    I bought this bass new with a cracked headstock two months ago. I've repaired many broken headstocks in my home studio. I enjoy rescuing instruments and giving them new life by utilizing my boatbuilding skills and knowledge of wood, glue and epoxy.

    The method used for repair was West System epoxy. Worked great and the surrounding area of the repair is now stronger then the wood itself. Because the headstock decal area was sanded, I replaced the decal with a "Fender" waterslide decal. But please not this is a Squier Jazz bass. Also, since the string tree was missing I drilled out a GB £ 6 pence coin.

    Other mods:
    -refinished the body by stripping to natural (maple body), stained and applied 3 coats of nitro clear coat. Not a perfect refin job, but I was going for a semi reliced look which I think was achieved. Looks soooo much better then the thick poly finish these basses come with.

    -pick ups were upgraded to Seymour Duncan STK-J1b and STK-J1n.

    -new Omega Bass high mass bridge.

    -new Starr guitars custom wiring harness.

    -includes Fender strap locks.

    -Dunlop Super Brites

    Also includes a nice like new gig bag.

    This Bass plays amazingly, best Jazz Bass I've ever played and the repair is flawless and proffesional done (THIS IS A SQUIER NOT A FENDER)
