I Know there are tons of fender bass`s around but I never get tired of checking them out, Especially the vintage ones.
So I thought it would be fun today to go thru my thousands of files and check out some Fenders.
First is a
Fender USA 2015 American Deluxe 5-String Jazz Bass
This bass was new in 2015 not too long ago, but it has been played only a handful of times at jams. It is in practically brand new condition and still has all of the case swag. Comes with the case and original strap w/ stock strap locks Made in U.S.A. You could set these up with either the high C as the fifth string or go low with the B as the fifth string Looks great in sunburst gotta love it.
Next We Have
The Fender Deluxe Active J Bass Special
A Classic Bass for serious players. A work horse, to say the least. A smooth Maple finger board allows for easy fluid neck motion and an irresistable aesthetic. Come pluck around on it!
is packed with a pair of dual-coil ceramic Noiseless J-style pickups, delivering classic Jazz Bass punch and growl, but without the hum and buzz. A 3-band active EQ yields lots of modern sound-shaping options, but an active/passive switch ensures that vintage tones are comfortably within your reach.
Even the back side looks beautiful
A pan pot allows for precision blending of the pickups. Finished with comfortable satin polyurethane, the Deluxe Active J Bass Special’s cozy C-shaped neck is a joy to play, and its HiMass bridge exhibits excellent resonance and sustain.
Made in the USA, 5 string, almost new, series switch, hard case, Rosewood neck. Hardly used and in excellent shape. No chips, sounds great, very responsive. I found out that I just can’t get used to a five string, too many years with a four string.
Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass(Montego Black w/MapleFret) – $1200
Here’s the specs:
The upgraded Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass guitar captures the spirit of Fender innovation with its three-band active EQ, pair of Samarium™ Cobalt Noiseless Jazz Bass pickups and 18-volt power supply.
This select alder-body bass has a modern C-shaped, graphite-reinforced maple neck with a contoured heel (for easy access to upper frets), five-bolt neck plate, maple neck, abalone dot inlays and highly detailed nut and fret work.
Other features include chrome hardware, deluxe chrome-plated steel bridge plate (string-through-body or top-load) with nickel-plated brass saddles, and Fender/Schaller® Deluxe Lite-Bass tuning machines.
This is a Fender Custom Shop Classic Jazz IV bass. Light, active, trully superb high end jazz bass. I am an original owner. Its been my main instrument for 4 years. But I mostly play 5-string now so this one has been in a case for a while. A brand new is around $2400. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to buy a high end professional intrument locally instead of buying it online without actually seeing it, I may consider a trade for a right 5-string Sadowsky, Lakland, or Mike Lull bass. If your bass is more expenssive I will pay the difference. I would also consider a trade for a Musicman Stingray or Modulus Flea bass (4 string). $1600 OBOEditors Note Compare this Bass with that last post the 60`s jazz for 400.00? how many differences do you obviously note? That is with out playing it.
This is my American Jazz Deluxe Fender Bass 5 string. Blood red in color.
I originally purchased it on sale at Guitar Center for $2200 and used it for several years playing church gigs. Well, time moves on and things change. I haven’t played in several years and it is time for me to let it go to someone who will love it like I have.
It is in perfect working condition, very little in the way of scratches. I’ve kept it in its case inside my house. The sound is amazeballs. Seriously, you can’t do better than Fender Jazz.
I’ve had this bass for a while… and sadly, it’s time to admit I’m just not a P-bass guy. I tried it with Flats/Mute for a long time. Put nickel rounds back on it and gave it another whirl. I’ve brought it to many gigs, but mostly it just sits on it’s stand as a backup and never actually gets stage time… it’s an ’08 (or about) with all the new “upgrades”. It’s in virtually mint condition with the newer case and some/most of the case candy
