Ha, yeah it is. I actually put it there as it needed a thin shim to setup properly. Good eye!
Previous owner sanded the entire back of the neck (including the CIJ or MIJ and serial). I don't think it was stolen because of the whole neck being sanded (hoping not anyway).
Hell no, leaving her as is. The most I may do is try to get some of the sticker residue off of the back (only a couple of small spots feel a little sticky). Aside from that, the mojo will stay! ;-)
LOL, I wish. I got it for cheap, however, not nearly that cheap.
The only thing that bugs me is the fingerboard finish bubbles.
You're clearly not going to tell us how much or else you already would have. My over under for that would probably have been $450. I might have been able to talk myself out of it above that price but not at or below.
It's very cool, the mojo is not a problem at all as long as it holds tune and the neck works like it should. Congrats.
How does that even happen???
I love it when I get to live vicariously through others. Cuz this sure never happens to me.
Yeah, me too. 1 of the reasons I dont like Maple fretboards. I know they wear the finish off, & leave that dirty board look, but I didnt know they blister! I wonder if its wise to just sand the finish off, not a deal breaker but It would make me seriously reconsider buying. Nice find regardless! GL!!
Great score, she's beautiful @Quadzilla !
This happened likely because of the different expansion/contraction rates for the wood and the black plastic/epoxy/whatever inlays.
Those areas are also really easy to touch up with some super glue if one were concerned about them spreading.
WOW what a deal/steal!
Hey if you dont want it you can give it me...lol
I'm sure Geddy would be proud to see one of his signature basses get that much use.
Beautiful, well loved and well played.
Until I saw the neck stamp, I thought maybe you had one of Justin Meldal-Johnsen's Geddys that he bought for a Nine Inch Nails tour in 2008. Yes, whoever bought that wasn't concerned too much about beating it up. But that's OK as long as it works. Nice score!
That there is a thing of beauty to me. Old, worn, but still fully capable of it's intended mission; that's exactly the way a bass from that time period should look! Not totally trashed, but there wasn't any holding back, either. It will live on. I'm starting to admire that kind of thing more and more as the years go by! And only a C note??? Geez...
I had one just like that, model J's and all. Nice basses with an uber thin fast neck.
Made to be played. Maybe take care of the nut but it looks ready to go.
that's how i got my cirrus...
You are right in the zone of what I paid for it. Given that's in poor cosmetic condition (but "A" level playing condition), I think it was a fair deal. It literally plays as good as some of my basses that cost thousands...
