2002 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V

Here's a handsome sunburst 2002 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass V that dropped by for a string change, setup, and electronics check; amongst other things. The owner had also lost the battery compartment cover and had been using a strip of black masking tape to keep the two 9V batteries in place. That would not do, so I fashioned a cover out of a piece of plastic motorcycle number plate I had lying around. The cardboard battery clips also needed to be replaced, and the pots were generally scratchy. This meant a journey into the belly of the beast, and an opportunity to take a few pics. The battery clips were duly replaced, and a few squirts of contact cleaner managed to cure the pots' scratchiness. Job completed.
