    I'm going to regret this one...

    Always wanted mid-'60s Fender but know very little about the vintage market. This was my way of having that vintage look and tone without drama. As with all recent FSR's, Fender nailed this one. Neck is comfortable, sleek and feels great. Tone is 100% vintage. Fit and finish are remarkable (take note to the dual cream and white binding).

    Bass is in new condition, maybe has 2-3 hours of play time on it and never left my studio. No marks of any sort. Fender strap lock buttons were installed, originals are included. Comes with original Fender deluxe gig bag. Limited production (132 made for North America), Made in Japan. Pickguard has factory holes for a thumb rest and cover. Weighs 9.4 lbs. Asking $925 shipped CONUS or best offer. Paypal is fine. International buyers welcome, please PM me for a shipping quote.

    I am in the UK and have one of these basses and they are stunning. They sound amazing and play beautiful. Someone is going to get a cracking bass.

    They are also very very rare. I don't suppose you know what the pickups are in them? All I could find out was vintage style but not sure if this is Fender Custom shop 60's or other.

    Good luck with the sale.

    Thanks Linus. Yes, this one of Fender's better models. I don't belief the pickups are the CS '60s, instead Fender calls them "Vintage Japan Jazz Bass Single Coil". No idea what that means but they sound great.

    No worries, they are amazing basses. I wonder if the Vintage Japan pickups are the JB VINTAGE (USA) ones as sold on some of the other Japan Fender Jazz basses or if they are something else? Either way, they do sound great.

    Nice! What is the body wood? I know a lot of MIJs are basswood. Also, did Fender use blocks and binding on 66 jazzes?

    This is a 2013 model and features an alder body.

    Sorry, can't answer the question on real '66 basses. I'm not savvy on vintage models.

    Yes, there are a few years when u get the more 70s looking blocks and binding combined with the 60s headstock logo(classy if u ask me),and pickup spacing. A few years later they went to the bigger more disco lookin curved fender jazz logo. That white painted headstock logo combined with the 60s logo is off the hook. I can't quit lookin at it!!!!

    Gorgeous! I must admit I did not know that this model existed.
    Its a longshot, but does anyone know how the pickups/electronics compare to the FSR Jazz that was sold at Guitar Center a while back?
