    I had huge plans for this bass, and all of them fell through, so I'm returning to my first love, which is fretless, which, really, is probably the path I should've been taking anyway.

    So it goes.

    Up for sale/trade is a lovely 2010 Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass. It looks exactly like the one here.

    For those of you who don't want to click through to Fender's site:

    - Rosewood Fingerboard, 3-Color Sunburst, 3-Ply B/W/B Pickguard
    - Body: alder, finished in urethane
    - Neck: maple (Gloss Urethane Front, Satin Urethane Back)
    - Neck Shape: Modern "C"
    - Bound Fingerboard
    - Rosewood fingerboard
    - 21 frets
    - White Pearloid Block inlays

    Pickups are Noiseless N3 single-coil jazz wired to a 3-band preamp. Controls are:
    - volume
    - blend
    - stacked bass and treble
    - stacked mid and passive tone
    - active passive switch

    Lots of other nice features like the high-mass bridge, the string retainer on the A string, etc. etc.

    Update Weight: 9.2 lbs. on my digital scale.

    I've added a matching Hipshop Detuner, but if you don't want that I'll happily swap it out for the original and deduct $40 from the price.

    There's a bit of finish wear on the front bottom edge of the lower bout just under the pickguard and a nick in the back, both of which I'll photograph.

    Action is set pretty low and can go lower. Currently strung with D'Addario tapewounds, which might be my new favorite string. I don't know the frequency centers on the preamp and Fender isn't telling, but overall I find the preamp to be nicely voiced. There's a volume jump when the preamp is engaged, but I never got the feeling that to live with the bass long-term I would need to change out the pre like I have with some of Fender's past efforts. I could happily play this for the rest of my life as-is...if I wasn't driven by a mad need to play fretless.

    Asking $1250 shipped in the Fender TSA-approved case.

    Thanks,
    J.

    Not sure if yours is the same specs as my 2012 version, but if it is, you did not mention a compound radius fret board, double acting truss rod, and carbon fiber reinforcing rods.

    See clarification below...figured I'd leave a little something to be discovered by those who clicked through to Fender's website.

    2010-present are the same basses....but they dont have compound radius fretboard...I am pretty sure the only one that does is the selects as it goes from 9.5 to 14'.....the deluxes just are 9.5'
    Great necks on these! I had a 2010 and I never adjusted the truss rod once! So rock stable! I kinda wish I didnt sell it now!

    Adding pics of the imperfections. I might be able to polish out the rough patch on the lower horn.
