    1997 Fender Deluxe Jazz 5 string bass, made in the USA. Owned by a drummer/guitarist who left it here after moving to NYC, so it's essentially been safe in it's case, hardly played. Action is nice, straight neck, and very tonally flexible thanks to the active electronics. Good solid Fender Jazz sound, and excellent playability.

    * Maple Neck w/ Rosewood fb
    * Gotoh Inline 5 Tuners
    * Heavy Duty Bridge w/ string thru option

    Very nice finish.
    I would pop for it if I didn't own one of the same year:)

    I was actually pretty surprised on the B. Much less floppy than I expected, but of course floppier than the typical MTD or Sadowsky. Tone is there though, so if you just lighten your touch it's definitely usable. Great action for the dough. The frets are in really good shape, so that helps too.
