After playing one of these again a couple years ago, I bought up a bunch of them. I currently have 4. I figured 2 was enough. I am selling a blue-ish turquoise model and a pink-ish model. Both are in really nice shape for their age. I have tried to photograph the dings appropriately. Both are all original, except the blue one has Dunlop strap buttons. Both basses have the higher mass better bridge that came on some of them.
Both weighed around 8.6 to 8.7 on my bathroom scale, which feels pretty close.
I'm not going to go into huge detail about these models as there is a ton of info out there, and I think everyone on TB is quite familiar with them. They are made in Japan. Here's a bit of info I found on the control layout:
Selector Switches: One Black 3 Position Pickup (Neck, Both, Bridge) and One Metal 3 Position Circuit
Controls: 1 Volume (furthest from bridge), 1 Tone, 1 Frequency weep (closest to the bridge)
Output Jack: Body Side
The Fender Power Jazz Bass Special features a unique Active Tone Enhancement (ATE) circuit. which can add low end “pop” or high end “brilliance”. The ATE circuit has three modes: Passive (in which the tone control acts like a standard tone control); Low Frequency Boost; and Midrange Boost.
The Volume control acts just like a regular volume control.
Looking for $540 each shipped CONUS. Each has a gig bag.
