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

      Hi folks,
      EMG GZR Precision pickup for sale.  Lots of talk about these; they make a superb upgrade  - only selling as I am trimming down my collection.
      These seem to be £85 delivered new but with all the connectors and pots.  This is just the pickup, wire and screws so the price reflects this.
      Thanks

      Squier Vintage Modified P-Bass with luthier made 5 string neck in Wenge and Maple with Ebony fretboard.   The bridge was moved back to make the scale length to 35 inch scale.   Pickups upgraded to Delano PMVC 6 FE/M2 and pots changed (original pots included).   Hipshot Kickass bridge and Hipshot tuners.   Set of D'Addario Flatwounds installed a few weeks ago (ECB81-5SL)   Set of Roundwounds included (about 6 months of use).   Body refinished in Sherwood Green and in excellent condition with only a slight 2cm blemish (see pic).   Due to different pickups the pickguard doesn't cover the recesses fully, will need a custom pickguard if you want to fix it (didn't really bother me).   All work done by previous owner, had the bass since May and it plays great, no issues, selling as I prefer a 4 string and want something lighter / thinner.   Quite unique bass for those who want that Precision sound and an extra 5th string.   Test and pickup encouraged, will ship to UK for another £25 - I will include a budget gig bag with it. International shipping possible, please enquire.   Any questions or pic requests welcome.

      It's a neck, tuning machines and string tree from a 2020 Squier Classic Vibe 70s Precision Bass. Which I reckon is about 50% of the bass itself. (I have the pickups, bridge, neckplate and pots somewhere if anyone's interested, for a few dollars more).
      It's a maple neck in vintage tint with maple board and black blocks/binding. Includes the original tuners and string tree. All 100% stock. The only mark on it is where some of the varnish on the truss-hole chipped when the rod was turned. See here:

      The whole thing is finished in the spirit of the poo-brown flare-clad Capri-driving 1970s. It has been barely used and frets are all in perfect nick.Truss turns and works properly.
      It's a slim, shallow neck for a P-bass, and fitted the body it arrived with perfectly snugly. C profile, 'crafted' by a CNC operator in Indonesia.
      Collection from Hove, or UK postage at cost (choose your preferred courier).

      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.
