for sale – (1) 1996 Squier by Fender 4-string Jazz Bass with upgraded Seymour Duncan Lightnin’ Rods Active Jazz Bass pickups other upgrades to this bass include: Gotoh 203-N nickel plated bridge, Schaller tuning machines with bright nickel finish, nickel finish neck plate and screws and solid metal knurled volume and tone control knobs also in nickel finish. 20 fret rosewood fretboard, 34-inch standard scale. I need to point out that the pictures were taken while I had a Gotoh 201 bridge installed temporarily on this bass, the actual bridge that I have been using and the one that is currently installed on the bass is a Gotoh 203, the model 203 matched better to the 7-hole bridge mount that the original stock bridge had. Picture #4 shows the 203 bridge that comes with this guitar. one odd thing about this bass is that it is factory labeled as the Jazz Bass, yet it has the nut width of the Precision bass; usually the Jazz necks have a nut width that is 1/8-inch narrower than the P-necks I am the original owner, purchased this bass back in 1996 as new. Shortly after I bought it, I painted the pickguard completely black, it was white/black/white 3-ply. The black paint-job has held up surprisingly well over the years, only a little of the white is showing thru in the area where the thumb usually rests. I also installed the Lightnin’ Rods pickups, Gotoh 203-N bridge and Schaller tuning machines myself. the frets have plenty of life left on them, neck is straight. the strap mount holes have been moved slightly, less than an inch from their original location, the original screw holes are still visible. there is a 3-inch scratch right next to the neck plate on the back of the body that has been painted over with a paint pen and there are various small scratches and small dents in the finish from use, mostly on the back of the body. I do not have a case for this bass, however it will ship within the original Fender gig bag that I got with the bass and will be packed well within a sturdy cardboard shipping box (52x18x7); the gig bag is still in good shape except for the zipper handles have broken off, I currently use a large paper clip inserted thru the hole in the zipper body where the handles previously were. please feel free to ask any questions, thanks.
