I ordered this as a desire to try their new Jazz Bass, and get a Paul McCartney Jazz tone from some of the later Beatles songs and early Wings stuff. Turns out, Jazz Basses really aren't my thing anymore. I'm "Letting Go" of this one (pun intended). The bass is ash with maple, and weighs between 8.5 & 9lbs. Sounds fantastic, feels great, and looks killer. Comes with the hardshell, spec sheet & tools. I also strung with D'Addario Chromes and added a foam mute to really get that McCartney Jazz tone. I got it for $1675, but I'm looking for NOW $1200 shipped ConUS. This is really high level stuff here. Serious inquiries only, please.
