    USA 75 Reissue Jazz, Natural finish, maple fretboard with black blocks, brand new condition with all case candy, handtags, and OHSC. Bass weighs 8.2 lbs. I just won this on another site and will sell it for what I have in it. It is perfect, I just prefer the pickup placement of the vintage style jazz.
    Might consider a trade for a 62 reissue, or a Lakland Skyline Jo or Darryl Jones.

  3. Fritz,
    Can you tell me the difference? Is the 75 too close to the bridge? Thanks,

    Its about 1/2 inch closer than a vintage. It bothers me more in feel than in sound. I'm just used to the other spacing. But, it doesn't seem to bother Marcus Miller : )

    Sorry guys,
    I've been out of town. As of now, I'm comptemplating a trade for a Darryl Jones. My asking price was $875. I think it was a good deal. I didn't care for the pickup placement on the 75 reissue, its much closer to the bridge and kind of cramped my right hand when playing over the back pickup. The Darryl Jones is very much better than I had thought. If you have a straight up cash offer for 875, let me know today. Otherwise, I will probably go for the DJ.
