    Why another Jazz? Why not? They are my absolute favorite and all of my other Jazz basses are '70's style with blocks, wanted a classic looking Jazz w/Dots and old school Logo... Pics...

    UPS man dropped it off... (yeah, I gotta sweep my porch, had a big wind storm last night)


    Out of the box...

    Out of the gig bag...

    OMG...check out this beauty...

    Back... I like how it has NO skunk stripe...

    Setup was pretty good out of the box, just had to tweak the action and intonation a little bit. Sounds awesome like I knew it would :)

    Very nice! I have spent years talking trash about the MIMs, but I got one of these in a trade and it is surprisingly nice. Mine has had some big upgrades and still needs some nut and fret work, but it plays pretty well as is. Good luck!!!!

    .. purrdy!! ;)

    ... the sticker says 9.5" radius, I have had a half dozen of these, all 7.25" ... in fact the last one I switched out the stock neck for Reggie neck, exactly the same, but had the 9.5" radius ...

    .. enjoy!!

    Edit to add: .. just checked the Sweetwater site, and they still list 7.25" radius in the specs, and have a picture up with 9.5" on the sticker .... I wonder if there are errors on the sticker or a transition after 16 years of nothing changing? ...

    Such a beauty! And among the last of the rosewood fretboards too. Congratulations. Don't change anything except the strings. :bassist:

    Fender website still has fretboard radius listed as 7.25" also, but they also still have rosewood board ... Crusher's beauty looks more like Pau Ferro to me, maybe the sticker is wonky ...

    .. in any case, the bass is a beaut!!
