Hi, found this thread. Would you be able to do a custom loom? I'm going to wire some new pickups into my Jazz but I've heard great things about having a series/parallel push/pull pot. Would this be something you could do? If so, how much. Many thanks!

I have bought a couple of kits of this fella and I have to say, they're top drawer.

It's funny, whenever I look at eBay listings for Jazz basses or Precisions, the first thing I think of is replacing the pickups and wiring harnesses. John is always the go-to person for the harnesses. Quality and value.

Hi John,

I have a Squier classic vibe jazz bass which i upgraded with a Fender S1 control plate that I picked up on eBay. I want to replace it because the S1 switch is not working correctly. I was asked in another thread about the Obsidian solderless wiring kits and someone suggested I asked you.

Firstly, can you do a wiring kit with an S1 control in it?

If not then I might just go back to the regular wiring, but it means I'm short of a volume knob as this one has the push button in the center. Can you supply a loom with the knobs or recommend which ones to get?

Cheers,

Jim

I'm now sitting here with John's new wiring in my MIM Jazz and I'm a very happy customer. The first loom supplied didn't work as it should but John was super-helpful with lots of support and swapped it straight away when we'd worked out it wasn't me that was at fault (which, being honest, was much more likely to be the case). Buy from this chap with confidence!

Hi John,

I'n building a custom jazz bass and I'd like to order a jazz bass volume/blend/tone pre-made wiring loom on a new black bell plate but I need the right size bell plate.

I have the old, scratched black bell plate that came with the very nice natural bass body and this fits with the new scratchplate I bought, and all the screw holes for both line up with the screw holes in the body. The old bell plate is 68 mm at its widest point but the replacement bell plate I bought is only 59 or 60 mm at its widest point, so it doesn't fit where it meets the scratchplate and the screw holes don't line up with the screw holes in the body. Do you use bell plates that are 68 mm at the widest point? If so, I'd like to order a new black bell plate with a jazz bass VBT loom and black knobs/white lines. If not, can you source a three ply black/white/black jazz bass scratch plate that fits with the bell plates you use?

Many thanks

John

      £799 (ono) delivered in UK only, or pick up from Brighton.
      Through gritted teeth I am selling my Flea Road Worn Jazz Bass. It's a long story, but I ended up buying two Road Worns at the same time, and I prefer the red one. I'd like to keep a stack-knob too, but my bank would disapprove and my wife would leave me.
      Nice dark rosewood board, faded shell pink lacquer, CS64 pups and weighs 4.1kg according to the bathroom scales. Comes in a new-looking Fender gig bag.
      Full disclosure: This is a 2016 bass, but with a (genuine, new) 2020 replacement body purchased from Stratosphere in the US [eBay listing here].
      It is 100% stock apart from:
      Kiogon solderless loom replacing the original pots and wiring * Genuine Fender brass external earthing strip (purely decorative) Genuine Fender Road Worn strap button on rear of headstock (largely decorative). * Knobs and plate are original, only pots and wiring are changed - shout if you'd like the originals included.
      You probably won't like my wussy light strings and cig-paper action, so allow for that. The neck is straight and the truss works just fine. All the electrical bits work just fine and sound ace.
      Here's the official spec page: https://shop.fender.com/en-GB/electric-basses/jazz-bass/artist-jazz-bass/flea-jazz-bass/0141020356.html
      Ask about any other stuff if you like. I'm open to offers but not silly ones, as I need to recoup some costs.

      Hi.... recently finished a jazz bass kit... the volume controls seem to work strangely... the bridge volume seems to work like a blend knob...volume increases as its turned off... and can’t seem to get the bridge pickup on its own..  have i messed up or is that how a jazz works?(I’m a guitar player) tks appreciate it.

      Bass in very good condition. Only a small scratch as you see in the photo.
      Everything works fine.
      Original Mike Lull case included.
      The bass is located in Italy.
      Trade with Hi-fi, Hi End amplifier.

      So I’ve decided I probably need a p-bass in my life but do I go for new or vintage? If vintage, is there any truth to the horrors of the CBS years or is that a myth? Maybe the build quality of MIJ is the way to go or do I just get something brand new(ish)? In the depths of lockdown, getting about to try stuff is not really an option so I’m looking for opinions. Yes, I know there’s a ton of stuff on here already but it’s bewildering so at the risk of getting shot down in sunburst, thought I’d put the question out there again.

      SOLD, PENDING THE USUAL.
       1983 Squire JV Precision bass, candy apple red, rosewood board. All original domestic JV, alder body, relatively light – 3,9kg. As one can expect the bass has been played a lot and shows some dings and dongs here and there, patina on the hardware, etc., but is all original and in more than perfect functional condition: neck is straight as an arrow with minimal truss rod tension (it has a loooot more room to go), also the neck is extremely comfortable at 42mm at the nut and the playability is to die for – out of 12 precisions that I possess incl. very nice vintage fenders, this is the most comfortable to play: super nice neck profile (flat, but not too much) and extremely low action. This is also the last JV I have and the best compared to all the others I had over the years (around 10 if I remember correctly). With flats it does the Motown job, with rounds it sounds deep but aggressive.
      More detailed pictures can be found here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/1AJdmjTWwmQ3Qi7R9 
      Why am I selling it if its such a great bass – I am letting go a part of my collection and keeping only the more vintage precisions. I am aware the asking price is not among the cheapest – I have sold JVs here for 500 pounds some years ago, but am also not quite sure I want to let this one go, so if it doesn’t sell for this, I’ll be happy to keep it. Plus - try to find a CAR with rosewood board - it took me close to a decade. Also, if you purchase it and do not find yourself to like it – I can take it back as long as you cover the shipping and payment fees.
      Any questions – please, feel free to ask. Price includes shipping to most parts of EU.
