    1976 Jazz Bass, my birth year. She sounds great and the playability is awesome. My Geddy Lee gonna stay in case...
    Isn't she pretty with her Badass bridge?

    Nice score (70s jazzes are my favourites), gotta ask though, how much?
     
  3. It cost me approx. $950 which is an unbeatable price in France.

    Dude, that thing looks sooo nice.
     
  7. That is one sweet bass! Love the fretboard.

    Looks as if it is in very good condition.



    Is that the original pick guard though?
     
  8. Can't say for the pickguard but it looks kinda old.
    The bass looks good on that picture but the back has some scratches. One of them is quite serious but it is just the varnish, à la relic style!
    I've just changed the foam under the pups, the old one was like an "oil gum"(if you know what I mean). The pups are great they are surely as old as the bass is. In a few days after a small planishing it will be a player's dream(If you like ol' Jazzes!).

    Did I say I'm happy???:hyper:

    le mojo?

    Nice bass man
     
  11. wow. that is truly awesome. nice find.
     
  12. According to Austin Powers, it's a woman's trap or so(sex appeal..etc...c'mon you know!!!)
    Anyway, there's no real translation... Mojo is "Mojo"in french.... (If we're talking 'bout the same thing).
    And I guarantee this bass has her own feeling....
    Hopefully I'm not married.... what a lucky bast***[SLAP!!! Girlfriend.... ....ouch!!!!!!]I'm...


    Who wants to buy a french Nissan???:D
