Hello fellow TB hounds I have a MIJ lefty 62RI from 96. It has the little oval 50th anniversary sticker on the back of the headstock and, by taking it all apart and checking the neck etc, it seems all stock. Not worth a great deal, I would say. I paid $900AUD for it used, but you must remember that our dollar was in the dumps back then, and it's a lefty. I will never trade it, and it's a great bass. I was thinking about swapping out the scratch plate for a pearloid, so it sorta matches my Ray5. I really like pearloid (mother of pearl), so was contemplating those sticker things. I have sources for both of these online. Then, I was wondering about swapping out the stock pups for maybe some Lane Poors or maybe some Fralins. I have absolutely no issue with the way this bass sounds or performs. Just thought that I might "hot rod" it. My Ray5 is perhaps my main instrument now, but my band members love it when I pull out the J. Thoughts?
