Dear all, I know this is a super nerdy, OCD type question, and maybe I do have OCD.... but it’s true, for all their attention to detail, Fender CS send out a high proportion of their jazz basses with the bridge cover mounted wonky. Why on earth would they fail to get this detail correct? It’s rare to see this defect on a real 60s bass. It bugs the hell out of me; I have a journeyman 64 Jazz and it’s perfect in every way - beautiful crazed surf green finish, awesome tone, best sustain I ever heard, really light at 8.5lb, matching headstock... I love it and it’s got that special magic, vibrates like crazy every note you pluck... but the holes for the bridge cover are way out of true - see pic! I’ve put a straight edge in lined up with the bridge to show the misalignment. And no, the bridge isn’t wonky. It’s mounted square with the pickup, and when the bridge cover is on THAT is misaligned with the pickup due to the holes being wonky. It’s minor in that most people won’t notice, but it’s also major in that those are irreparable holes drilled through that beautiful finish! Do they not have a template for where to drill the holes? Anyone else notice this? I’ve seen it on loads, maybe 50% of CS basses to a greater or lesser degree. But generally the AV64 line and the current 60th anniversary ones seem to have it mounted straight. Anyone got an explanation? Sorry for the long thread and hope this isn’t too trivial to warrant a response.
