    Here is an MIM J-bass I picked up locally on CL. Spent several hours cleaning her up and performing a good thorough set-up, including leveling all high frets (there was one or two that were slightly high...), dressing and polishing the frets, set relief and action to Fender specs, intonate the bridge, and oiling the fretboard with Music Nomad F-1 oil, which is really great stuff. All natural, no lemon oil, no other harsh chemicals. I disassembled the bridge and cleaned and lubed it (W-D 40 to the screws to clean them up a little). I also cleaned the body with Music Nomad cleaner/wax combo spray-on cleaner. So this bass is ready to walk out your door and on to your next gig, rehearsal, jam session, or recording session. In fact, while I wait for a buyer, I might gig it myself!

    More photos on Flickr, link below. Here are a few pics to give you the idea. Comes with a Road Runner molded plastic hard case which was bought new at GC 2 months ago and looks fabulous. I wiped it down with Armor All so it looks super spiffy! The RR case is really a nice hard case, I was surprised that this new model from RR is so nice.

    The bass was previously owned by a guy my age (40's) and he took excellent care of it. The body is flawless. I spent a long time trying to find flaws. None. The neck has a nick in it by the E-string side of the nut. Pics of that too. A few other stray and very small nicks in headstock, also pictured in close-up on my link to Flickr. Otherwise it is super clean and plays great. I put a brand new set of medium light Sunbeams on her. I have been having fun playing this bass!

    Also comes with a very clean set of Hennesey strap locks, as well as the truss wrench and string height hex wrench that come with these basses. Included as well is your choice of standard pick guard, brand new tortoise shell, or as-new white pearloid.

    $450 local sale with the hard case. $400 with a Fender gig bag. I will ship to the CONUS if the buyer pays for shipping. I always end up paying a lot for shipping every time I do it. I would guess this package would cost $100-150 UPS if they pack it. I could also get a bicycle box from the bike store across the street from my local Fed Ex store, pack it up myself and get an estimate on shipping from Fed Ex using that box, for anyone out there who is a serious buyer.

    Not that I need to tell the TB crowd, but to buy all of this together new would be about $725. So even if you pay $550 shipped, its a really good deal. IMHO, of course.

    Just posted better pics of the headstock, and the offer for a lower sale price if buyer chooses Fender gig bag over the RR hard case.
