    Hello!

    For sale, 2008 Fender Jaguar bass (photos below). MIJ, excellent condition, with two extremely small (match-head size) surface dings (see photos). Three-tone sunburst finish, rosewood fingerboard, block inlays. Stock passive/active electronics. Tort pickguard. Stock pickups and hardware, except for a Hipshot Xtender on the E string that I bought and installed. Straplocks. Bolt-on neck, skunk stripe, frets are in great shape, currently strung with Fender medium light flats. Comes with a Fender gig bag, although there is a little external wear down where the bag meets the floor when vertical. [DEL]$660.00 [/DEL] $600.00, includes standard FedEx or UPS ground shipping within CONUS. Paypal, please.

    I have owned this bass for little over a year and it has never left my smoke-free, air conditioned house. Sounds great, plays great, and the active low-end roll-up will have the neighbors behold their knickknacks plummeting from the shelves. However, the situation for which I bought this bass devolved and I’m not playing it anymore. I’d rather pass this on to someone who’ll play it rather than let it sit abandoned, and I can invest the money into required instrumental avenues.

    Way Under-priced for such an amazing bass.

    Forgot to mention that included is a Dunlop strap, the original Fender tuning key, and a set of Dean Markley roundwound strings (if wanted).

    Thanks, Joe, but I'm just looking to thin the herd and an EHX POG2 doesn't fit into my plans. Appreciate the offer, though!

    Any chance of selling just the loaded body?

    Hi, NYCB,

    Thanks for the post.

    You mean sell it sans neck? I see you are building a Custom Jaguar and thus you might already have a neck. However, I prefer to just sell the entire bass outright rather than have to try to sell a neck on its own. That's something you could do, though!

    I agree, good-looking bass! Plays well, sounds great. Just waiting for a good home so, yes, come on back in a week or two and check.
