PRICE DROP SEE BELOW> UPDATED TRADES. I just got this from musicelectronix. I was going to keep it but I don't really have the need for a back-up jazz bass. It's a very cool bass but I'm digging my p-bass too much at the moment for what I'm doing. I am including a nice gig bag with 2 big pockets. Trade for a digital recorder that has a CD burner in it. See below for price drop and updated trade offers. Here are the upgrades & disclosures from his original thread: 1 - He replaced the maple neck with a rosewood one, block inlays, bindings and all 2 - He applied 70's style Fender Jazz Bass decal and 7-8 layers of clear coat on top of that (thicker than most). It doesn't show any edges and looks almost stock 3 - He installed brand new Grover Titans (my favorite and IMO the best there is). Here it is, at the bottom left: http://www.basspartsresource.com/bass_tunersgrover.htm 4 - The replacement neck come without the nut slot, so he needed to cut it myself. I couldn't do a perfect job, It turned out to be a little wider than the nut itself. he didn't glue the nut though, thinking I would put a bone nut there at some point. It is at the right location and VERY solid. I will leave it like that, because you might wanna replace the plastic nut. 5 - He replaced the white pickguard with a pearloid one. At this point, I noticed a set of extra screw holes under the pickguard. I recieved it at that condition. Doesn't matter though, they are all under the pickguard. 6 - He put Duncan Designed pickups in, which are the exact replica of SJB-1 vintage jazz bass pickups (even to the cloth wire) according to the seymourduncan.com, only there were made in far east. I do have a bass equiped with SJB-1 and they do sound identical. They are the ones come with VM Squiers. 7 - After he put together everything, bass didn't intonate properly, so he moved the bridge a little back. he (again) noticed there was another set of bridge screw holes under it. After it was moved, two of the top screws became 5% exposed. You need to focus there to see them though 8 - He gave the bass proper setup with Roto rounds. The action is as low as possible, which is pretty low, perfect for finger style. His Original Thread with pics: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=464530 PM me with questions/offers.
