    From what I heard that is his Dad's bass. He had at one time, but there is a video on You tube that a boy has it and he says he is Berry's grandson I think. You can find the video by searching tractor bass. It looks as the bass.

  5. That bass is an excellent player. Sounds great. It's a 2001 bone stock.

    Never a single issue with the neck. It went from warm house to freezing cold practice garage several times a week. Or from air conditioned house to sweltering practice garage if it was summer. Also left it over night in the truck after gigs in both winter and summer. That thing is stable. Quick tweak on the tuning and good to go.

    Glad to hear that you have enjoyed it so much! My current entry level Shecter 4 banger's neck twisted a little after not playing it for a period of time before I got back into things. Something I hope to avoid with my next bass purchase. I have been split between getting a used player jazz V + hx stomp or just getting a used American standard jazz V.

    Nicely done across the board! Did you do the refin yourself?
    Cheers!

    Does anyone know if the 5 sting American standard Jazz's from 2011-16 have the custom shop 60 pickups? Or was that only on the 4 strings? Can't find anything anywhere specifically on the 5 strings...

    This question came up in this thread some months ago…last spring or early summer, I think. The TB'er who brought up the question eventually reached out to Fender and, sadly, no. They never made Custom Shop '60s for fivers.

    At the time, I was putting together my previous parts-bass Projekt and was about to try a set of Bartolini B-Axis humbucking pickups. I was curious to see how they measured up to CS '60s and if they'd be a suitable alternative. Overall, I'd say they're pretty close.

    Full disclosure…while the respective basses they're installed in are fairly close in construction (alder bodies, all-maple necks, same brand/type/gauge strings), the one with the CS '60s has '70s-style pickup placement, so that does skew the results a little bit. Still, if you're looking for something close, look up some demos and sample to see if they look promising to you.

    I was so blessed I sold mine 4 years ago and 6 months ago I wanted to pick it back up. Not a gigging person I was a music major in college and at 64 just wanted to play. My wife told me to get one.

    <sigh…:rolleyes:> Well, since your wife told you to, I guess that's okay. (He just had to play the "wife" card, didn't he…jerk…:cautious:)

    Seriously, though, what did you pick up? It looks like an American-Made Fender, what with the bridge and truss rod channel at the heel, but what's it's pedigree?
