I bought this bass from the original owner here on TB. He had painted the headstock, swapped the wiring with USA components, and changed the bridge out for a Hipshot Vintage Style. There is also a solderless block connection which allows you to change out the pickups fairly easily. I swapped them out myself with Lollars ($200 value). Original Fender pickups and black pickguard included. Will come with generic hard shell case. Currently has a Fender Parchment guard and TI Jazz Flats. I can switch them to D’addario Chromes, EB Slinky Rounds, or possibly DR Pure Blues if you prefer. I doubt you’ll find a better sounding J for the money. Free shipping in the Continental US or local pickup. Message me with any questions!
