                                          ~~ Vintage 1974 Fender Jazz Bass ~~

Genuine US 1974 model year Fender Jazz  Electric Bass guitar. Re- finished 'Natural' with an all Maple neck, with Rosewood fret board and pearl block markers. Included as well is a Fender budget gig bag, well used. Also included is former owners strap by Ernie Ball.

Specifics: Body, neck, neck plate, tuners, pickup plates, are all original to the bass.
 The pots are newer 250K CTS replacements. The pickups are genuine Fender Vintage RI.  The knobs, control plate, bridge, thumb rest, and pickguard are genuine Fender replacements. The non- original parts were pro aged by Madison's Music. The bass looks amazing in it's relic condition. 

Overview: Although this bass is not for the collector, it is still basically original, with awesome tone from aged wood. There are no neck issues. No flips, heel rise, dead notes, etc. No buzzing with medium action. Truss rod works as intended and tight. The bass is strung with quality round wounds at this time. The pickups sound amazing, much better than stock. ( You may want to raise them to suit your playing style, the neck pickup seems a little weak, but measures 7.3K)! All electronics work flawlessly. The bass is light at just over 8.10 lbs. Body is Alder, and has lots of wear and aging to finish. It appears to have been Sunburst at one time, but the re finish job is very old and well done. The neck and frets are in good condition and the original tuners work perfectly. The bass has had intonation set, and is all ready for stage and studio. Just tune her up, no further work will be needed anytime soon! I certainly could part this old bass, ( for more $$ ), but I feel it deserves a better fate. Easily a restoration candidate, or simply enjoy it as is!!!

Summary: What I am offering here at a bargain price is a wonderful vintage 38 year old Fender Bass. A bass you will be proud to own, and certainly better than cookie cutter computerized models made today. This bass has it all, vibe, tone and looks!!!

Shipping: The bass will be shipped LOWER 48 USA via UPS. ANYWHERE ELSE will be shipped USPS. I will gladly send the bass with neck detached to destinations that will not accept a long bigger box, such as Australia. Ask any and all shipping questions before purchase. I do not send basses as 'gifts'. Don't ask.

Legal: All sales are FINAL. The instrument is as described.  No returns on vintage goods. NO 0, negative or problem eBay members PLEASE!!!!! Sold------ 'NO RESERVE'! ----- HIGH BID WINS!!
