Just bought a Jazz body off Craigs...

Postby nolabass » Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:48 pm

This might be a nice deal.....paid $55 for it and it seems very light. Had the bridge mounting messed with but I believe I can plug it and start over. Been rubbed with two coats of oil....nice open tone thumping it. I have an '83 Fullerton RI P neck for it. Might look to the parts Gods for bits and pieces. Kinda like the idea of it coming together Karma-ally. I need a beater bass for jams...I also have a satin finish MIM P Bass neck I could use but the Fullerton deserves first shot.

Sweet score there Pete. I have a Gotoh bridge that might fit it [smilie=cool-smiley-031.gif]

Ya....really nice light ash. The seam is tuff to spot. The guy felt bad for messing the bridge up so he was willing to let it go cheap but it seems to be A+++ quality otherwise. Thrilled with the weight. Gonna be a -8 lb Jazz. [smilie=music-smiley-005.gif]
