To see the pics skip down a paragraph... I had just begun working at GC when we had a massive sale. I was an accessories salesman (and a darn good one) and in our blowout bin was a long box that said Fender Replacement neck. I pulled it out and it was a Fender replacement 62 jazz neck. It looked so forlorn, and sad, and was so inexpensive at 89 bucks (less than half what the store paid fender for the neck) that I had to buy it. I took it home and put it on my MIM Pbass. It wasn't bad looking, but I wanted my pbass to stay the way it was. The poor lonley neck sat around forover a year as I collected the parts I would need to give it a new life in it's new home (my bass collection) I assembled all the parts and sent it with my brother to have his guitar tech do final setup on my beautiful, but not quite finished bass. Fineally, almost 2 years from buying the lonley neck, she was reborn like a butterfly as a beautiful jazz bass. See her here.(click on the pics, they came out better than I expected) http://photobucket.com/albums/y167/dane5140/bass pictures/ Parts are... Fender: Replacement 62 jazz neck, vintage tuners, Noiseless, pickups, control plate, pickup cover, pots and strings. WD: Ash body Leo Quan: Baddas II Bridge Rickenbacker knobs Unknown brand: wiring, input jack, and pickguard, strapknobs Formby's tung oil for the body (a ton of coats) I have A/B'd it against tons of jazzes including the vintage basses at Chicago Music Exchange , and it holds its own against any jazz, and sounds alot better than many modern and vintage instruments that cost many times more. I really dig the warmth of the Vintage noiseless, and the sustain of the badassII bridge. The first time I played it in band practice, my guitarrist commented on how my tone had suddenly improved. My only regrets are that I didn't wire it with a push/pull for series paralel, and the fact that the grain on the body is so much better on the back than the front. (WD said that I could have returned it if I had wanted too) All in all, I am very very, happy.
