    FOR SALE:

    A beautiful custom Fender parts bass build comprised of parts bought from TalkBass members, Best Bass Gear, Warmoth, and evilBay. I put this bass together and it sounds amazing, Bass weighs 10.2 lbs on bathtoom scale, but with the lightweight Warmoth neck and Hipshot Ultralite Tuners there's no neck dive. Bass plays like a dream and the Delano / John East combo really shines with lots of tonal variations. Has a beautiful Warmoth Jazz neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard, 6105 frets, Fender Waterslide Decal under 3 coats of nitro. Body is a soft maple Vintage Modifed Squier/Fender.

    FULL DISCLOSURE:

    Bass parts were bought some new and some used so there are light & normal signs of wear but nothing major. Rear of neck has a couple of slight indentations from leaning against amp cab. I bought it this way from another TB member. Also one very light scratch on fretboard between 3rd and 5th fret (See pics for reference). Only other notable thing is the Active/Passive selector switch on the John East has a scratching sound at times when switch flipped but not while playing. I'm not an electrical guy but assume it's ground. Never bothered me and doesn't affect playability. Neck has a Fender waterslide decal under 3 coats of Nitro finish which is starting to take on a nice amber hue. Finish work was done by previous owner. It's not perfect but does look really nice. Warmoth pickguard slightly tight against John East preamp and has slight indentation but hardly noticable. Underneath pickguard I dowelled and sanded the original pickguard holes and redrilled for proper fit of the Warmoth pickguard. Not noticable unless pickguard removed. I used hardwood dowel and glue. Could use a good setup and intonantion. The things listed above are done so in the spirit of full disclosure and not all used basses are "perfect". Bag End cabinet in several of the pictures is NOT for sale.

    Bass Built With Following Parts: (See Below)

    Fender Squier Vintage Modified Soft Maple Body
    Warmoth Jazz neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard, 6105 frets, Fender Waterslide Decal

    Dunlop Strap Locks Pins

    $750 + $50 SHIPPED (IN SOFT GIG BAG)

    CONUS – LOWER 48 ONLY. INSURED WITH SIGNATURE REQUIRED
    NOT INTERESTED IN TRADES
    NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
    PAYPAL OK
    BASS LOCATED IN BURBANK, CA 91505
    LOCAL PICKUP AVAILABLE.


    IF BASS DOES NOT SELL IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME I WILL CONSIDER PARTING OUT AT THAT TIME. SAVE YOURSELF SOME $$$ AND BUY IT COMPLETE AS IF YOU ADD UP THE AVERAGE USED TALKBASS PRICES MY COMPLETE PRICE IS A GOOD DEAL.

    Feel free to ask questions but note I won't respond to trade requests or part out requests by PM. Also a disturbing trend on TB is people giving others a hard time about pricing. I report these issues to moderators immediatley regardless of your feedback rating. I'm entitled to ask a fair market used price for my gear as I paid a fair market price for my gear.

    Thanks for Looking.

    Very nice. Much like the other jazz you sold me. I thought you had the delano/ john east in your 78 and loved it that way?
