FOR SALE: 5st Jazz Ash/Maple CAR w/matching headstock #022

Post by Phil » 29 Mar 2012, 17:58

Up for sale is a 5 string Jazz bass, its currently 3/4 done. It's essentially a stock instrument made for selling once done. The neck was originally for 020 but I made the stupid mistake of drilling the tree hole in the wrong place, d'oh! :thumbdown it's now plugged but you can see it, that means this bass is only available as a solid colour with matching headstock. Check out all the colours available on my Fender Custom Color thread.

Specs:
Chambered Swamp Ash body
Maple fingerboard with black dots
Nordstrand NJ5 pickups
Dunlop straplocks
Nordstrand vintage bridge
Hipshot Ultralite tuners
Lightweight foam hardcase


EDIT:

Painted in Candy Apple Red with mathching headstock
60's bridge position
Your choice pick-guard
Aguilar OBP-2 preamp
Bass will be available for shipping on July 22nd, come and try it in person at Sydney GTG on July 21st


Price shipped within Australia, passive = $2150
Active with Aguilar OBP-1 or OBP-2 = $2300

I know it looks totally naked without all the gear on it so here's a pic of the body with the stuff on it :)

Image

Just picture it with your favourite pickguard and favourite colour. Awwwww Yeahh!! Sweet!! I can just picture that baby :D

If this doesn't sell in advance i'll likely finish it however I feel like and offer it for sale once done.

Can't put a veneer over the headstock like over the chambers? Just a thought....

Just weighted the components, the final weight should be about 3.8 - 3.9kg

The neck is already lacquered so its too late for trying to glue a veneer on it, it would be a very obvious fix. The best option is really a matched headstock, plus i'm dying to try one of the Fender Custom Colours :) that bass is a good candidate for it.

If only it had a birdseye, amber tint fingerboard like the EBMM Stingray Classic I currently have.... :drool:

Hey Phil, is that possible? Oh hell, that was my "out loud" voice, wasn't it? :banghead:

I actually think there would only be a handful of custom colours that would work on this... a quick search of the interweb reveals that most Fender custom colour instruments look "right" because they have the contrast of a rosewood fingerboard against the body.

The paler colours and things like gold and burgundy mist look great with a maple neck, but I would probably be tempted to have it sprayed ORANGE and be done with it.
