    For sale today we have a fantastic MIM Jazz fiver from 1998. She came to me with the original Suhr pups wired passive. I decided to install a brand new Nordy 2b 4c pre with passive tone to bring this bass back to its full potential. Deep full lows, or barking mid range growl, she does it. Very good condition for a 98 with light scratches and hardly any fret ware. The back of the neck is silky smooth with no dings or damage. Lots of bass here for the money and comes shipped to you in an Igig 515 bag. Bag has been used and has slight fraying, see pics. She's wearing a brand new set of D'Addario Nickels and she weighs under 10lbs.

    Lots of PM's on trades.

    The only thing I would be interested in at the moment is a G&L LB 100 or a SB 1. Maybe the right EBMM 5

    Mostly interested in a cash (payPal) sale.

    Thanks for all of the interest so far.

    I wish the necks on the MIM's were the same dimension as a MIA deluxe.

    How is the b string?
    How is the action consistency from lower to higher frets ??

    This is the first MIM that I've had, It's as good as any American fender that I've owned. The B is solid, and she plays great all the way up the neck. No fretting out or any other weirdness, truss rod works as it should as well.

    If this bass had any issues I would have never spent all that cabbage buying the Nordy pre and having it installed. I'm just bass heavy right now.

    is it me or the MIM body shape looks more vintage-y (less high register cut off on treble side) than the MIA of the same era? if that's the case, that a cool thing

    This is a fantastic bass. I know because I used to own it! She served me well, used her on countless gigs with great results! The Suhr pickups sound great and I recently had the chance to play the bass with the NORDY preamp...OH MAN! This thing is sounding better than ever!
