    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!

    Sorry, not really looking for trades. I have some big bills due soon and have to clear house. I’m a 4 string guy anyway ;)

    The case is nothing fancy but the Am Special models don’t come with cases from Fender. This will keep it safe during transportation though.

    Weight is 9 lbs 7 oz so about average for a J Bass. Sits nicely on a strap like a J does. Could possibly include a padded strap I’m not using.

    Willing to include a brand new $100 strap! Nice padded leather but I have a longer than normal torso and it doesn’t quite work for me. X-Clef

    Did these come stock with the matching headstock?

    No, it was sprayed by the original owner who I bought it from on TB. He scanned the original American Special Decal (also black) and printed out a new one. There are a few rough spots but overall, it is smooth. I attached a few photos showing this.
