    Really nice and rare sunburst jazz bass with nice Patina.

    Has original pickguard and thumbrest (not pictured, in great shape)

    Neck is straight with plenty of relief on it. Have it set up and plays well above the 12th fret. Below the 12 fret has some decent fret buzz that im not able to get rid of. One fret down there (pictured) is bent or coming unglued, this could be the cause of it. Need possible fret leveling, or maybe new frets.

    This bass with all new frets would be valued conservatively at $1600, so im selling for $1300 plus shipping to give $300 for fret/neck repair. Ive seen these sell as high as $1900 in similar condition. You could get lucky and get it fixed for much cheaper, but you'll have enough in the tank for all new frets, giving this bass a new lease on life. I dont have the time or cash to invest to get it fixed.

    Get a great bass for the lowest price you will ever find. All parts are original.

    Fret issue... time to get the butter knife, a la Jaco. Love the wear, GLWS!
     
  3. Yeah, was thinking this could make a great "bass of doom" project.

    As for the wear, part of me thinks some pone tried to "relic" this thing.

    Yeah, didn't think about making this into a fretless, but another good option!

    Bass sounds amazing, have pics of neck pocket will post later.

    Sale fell through, still available. Had it checked out needs a $80 fret level on higher frets to be in perfect playable condition.
