What makes this bass special:  A dynamite player's grade vintage Jazz Bass at an affordable price.  Not the prettiest gal at the party, but she can certainly deliver the goods with exquisite tone & feel.  A real rockin' beast with a great neck & killer sounding EMG pickups.  A pro set up by Cream City Music lets you know she's ready to go straight out of the case!

Cosmetic Condition:  Good honest play wear & in pretty good shape for being nearly 40 - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches, weather checking & some finish wear.  The body has been oversprayed, but the neck was not.  There are a couple of chips in the pickguard, but no body routs.  Overall the bass has a great look to it with a cool vintage vibe.

Neck:  Slender profile maple neck with cream binding & black side-dots.  Maple fingerboard with mother of pearl block inlays.  Original frets are in great shape with hardly any wear.  Headstock decals are original & in great shape.  Original Fender tuners are in perfect working condition.  Bullet truss rod & single round string tree.  1 1/2" nut width; 34" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body:  Contoured, solid ash body in natural finish.  Top-loading bridge with adjustable barrel saddles.  Bridge cover is missing.  4-ply black pickguard has a couple of chips & is missing its thumb rest.  Bass weighs 9 lbs 7.6 oz.

Pickups:  Unoriginal EMP Jazz Bass pickups & pots.  Dual volume & master tone controls with original knobs.  All electronics are in good working condition.

Case:  Unoriginal SKB 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.
