    OLD HEADSTOCK Essex (SX) Jazz style 4-string in what I believe is vintage white, with rosewood board, tortoise guard and both pickup covers. Purchased new from Rondo in late 2005. Excellent cosmetic and playing condition. No noticeable dents or dings other than a tiny straight scratch (or maybe white paint) on the edge of the headstock, which you can see in the closeup photo.

    Currently strung with Chromes. Can also throw on some old TI Jazz flats if you prefer. Also, I have the "thumbrest" as well, but one screw is missing.

    PHOTOS HERE

    Looking to trade for a cheap short scale (SX, Squier, other???). Or if you prefer to buy, $100 plus shipping.

    Local pickup available if you're in the Chicago area.

    I've been a member here for only a few months and have not engaged in any transactions here before. However, I've done quite a bit of business buying and selling photo gear on RFF (photography is my other passion!) and I'm sure I can get some of the folks over there to vouch for me if you have any concerns.

    Thanks for looking!

    I'm in Chicago area and for $100 bucks I'm just tempted to snap it but then it will sit unused forever. I'll let somebody else enjoy the deal, but be quick otherwise I'll change my mind :D

    Thanks for the feedback. Glad it's priced fairly. I wasn't sure exactly where to come in at. I figure if you can buy a brand new one like
    this for $125, I'd be nuts to ask any more. But it does seem like the older headstocks are coveted around here.

    Well, I never anticipated this much interest so fast!

    Looks like I have a local buyer lined up, but if things fall through I will let everyone know.
