Hi guys, I forgot to take pics last night so I'll hold off on the NBD thread for now, but I just got my first US Fender yesterday - the 75 Reissue jazz in natural with maple fretboard and black block inlays. She's beautiful as is, honestly, and perfectly balanced. Here's the sale thread with pics for now, but I will take more as I've been meaning to get a new family photo including the rig... Here's the deal: I can't decide if I want to mod it. I usually like to add my own spin to basses here and there mostly so they're not exactly like others of the same model. Sometimes it's simple, like just a pickguard swap, other times I'll swap the bridge for a high-mass and/or light-weight tuners for balancing, or just to get away from chrome. I already have a spare black control plate and I'm considering blacking out the bridge and tuners while I'm at it. Bridge: Aside from colour, I love the Hipshot A-style bridges for not having to pull the string through a hole (and therefore straighten the top of a used string) if cleaning or adjusting with the intent of reusing the same strings again. This also let's me throw a high-mass on at the same time rather than the stock bent-plate. However this thing has no balance issues and doesn't really lack sustain as far as I can tell... But as far as that style goes, it's worth it for the simplicity of stringing/restringing and it does come in aluminum as well if there's no need for a heavier one. Tuners: I'm also undecided about tuners. Love the ultralights because hey, less weight is great; and I may want to get Y-style or lollipops as opposed to the clover style. Again, not so much to combat neck dive, she's pretty damn perfect as is. So do I go for it? Aside from ending up a little close to Scott Devine's blonde jazz when I'm done (this is why I might not go lollipop style), it would look great and not so stock, and I could perhaps shave off a bit of weight. Would you go for it or save the cash? The nice thing is these are easily reversible mods, but at the same time, if it ain't broke... My head is running around in circles!
