FS/FT: Fender MIM Jazz Deluxe 5 with upgrades

    Well, I'm about to get finished with one of my projects and thought I'd put it up FS/FT here.

    It's a MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe 5. Candy Apple Red, tort guard, rosewood board. Upgrades include: Fender SCN pickups from a Victor Bailey, and full shielding paint job. Strung with TI Jazz Flats.

    Bass is in Good Condition overall. A few swirls, nicks, and dings -- it's not prisitine -- but it's not beat up either. Only really significant scratches are a few back by the electronics cover on the back (kids, workbenches, and wood don't mix:rollno:). Few dings on the headstock as well.

    Comes with a decent gigbag or a beater hardcase -- your choice.

    Asking $335 shipped CONUS. Just as soon trade for a used head. Something in the same price range, like a Carvin B800/B1500, GK 700/800/1001, SWR Bass 350/SM400S, Ampeg B2R...you get the idea. Plus/minus cash as required.

    Pix should be up later today or tomorrow.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hmmm...I really like Acme cabs, but I'm cab-heavy at this point. AAMOF, I've got at least one I'll likely be selling and have actually already shopped it around privately.

    Thanks for the offer, though!

    Sorry, I really don't play 4-strings any more. Out of all my basses, I'm down to two 4's -- an Azola original BugBass EUB and my '69 P-Bass. And neither see any play time at all.

    Thanks for the interest!

    Okay, so I've got this one back together.

    The shielding paint (two coats) did a pretty good job, so it's much quieter than it was.

    Strung up with TI Jazz Flats -- smooth!

    Pickguard goes on tonight and I'll get final pix up.

    Still just as interested in trades as outright sale. Still asking only $335 shipped CONUS, but that is pretty much my bottom dollar, so no low-balls please. Gigbag on the way from a TBer, and I'll add pix when it gets here.

    If it doesn't leave from here pretty quick, I'll send it back to eBay.

    Yet still no pictures... "If it doesn't leave from here pretty quick, I'll send it back to eBay."

    I just can never understand how people expect to motivate a buyer to make a purchase with no photo's of what the person will be buying...

    Apologies to all who saw my original post in this space, and especially to stflbn. Sorry if I over reacted.

    I understand your question, and I probably agree, at least in theory. However, I paid my $20 and I can post whatever I wish, as long as I stay within the rules.
