    If your looking for a fresh "off the wall" bass, you might wanna skip this one. This thing has been played...hard. Lots of bracelet rash mixed with sweat, a hint of Yager with a side of cymbal collisions and Some mic stand bumps. It's got mojo. The neck is flawless and sounds amazing with the passive fralins. The back lindy didn't quite match the screw hole area so had to buzz off (just the screws area) to fit. The magnets are dead on though.I Bought in 2008?? I know it's beat up but really loved and kept in its case. If you don't mind the finish, your getting a great deal at....

    $900 usd delivered in the states.

    Heres a close up of the pickup since some peeps are asking. It's not the best route job but makes the pickup fit. The poles are spot on and sound amazing. The place on the PU where your thumb would sit is filled down to a pleasant rounded area, more comfy than the pointy edge it had.

    Is that rear pickup problem simply an issue of being the wrong size, i.e. a neck model P/U instead of a bridge model P/U?

    It's the Lindy Fralin jazz 5 bridge PU. Problem is its not the "fender jazz 5 standard exact replacement" ...I screwed up ordering it and was too impatient to send it back. The only thing that does not match is the plastic. The poles are the same. So yes, it's the correct position as is the neck PU, it just needed some buzzing to make it fit, the front PU is in the PG so didn't matter.
