I painted this bass (with spray equipment, NOT spray cans) to see if I would like Dakota Red with a black pickguard, but it is not really my color. Since I did this bass for myself, not really intending to sell it at the time I did the work (yesterday), it has a few small flaws in the finish. If you have ever owned a nitro bass, then you know that the clear coat is fragile compared to modern catalyzed clear coat, IE, it scratches easy and wears with age and use. $200 plus shipping With that said, here are the details: * Squier VM neck, electronics, and pickguard * Squier Pete Wentz signature body * PPG lead based Dakota Red base coat * Nitrocellulose lacquer clear coat * matching headstock * "Fender Jazzmaster" (guitar) waterslide decal between the color and clear coat. * Vintage tint neck * Set up, plays and sounds great. Intonation is dead on, action is about 3-3.5mm at the 12th fret. Here are the flaws / things you should know / things that will matter less as the clear coat ages / things you can see in the close up pics: * slight sand thru to the black on a couple spots near the neck pocket * slight light spot in the color base coat on the top of the bass above the bridge * scratched the clear coat installing the E string, behind the bridge * slight visible sand marks on the color base coat, under the clear coat * clear coat not buffed out yet (usually I let it cure for a week or so, then sand to 2000 grit, then buff out till it looks like glass). This clear coat went on really smooth, and you could totally get away with not buffing this out. * tint on back of neck has a few small spots in the tint (under the clear) where the color didnt adhere perfectly. I would probably have to point this out in person, but you can kind of see what I am talking about in the close up pic of the neck / body joint. With all the flaws listed, this is still a kick ass paint job, one that you would be hard pressed to make happen for the price I am selling the entire, gig ready bass. Here are pics that show the paint job in progress, the complete bass, and close ups of any issues.
