    This is a feeler for sale only - definitely no trades!

    Vintage 77/78 Fender Jazz Bass, very nice condition, all original parts, original natural finish, bound and blocked neck - get your Marcus on! Plays and sounds great, no technical issues.

    A few minor nicks and dings and swirls, the only substantial one is photographed. Frets have plenty of life, truss rod works. OHSC also in great shape. Weight is 9.9 lbs. on bathroom scale with covers off.

    [DEL]$2500[/DEL] [DEL]$2400[/DEL] $2300 shipped and insured. Remember - no trades please.

    Here are the pics:

    The S8 is indicative of 78'

    It is my understanding that fender would use parts from prior years in later bass' but if I were to guess it'd be a late 77 or early 78.

    Bump for a great bass and seller. I live in the area and actually just had a look at this bass last night. This is one classy jazz bass, well kept, in very nice condition. It's got the funk!

    So is the routing on the neck pickup and neck pocket. I also have a 78. Love it except for these two details. Awesome neck however!!

    Great bass!!
