop 60's Pickups
    CTS Pots
    Tuners off of a Fender American Special
    Bridge - unknown manufacturer (but I have a black Gotoh that I may put on it)
    Weight - 8.5 lbs

    Neck is slightly thinner front to back than a American Standard Jazz, has a satin finish on the back and is extremely fast. I'm going to ask the guy that I bought it from if he can give me the luthier contact info in case I want to buy another neck down the road.

    Outstanding. Is that matte grey/silver?

    She needs a few minor things done like I need to move the string tee, file the nut a little, file a few fret ends, etc, but she's 90+% done.

    I love this color scheme. I don't recall ever seeing Fender do this exact scheme (but I could be wrong).

    it's not quite matte, but it's very low-gloss. I bought the body used already painted this way.

    Thats a beauty! Really like the color combo. Unique but doesn't look weird.

    Great looking bass! Neck/inlays reminds me of my '71 J that I sold in '78 (sigh).
