FS:Fender Jazz Bass Special Fretless
Up for sale is my mid-80's Black Jazz Bass Special Fretless. This bass was originally a fretted model that was converted and professionally set up by Paul Unkert a/k/a "The Guitar Guy" in Toms River, NJ. Absolutely fantastic tone, super comfy neck that plays like buttah! Body has some minor wear, but nothing that affects playability. Comes with the original hard shell case.
*Sorry, I don't have any pics yet...will post them soon!

Yes. When I had the conversion done I asked the luthier to tint the material he used to fill the fret slots to a "coffee" color instead of the normal white. It just looks so much better with the rosewood board, and the lines are still visible for reference.

Color? Is the back of the neck painted black?

The color is black. The back of the neck is not painted.
I will have pics up today.

Sounds like a nice bass. I was wondering if it was expensive to convert from a fretted to fretless bass?
|harpdude ||01-11-2014 09:58 AM |
Thanks. It cost $175 for the conversion and setup back in 1994.

How's the weight?
|harpdude ||01-15-2014 06:50 AM |
It is really light and comfortable. Between 7-8 pounds. A big thing for me because I have neck and shoulder issues and need a lighter bass (my main bass is a fretted JBS).
