    It's got:

    • beautiful naturally relic'ed patina
    • a good neck
    • all notes play up the neck
    • nice weight - 8.7 lbs
    • sounds amazing, original pickups work as they should
    • comes with period correct case
    A few things to note:
    • reissue pickguard
    • non-original nut
    • not sure if frets are original or have been replaced but there is virtually no fret wear
    • neck pocket is a little on the larger side on the bass side, but doesn't effect anything
    • looks like pickup areas were routed out a tiny bit at some point
    • foam under pickups is hard and dried out
    I really love the way this one looks but have not been bonding w/ the skinny j bass neck. I prefer a fatter p bass neck.

    I know how that is not bonding with basses, especially those skinny necks. I'm sure it has that great sound Jazz' produce.
