What we got here is a American Vintage reissue 2013 model 64 jazz bass. The link for pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jochem...7641766367085/
The model is here http://www.fender.com/series/america...e-placid-blue/
and has been discussed extensively in this forum. Thin and fast neck. Weight (without the covers) around 8.7 lbs or so. Sounds really good with the thin nitro coat. I would have liked to hang on to it, but I have no use for it now and got something else in, so it has to go.
I got this bass in a trade and it got a bit banged up in transit, while Fender's workmanship on it left something to be desired too. It has a thin nitro coat that will get dinged up if you look at it, so to speak... I tried to show all the current nicks and dings in the pics, you can trust this bass to become naturally relic'ed rather quickly.
NY luthier Mas Hino did a full setup with all-around screw tightening, and a fret leveling to correct a very slight ski-jump in the neck (quite common with Fenders, as you all know). The best thing is how it sounds: full and fat and very much alive - in Mas' words: "You got lucky; this is a good one" and I agree. In my view this is a bass for flatwounds (due to the radius amongst others) and it is wearing a fairly new set of Labella flats right now.
All in a great playing and sounding bass, and probably a better playing instrument than you'd get brand new. Comes with original case and all the candy. Asking $1300 shipped CONUS per Paypal. Not looking for trades at this point.
