    I am interested in a trade!! I have a Warmoth body. It is light Swamp Ash with a Quilt Maple top. Really nice not overdone at all!! It is a P bass shape with a P and J configuration. It is back routed so no pickguard has to be used. I got this body by luck and good chance at a really good price. (It would probably sell around $300 on Warmoth) so I couldn't pass it up. I have never finished a body before and was going to try but have decided against it! PLUS I would want a solid color with pickguard and it seems like a shame to cover up this wood. (The pickguard would be OK but the opaque color would be going to far). I would be interested in a trade for a Jazz bass body or a P body with a P/J setup. Preferably in a Olympic White, vintage white, Sonic Blue or Sky Blue Color!! If you have any other suggestions please let me know. This is a SUPER nice body.

    Please respond to this thread including your email and we will talk about specifics and I can send you photos!!

    Hi Buddy

    I know this isnt exactly what you are looking but the bass body you have IS what I am looking for. How about a trade between for your Warmoth body for my 1997 Fender Jazz body AND Neck. let me know if this interests you.

    I'm shooting this back to the top for more people to see.

    I am interested in any Jazz body (MIM, aftermarket, etc.) as long as it's finished and either ash, alder or poplar (like the MIM Fenders).

    Just post here and I will respond with photos and further description!!!

    I believe that I WILL entertain sale offers for this body as well as trades....so if you like what you see post here and I will email you!!

    For those loooking at the photos.

    I have the back plate it just isn't included in the photos.

    There is an extra strap button hole which I show in one photo (no big deal)

    There is foam in the pickup routes that was from a previous pickup installation. Very easy to remove and I can do so myself before shipping if that si how you would want it.

    There is a thin satin finish on it that would be very easy to remove to start from scratch BUT it could be left as is and assembled without more finishing. That is what is giving it the vintage tint!

    And like previously stated it's light swamp ash with a quilt maple top. This would sell for probably around $250 in the Warmoth thrift shop without the finish and small strap button hole. Also it is pre drilled for the bridge which takes that installation hassle out of the mix.

    It is a very very nice looking bass body in person. While I think the pictures are good I still don't think it does this bass body justice!!
