    Going to be a lot of text here, so please bear with me.

    tldr - Fender MIA body (no PUs/harness) for $210 shipped/insured CONUS. Schaler strap lock pins are installed. I will include the neckplate/screws, guard, bridge, and control plate if you need it.

    PUs/Harness going elsewhere
    I am going to throw the PUs and harness on fleabay as a unit (I don't think anyone here wants them anyway).

    NECK SOLD I want to sell the body before I sell the neck, so if you want the neck post here or PM me. If you want the body without PUs, send me an offer in PM please. There is a small bubble under the finish on the 4th string 3rd fret. I tried to take the best picture of it I could. This is one of the nicest necks I've played, especially in the Jazz Bass profile.

    I bought this bass in '07 as a MIM bass, but once I got it I took it to my local shop. They told me it was a Frankenstein with a MIA body (rare color, and through body Fender high-mass bridge), and a Fender MIM Deluxe Series Neck. The color is Ocean Turquoise not Lake Placid Blue. The neck has a working truss rod, and I've always had a music shop do my setups, I ask them about how the neck is (straight/working etc) and they always tell me it's great. There is a scratch on the back that I have taken pictures of, it is barely noticeable in pictures. There are extra holes drilled for a thumb rest, and ashtrays. When I got it, it had all of the '62 hardware on it, including the double stack knobs. The wiring job was bad (tone did not work), and the pickups were junk so I had a shop replace the pickups, and I later changed the harness myself.

    This entire instrument has been in a moulded hard case in a smoke free home for the past 11 years.

    So when I did some research myself after being more active at TB, I think they released that color in like 98, and possibly ran it a little later.

    Amateur. Take my advice for its resale value.
    Yep. My first guitar was that color, and that had to be sometime around 2000ish...

    Going to list this as the body with PUs and the harness removed. I will try to sell them elsewhere to get the price lower.
