    1974 Fender Jazz Bass. Light (9 bs) and in great shape. This is a no issues bass, everything works, everything matches. It is missing both covers, but has OHSC. Asking $2550 shipped. PayPal ok. I'm not desperate to move this one, but reasonable offers will be considered. Vintage basses considered for trade, can add cash for the right axe.

    Yes, all original. "Everything matches" means that the pickups, pots, serial number and other items commonly used as date-indicators all match up properly.

    Nice bass, but that should be a mid '75 at best. That's when Fender started the 3 bolt neck on the Jazz bass. The pots may be earlier, but that's not uncommon.

    "Fender also switched to the three-bolt neck "micro-tilt adjustable" neck and the "bullet" truss rod in mid-to-late 1975."

    I love it! And in my favorite color with maple neck. GLWS
  15. According to "The Fender Bass: an Illustrated History," page 64, the three-bolt was introduced in late'74.
