    Hey everyone, thought I would stop in and show off my newest bass. This is a very rare beast.
    How rare, I'm still not sure, but I have heard from one guy that there were as little as 45 of these produced. Here's what I know for sure. It is an American made FSR (Factory Special Run) from Fender Jazz Bass made exclusively for Guitar Center in 2001. According to the aforementioned source, along with this were 50 Matching Telecasters and 50 Strats. It features a Rosewood fretboard, Graphite reinforced Maple neck, Black speacial Laminate Headstock, and Custom Shop Silver Sparkle Paint. It truely is a beautiful Instrument, and plays like butter!

    That may be the coolest Fender Jazz I've seen. Definitely got the most bling!

    Play much disco music?







    :bag:
    :D

    Honestly, that is a very interesting looking bass! And if it is a very limited run, it should be worth a chunk of change more than the rest of the basses produced that year.

    That's a pretty crazy finish. The body makes me think disco and the neck makes me think 80's hard rock, I'm so conflicted.

    Exclusive to GC? I'm pretty sure Long & McQuade had this model in Canada.
