    Hey guys...I have one of these a/m loaded bodies left from last months class at the school. Its brand new. I think the color is Fender's Capri Orange. These come from a Japan vendor and the school buys them in bulk lots of 12. We've used a lot of these over the past couple years. Everything is brand new, pickups are very good, electronics work fine, and they sound really good too!! I've noted that the neck pickup sounds a bit more like a Precision than a normal Jazz...but the bridge pup is pure Jazz. Standard 5 hole chrome bridge. The neck pocket measures between 61-62 mm wide...we usually use Squier necks and most of them fit snug. Once in a while we need to sand either the neck or the open just a bit for a good fit...depending on the actual neck. These bodies are very lightweight, about 5+ pounds. Comes with factory pre-installed thumb rest. Add a good neck, and these make a nice budget bass that sounds VERY good.

    Comes with new neckplate, black gasket and 4 screws. Also includes a new set of (3) black Jazz Bass knobs free.

    I also have a couple new sets of chrome bridge and pickup covers (both) for these bodies for additional $30.

    $165 OBO...shipping $15. Swap for a MIM Precision loaded body. (+/-) cash either way
