    The Homage series is Scott Surine's tip of the hat to Fender Jazz basses, of which I'm a big fan. This is not a Jazz clone or copy.

    Neck through, Southern Ash wings, Birdseye board, ABM bridge, Gotoh tuners. Surine branded Levy's Cordura bag. Bartolini single coils and custom NTCT-H preamp. The preamp is three bands boost only. Turn all three bands down and there's no output. Once I figured this out it was easy to dial in killer tones.

    The Surine decal is worn off under the string tree. That's it as far as issues. It took a minute to figure out how the preamp (NTCT-H) worked, now I can dial in whatever I want. Typically just a big mean fingerstyle tone or vicious slap. I just had Kevin Brubaker build a ramp for it because I planned on keeping it. It's installed with two-sided tape so it's removable.

    Turns out this is serial number 001 in this model. There's a full color brochure featuring the bass I bought on the Surine website including front and back pics, specs AND retail pricing.

    I have a lot of great basses by most standards, I'm selling a few. This bass retailed for $5k new, $2200 shipped in CONUS for a quick sale. PM for fastest response. Trade value would be higher, I'd much rather sell than trade.
