A few weeks ago, I put a hold on a 1977 Fender Jazz bass, natural finish, what I thought was original parts it was only $1700 on Guitar Center's site which struck me as low after looking around a little more. But then I thought, maybe it's still a decent bass and figured I'd look into it more before paying the full amount. So I called them today to get more details on it and I'm really glad I did, because they told me that the bridge had been modded to a Bad-Ass which I was ok with but apparently the guy who did it made a real mess of it and countersunk it into the body in order to keep the action low. Which sounds like a hack job. I'm just really crushed right now. This was practically all I could talk about for weeks and I was really excited. It's my dream bass. I don't want a different year or a different finish. If it has a Bad-Ass bridge I'm okay with that, as long as it's done better than this one was. But this is what I want. And it just really sucks to now have to keep looking. I guess I'm lucky I didn't pay for it in full before discovering this, but I'm also more than irritated at Guitar Center for not being straight with me the first time I called to put the hold on it and not bothering to mention any of this. I know it's a huge corporation and they can't be held accountable for everybody knowing everything about their entire inventory, but their used website is very problematic it does not allow them to give full descriptions of the instruments and obviously it sets people up for deception. Anyway, the search continues .
