What Bass Is This??
Hey everyone. I came across a Fender Bass on eBay that I've never seen before... Here's some Pictures:
Some other website Pics:
Apparently (the eBay seller says), it's a Fender Japan Jazz Bass Special 1986-1987. Well, I know what a Fender Japan Jazz Bass Special is; and this isn't one. Unless Fender made some sort of other model of this bass... Maybe? I don't know.
So, is this even a real Fender? Or is it just a really rare Fender? Thanks for the help guys :)
Looks like a Jazz Bass Special to me, just without a painted headstock. What makes you think it isn't one?
Out of curiosity, I checked the ebay ad to see what the model is. I looked at the zoomed-in images of the fretboard and saw a mega-poor de-fret job. Unless you are into chunks of rosewood missing and poorly filled in fret slots, I have to say "Negative, Ghost Rider".
Looks to me like a mid-eighties Jazz Bass Special with a non-original, poorly de-fretted neck. Neck doesn't look right at all... definitely not mid-eighties and maybe not even Fender, but the body looks about right.
EDIT: On second look, the control layout is wrong. J-Bass Specials have a toggle switch. The bass in the add is bogus and probably not Fender at all.
