What makes this bass special:  100% original with a super cool vintage vibe.  Classic sunburst finish & a smooth playing, comfortable neck.  Pro set up included by the experts at Cream City Music, so she's ready to play straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition:  Used, but not abused, with good honest play wear - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some finish wear.  There's a small crack in the first fret of the fingerboard due to the truss rod being over tightened.  This is purely cosmetic & doesn't affect playability & the truss rod does function fine.  Overall the bass has a great look to it with a gorgeous patina.

Neck:  Nicely rounded maple neck with black binding & pearloid side-dots.  Maple fingerboard with black block inlays.  Frets show some wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Fender nickel tuners are in perfect working condition.  1 1/2" nut width; 34" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod functions well.

Body:  Contoured, solid alder body finished in 3-tone sunburst.  Top-loading bridge with four adjustable "barrel" saddles & bridge cover.  4-ply tortoise pickguard & black plastic finger-rest.  The guard is in great shape with no cracks.  Bass weighs 10.7 lbs.

Pickups:  Original Jazz Bass single coils - both pickups date to '72.  Dual volume & master tone controls - pots date to '72.  All electronics are in good working condition.

Case:  Original hardshell case included.

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
