Description Completely worthless to a collector or trader, but pricelessly unique to the player who still grieves its loss. This was a late 70s Jazz Bass body attached to an 80s Precision neck. The original neck had 3 bolts. The new neck had 4. The conversion left a hole in the body that wasn't covered by the neck plate. Due to the hybridization, the serial number was lost. At the time it was stolen, it had Bartolini pickups, a Badass II bridge, a black/white/black pickguard with red silver and white stripes painted (badly) on it. The black body had a greenish tint to it in sunlight, and had quite possibly been painted over a natural finish. There were wear marks on the edges of the body where one may expect for a gigging instrument that wasn't badly abused. The most notable mark was a rounded triangle pattern near the bridge pickup from many hundreds of thousands of finger strikes.
