    I don't know for sure, but the string alignment looks WAAAAAY off.

    I've looked at it several times and it still seems way off. Notice the saddles are forced down. In the photo looking down the neck you can see the alignment is off at the bridge pickup. I'd stay away.

    Thought I had a local deal on an Affinity V with a TB'er, then they must have gotten a better offer and backed out last minute. So, I then found a deal on a MIA Std. Jazz V I couldn't refuse.....so I'm happy.....now I gotta decide whether to mod the MIM or MIA......

    Hello guys, I am the owner of the white alpine bass you were speaking of. Got it
    off the bay and ready to modify. ; )

    First I must say that I purchase these copies to see well the
    structure build is and then modify it with better electronics, etc.

    Yes the strings were off line and thisis due to the bridge and the
    bridge pickup was not to the right dimension. In other words, a
    through together and sell. This guitar was made for 18mm string
    spacing bridge and can go up to a 19mm. The bridge humbucker
    pu was way to narrow for this bridge and thats what you noticed
    in the photo. Im replacing the bridge with the correct spacing, totally
    replacing the neck and bridge pu with better quality ones. Gutting
    out the passive electronics and putting in an a/p 3 band preamp.
    Totally converting to the same spec as a Fender Jazz V. Should be
    complete in about a month. Good quality build comes from being
    patient. Overall this axe is sturdy and well built and that is the main
    reason why I'm going ahead and modify it.

    PS/ Don't worry, I'll keep you posted

    Can you tell me what the width of the neck at the nut is? Is it narrow like a 1.75 or wide like a Pbass ?
