    Here are some before and after pic's of my jazz bass.i bought this from bob and Bernie at the bass palace.Its a 1977 jazz that somebody took a spray paint can to,i brought it to my local luthier who builds and refinishes guitars and heres the finished product.it's redone in nitro and three tone burst.i put basslines antiquity ll's and the j-retro in it.new tort guard and back cover.this has an ash body,up side sounds great.down side it's a little heavy weighing in at 11.5 pounds,but the tone is worth it.just thought i would share it with the forum.And to say there is new life in them old basses.:D

    Thanks for all the compliments.Hey noobai i purchased the car,from sam ash,it came from florida and i was told it was the last one they had.About a week later the website didn't have it listed anymore.Set back 1500.00 with shipping.comes with vintage case from g&g covers not installed(i like this option)cord,leather strap,thumb rest(again not installed),The price was a bit much.But the bass is super as is the quality was great and the bass weighs in at 9.5 pounds.

    Pricy, but a nice find nonetheless.
