    sorry my picture taking skills are a bit bad(the first pic)

    it sounds very nice, it came with some rotosounds awell. I think i am going to put those on some time.
    I never knew the wiring on jazzes went under the pickguard and not through the body(damn, cant play without pickguard) also there seems to be a random hole in the top left hand corner (anyone care to enlighten me on what it does?)

    I think it makes a clicking noise when i tap the machine heads, bridge and strings (ahh ground buzz right?) it was on my old(bad, plywood, cheap) bass aswell. Im going to have them both checked out today.

    Congrats!

    That bass will take you just about everywhere you need to go -- at least for a while!

    Some Fender´s, Mexicans and the New Usa models (?) have that sort of wiring. Though I have the Mexican made 60´s classic jazz, it´s wiring goes inside the body.

    You´ll get used to it ;)

    im still confused about the ground buzz, I took it to a repair shop, they tried it out, no problem. they said it was probably the location of my amp or the amp cables.
    And then at home on my amp it still does it. I tried moving my amp changing amp signal and power cables.
    I also plugged my head phones into my effects pedal (zoom 506II, it has an amp simulator or something)and it didnt buzz. so im thinking something is wrong with the grounding in my amp. either that or my amp is plain weird.
    And to be extra certain i went on the fender site and looked up the wiring, all the wires were in the right place and were secure(including the one to the bridge).


    Im REALLY confused now.
