Great example of a Limelight jazz. Only for sale as I'm really only playing 5 string now and want to raise the funds for a 5 string Fretless. Would consider a trade/PX for a nice lined 34 inch scale fretless.
Recently restrung with a set of regular slinky's and played very little since. Also I have replaced the saddle height adjustment screws. The originals had siezed (a fault with the relicing process which Limelight have now changed). The new ones are hex rather than slotted, so not period but much easier to use - but can give you the size details if you want to change them back!
I asked Mark about this history of the bass a while ago and he said the following:
Limelight 00137 is quite an early one - the 37th one made in fact, and finished in october 2014. Ordered as a 1960 Stack Knob Jazz in Orange over white with a Jazz width maple neck (Not actually an option in 1960 but it was common for necks to be switched).
This build was ordered with the earth strip from bridge to bridge PU, but without mute holes, and no hootenanny button either. Also requested for the thumb rest to be in the upper position above the E string (Fender moved it to this position in 1974, before then it was below the G). Also had the later (1968 onwards) barrel saddles bridge instead of the threaded bridge.
There are some nice pics of it on their website here:
Weighs in at 4.4kg (9lb 12oz)
Would much prefer collection from Chelmsford or local meet up, but may post at buyers risk and expense.
Any questions let me know!
