    USA Fender Fretless Jazz
    I have decided 6 basses is too many, so I'm doing some downsizing to shift my focus away from the gear and toward the playing.
    This is my culmination of hand-picked best parts to create the best Jaco tribute fretless I've ever seen or played.

    - Nicely worn 3TSB Nitro USA AVRI Fender body
    - Allparts JEF-FL lined Ebony fretless neck coated with cyanoacralyte
    - Relic'd Gotoh Res-O-Lite tuners (non-reverse)
    - USA Fender pickups
    - CTS pots with .022 Sprague Ceramic Disc cap
    - Relic'd P Bass knobs
    - Vintage Fender threaded saddle bridge from the 60's, possibly even pre-CBS
    - Weighs only 8 lb.
    - Luthier built and set up perfectly

    $1000 shipped CON US in the pictured vintage G&G case
    Will consider USA P Bass trades

    Thanks for looking!
    -Darren

    I received some questions so I am posting the additional info here.

    The neck has normal side dots as shown above.
    Strings are GHS Infinity Stainless .040-.102, coated SS rounds with a thin grippy coating for excellent tactile right hand feel. These are the only coated strings I've found that don't sound dull compared to normal rounds

    Also here are neck thickness measurements, the Allparts necks have a nice semi-chunky feel.

    1.5160 nut width
    1.0395 thick at nut
    .9045 @ 1st
    .9195 @ 3rd
    9595 @ 5th
    1.0105 @ 7th
    1.0485 @ 9th
    1.0500 @ 12th
