    Greetings!

    Well, I'm about to get finished with one of my projects and thought I'd put it up FS/FT here. Bought this as a backup/project/combo of items and I got what I wanted out of the pile. This one is left, so out she goes!

    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. BUT HERE'S THE KICK -- trussrod is pretty much maxed out. Has a bit more relief than I like, but I think action could prolly be improved by shimming the neck pocket. Certainly playable and if you're not used to playing with a low action, don't think it would be an issue.

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

    Asking $300 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.

    Thanks for looking!

    Price lowered again! $300 SHIPPED CONUS OBO

    C'mon guys...even if you trash the neck, this thing has a bunch of great parts on it. Deluxe active pre, USA Samarium Cobalt Noiseless p/ups, nice clean body, decent bag. More than worth the price of admission.

    Really need to move this piece. Somebody make me an offer. Cash or trade works for me.

    IIRC, I saw in a different thread that you got a hold of a new truss rod for this one & planned on swapping it out.

    Did plans change on that? Or did I just imagine it all? :D

    Nope, you weren't imagining it!

    I replaced the Truss Rod Nut, not the truss rod. Put a washer behind it and lubed it before replacing the nut. Helped a bit, but still not what I personally like to see.

    Might could take the nut back off and put in a sleeve, but I just don't have the time/patience to find or have a sleeve or spacer fabricated.

    OK, gotcha - it turns out I have poor reading skills instead of an overactive immagination! :rollno: :smug:

    Sorry 'bout that - wasn't trying to imply anything there. :)

    Buskman reminded me of my original post, so I"ll add this in as well:

    If anyone is afraid of the neck, then I'll sell it in pieces:

    • Loaded body w/Dunlop Design straplocks (both sides) -- $225 shipped CONUS
    • Tuners and string trees installed on a "Project" neck -- $55 shipped CONUS
    • RoadRunner Gig Bag in Good Condition -- $35 shipped CONUS
    • Neck plate and neck bolts -- FREE to the first buyer of either the body or neck.
    • Used set of TI Jazz Flats for 5-string -- $25.00 shipped CONUS
    Still up for trades of amp trades plus my cash. Might take an Epi T-Bird 5 string too.

    Well, pharaohamps wants the neck, so how about a nice body for cheap?

    Fully loaded for $225 shipped CONUS OBO. And remember, that's with American preamp and American SCN Noiseless p/ups!
