Now sold, thanks for all your interest!
Up for sale is my awesome Fender Jazz PJ, which has had quite a journey from its life as an 07/08 Classic Series 60s Jazz to the beauty you see before you up for grabs.
When I first purchased the bass, the PJ conversion had already been done to a very high standard (see pic of the very neat routing) and fitted with a WD Customs Pickguard, housing an excellent Tonerider TRP1 pickup. I've since paired it with a Tonerider TRJ1B Bridge Pickup and fitted the stacked knobs control panel from our very own KioGon. It sounds immense.
But... When I tested it in the shop it did have very high action, which should have rang alarm bells, but instead I just thought I could get it set up to my preference. Unfortunately, what I didn't realise was the neck had an annoying twist which my previous tech attempted to mitigate by fettling with the frets. That sort of worked, but I couldn't get the action as low as I like without it choking out.
So, faced with a dilemma of selling the bass as basically knackered or, trying to rescue it, I decided on the latter and sourced and fitted a new vintage spec tinted rosewood jazz neck (sold as Allparts B Stock, although I can't find anything wrong with it) a set of very cool & solid Gotoh lollipop tuners, finished off with a very accurate original spec decal.
I've just had it back from my new local tech who's done a full fret level, nut tidy and set up, so it now plays perfectly.
All in, this bass has cost the best part of a grand, but no matter how much I love the look or how many I buy (6), I just can't get on with the jazz body shape & neck, so rather than have it sat on a stand looking fantastic, I'd rather sell it on to someone who'll appreciate it and get it played. So, grab yourself something quite unique for a bargain price!

The bass is in very good condition, but does have some age related marks, mainly light buckle marks on the rear and some small scratches only to be expected for a 13yo instrument.
Collection from Eastbourne is preferred but please get in touch to discuss shipping. The bass will come with a rather tatty gigbag, suitable only for shipping.
Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions.
