    Price drop!!!

    Starting to get rid of basses I just don't play. Here's a Fender Jazz Bass Special in metallic green, all original, in very good to great condition. A few dimples, the largest of which I've shown in detail under the G string. There's also some paint damage at the heel of the neck where it looks like somebody tried to adjust the truss rod. OHSC included, which is in fair condition- case strap is broken, but all latches work fine.

    Asking $[DEL]650[/DEL] $600 shipped to CONUS.

    Thanks

    It's the color - if it was white or black it would be gone already.

    Someone will be very happy with this, though as they're great basses. GLWTS bump.

    Nice bass! If I didn't already own one I'd be all over this. Those 80s MIJ are real players, worth every penny.
     
  11. Any trades?
     
  12. Original frets? How is the wear?

    thanks!

    Hi. I believe the frets are original with mild fret wear. Sorry, not interested in trades

    Confirmed mild fret wear (sorry, I was at work when I responded).
