Instead of paying close to 3 grand for a '64 or /62 jazz bass relic from the fender custom shop, how about this. Spend a third of that on a reissue, take the neck and electronics off of it. Get out your steel wool and give the pick up covers a good brushing to get that shine out. Then, take some more steel wool to the body in places that would have some wear and tear, get that nitro finish all scuffed, but not down to bare wood. Pre-heat your oven to 250 degrees. Put the bass body in your freezer. 20 minutes in the freezer, 20 minutes in the oven. Repeat. Keep doing this until the nitro starts to check. Reapply steel wool, then oven and freezer again. Steel wool the neck as well, but don'nt do the freezer trick. Make a pot of coffee. put the nut in a cup of coffee overnight, as well as pickguard, maybe in a lasagna pan. reassemble and you have your very own "relic" jazz bass. If you want, you can send me your reissue and a grand, I will do this for you, and you still save a grand for yourself!
