Fender Jazz Gibson Thunderbird Inspired custom built Bass (Local Pickup Only)
The name of this shop is the same as my Reverb shop. I'm doing local pickup/cash only because of the "double taxation" that has ruined selling private gear. I paid sales tax on the parts I bought. Now "they" want you to pay sales tax for buying this from me. Get a lower price on this, pay Cash in person which also allows you to try before you buy. No Returns, please be sure you want this guitar before buying it. Please read entire listing for all the details. This is a nice custom Bass for the price! Studio or Gig ready. A YouTube sound clip video is online if you want to hear what it sounds like. If you are seeking a true 1970's Jazz bass sound, this is it. Bass is a 2021 parts built bass body that I custom cut and contoured, *total cost for parts with no labor was just over $1,250. *Labor $1600* The body is 1-3/4" thick in the center areas similar to a Gibson Thunderbird and then thins out towards the top and bottom with the shape similar to a Stratocaster with narrower horns, more curves/contours and like a Precision at the bridge end, which shaves several pounds off the total weight bringing it down to 9 1/4 lbs. A bit of breathing room sanded around the neck/body mount area to reduce the chance of the phenomenon called "neck pocket crack" that could result from wood expansion during high humidity Pickup and control cavity has Copper shielding. 2 thin coats of oil based Poly that has been hand buffed to a vintage satin finish. True 70's voiced pickups, Bourns pots and Switchcraft jack all wired with 22 gauge Fender Vintage copper strand wire. A custom made control plate with copper shielding to work with the new body shape, Fender Stratocaster knobs and vintage style strap buttons. Satin finish on the fretboard with a smooth matte finish on the back of the neck and headstock, which is contoured to match the 51 Precision headstock and soft sanded in a few areas for that Vintage look. It has premium fret end dressing with the fret ends behind the black neck binding and a hand shaped/cut nut. Comes with new D'Addario EXL165 45-105 strings and a lightly padded gig bag.
