Custom Fender Jazz Bass- Black With Gold Polka Dots This is a custom bass done by the The Memphis Guitar Spa in Memphis, TN. The Memphis Guitar Spa is a custom build shop, and they also do finish work and inlay for other well known builders.. This is their most expensive finish, and I know of no one else doing it. Ever since the Buddy Guy signature strat came out they have worked to perfect polka dots, and now offer them in all color combinations. On top of that, the gold is true Crescent Bronze gold powders, and the 3 dimensional quality is superb. The process to achieve this finish is very time consuming, but the end result is absolutely a one of a kind look, especially with the matching headstock and reverse polka dot pickguard.. This is a spectacular look onstage under colored lights or just sitting in a studio! Like all their Fender mods, this uses a Fender neck and body, but everything else is custom all the way. DR Hi Beam roundwound strings, CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, high value Sprague Orange Drop capacitor for wider tonal range, and the incomparable Jason Lollar jazz bass balanced set. Best Jazz Bass set avaialble, and the difference between this set and the stock Fender Seymour Duncan's is like day and night. Very similar to the Fralin set, only a little more punch and low end. They rounded this out with high end Hipshot tuning machines and all gold hardware. And it plays as good as it looks! They are professional luthiers, and this bass features a handcut bone nut, immaculate setup and intonation, and the cavities are painted with shielding paint so it is dead quiet. It includes a brand new hardshell case and a brand new Badass matching bridge.
