So I ran across this cutie, and it eagerly wagged its tail and followed me home. What could I do? MIM, 2001 (Feb. 18), with a Jazz Bass neck, V/V/T, side mount output jack, HSC, unopened case candy bag. I love the way Fender used the third pickguard hole (usually used for the output jack) to mount the tone knob. This way any standard Precision pickguard can be used. It came with another pickguard, but I had this white one laying around. A white pearloid pickguard is on the way. The bass came to me with action at about 1/2". The seller said he bought it ten years ago intending to learn to play, but had never gotten around to it. A few simple twists of the included truss rod tool and the installation of a Badass II bridge I had laying around resulted in surprisingly low action, one of the best I have. All of my favorite basses have PJ pickup setups (Pedulla MVP, Yamaha BB 3000s). I'm not crazy about the tone of the MIM pickups in this one, and hear a noticeable loss of bass when the Jazz pickup volume goes above 2/3 or so. A pickup upgrade might be in order. But all in all, a very happy day!
