Yup that is a real nice guitar…! When I was looking at them they were a grand with the case. If you know someone in the business and could get 40 % off list. I paid 1.6 K for the custom shop signed on Ebay. I like the Ebony necks for tone so all of my strats and my Jazz-O-caster have them. And yes the locking tuners are the way to go. If you look close behind me I always have a spare in case I break a string cause I beat-um hard. My neck has no finish and is satin and as smooth as a baby’s bottom, made from birds eye maple. If you look close you can see though the finish and the wood grain under the nitro....Zap

thats sweet, i was actulay thinking of getting a tortoise shell
pickguard for mine. Yea i can see through the finish, i remember
finishes like that back in the 60's on fenders i forget the name
of them but you can see through it and see the grain.

I have Ebony fretboard on my 99 Fender USA Jazz Bass, really
love that neck, they are hard to find for bass.
Thats where i bought my Standard was on eBay, it was brand
new still in its factory wraping, but with no case so i got
for $900. I already have a bunch of cases anyway, i have it in my
Eric Johnson case in the photos.

thanks, its giving my Eric Johnson a run for its money
of course they are two different animals, the EJ is like a
57 reissue really vintage, this one is the best of the modern
goodies
