    Hi all! I've been toying with short scale basses and picked this one up. It's a very cool bass, but I'm not bonding with it!

    It started life as your basic $200 Squier Jaguar Short Scale.

    But, before I got it, the previous owner spent more than that additionally in upgrading it!

    He added:

    Seymour Duncan SPB-3 Quarter Pound P-Bass Pickups ($75 @ Sweetwater Seymour Duncan Basslines SPB-3 Quarter Pound P-Bass Pickup - Black)

    Seymour Duncan SJB-3 Quarter Pound J-Bass Pickup ($65 @ Sweetwater Seymour Duncan Basslines SJB-3 Quarter Pound J-Bass Pickup - Black Bridge)

    Fender USA Bass Tuners ($30 each @ guitar-parts.com Fender American Deluxe Bass Tuner, 0063547000)

    CTS Pots ($30?)

    High Mass Bridge ($20 Imported)

    Pickup Cover ($20?)

    Flat Wound Strings ($40)

    These appear to be the common upgrades that people in the TalkBass Squier Jaguar Short Scale Club do, so this may be a turnkey model for someone.

    If we add $75 + $65 + $120 + $30 + $20 + $40 +$20, we get $370. And that's on top of the $200 that the bass cost! (i.e a total of $570!)

    So it seems to me that $250 is pretty reasonable if you're the type that is planning on upgrading.

    If you're not planning on upgrading, then move along - nothing to see here for you! ...cause I'm asking $250 for a $200 bass! :D

    I took these pics before I cleaned it up.

    The only obvious flaw is under the pickup cover. (Although the Jbass cover appears to have been too long, and the PO took plastic off the ends)

    I also have a Badass bridge I would add for an extra $60 if that is something you would be interested in.

    The way that purchases are usually made on TalkBass is via PayPal (just like on eBay).

    If you don’t have a PayPal account, go to www.paypal.com and follow the directions. Then you can send money to anyone with an e-mail address

    Philip,

    That's agreeable. Figure I can clean up most of the road rash, and replace the tuners eventually.
    But for right now its going to get lugged between home and school.
    My long scale is too big and too nice honestly.
    Do I just log on to paypal and pay directly to your e-mail?
    Or does it go through talkbass?

    Why would you replace those tuners?

    Not what, why? The ones on it are very good tuners. This bass needs nothing.

    Is this bass sold? It can't be taking him that long to get a Paypal account, could it? :D

    If not, talk to me, please.

    Okay, thanks. Not trying to step on anyone's toes, but it's been a while and thread wasn't marked Sold.

    Good luck and enjoy! :thumbsup:
