It's general knowledge that the basses Fender built during the seventies were some of their best ever. They were the building blocks for some of the greatest music of all time, and this magnificent 1973 Jazz Bass is absolutely chock-full of that killer bottom end greatness!
In overall Excellent- condition, the lovely Walnut finish highlights the nicely grained Ash body, with the Hard Rock Maple neck contrasting perfectly, and the nickle-silver frets looking almost brand new! Fender were justifiably proud of what they called their "thin neck" bass, as this thing is an absolute delight to play.
All original, with no nasty dings, no repairs, no changed parts, you'll have trouble believing this bass is coming up on forty-five years. There's some buckle-rash on the back, way less playwear on the front than you'd expect, and that fantastic neck again, with the board looking like it left the Fender plant in California only a couple of months ago!
Awesome jazz bass tone
With its solid Ash body, every gram of the not inconsiderable weight is turned to awesome Jazz Bass tone - the tone of hit record after hit record after dizzying live show sound. (The weight is almost literally a hair under 11lb. The addition of a 20c coin tipped our digital guitar scales from just under to just over 11lb)
The most common Jazz Bass colors in the early seventies were Sunburst, Black and White, with far smaller numbers finished in Walnut, which only adds to the already great desirability here. Complete with its original hard shell case, (see pic # 8 and right), this is a rare opportunity to snare yourself one of the best basses ever built.
