Last Xmas (2013) my girl bought me a squire vintage modified jazz bass. Sunburst ,tortishell pick guard, Duncan designed pickups. A great bass for $300. Squier is doing wonders with the quality of their instruments for the price. Any I pulled some stupid idea that I could make it a fretless by simply removing the frets LOL. yes i'm an idiot. I ruined the neck after playing it at the time for about 5 months.It sat around all summer and fall until this recent xmas she bought me a new neck for it,cause she knew how bad I wanted to play it again. So any way I got a squire 60's style neck whick looks/feels/sounds Amazing! replaced the pick guard with a 3 ply black one to give it that 70's look, Volume and tone control knobs from a fender amp that have #1-10 and have a nice shape to them.Seymour Duncan SJb 3 pickups,and replaced the saddles with brass saddles,dunlop gold strap locls AND D'Addario standard guage strings.Its a bad ass squire! anyway figured i'd share..
