    Hey there folks. Long time no talk. I have my personal "Super Jazz" bass up for sale. I've been playing this baby since I built it for myself in 2015. It's been good to me, but I've got the itch to build something a bit different. Getting tired of the "Jazz" bass body style. "To each their own" I always say.

    Anyway, This baby started out as a basic Jazz bass, but then I added the "twin J" pickups. They are wired as north/series/south actuated by a mini toggle switch and selectable with Vol knobs.

    Here are the specs.
    Neck - 35" scale, Curcio Custom - Maple/Rosewood, Ultra thin profile with Rosewood/Maple blocks. 1 3/4" graphtech nut, thin "banjo" style frets. (Low,Low,Low action)
    Body - Swamp Ash with Spalted Maple top. Curcio Custom with lower bought and neck heal relief.
    Finish - Hand rubbed Oil/Poly (neck and body)
    Hardware - Hipshot USA
    Electronics - USA CTS pots (passive) V/V/T w/vit Q tone cap.
    Pickups - Custom twin Alnico V built by Mojo Tone

    This is a fairly lightweight bass. If I were to guess, I'd say it barely weighs 9 lbs. I know it's not 10, but I don't have a scale to weigh it. I've played many 4 hour gigs without any issues.

    Please text me @ 520-591-9926 if you would like to chat. I'm flexible on price, but I'm not going to give it away. It cost me more to build it than what I'm selling it for.

    It does have one MINOR blemish in the "neck" pickup route where my router slipped just a slight bit. If I didn't mention it, you would never know, but in the spirit of full disclosure, I wanted to make sure I did.

    Here are some pics.
    Cheers.

    Looking for basses mainly with a "MM" pickup or dual soap bar pickups. Active/passive either or will do. Doesn't have to be an EB bass. Hit me up let me know what you got.

    Cheers.

    O.K. Folks, Here's a Weekend price drop bump for ya.

    $850 Shipped to CONUS
    NO GIG BAG INCLUDED.

    Or I'd be happy to trade for ????
    Must be 5 string.
    Mainly looking for Warwick RockBass $$ or other.
    Would consider Sterling Ray MM5
    Lakland Skyline Series
    Mid to high end Ibanez with Nordys
    Would also consider lower end basses, like Mexican Fender P5, Squire P5, OLP, Lower end Ibanez, Peavey, etc. with some cash on your end.

    So, show me what you got. I can also re-wire it so that the coils are wired in S/P/SC for even more tone control. I'd also be willing to install a pre-amp so that it can be active/passive if you prefer. Just let me know which pre-amp you want and I'll install it for the cost of the pre-amp. If you already have a pre, just send it and I'll install it for free (plus the cost of any pots/parts needed to complete the install)

    Cheers.
    Rob.
