FS: Squier VM Jazz Bass w/upgrades and HSC

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by myke.nytemare, Apr 27, 2009.

  1. I have a Squier Vintage Modified Jazz bass that I purchased late last year. I have only played it at one acoustic gig and it really is in excellent condition.

    The pickguard still has the protective plastic on it and I have upgraded the wiring/shielding. Also included is a Squier-branded hardshell Jazz Bass case (which I believe is a pretty rare find).
    The case is definitely road worn...it has some sticker residue, some corrosion, and two broken hinges. It however is nice on the inside and protects the bass well.

    So, again, here is what you get:

    -Squier VM Jazz Bass which was given a set-up and has no serious playability or manufacturing/construction issues.
    -Completely copper-foiled pickguard & several coats of shielding paint in the routing/cavities (in addition to the factory paint and grounding)
    -"star grounding": no grounding to pots, all grounds to a central point in the control cavity!
    -2 CTS Audio Taper pots (Volume) and 1 CTS Linear Taper pot (Tone), a switchcraft jack and cloth wiring.
    -Fender Control plate and 3 new chrome barrel knobs (set screw type)

    The only issue with the bass is that when I replaced the electronics I used a real Fender Jazz Bass Control Plate and it does not meet up with the pickguard like the original Squier plate did. I have included a picture of that area so you can see what I mean.
    It obviously does not affect playability or any functions of the bass. Just stating it in the interest of full disclosure!

    Bass costs at least $299+tax new (at the moment)without the upgrades and hardshell case! Just looking to get back what I paid for it since I am switching to short scale basses!

    ******I only want $275 which includes shipping in the lower 48 states, the bass with the upgrades and the completely useable hardshell case (which will make sure the bass stays safe in transit)!

    Feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Any interest in a trade if I pay shipping both ways?

    Do you still have the original control plate?
  5. Do not have the original control plate, it was damaged while redrilling it for the bigger CTS pots!

    I am not currently interested in trades since I have too many bills!
  6. Bump for a great playing/sounding primary or backup bass!
