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.

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.
2002-ish mexican jazz bass, “special edition” (whatever that means). ash body. i upgraded the pickups with tonerider alnico classics, new cream pickup covers and strat knobs. also has upgraded badass II style brass bridge, new strap buttons, custom tortoiseshell pickguard. the pickups are currently wired parallel with a master volume and tone, with a push/pull switch on the tone pot for series wiring. the short/long of this is the bass is always hum canceling, with the pickups moving equivalent volume with the one knob… the series wiring give you an output and EQ boost which really cuts through.
although this bass is currently wired to be a serious rock machine, i can wire it back to original 3 knob volume/volume/tone if you would like it to be for an extra $25. i used all alpha pots and a switchcraft jack as well, so this thing is beyond tip top. frets are in great shape, i’m mainly a guitar player so this has been played out a few times and used for recording maybe 3 times in the time i have had it (i bought it new at GC). it does have a few dings here and there, but still in great shape and very solid.
if you need a great feeling and sounding gigging workhorse, this is your answer. included is my crummy non-fender hard case.
2001 Fender Jazz bass MIM with serious upgrades upgrades… Badass II bridge – best there is. It has Seymour Duncan SJB -1b & 1n pickups. These are the Vintage models they call Basslines now which include the 2 hot, and the 3(quarter pounder) in this same series of true single coil Jazz pickups. Don’t be fooled… These pickups, while “vintage” single coils are much stronger than any Fender pickup in Mexican and American Jazz basses. DC resistance is 9.2k on neck and 9.5k for the bridge. http://www.seymourduncan.com/products/bass/pickups-for-jaz/4string/sjb1_vintage_fo/
Click on tone chart link on this page and scroll down to Bassline Passive 4 string for Jazz Bass… All specs are there and you can hear and compare to others. I can say this: I went to a few shops and was coming home with a Fender Jazz Bass that day no question. I tried brand new American Standards, MIM & MIJ 60’s, 70’s models, road worn, even a USA ’62 AVRI. I didn’t even know this one had the Duncans in it, I just know it growled it’s way home with me. It really blew away side by side comparisons, A/B ing back n forth. I recently bought a MIJ Fretless Jazz and can’t put it down and before that got a banged up MIM P Bass for super cheap as a back up(also had a Basslines 1/4 pounder in it) and that thing is a beast!!l, I’ve got the power side and finesse side covered. And need the money of course. Brand new Parchment (allparts) pickguard which looks classy in a way… I will include black guard it came with.
Marcus Miller Signature Fender Jazz Bass.
I’m selling my Marcus Miller Signature Fender Jazz Bass. I’ve had it for a few years and it’s in pristine condition. It’s been sitting in my closet for the last year or two and I don’t have the time to play as much as I’d like to. I’ve taken very good care of this bass and it plays / sounds really good. With a new baby here, it’s past the time for me to unload some of my stuff. I’m asking $950 OBO. These MSRP for $1,699 and Guitar Center sells them for $1,199. This is in perfect condition and has active electronics. I’ll include the strap locks I’ve installed, hard “Freedom” case by SKB ($75 value) and a strap (not the strap pictured).
