    Really low jazz action takes more work on the fingerboard as I REALLY work it over for a LOW jazz action when desired. I can dial in a 3 to 4 mm height for the G and D strings and not much higher on the A and E! I get RAVE reviews on this low jazz action as it is EXTREMELY low and easy playing without buzzing and rattling.

    body length 116 cm 45.7 inches

    $99 shipping to Qualified Commercial addresses not more than 600 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena, CA.

    A Qualified* Commercial Address is defined as a business address in an area that is incorporated or “Zoned” Commercial and where a large truck has “easy access” (a shipping & receiving dock or a place that is directly adjacent to an entrance not requiring any additional handling, i.e.; stairs or anything past the front door.
    There are additional handling charges for those and other services). When choosing the “Commercial Address” option below be sure to include the name of the Company in the shipping address in the checkout process.

    $99 Shipping to “Qualified* Commercial Address” requires the address to be located within 30 minutes, or so, of a major city, on major U.S. shipping arteries and not more than 600 miles or so from our shop in Pasadena Ca.

    Shipping rates can vary greatly depending on where you live. More remote commercial shipping addresses on the East Coast, New England, New York, New Jersey as well as Florida or the upper Midwestern States such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, for example, require additional shipping charges usually running between $35 and $85, but in the most crowded or remote areas can add on up to $140. These types of shipping destinations are more expensive to ship to from us here in California.

    The customer will need to make up the difference between the initial $99 shipping and the actual shipping costs. In any case, FMI will contact you if there is additional shipping due.
    Shipping to a residential address is $45 more to any State as it takes special handling by the freight line.
