    Alright here's a bass that Id rather sell or part out than keep. Nothing wrong with it, Id just rather have the money. The whole think has been a learning experience and its seen some love but it still sounds great to me!

    - Squier Jag SS body, very light, one small ding along the top. Extra holes drilled for the adjusted bridge. ($75)

    - Dimarzio Model P and Model J pups ($70)

    - Squier Bronco 1 piece maple neck loaded with Jaguar tuners, new holes were drilled for the tuners. ($75)

    - Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge, includes just the bridge, mounts fine with original Fender/Squier bridge screws ($70)

    - New DiMarzio pots. Original control knobs sit a little high on these new pots because the stock Squier pots were a bit smaller ($25)

    - $200 + 1/2 the shipping takes the whole thing.


    The control plate holes have all been toothpicked as well as the rear strap button. Don't really have a way to weigh it but its light.

    Once again, she's not exactly in showroom condition but she's a player with some nice upgrades..for cheap.

    How do the DiMarzio's sound in it. Do they increase its low-end? Does sound fuller overall?

    The DiMarzios are hotter overall. There's a bump in the lows and low mids but they're not muddy. They're much more articulate than then stock pups IMHO.

    Ya, unfortunately they are a little too clean for my taste. How much for a package deal on the neck, body and tuners, or just the neck?

    Is the neck smooth and straight?

    If it's still available next week I may bite - but in the meantime here is a GLWTS bump.


    I'm assuming PA to 14303 (NY) would only be about $20 by USPS?

    Just a dumb question here. The bronco neck is 19 frets. The jag neck is 21 how did you get it to work?

    I guess I should go into more detail, my bad. On the description of the body it says that I drilled new holes for the babicz bridge, I had to move the bridge back a little to accomidate proper intonation with the new neck due to the fret difference.

    Yeah she's not 100% cosmetically but there's a lot of nice components and she has a lot of potential, I just don't have to room for it and its taking up room at my parents house
