What a great idea! A Fender Jazz Bass and a Fender Precision bass on the same instrument! A 3 way switch selects between P bass and J bass. The middle position has ALL pickups on and the pan knob allows you to go from neck pickup plus P to the bridge pickup plus P. All of this mated with an active cut and boost on bass, mid and treble. This was Fender’s TOP bass and their first signature model. With the same craftsmanship and care as their Custom shop, this was their flagship model during this era.
I have been playing 5 string bass almost exclusively and am starting to go through my 4 string bass guitars that are just sitting and not getting played. I have had a complete pro setup on this bass including “dressing and leveling the frets”, new strings (D’Addario Nickel wrapped) and complete intonation and action setup. Other than 1 very small nick on the headstock (I marked the area on the photo), this bass is as close to brand new as you will ever find. NO scratches or belt rash, no chips on the bottom edges, etc.
Serial number seems to indicate that it was made in 2007 and has the drop D tuner. The advertised price was $2740. The bass plays and sounds fantastic. If this bass was made in a 5 string configuration, I would never let it go. It weighs in at 8.3 pounds (bathroom scale subtractive method). I will include a deluxe Fender (G and G) case that is virtually brand new. (I always used a gig bag). $1150---------PRICE DROP, now $1100 and that includes the shipping cost.
