    Really amazing custom jazz 5 here. Made for me by DeMarino Guitars. DeMarino was John Lennon's personal guitar tech back in the day. It's really well made. Hand carved bone nut. Nordstrand single coil pickups. Gotoh tuners & bridge. Cool q parts knobs. Alder body. Maple neck with strengthening woods and lined fretless rosewood board. Cavity is shielded. Comes with Roto nylon strings or new DR strings. Feel free to ask any questions and I'll try and get right back to you. Bass has an Atelier Z and Pensa vibe. Really easy to play and rock solid. Action set super low and no buzzing or anything. Perfect sounding and playing bass. A few scuffs in paint but nothing major. Skinny chrome pickup cover not included; now has full sized cover. Only selling because of recent purchase. Whoever buys this bass will be VERY happy. $1275 (price drop to $999) shipped via PayPal. Will ship insured in a Fender gig bag. Thanks for looking!!

    Hi guys! It's 10.5 on my bathroom scale. Feels about 10 lbs to me. Balances really well. Thanks!

    Hi there! Will get nut width when I get in later. I can tell you that the spacing is set wide. The Gotoh bridge allows for any width/string spacing you like however. Will get you measurements in a few.

    2 1/8" at nut. String width adjustable at bridge. Thin neck profile too...

    Some cool trade offers on this one. Still haven't found what I'm looking for, however. Would trade for certain Stingrays or vintage basses. Let me know what you have; I'm somewhat open...

    Nice bass. You should change your thread to state 5-string. It might help with your sale. Since I play 5-string only, I search the classifieds by filtering by the number of strings...

    GLWTS!

    Truly a shame what happened to DeMarino. Jailed for tax evasion...great shop, good people.
