Take off those stupid dice knobs and you have a winner.
They spent good money...on getting Heiroglyphic (SP?) Inlays?
We live in a sad, sad world people....
pickups "Like the original"
Doesn't look too bad though, if the price was right (it's almost too much already at $200)
1. (--) Squier
2. (---) home-made inlays (eek)
3. (+) MM pickup
4. (-) what brand?
5. (-) dice knobs
Hmm, sum total is -6, that equals (insert machinery sounds and small explosion) ... $175.
one of the inlays looks like a cupcake...
22 frets isn't "just like the original" ie. the original 60's Jazz bass, either.
looks like a US Fender Jazz Standard from around 88 - 92.
the MM p/up looks like it's been fitted well.
I agree...it's that "boner bass" with the weird extended upper horn.
HAHAH You just reminded me of Ralf Wiggum....
Speaking of Ralph, did anyone see the Simpsons on sunday?
Why does everybody run from me?
He says its a squier Standard Jazz bass when the headstock says fender made in U.S.A .... I'm confused...
If that is really an MIA Fender, he is doing himself a tremendous disservice by calling it a Squier. The bid should be at least double the current price for a used MIA.
that looks totally stupid.
I dunno. What would you pay for that eyesore?
I'll be back later, I'm going to go etch some heiroglyphs into my car with a key.
I dunno, it's not that bad. I like the idea. The dice knobs and the surf green don't fit the Egyptian motif very well. Maybe if it were a honey blonde, or natural finish, with a black pickguard, etched with glyphs, then it would be cool.
It could be worse.
Those aren't really inlays. Description says:
(they were carved in by previous owner)
Some people shouldn't be allowed to own a Dremel.
oh yeah, rich coming from a man with a 67 string octoneck bass
This is what happens when children are allowed to play with sharp objects........
I know. That's what makes me mad, or even sad. I can't even afford the bass that I want (I'm not sure I could afford the dremel tool, either), and this idiot has to go and deface a nice MIA Jazz. Maybe I should bid on it, then smack the former owner updise the head with it.
If anyone else feels the need to "customize" a good bass like this, give it to someone who'd appreciate it first before you ruin it.
the carvings are cool, but the colour of the bass is terrible.. if it were black with a black pickguard i'd like it a lot more.
it looks like it may sounds good, but good god! it reminds me of the Luxor here in vegas! all it needs is a beam of light shooting out of the headstock blinding airplanes!
