The next patient from the Katrina instruments was two sets of Fender J-Bass pickups. These basses were sent to Amy Hopkins by working New Orleans jazz bass player Jim Markway. According to Jim the bass was in standing contaminated floodwaters for over 2 weeks. It is a refin, a player's bass. Says Jim about his Blond Jazz bass I bought it in 1970, my first pro bass. I had it defretted in the late '70's. Jaco played it in the early '80's, when he was crashing and burning, and somehow he messed the neck up. I put a Warmoth fretless neck on it, and it was actually better.
