    I'm relisting the basses I'm selling individually so as to cut down on the inter-thread confusion.

    1991/92 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass – my main bass for over ten years. This is the 'longhorn' model with the slightly different body style and a 22 fret neck.
    -Badass II bridge (professionally installed)
    -DiMarzio Ultra Jazz pickups
    -Hipshot D-Tuner
    -Black pickguard from WD music. Original white pickguard will be included.
    - There a couple of dings in the “Midnight Blue” finish. The fretboard is in great shape, with only one spot on the “G” up around the 15th fret where I think a fret needs to be leveled.
    Asking $525 shipped to the lower 48 in the original hardcase.

    So I'm kind of balking at putting this one up on the 'bay just yet. Any interest? Anyone?

    Thanks,

    I've very pleased with them. To my ears they retain a lot of the single coil tonality but without the hum, which has been a real boon in the studios where I've recorded with it.

    I also thought the stock pickups were a little weak sounding and these, in comparison, are nice and full.

    Hope that helps,
    J.

    Nothing makes up for those holiday towels your in-laws bought you like a Jazz Bass.
