About This Listing

A beautiful 1978 Fender Jazz Bass in black, made in the original Fender factory in Fullerton, CA, USA.

Fantastic playability with a thin neck, the bass is currently wearing Elixir strings, set up with a low action. Original pickups and electronics that boast that distinctive Jazz Bass tone.

 In great condition considering it's age, just some rust on the screws, a tiny nick taken out of the paint next to the control plate, and some checking on the finish, but that gives it a little bit of character. 

Structurally the bass is fine, no cracks or big scratches.

 70's Jazz Basses can be identified by having the "bullet" truss rod, 3 bolt "micro tilt" neckplate, thumb rest on the left (rather than right on the 60's models), and for some of them, that distinctive maple and pearl blocks combo on the fretboard.

  • Body: Northern Ash
  • Neck: Maple
  • Fretboard: Maple w/ white binding
  • Inlays: Pearloid Block
  • Nut Width: 1.5" (38mm)
  • Width at 12th fret: 2.28" (58mm)
