Inspired by the Fender Original Vintage series, I decided to build myself a new Jazz bass.
Body is original Fender USA.
Neck is a Warmoth custom made, birdseye maple with perloid blocks & binding.
Pickups are Fender Pure Vintage '75.
Tuners are Hipshot.
Bridge is a Fender Deluxe.

After these pics were taken I replaced the pots with CTS log types and replaced the standard Jazz knobs with Strat style ('78!) ones. Looks sharp imo.

I will post new pics shortly.

Amazing quality, very stable and sounds really really good.
Happy with the result!

That’s a cool pic of the Jazz and P.

I love the pick guard on the P Bass. Where did you find it?

I found that on www.tone-guard.com . Not very cheap, but good communication and great service!
