I want this "relic"
ha ha, was it actually used that much. Or did someon by a MIM and mess it up so they could sell it as a relic?
I find it funny about people "relicing" a bass, they relick it in all sorts of places that don't so much indicate wear, as someone with a rouge power sander.
I never got the relic thing. Especially if it comes from the factory that way. You're paying a lot of extra money for some one to strip half the paint off.
The relic thing looks really stupid to me, too. But the only relic bass I've ever played is an awesome bass. The Jaco sig has the best neck I have played on, ever. It's not worth the price, but if I could borrow one whenever I had a gig or session I would use it.
I wish the 'plainer' Jaco sig, the un-relic model, felt like the relic. Or, barring that, I wish I could buy just a neck that they had done whatever they did to the relic neck to.
Do i see blue paint on the back? Was it refinished red?
I'd hit it as long as the price stays low....really low.
No belt buckle marks? No weathered pickguard? No previous holes/routes of modification?
Bad relic job.
