Up for sale is a nice vintage '69-75 (4-bolt) Fender Jazz Bass neck with the original ferrule bushings.
Maple w/ rosewood board, white binding, pearl blocks.
Original finish and original headstock decal.
This necks plays very well and has no playability or structural issues.
Nice finish checking on the headstock (see pic).
No extra screw holes.
It is straight and sets up well with nice action.
Truss rod functions fine.
Nice condition - just the normal knicks, dings and scratches that a 40 year old neck would have. Nothing very deep. The back of the neck feels nice.
1.5" @ the nut.
Medium-thin profile, very fast and very comfy.
This neck has been re-fretted and the frets have very minor wear with tons of life left.
The nut was also replaced and the binding was cut around the new nut (see pics).
A little chunk of the rosewood board chipped off behind the last fret (right above the truss rod). Looks like someone probably tried to adjust the truss rod with the neck installed and slipped with the screwdriver. It is cosmetic only and does not affect the way it plays or how the truss rod functions.
The neckstamp is not legible so it was made somewhere between 1969 and 1975 since it has the "TV" headstock logo (post '69) and they went to the 3-bolt system in '75. It has a very faint "C. Regalado" inspection stamp on the underside of the heel (a Fender employee who's stamp in very common on early '70s necks).
That's about all I can think of to say about it. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
In 100% original condition, these necks go for $1100-1200+ on ebay, so I priced this one at less than half that. $495 Shipped
