    Fender Jazz up for sale...

    Neck: Fender Roadworn Jazz and feels incredible.

    Body: Fender Geddy Lee refinished by Chris Bavaria with a thin coat of nitro.

    Tuners: 1960's Fender style custom Hipshot "Lollipop" tuners.

    Control Plate: USA Lakland Jo Osbourn

    Pickups: Fender 1977 Jazz bridge and the neck pickup is a custom wound Lindy Fralin Single coil.
    The interesting part of the pickups is that when I sent them to Fralin shop I was talking to their chief rewinder Tom Brantley and he told me that he was currently rewinding pickups for Geddy Lee and his "#1" Jazz bass. With a little discussion I asked him to wind these pickups to the exact same specs as he was doing for Geddy.

    Bridge: Fender standard bent plate

    I have a Sadowsky Tort pick guard for it but have not put it on yet but will come with the bass.

    Strings are Sadowsky Blue Steel 45-105

    $800 plus shipping

    Thanks Tim.

    Yeah, I've always loved the lollipop tuners and were a bit of a custom job by Hipshot to be a perfect fit for the roadworn neck.

    This is a great bass but only looking to sell to help with a trip that I will be on until early November so I'm hoping to make a deal within the next few days.

    Please let me know if anyone might have any questions.
