Up for sale, a Real Life Relics Custom Class 54 body paired with a genuine Fender Flea signature Jazz Bass neck. A custom built parts bass, Real Life Relics offers quality USA-made components designed to complete your dream build. This bass features an alder body with an uncatalyzed nitro lacquer Surf Green finish, professionally relic’d to taste, paired with a Fender Flea Signature Jazz Bass neck with a slab rosewood fingerboard, and a Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickup. Strung with flatwounds, the bass has deep natural resonance that translates well through the single coil, offering a balanced, plucky thump that is both articulate and round. This custom-built bass weighs 9lbs 6oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 50-105 flatwound strings and comfortable action.
The maple neck has a slender U-shaped profile at the nut, gaining more heft and roundness as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .820” deep at the 1st fret and .980” at the 12th. The fretboard edges are lightly rolled, and the neck profile features a custom relic treatment for a naturally worn-in feel. The thick slab rosewood fretboard is a dark, tight-grained cut with a 7 1/4" radius, featuring the original pristine vintage-spec slender frets and playing cleanly in every register. The scale length is a full 34”, and the nut measures 1 1/2“ in width. The headstock features long stem clover button Pre-CBS-style Fender tuning machines with relic'd nickel plating.
On the body, the simple electronics work as they should, with Master Volume and Tone controls with full-size pots and a Sprague Orange Drop tone cap governing the Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickup. The large parchment guard is clean as can be, and the control plate, knobs, and custom numbered Real Life Relics neck plate have the same simulated patina seen on the tuners. The body features a nitro lacquer Surf Green finish, relic'd in-house by Real Life Relics.
A Fender-branded hardshell case is included.
