    Yeah man, I've played a few of these (VF5 PJ); this one is a standout (tone and neck carve) for sure!

    This is an extremely intriguing bass.

    Your original post doesn't specify if the Jazz pickup is in the 70s or 60s position, but it definitely looks like 60s, which is a perfect match for the rosewood fingerboard and bent plate bridge.

    Ash has a stronger bottom and crisper highs, but it is scooped out in the mids.

    Alder has a lower midrange and is less brittle up high, so it sounds sweet, but its low end is weaker.

    This bass, having an ash core and alder wings, together with the rosewood finger board and the 60s-placed Aguilar J and the P pickup makes me super curious. I'm dying to know how this bass sounds.

    In my mind it could be a perfect 60s sounding P bass with that pickup soloed, and it could have a perfect, full Jaco bridge tone with the J pickup soloed... and I can only imagine how the bass sounds blended!

    And it's not just the sound that intrigues me. I'm sitting here imagining how that white will age as well.

    What a WONDERFUL vintage bass this would be to own.

    International shipping is not a problem, as this bass is CITES certified. Anyone sincerely interested is welcome to PM for a quote.

    Very nice indeed! I have three F Basses at the moment. This would be lovely to have but I'd have to move one of the others. I'd love to add a PJ to my BN AC and VF J bass. Good thing it's not Daphne Blue or I'd be going into debt again real fast. :) But this colour combination is an all time favourite. BY the way I looked on Reverb and could not see the bass. Maybe it's because I'm in Canada.

    I updated my post referencing the listing on Reverb to include a hyperlink. It'll bring you right to it, if clicked; being in Canada is not a limiter. :thumbsup:

    Price drop to $3,500 shipped/insured - don't miss out, as it's my bottom line.
