This started out a beat up midnight wine jazz bass. I hated the color, so I decided to sand the whole thing down by hand. I ended up staining it a dark brown and then sprayed it with satin poly. It turned out much better than I thought it would. Please note, I do not claim to be a professional and this was my first time messing with anything like this. The front came out pretty nice. For some reason, the back is a bit more spotty and looks like a tree trunk to me. The finish is pretty smooth throughout though. There are a couple drip spots, because I never sanded the final application of poly. The truss nut was stripped on the neck, so I decided to replace it. The new neck is an allparts I picked up with a 70's logo on it. The pickups are seymour duncan basslines, but I'm not sure which model. They sold me on duncan pickups though. Also has a basslines preamp in a routed spot under the pickguard, as well as a 9 volt battery. The controls are vol with slap pull, blend, bass treble stack, and mid. The bridge is a badass II. Plays great and has low action. It feels quite light, probably lighter than any of my jazz basses. I believe the marks on the pickguard are because I haven't taken the plastic off it yet. The pickguard could use a little sanding with the dremel, as it slightly hangs over the control plate I can get some more pics up later. I just wanted to see if anyone was interested up front. I am really just trying to thin the herd, so if it doesn't sell, I won't be terribly hurt. Looking for $413 shipped CONUS.
