Fender / Status Sunburst Jazz Bass active - Custom Build perfect condition. I bought this amazing bass from the first owner who had it custom built by a local luthier. I has a very high specification and is based around a beautiful 2 tone sunburst body which is made from ash - although this wood is slightly heavier than alder or other body woods it gives the bas an wonderful warm tone and fantastic sustain. The body is mated to a Status Carbon Graphite neck - the necks are custom manufactured in the uk and give a really consistent stiffness and string tension and allow the neck to run a really low action without buzzing.Like all necks it has an conventional truss Rod but due to the stability of the neck since the first set up I have never had to adjust this in the 2 years I have owned the guitar. It also stays in tune extremely well even with new strings which is a benefit of the stability of the neck.
The neck was a true custom order from the factory and has the following options - ivory blocked fingerboard markers, 21st overhang fret, side dot markers at 126.96.36.199.9,12,15,17,19 and 21st fret positions, and the bare Carbon finish has been coated in a total black gloss lacquer, which is unmarked and plays really well - the fingerboard is phenolic resin and very easy to care for, with no need for lemon oil to stop drying out as you have to with wood. The components fitted reflect the quality of the body and neck with a fender high mass bridge, vintage active EMG pickups, gotoh string retainer, Hipshot USA Ultra lite tuners and a pre cut nut.You may notice two small holes near the bridge which are fixing holes of the old bridge which unfortunately were not covered when I had the new hi-mass bridge fitted. I have also fitted Schaller s locks and I will leave the buttons on the guitar - if you dont use strap locks then the pins will still accept a regular guitar strap anyway so no issues. I bought the bass as my dream bass after years of gigging with cheap instruments, however I have never gigged this bass due to it being so nice and it has become something that I only play in the practice room now which is a real shame. The bass has never been out of my non smoking home and will be supplied with an as new Boston gig bag which has the 20mm padded body for extra protection. This bass is really special and a little bit different than going for a standard fender Mexico or US model. Not desperate to sell but I will accept sensible offers so drop me a message.
