    Up for sale my beloved Jazz bass, it started life as a regular Squier Deluxe V Jazz, i replaced Everything besides the neck and the body.
    here is a list of the new parts added:
    Hipshot Deluxe Tuners
    Hipshot String Retainer
    Leo Quan Badass V Bridge
    Nordstrand Big Singles Pickups
    Countersunk strap locks

    The headstock has been sanded and painted flat black, the body has been sanded and treated to a satin finish (not perfect) but looks cool
    by no means the bass is perfect, but that reflects on the price, the hardware alone costs more than $450. shipping to the lower 48 is included in the price.
    if it doesnt sell as is, i will part it out
    let me know if you have any questions!

    Do you have a certificate of authenticity that Darth Vader did the modifications on this bass?

    What's the weight like and are there any electronics included, or is it wired straight to the jack?

    the bass is on the lighter side, i will get you the exact weight tonight, there are no electronics included and it is currently not wired, you would need either a preamp that includes a jack or just a jack to wire it straight, i ill add some pictures later showing the empty electronics cavity

    Ok, before someone digs up the pic of Darth Vadar that’s floating around the internet and posts it, let’s not and say we did - ‘course now, I’ve probably indirectly directed it to happen...

    Thanks. Looks like a cool project, plenty of options to wire it up active or passive.
