- I am reluctant to sell this lovely bass. I have played different jazz basses.
By far, this jazz bass has the best tone among all the passive jazz basses that I have owned.
For me (and my subjective ears), it seems that this bass has a natural scoop in its tone.

Please Note:
1. This bass has been modified.
The previous owner modified this and tried to emulate the Marcus Miller bass (I think).
Thus, please take note of the following modifications:
a. Badass Bridge - original bridge will be included
b. Brass Nut - I do not have the original nut anymore

2. The hardshell case has some wear, and has no keys (see photos).

3. This bass has gone through 4 decades, and it has seen some action throughout its lifetime.
It has its scars to prove it.

4. It is not easy to pull the knobs off from the pots.

5. There are only 3 screws that hold the tuner for the G-string, in which these screws have loose threads.
It is the tension of the G-string that holds it (the tuner) down in place.
It was like this when I got it.
I discovered this when I changed the strings, but it has not bothered me or my playing.

6. I may withdraw this sale at anytime.
