5 strings just aren't meant to be for me. I guess it is true...you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I think it's a patience thing. 2013 USA Fender Jazz V, it is so mint that it still has the plastic, not only on the pickguard but also still on the tuning keys. It's just about exactly 2 months old. This bass has only a handful of hours on her, she's never left the house. Absolutely pristine condition, no marks or swirls at all, dead mint in every way. Black with maple board and ohsc with all unopened case candy. Also comes with a full set of Dunlop strings and if it gets here in time, a brand new OEM Fender black pickguard. If it doesn't come before sale then I will forward it to the buyer free of charge. The only issue is the case, there is a crack in one of the corners. It in no way hinders the functionality of the case and other than that it is in excellent condition. So, if you are looking for one of these, save yourself about 500.00. This one is as good as you will get brand new from any store. Asking 1050.00 shipped to CONUS only. ABSOLUTELY NO TRADES!
