    1973 Fender Jazz Bass in excellent condition. Has 4 nicks on it total and are seen in the pictures and video. 100% original except the output jack. I do have the original switcraft output jack. The video below mentioned 1980's Dimarzio pickups but I installed the 1973 Fender pickups back in the bass. The case in good condition with signs of wear and all latches work.. Frets are great, truss rod works fine. Weight is 9 lbs 5 oz on my home scale. It is NOT a 10lb bass like some from the later 1970's. The body is Alder I believe and not Ash.

    Buyer pays $80 shipping. I only charge exact shipping cost and will refund any difference.

    The only trade I would consider would be a Ken Smith 4 or 5 string B.T. body design (maybe BSR but prefer B.T.)

    Are the original pickups in working order or do they need to rewinding?

    How is the neck on this beauty. Any evidence of the bump you get on some old Fenders near where the neck joins the body? Do you have a photo of neck heel stamp? Finally, do you have an accurate weight? Thanks

    I hear it fine, do you mean can you get a recording or video of it? If so, I can probably make one this afternoon when I get home.

    The bass is sold, but to answer your question, they did not come on the bass when I bought it.
