Original vintage jazz for sale. Ash body, maple neck/fretboard. Frets are in excellent shape for its age. Tuners are original, and ashtray/pickup cover are included (I can't say whether or not they're original). Everything else has been modified as follows: -Nordstrand custom wound jazz pickups (60s era wire, 5% overwind on bridge pickup) -Babicz gold bridge (similar tone to the badass bridge, but more vibration transfer to body wood. Which equals better tone IMO). -Custom wired electronics ('62 style stacked volume/tone controls, and a varitone rotary switch that switches between different capacitors, varitone bypass switch, and a series/parallel switch). In parallel the pickups function as normal jazz pickups, in series they are like one precision bass pickup and are both controlled with the neck volume/tone knob. So as you can see, it's been modded to be the most versatile jazz bass around. It does jazz, precision, 60s, and 70s with the flip if a switch and the turn of a dial. Between the tone knobs and varitone, this bass can achieve classic R&B tone, even with super bright stainless steel strings. ****PLEASE NOTE: I have attempted to remove the neck to see the serial number. However, the amount of force required to remove it makes me feel like I will break it. I have the original pickguard which has a 78 serial number on it (I can send a picture of it to any interested persons). Whether or not the bass itself was made in 78 is debatable, but there's no denying that its from the 70s. And the fact that the neck can't be removed does not affect playability. ***$1500 obo*** Please pm me for lots of HD pics.
