Sometime in 2011, I developed an intense and irrational infatuation with seafoam green. Specifically, a seafoam green Fender Jazz. Oh, the many nights spent in front of the computer in a darkened room, staring lustily at the "Show Us Your Seafoam Green Basses" thread. I prowled the intertubes for months, searching for the bass that would fullfill my desire. No, my need. A couple of weeks ago, I decided I could wait no longer and splurged somewhat nervously (because of the cost) on a Custom Shop '64 Jazz. Bought it on eBay from Bizarre Guitars in Reno, NV. I don't normally like buying a bass on eBay, especially one as expensive as this one, but I decided to take the chance. Bizarre Guitars posted the bass I craved: Vintage specs (7.25" radius, vintage frets). And did I say it was seafoam green? The bass arrived Friday. (Finally. Though Bizarre Guitars shipped immediately, UPS was unusually slow, I suppose due to the holiday season.) I unpacked the bass, and it immediately took my breath away. Everything I imagined, and then some. Other than a string change (from stock Fender to DR Sunbeam nickel) and StrapLok installation, I had to do nothing. Intonation perfect. Just has the feel and sound of a super-high-quality instrument. I sold a 2009 oly white American Standard Jazz that I liked to help pay for this and, though I experienced some remorse when that bass sold on TB, I'm happy now that I did it. I plan to gig with it for the first time Thursday Jan. 5. Here are a couple of photos. (I removed and stored the chrome pickup ashtray but kept the bridge cover on.) The color of seafoam green basses is notoriously difficult to capture in photos -- like many beautiful women, they look different in every photo -- but I think these pix give the idea. BTW, Bizarre Guitars was really great to deal with.
