    Fender Road Worn Jazz in Fiesta Red shipped in a (well used)Deluxe gig bag...
    Bass sounds and plays great... Without weighing I would guess 8-8.5...Very light...
    Here's why the price is so low :ninja:
    Complete disclosure- If you like medium/low or higher action this is the bass for you but if you require super low action then forget it as I have not been able to achieve without buzzing... I took it to my tech and he even put a collet under the nut which helped to get a little more turn out of the truss rod and now the neck is nice and flat from the 1st to twelfth fret but there is a small bump on the last few frets that still prevents me from "super" low action... He thinks I'm being overly critical but I am what I am...
    Again, the bass is currently set up for what I would consider "average"low action this won't be a problem for most and the truss works fine...
    Maybe sanding the last few frets further will correct this but I'm moving on... Looking for a Geddy bass :)
    I'm located just outside of Charlotte,NC if anyone would like to give it a test drive!
    $675 shipped and insured to lower 48th!!!

    Thanks for the kind words, guys... This really is a nice,great sounding bass and I'm sure that I have prolly over-emphasized it's shortcomings but I just want to share as best I can...
    Fact of the matter is this bass prolly plays better than most hanging up in your local Guitar Center anyway...
    Hope these pics help... 17th fret and up is where I get the buzz when I set the action really low...
    Thanks ;)

  11. So your tech didn't think a fret level was in order? Just curious.

    Fret level the same as a fall away fret dress?
    This is what was done... I think my tech is pretty darn good and that he has done a good job but I like very low action and I don't feel like I am going to be satisfied with it as is...
    I am no guitar guru but I have had others play it and they thought it felt just fine...
