I just did something very, very bad.

    While cruising Ebay, I happened to check out a Mighty Mite Jazz bass body auction. I've bought a couple of these bodies before, and they're really pretty nice overall. Anyway, I'm someone who, due to some health issues, needs a lightweight bass. My neck and shoulders just can't hack playing a 10 lb bass. OK, back to the auction. I looked and it was one of those rare auctions for MM that listed the weight, and this one was an unbelievably light 3lbs 14 oz ! Yep, a sub-4lb bass body ! It had a "best offer" option (reg price was $125 with free shipping) so I offered $110. Well, I didn't have a response after about 15 minutes, so I went ahead and paid the full price for fear of having someone else come along and buy this super lightweight body. The $15 price difference just wasn't worth losing the body over.

    So it looks like I have "yet another project" in the works. :hyper:

    Anyone got a good neck or some great J pickups available ??? :D
