    So based on my last sale/trade, and the fact that I've got no feedback, I want to give you guys all of the information I can about this bass.

    First, pictures:

    It's a 1978 Fender Jazz Bass in White and there are several important things you should know about it:

    -This thing is a beast, I have to weigh it but I'd guess it's 11 plus lbs.
    -The neck and set up on this instrument are very good, and if you like late 70's Jazz basses, this is a good one (despite the weight.)
    -The electronics are NOT all original, but this bass does have super-old seymour duncan quarter pounders (possibly super stacks) superin burgundy. (I think Duncans only came with burgundy covers in their early years, somebody can correct that.) The pick-up sound might be the reason I've kept this thing as long as I have, they really are that cool sounding.
    -There is a route under the pickguard (pictured.)
    -The bridge has been replaced with a Badass II (pictured.)
    -It comes with the original hardshell case.
    -I don't have the original pickups or bridge.
    -Last but not least: This is a players instrument, not a collector piece. I don't want anyone to think that I'm trying to misrepresent this as something more than it is.

    I think that it's a super cool instrument, but I'm jonesing for other stuff.

    I would like $1400 (OBO) shipped for it or:

    -A Roscoe Beck IV
    -A Mid to Late 90's Fender Bass (American or deluxe) (plus cash)
    -A Carvin Bromberg 4 string
    -An Epi Jack Casady (plus cash)
    -A six string with 18mm + spacing
    -Any combination of basses and cash for a person that wants this bass.

    You can either PM me or email me at (which is preferable.)

    I'm in Chicago if you'd like to check it out in person. I'd really like to do a local deal, if at all possible.

    Man... That is so cool. Is it really that yellowed or is it the lighting in the picture?
