I have a very lightweight precision body and need to marry it up with the lightest neck I can get my hands on. Two problems; 1) no-one seems to state what the neck weights are, and 2) where could I source a lightweight neck?
I really want a Telecaster neck with rosewood fingerboard!!
Up for the chop is my mid 00s MIM Jazz V Deluxe 5 string.
Was originally passive but its been upgraded with an John East J retro preamp with a battery box professionally installed as well and the battery clip wires from the east extended. So no more taking the control plate off to change batteries
its kinda wine red/burgundy (photos seems to be quite accurate on the colour)
with mirror pickguard.
there are two big knocks to it through the finish (see pics) and the pickguard has a couple of spots where the mirroring seems to have rubbed off under the perspex top layer.
Other than that it's gravy. Neck front and back are excellent, frets have very little wear on them. Tuners (Gotoh) in good nick.
oh and it could probably do with a new set of strings. The rounds on it are pretty dead.
Any questions give me a shout.
im open to partial trades and sensible offers.
I have packaging, heavy duty gigbags and boxes ATM so can ship well protected.
And so I succumbed to the temptation to do a cover of Dean Town by Vulfpeck... but wow what a gorgeous bass line! Here is my version played with a Fender Precision American Performer in single coil mode. I hope it is
at least decent! 😅
