MIM Body w/ MIJ Neck - $475 shipped (conus) I purchased this bass on eBay about 2 weeks ago as a Mint condition mid-90s MIJ bass with a brand new Badass II bridge and a brand new set of Seymour Duncan 1/4 pounders. After checking the bass out for playability and such, I left the seller positive feedback (I'm a nice guy and like to do so quickly). I then proceeded to remove the pickguard to install the brand new tort. guard that I had purchased and noticed that there was a HUGE route from the pickup to the control cavity (indicating that it was a MIM body). I contacted the seller, and indeed this is a brand new (probably a year or 2 old NOS MIM body) that he assembled with an older MIJ (verified that it is 92-93) neck that he bought off eBay. He then told me to deal with it, that I had gotten a good deal anyway. He mentioned in his emails to me that all of the work was done by a professional luthier, but take that for what its worth. I will NOT be keeping this bass, not because it isn't good, but because I am completely sour to it, due to the lying seller who is now no longer responding to my emails. I would love to sell it completely (as I am listing it here), but I will probably part it out (if it doesn't move quickly) after I give up on the PayPal dispute. I am sure that the seller is not going to refund my money, and has probably cleared out his account, so there will be nothing left for me. All that being said, this is a great playing , looking and sounding bass as it currently is. I took the bass apart and ensured that the neck (which was slightly shaved to fit in the neck pocket) is seated properly (its not a perfect pocket fit, but very good), and it will be a great player for someone. The pickups and bridge are as he stated, so those are very good, and again what could be considered mint. I would assume that the pots and tuners are MIM, because I am guessing (only a guess) that what he actually did was take a new MIM and swap out some new parts to make this bass. I am including the original white pickguard that is shown as well as my brand new tort. pickguard that I purchased. I also have a black pickguard that you may have INSTEAD of the tort if that's what you prefer. The pictures are from the original listing, as the bass is all boxed up ready to ship, if you HAVE to have a more detailed image, I can provide them with a little bit of time. The bass is all packed up in anticipation of the seller actually following through with the Paypal refund, but that's already been 2 weeks, so its not likely. If the bass sells here, I plan to contact him and let him know that I am dropping this, so there's no chance that I am going to pull this listing because of something that happens on his end. I know that I am not going to get my money back, I am just trying to get what I think is a fair price for the bass in its current state. Feel free to make me an offer, I can always say no, I will also consider trades, but I'd rather have the cash. Thanks for looking, feel free to PM me for more info. - If you are interested in any of the parts on this bass let me know. I am most likely to sell off the neck, tuners, bridge and pickups and then build this out as a beater.
