    for sale is one gently used custom built parts jazz bass. had this bass made for me by a builder some 3 years ago after meticulously selecting the components, but for some reason i never loved it the way i thought i would, so i've finally decided to part with it. my asking price is WELL below what i paid for it.

    it's a fairly heavy (haven't weighed, but i'll assume its 10+ lbs.) jazz and i'm not the burliest of bassists, so it was a bit uncomfortable for long sets. also the neck profile seems like its probably the vintage "C" shape instead of the "oval" that my hands prefer. at least that what my paws tell me... no major wear, the worst is some small nicks on the top of the head stock.


    asking $350 SHIPPED to the lower 48.

    money orders or paypal preferred.


    the stats:
    -mighty mite jazz body, black (seems thicker than newer jazzies, likely contributes to the additional weight)
    -mighty mite jazz bass neck, maple/maple w/ bone nut. (again seems to be a vintage C profile neck)
    -chrome badass II bridge
    -fender custom shop jazz pickups
    -b/w/b three ply pickguard
    -chrome thumbrest
    -chrome control plate w/ black knobs
    -chrome tuners & strap buttons
    -stainless steel screws
    -passive electronics
