    Purchased this about a month ago. It's a 2001 AV '75 Jazz :) :)

    I installed a new bridge and will be replacing the tuners with Gotoh GB640s to improve the balance (and the look). It's in amazingly good shape for it's age. And there were almost no signs of abuse or even basic maintenance. The truss nut might have been tightened maybe once in it's entire existence before I got it. So I did a thorough setup and it plays like a dream!

    Why did you replace the old (stock fender) bridge? The new bridge is nice but it doesn't look right for a '75 (or any Fender) jazz bass. Also I prefer black or tort pickguards on 3 tone sunburst (black is correct for a '75 j) - but somehow that white pickguard looks nice to me too. That said, your bass is gorgeous. Congrats!
