    For sale my all original 1983 Fullerton RI Jazz Bass in the rarest custom finish Olympic White (the only one I have ever seen in the flesh or even for sale). The OW nitro has naturally faded to "banana" white. For those who don't know Fullerton RIs, this is basically like a PreCBS Jazz, only 20 years younger. Built by the same guys (a bit older then, hehehe) using the same machines, at the Fullerton plant. I have a 1962 Jazz and honestly this is the closest Fender you get to the holy grails. The natural relic on this bass is the most beautiful I have ever seen. The contours are just EXACTLY like a PreCBS's. Everything works fine of course. Weight is 4,2 Kg on bathroom scales. Perfectly balanced as well.

    Comes with OHSC, and unopen bag with original unused covers and string mutes.

    Don't know if your into 6-strings ?
    I have a Stambaugh Designs take on Anthony Jacksons Presentation II Bass.
    It is 34" scale.
    20 frets
    Red alder Body
    Holly Wood top-Matching head-stock.
    Old growth Blackwood fingerboard
    5-pc. Ash-flame maple neck.
    Hip-shot tuners & hardware.
    Custom Areo pickup.
    The wood alone cost over $1000.00 on this bass
    Pickup was $400.00.
    It is three months old in mint condition, only played about 10 hours. Never left my house.
    I waited almost a year for this to be completed.

    Maple neck-Brazilian Rosewood Fingerboard.
    Bass is 31.5" scale 20 frets.
    Single lip-stick pickup (Neck position )
    It is big, fat, defined. tone. It kills a Hofner. Great old school tone.
