Well, thanks to the new Essex, I'm just not playing on my Jazz anymore. It's a Black 1996 Mexican Jazz Bass with Rosewood Fretboard, with the pickups changed to Seymour Duncan Basslines pickups, the pickguard has been changed to a gorgeous pearloid pickguard, the bridge was swapped with a professionally installed G&L bridge, and even the knobs were changed to what I believe are the American Fender Knobs. The only ding or dent that I know of and is even somewhat noticable is on the neck, about the 2nd fret. The bass tipped over (thank YOU $7 guitar stand) and caught the end of a bed. Nothing all too bad, honestly. The coating of the neck was taken off in that spot, and the damage is only the width of a pen. I'll leave a pic of it below, along with two others. Unfortunately, my camera sucks. Bass would be shipping out of Duncanville, TX (75137). The bass will ship in its a hard shell Fender case (if you'd like pics, I'll see what I can do). Remember, price is negotiable. I'd be up for trade suggestions, but I'm not interested in another J or P bass. I'd be willing to add money for a Lakland 55-01. Any other ideas, feel free to PM me. Thanks a bunch!
