About This Listing

Up for sale, a 1994 Fender '75 vintage reissue Jazz Bass in excellent condition and in perfect working order. One of the rarest upscale Jazz Bass models made exclusively for the Japanese domestic market (and now discontinued), this "Made in Japan" model was produced in the famed Fujigen factory and features a bound maple fretboard with pearl block inlay. Weighing a particularly hearty 11lbs 1oz with a solid ash body, there's a strong fundamental punch and sustain to the tone. The low end is thick and focused and the midrange has a meaty character, balanced by the inherent articulation and note attack of the maple fretboard. There's a growl and clarity to the bridge pickup, while the neck position single coil delivers more roundness and broad thump with the Tone knob rolled back. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Jazz Bass is strung with 45-105 roundwound strings and has been dialed in for optimal action and intonation.

The one-piece maple neck offers a medium C profile carve at the nut, with lots of shoulder in every register, tapering deeper up the fretboard and measuring .845" at the 1st fret and 1.101" at the 12th. The bound rosewood fretboard has flawless medium jumbo frets, and the nut measures 1 1/2" in width.  There is a small professionally repaired split between the nut and 1st fret inlay from previous overtightening of the truss rod. The rod is responsive and the neck is straight. The headstock features tuners with vintage-spec full-size baseplates, clover buttons, and light uniform surface patina, as well as a block Jazz Bass logo with N prefix serial number.
All of the electronics work as they should, and the chrome hardware and plastic parts are quite clean. Microscopic "Made in Japan" script is also present above the three-bolt chrome F neck plate. Cosmetic wear includes light buckle rash on the back, one scuff at the treble side waist, some light finish scratches on the back of the body horns, and a few additional ancillary marks on the body as a whole. The neck profile has a smooth gloss finish with wear limited to just a couple tiny nicks.

A gigbag is included.
