Feeler for trades on my '98 Fender Custom Shop Jazz Relic...or sale for $2,600.00 In the late 90's, Fender had yet to start to relic guitars and basses in their own custom shop. Instead, they outsourced the aging work to a man named Vince Cunetto. A few years after Cunetto began relicing for Fender, they opted to go "in house." There are many articles about Cunetto's work. His work with the Fender Custom Shop was limited to the late 90's, and most involved guitars. He did a limited number of basses - and this is one of them. As a result, these relics tend to increase in value and are becoming quite collectible. As to the build, one of the Master Builders in the Custom Shop is a man named John Cruz. You can find his bio information on the Custom Shop site. Photo of the neck with Custom Shop stamp and his name is attached. It's a really cool bass. Matching head stock. Killer tone. Neck plays incredibly well. Purchased from fellow TBr, who had active pickups put in. I had my local luthier install a set of passive custom shop pickups to get things back into original shape.
