Latest Fender Convert (Got pics!)

    Here is a few pics of my new Fender jazz. I chose this MIM over the MIM P because i just felt this bass a lot better than any P, including a 1995 American P. I hope you all enjoy these pics...! Jazz owners unite!
     
  2. Can't beat a classic. Basic black, just like mine, except I'm a maple fretboard man. Have fun with it, I'm digging mine.

    Bah, you can keep your black basses. But any Jazz is A-OK in my book. Congratulations on your purchase.

    I have seen alot of black with white pickgaurd fenders before and they never really tickled my fancy. But that one is just stunning. It has something about it. I just can't place my finger on it.
     
  5. Purdy, very purdy. Congrats on the conversion-

    I prefer black/black by a smidge, but that's still a very pretty bass.

    Ah yes. Tortoise shell on black body. Very nice choice indeed.

    I think you will find what your looking for at either www.warmoth.com or www.stewmac.com!

    Nice bass...I agree, I like the Jazz tone better than the P bass tone in most cases.

    Word of warning about the Warmoth pickguard on a MIM Jazz- it doesn't fit exactly. I bought one, and I had to make a little adjustment to make it fit. The cutout corner in the bottom right, where the control cavity plate is, doesn't fit. The wedge-shape needs to be widend out a little, as it were. I did this with a Dremel and then it slid on just fine.

    The only other thing is that there are about three screw holes near the top (bass side) that don't line up. I think it was Hambone that filled in the holes with toothpicks and then drilled new ones where they needed to be. I, on the other hand, have not goten around to that yet. It still holds on just fine. You can't even tell from further than two feet away.

    Those are my two favorites; both look great on a black jazz. Mines a black '83 Jazz (maple fretboard), I like the black/black best. Congrats, enjoy.

    Jeannie's Pickguards http://home.attbi.com/~pickguards/ will do an exact match pickguard - you have to send them yours and they'll pattern one after it. Guaranteed to match. And they do great work, take a look at my old '95 MIM:

    The Jeannie's pickguard fit a lot better than the original Fender.

    They're not cheap though.
     
  16. Then it would look like mine with frets...Yummy!

    I just bought a MIM Jazz and put a tortoisr pick guard on it. Looks nice!

    The tortoiseshell looks good on the black bass.
