    Custom Pre-CBS Style Jazz Bass

    An early ‘60s style Jazz, built by me. Really great sounding and playing bass. The neck is straight, truss rod works well, No issues with this bass. The action is low and it plays beautifully up and down the board. Every note rings out nicely and it sounds awesome. The frets have been leveled, dressed and polished for excellent playability, and the fret ends rolled for a nice smooth feel. The neck also has some very cool looking grain in the maple and a slab rosewood fretboard. It’s a very comfy neck. All the parts are high quality on this bass...

    • Body: New 2018 Fender Player Series Jazz body in Buttercream (looks just like an aged Olympic White). Lightweight alder, ‘60s pickup spacing. Holes for pickup & bridge covers. 3-ply white pickguard.
    • Neck: New AllParts Jazz neck. 1.5” nut. “C” profile. 10” radius. Tight neck pocket. Early ‘60s repro decal (on top of finish). Gotoh GBR640 Res-O-Lite (pre-CBS style, lightweight alloy) reverse tuners.
    • Electronics: Fender Player Series Jazz Bass Pickups (I was planning to change these out for American reissues but honestly, they just sound fantastic, so I went with what my ears like). 250K pots, .05uf orange disc capacitor.
    • Hardware: All Genuine Fender parts... “Pure Vintage” reissue threaded bridge, neck plate, VVT knobs, reissue tugbar and “hootenanny button” on back of headstock added.
    • Strings: New Fender 7250M nickel plated steel roundwounds (gauges: .045 .065 .085 .105)
    • Weight: 9 lbs. on the dot
