    Here is a 1972 Fender Jazz Bass I got for a while. I bought it in person after playing it for a few minutes.
    It feels great, sounds fat and punchy and has the most wonderful neck with lowest action I've seen on a vintage Fender.

    Non original parts are: Tuners, bridge (but have original), all pots, aged refinished

    The previous owner had installed EMG's pickups and routed the body to fit the 9v battery (please see picture of the rout - it was professionally done)

    Bonus: Sadowsky Outboard preamp

    So again, this bass plays flawless and has super low action and a killer tone. Plus a good weight at 9 lbs 5oz


    May trade for a 5 string jazz style bass. DSC_6935.

    You are killing me with this.

    And I already drove to your place to pick up an early-70s Jazz!!!

    I don't think I can swing another... but those blocks!

    Aargh...

    GLWTS!

    This Geddy Lee maple neck will go well with your killer rosewood jazz bass.

    Thanks,

    Whoa that's one of my dream basses...so the previuos owner installed EMGs, but it's currently sporting the original pickups? Finish looks amazing

    I had a Black (with white pick guard) 72 Jazz bass and sold it for $400 in the early 90's. :rollno::crying: I wish that I would have had the foresight to hang onto it (as well as my yellowish/cream colored 76 Ric)...
