    1998 Fender Jazz Bass Deluxe V - MIM - Suhr Era! Audere Preamp Upgrade

    What can I say, these are some of the best basses Fender put out in the 90's! These Suhr-era big pole piece pickups are AMAZING! The bass body has some very lovely subtle flame going on, which looks great under the 3 tone sunburst. I noticed a slight ding in the paint on the back towards the tummy cut, plus the headstock as the normal wear/tear of an older bass. Bass was recently setup at my local shop with Ernie Ball Super Slinky rounds.

    Specs:
    - Alder Body
    - Maple neck with rosewood fretboard
    - White Dot inlays
    - Gotoh Tuners
    - Stock bridge and neck pickups - SUHR!
    - Electronics replaced (they didn't work and sounded horrid) with an amazing Audere preamp with passive tone
    - 3 –Color Sunburst finish
    - Dunlop Dual Design straplocks
    - No bag or case included, will be packed very safely and insured
    - Weight: 10lbs


    PRICE: $650 shipped to the CONUS only

    NO TRADES

    NO RETURNS

    Sweet rig. Is that the Audere 3B with passive tone? Great preamp. I have that in this exact bass but from the later Bill Lawrence era.

    GLWTS!

    Yep! No Z mode, added passive tone - perfect match for these Suhr pickups.

    I had a few Suhr era jazz basses. Those pups are the best ever put in a jazz, imho.

    I love them, someday I'll get a 4 string like this. They are amazing with the Audere preamp too!

    Agreed. I used to have the 4-string version of this bass. I still regret selling it.
