I commissioned this bass from Adrian at the end of 2015, as a sort of Leo Fender Greatest Hits. Jazz body and controls, Stingray pickup, L2000 neck, Precision headstock, that kind of thing... 

It worked really well, and plays beautifully. The video below is not my bass, but is identical. I think Adrian liked the concept, as there have been a few similar examples since. 

Specs:

34" scale.

2 octave neck.

Blank ebony fingerboard with sidelines. 

Maple neck, angled headstock. 

Mahogany chambered body with Ash top (matt finish). The top is beautifully textured, and the flaming has appeared and grown since it's 'creation'. 

Quick release bridge. 

Bassculture quadbucker pickup, passive  vvt, 2 mini switches (series, single coil, parallel) in an ebony cover.

The pickup has four coils. One volume and mini switch per pair of coils. This gives a real good variety of tones. All 4 coils in series gives a massively grunty Stingray tone. Back 2 in parallel is Jaco's territory, and the front 2 in series begin to approach Precision territory. 

String spacing at the bridge is 18mm

Neck is a nicely chunky 43mm 

Weight is a very balanced 8.3lbs

The condition is almost as new. I've gigged and rehearsed it, without giving it any knocks! The forearm chamfer is a bit shiny from sleeve rubbing, but that's it. Apart from a really tiny burn mark on the edge of the control cavity, caused by the soldering iron when I changed the volume pots. It is almost invisible. 

Happy to post, in bombproof packaging.
