What makes this bass special:  100% original & in really great shape for its age.  Finished in classic Sunburst, this gorgeous Jazz Bass has an ultra cool, vintage vibe to it along with superb tone & feel.  A tight neck/body connection ensures an excellent transference of energy & the double Jazz Bass pickups deliver warm, rich tones.  Professionally inspected & set up by the experts at Cream City Music, so it's ready for action straight out of the case!

Cosmetic Condition:  Really nice shape for a 40 + year old bass with some typical play wear - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking, buckle rash & some finish wear.  Overall the bass has a wonderful look to it with a gorgeous patina.

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.
