This auction is for a lightly used 2008 Squier Classic Vibe Jazz Bass ’60s, that has extensively modified electronics. It is a right-handed guitar, in Olympic White, with a brown, tortoise shell pickguard. It has a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, and is finished in a vintage tint gloss, with a synthetic bone nut. The neck is a modern “C” profile, with a 1.5″ nut width, and a 9.5″ fretboard radius. The body is apparently made of Basswood, although the guy who sold it to me at Guitar Center had told me it was alder. I trust Fenders website not to lie, though. The original pickups have been replaced by a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz set (dp149). The controls, and original control plate have been replaced with an Audere Audio Engineering Active Bass Preamp (Pro JZ3). The control configuration is a volume control, a concentric mids/balance control, a concentric treble/bass control, and a programmable “Z-Mode” switch. Details on the preamp are available on their website, and the paperwork that I received with it will be included. It is an active preamp, and requires a 9-volt battery. The original plate, knobs, and wiring harness will be included. It has a HiMass bridge with brass barrel saddles. The bass is barely used, as I’m a guitar player, and purchased it to do home recording that never came to pass. The body and neck have no visible flaws, and look brand new. There is some light tarnish to the tuning keys, neck plate, and bridge, but, because it saw so little use after I bought it new, and because it’s been case kept, I can only assume Squier didn’t spring for very high quality plating. There are a few light ‘pick swirl’ scratches, on the pickguard, just under the strings. It sounds fantastic. With the preamp, it’s a real thumper with sustain for days. Since it is my last remaining bass, I will throw in my Fender Bass truss rod tool as well. It does have a RoadRunner case, that is hard foam structured, but has a nylon outer skin, and zips closed. It also has interior and exterior storage areas. I will only sell or ship to the mainland 48 United States, and I will only accept Paypal. You must be located in the U.S., or provide a U.S. address I can ship to.
