    [Putting this out there, will be adding pictures when I get home]

    Made in Japan Fender Jazz '75 RI
    Ash body, maple / maple, white blocks and binding
    U###### serial number dates this bass between '95 and '96

    I added a set of Nordstrand NJ4's with CTS pots, and it sounds incredible. The bridge pickup tone is *to* *die* *for.* It's in really good shape, only a few little dings here and there. I have a white and a tort pickguard for it, but they're not installed. It *might* need a new control plate or a little modification to get the pickguard on, though. I used the plate from another bass when I did the pots and it has more of a point than a normal one.

    This thing plays incredibly, probably the best Jazz neck I've ever played. It's a touch slimmer than normal but with a really nice shape. Not that heavy either, I'd guess 9ish but I'll weigh it.

    $750 shipped. I don't have a case for it but will pack it very well, or I can go to GC and grab a cheap gig bag for it as extra protection if you'd like. I priced this based on what I've seen some other ones go for around here, but feel free to make me an offer. I'm not looking for trades, though.

    So there's the one ding on the left side of the body, there's a little bit of the typical headstock rash, and a couple little fingernail marks here and there. Pretty typical stuff for a 12ish year old bass.

    Nice bass. Bump from a native Wisconsinite :)
     
  6. Beautiful bass. . . and a beautiful dog as well. Corgis are the greatest.

    Would there be more interest in this bass with pickguard? If anyone cares I can try to pick up another control plate that would allow the pickguards to fit without modification...

    and doggie...I have a Corgi/german shepherd mutt, he herds me throughout the house! Bump for a nice Japanese fender, I swear by them and gig exclusively with my Marcus Miller! They're build quality is even closer than the American ones to vintage Fenders in feel and aesthetics.

    I just got the control plate swapped and pickguard put back on (although I can't find all the screws for it...I'm dumb and lost them I think.)

    Then I was screwing around with iMovie and, well...in case anyone wonders what this thing sounds like:

    Sorry I'm ugly and suck at bass :(
