    OK, here is another bass project that I don't have time for. This came in a lot of 17th Street Guitars (made by John Carruthers) parts I bought a few years back. This is actually an unfinished Carruthers Alder 4 string Jazz Bass body (I did get a few of his too). This is designed for a true 21 (not the overhanging fretboard style) or 22 fret neck for proper bridge placement and scale length. Neck pocket fits a standard Fender size heel. A Fender neck would fit, but the scale would be wrong. This could make a nice USA Jazz Bass with the right neck. I'm asking $100 shipped to the CONUS. I'd consider a trade for decent compressor or an Eden WTDI. PM me with questions or to make a deal. Thanks for looking.

    No, but if it is a deal breaker, I can make one like I did on the other bass I have listed.

    You know what, I made a mistake with this. You did post in the correct section, and I misread something along the line. I'll reverse this right away. My apologies for the confusion!
