    I have an SJB-62 fretless, LPB with matching headstock, and I'd rather have a fretted. So pretty much any Essex four-stringer would be cool, or maybe some other low-end bass.

    If you just want to trade necks, that's cool too, but this neck has the LPB headstock, so keep that in mind.
     
  2. pics? i have an spb sunburst I might be willing to trade if you don't might switching from jazz to p.

    edit: pics

    2nd edit: I just noticed that in the pics the knobs are off, and there are some weird metal things sticking out. The pots have been replaced since then and the original knobs put back on so it looks stock now.

    Sounds like a strong possibility to me. I don't have any current pics of mine, but I can snap some and post them maybe tonite or tomorrow. I just checked the Rondo website and they don't have a pic of this on there anymore, so I can't link you there. Guess I'll have to get busy.

    The pg is off, and pups are out because I tried a couple of other pups in it. Obviously I'll reassemble it before I make a trade. :)

    Weird. They show up for me, but who knows. Anyway, can you e-mail me, so I can attach them to my reply?

    Thanks.
     
  7. hm...maybe not...I don't like what you've done to the body of the bass. I suppose the pg would cover it up, but I also dont really like the color. Sorry.

    I haven't actually done anything to the body of the bass. This is what they look like.

    But if you don't like it, you don't like it. No problem

    So, anyone else?

    I have a SX neck (rosewood board) that came on a LPB Precision copy. 2.5" neck heel.

    Interested in a trade?

    OK then. Haven't heard anything from Mazinger, so I guess I'm still looking for trades. I would trade my neck for a fretted neck, my bass for a fretted bass, or whatever.

    Doesn't have to be an Essex, doesn't have to be Jazz-Style. A Squier Bronco would be fine, one of the short-scale Essexes would be fine, just hit me with what you've got, and we'll see.

    Thanks to all.
