ok, so i have been drooling over the geddy lee jazz for a really long time now, i played one at GC and absolutly loved it. but i have a few questions. the first, should i purchase this bass new or used? are they still MIJ? the second (set) of questions. i would like to chage a few things cosmetically, i was thinking a Fender 70's cut B/W/B pickguard, along with the addition of pickup and bridge covers to give it that vintage look that i love. I know that i would have to remove the BadAss bridge to add the cover, but instead of a stock bridge, what all fits under that ashtray without moving it from its stock position? does the hipshot vintage model bridge fit? thanks guys!
