    78’ Jazz Bass Sale or Trade

    EXC. Early 1978’ Jazz Bass. 9/10
    100% original (chrome covers are RI but cover screws are original)
    Includes 78’ OHSC and Original Strap.
    Serial # has this as a 77' or early 78'. Pots are stamped May 78'.

    Straight neck, low action, truss works, excellent intonation.
    Frets have little wear. Sound is truly huge and musical.
    Aged nitro darkening/yellowing spots on the nut, neck,and the neck binding.

    No major dings, blems or otherwise.
    I don’t have a proper scale here, but this bass is 11 lbs. fully dressed (bathroom scale 5/24/2020)
    Disclaimer: I did put a small piece of neoprene rubber under each pickup to adjust height. I did not remove the original foam, but it is too stiff to function.

    $3300 trade/cash value on TB. But depends/flexible on what you have to offer.+/- $ either way. Trade + Cash offer is OK. Reasonable easy seller, not a dealer or collector, just a player (100s of feedback/professional references outside of TB over 20 years) Thank you.

    Trade interests:
    Fretless 4 or 5
    Vintage Music Man Stingrays / Sabre
    Linn LM2 Drum Machine
    Feel free to run anything by me particularly vintage rack gear.

    Wow, that is pristine. Same color scheme as my 75, but mine has been quite naturally relic'd =) GL!
