    Just curious to see how many other Jazz bass owners there are lurking around...and any upgrades/customization they may have done.

    Here is mine:
    Standard jazz in sunburst, I ditched the stock white pickguard in favor of a '62 re-issue tort pickguard...for more of a 'vintage' vibe. Eventually I want to swap in seymour duncans and upgrade the bridge...but money is tight right now thanks to the christmas season.

    I always wondered how long it would take before someone started a thread about Jazz basses.

    LMAO!

    I have a Geddy Lee Jazz. It is darned near perfect. The only way it could be better is if it was a 5 string.

    ok, i'll play too... i expect this to end up a megathread tho... :)

    My Geddy... pretty much the perfect J at this point. I've replaced the pickups with DiMarzio J's, converted it to PVT controls, and did a major shield/reground job on it, and put black knobs on it. It's awesome. I should note the ONLY reason I swapped the pickups was because I just can't stand single-coil hum, and I like to solo the pickups a lot... especially the bridge. Thankfully, the D J's preserved that tone.

    Anyway, here it is:

  12. No pics, but I have a MIM Fretless, no mods yet. I'm planning to put on a BadassII, new pickups, and maybe a new neck somewhere down the line.

    I have a feeling that AG's jazz is a Lull. :)

    Oops... I guess I was wrong. Great looking bass Adrian!

    That's a Warmoth that I ordered a while back for my "formal" gigs and just because Fender doesn't make a "Geddy 5 "
    I had it up for sale for a bit, but it is such a nice bass, i decided to keep it. because it's a "no name" i wasn't going to get it's worth... but it is awesome- all top of the line components, and a ridiculous low b for a 34 in scale.. though I am an F bass disciple, gotta love a Jazz style bass !
    here's a link to more pics if you care to..
