So, I picked up a 1998 MIM jazz as a project bass. Black body, white pickguard, nice neck and rosewood fretboard... cosmetically perfect, but quite possible the worst sounding bass money couldnt buy. So.. I will route the bridge cavity, do a complete shielding job, clean and finish the fretboard and frets, replace the nut with tusq, and install a pair of N3 noiseless pups.. So here the fun stuff... any other ideas & comments pls post. 1. Change to tortoiseshell pickguard & call it quits 2. add a 62RI neck and vintage white pickguard..old school 3. Ninja Version ..black pickguard, black control plate, black bridge and tuners. 4. the required carrots option... orange body, green head!
