1975 Fender Jazz Bass – Vintage
1975 Fender Jazz Bass. Natural. Fantastic instrument, powerful but also articulate. Plays wonderfully, recently set up at 12th Fret and they did a great job on this one. Strung with D’addario Chromes (flatwounds).
Action is nice and low. I believe frets are original and have plenty of life left. Weighs ~ 10.5 lbs. Body was refinished a long time ago (originally a blonde), probably around the same time the bridge replacement happened. I love this bass but have decided to sell as I have a second jazz and want to focus on playing one bass really well, not choosing which bass to play.
All original except pickups (replacements made by a local builder/winder highly recommended by/carried by 12th Fret – brand is ShakyTone), pickguard, bridge (BadAss II), strap buttons (now Schaller straplocks), and nut (brass).
