    This is my Jazz Bass. There are many like it but this one is mine and it's tuned to B00 - B0 - E1 - A1.

    Just got my hands on this, but the neck was offset. Have a buddy that builds custom guitars who is fixing it and I should have it back soon. Sounds amazing and played pretty decent for the neck being out of alignment (notice how the strings start closer to the B string side near the nut, then are closer to the G side at the body).

    Going to replace the bridge soon, too. Any recommendations?

    Those old Squiers were pretty cool. I always liked their more modern takes.

    Why are you thinking about a new bridge? I've played a 4-string version and it seemed plenty solid.

    How much work are you looking to put in, because that thing looks like a great candidate for a 2TEK.

    It's got some substantial corrosion on it, and one of the saddle screws came apart (due to the corrosion) when trying to do the set-up - replaced the screw, but not sure the bridge is worth overhauling. I kinda dig those Hipshot bridges, but since it's not an immediate need I figure I can take some time to research what to buy. And, I want to fix up my 7-string Jackson first next, so the HM will have to get in line after that.

    I sold that HM and replaced it with this:

    As much as I liked the sound and look of the HM, it just never gave me that gut reaction this one does.

    Feels and plays a lot better than my previous one (ESP/LTD B-105).
