    Help. I visited a pawn shop yesturday. i found a nice fixer upper. but i need to know what kind of bass it could be and if it would be worth 50 bucks...It has a fender mexican jazz bass body.. but it has a tele-Bass bridge and odd pickups it has a pickup covered with a metal cover its about the size of a domino and its like a inch away from the neck.. and theres a odd old style (i guess) pick up by the bridge which is gold..my question is is this bass worth getting and fixing up..it has a small short which i can fix and it needs a tuning key which ill buy or just use from my other bass......my main concern is has anyone seen a simular bass or heard of a simular bass and are tele-bass pickups good? or should i replace them?? It has pretty good sound once i fix the short. any ideas if those specs are good for a bass?..

    sorry for the long message

    but thanks
