    I just picked this up off someone on Craigslist for $180. It's a MIM Fender Jazz with a serial dated back to 2001-2002. The guy said he bought it new back then and it has been in the closet since. It sure looks like it. Aside from a small chip in the finish, it looks new. The action is a tad high but it felt fine when I played it. Either way, I can't wait to get home and try it out plugged in. I think $180 was pretty good, right.... right? :D

    Good year for MIM Jazzes. They got CTS pots and a proper bridge-sized bridge pickup.

    $180 plus the cost of a good setup (if that's not in your skill set) seems like a very good deal. :hyper:

    For another few bucks you could have Jeannie's Pickguards (or another source) make you a dark tort pickguard... To my eye that's a _killer_ look.

    Yeah, I don't even want to try setting it up myself. I'll just take it to Nordstrand. I think they know how to do it. :D

    180 that's the price of an affinity. Tight.
