I got this bass a few months back from RS - it's honestly one of if not the best sounding and playing jazz basses I've ever played, but it can't replace a couple of other basses of mine for sentimental value. This is a Fender 70s Jazz, Made in Mexico, with the following upgrades: 1. Stock preamp replaced by Audere direct-replacement pre 2. Stock pickups replaced by Nordstrand NS4Js 3. Stock pickguard replaced by 3-ply tort guard 4. No case replaced by Sadowsky-esque soft-hard case - all the protection at a fraction of the weight and discomfort Price is $700 shipped CONUS as it was when I picked it up a few months back.
