    I am selling a 1972 Fender Jazz Bass for $2,200.00. I have original chrome hardware. The bass is Natural color and has some checking on it. The bass is Ash and weights around 10 pounds. I talked to Chicago Music Exchange about the checking and they verified that it is common with these types of basses at this age. I bought this bass from GGuitars in Connecticut two years ago who sold it as an original 1972 Fender Jazz. At that time the bass had a Bad Ass Bridge which has been replaced recently with its original bridge. The bass comes with its original Fender hard shell case. This bass sounds amazing. If you are looking for that classic funk (slap, finger) this is it. Avishai Cohen plays a (similar) 72 J Bass (his has a maple board) so if you are looking for a sound reference then this is it: ). He also noted that the pot pick up number was 13791.

    Is the guard original ?

    If so this would be the 1st Jazz bass from that period in natural, that I have seen.

    I had a 72 in Oly Wht with a tortoise guard, however

    All naturals from that year I have seen had black or white guards...interesting:meh:

    Well.. this one time.. at band camp..
    Natural was an option from the factory in 72, but much more common in the mid and late 70s. The pickguard would be tortoise or white at that time. Black wasn't offered till late 74 or so.
