Yeah I did get them on, looks pretty cool. I've got it apart at the mo, did a thorough shielding job on the jazz, and replaced all the pots with USA Fender parts. Got the last of the soldering to do then I'll take a pic and post it up. Some TI flats will round it off nicely I hope!

Fenderfan.... TIs are perfect for a Jazz bass. When you shielded (excuse me asking, I dont know your level of expertise) did you do the pup routs and connect them to the cavity? And ensure the whole lot is earthed to the output socket and all the pots. There is no such thing as too much earthing on a Jazz. I also solder all the seams in the copper shielding and solder wires to the copper in the pup routs and connect them to the cavity.

Pins... I'll go a new G string. When I put my old TIs on my new P bass and remembered I had cut the G for a 2+2 headstock, so now Ive got a knot in my G string, and it seems to work, but with my luck it will come apart at a gig!
If any one is interested, I've got a TI low B string in perfect condition for sale. I'll probably never play 5 strings again, so no need to keep it. PM me.

Marty, yes, yes , and yes! Hopefully I've successfully done it all right.... The tutorial I watched on shielding had the pup rout done, but not connected.... I just thought that it didn't make sense, so wired everything up. I'm just to solder the earth and pup wiring to the mounted pots, gonna get my cousin to do it, he's a hell of a lot tidier than I am with a soldering iron. He'll probably pick apart mine and redo it. I guess an area when OCD comes in handy!

After advocating TI flats for years, I put a set of DR Stainless rounds on the 68 Jazz last week and must admit I am really enjoying the extra bark they are giving me - plus the TIs aren't too high a tension for stainless. Left the TIs on the Precision, too much vibe there to risk a change. The Sadowsky arrived with Sadowsky stainless rounds on them which seem quite a nice string - medium tension and punchy at the exremes. No doubt the TIs will go back on the jazz at some stage, but for the moment I am enjoying a change. Such fun being a bass player and chasing different tones :)

I think the only answer is to have two of every bass, one with rounds the other with flats

Ordered all the strings Monday guys but just had an email saying "one or more of the products you purchased is not ready to ship at this time" :( oh well these things happen.
I will let you know when the order is shipped for those waiting.
