Hey TB, So, i had a spring-cleaning freakout this past weekend. I had (for me) too many bass-related 'things' that never got used. So, with the idea to just really make room and pick up a few sets of strings, i went to my local used place. I ended up walking out with a good chunk of cash, 3 sets of strings, a small amp i can use with headphones.... and a new bass! I know... i didn't want or need a new bass, but while i was being appraised, a suh-weet looking 90's Mexi Jazz bass caught my eye. It's price was reduced to a do-able range thanks to a missing volume knob (which i had) and... the bridge and neck pups had been swapped! As such, the pole pieces didn't line up, and the neck pup was wedged beneath the pickguard... which made the output rather low. So, after a half-hour with a soldering iron, i have a damn-fine playing MiM Jazz bass!! Pics later... ...but WHY would someone do such a strange/drastic 'mod', that essentially made the bass unplayable??
