    I sold this a few years back to a TBer and it was sold again to another TBer (via Craiglist). Well that guy figured out it was once mine (via TB), contacted me and I got her back (THANK YOU TBer CarpCutter!!!)! She's still in the same condition as when I took these pics a few years ago. The only difference is that the original bridge it now back on her (vs the BA-II).

    She is one of a gem of a 70's Fender. Many were heavy and/or not built well. This one is under 10 lbs, tight neck pocket and plays great (low, buzz-free action)! Original pickups, pots, pickguard, etc that all date to 1977. Lovin it!!!

    I remember that bass, and wanting it, back then you had it for sale for $1977 bucks which I thought was clever.

    Cool story.

    It's also one of the nicest ash bodies I've seen in a 70's Fender, especially at that weight.

    congrats on getting it back :bassist:

    Agree, the grain is just awesome and it's weight is very low for a 70's Fender. It plays great too!! ;-)

    Looks like its in unplayed condition - the case looks used, not the bass. Beautiful Jazz Bass. Congrats on reuniting!
