    Fender American Elite Jazz Bass (Tobacco Sunburst)
    Ash body, Maple neck/fingerboard
    OHSC, Truss/Allen wrench, Manuals, Straplocks
    $1,450 PayPal shipped lower 48

    Originally purchased from Sweetwater on October 20, 2016. Includes everything original, hard-shell case, etc. Pictures from Sweetwater are of the actual bass. Buyer's address must be confirmed on PayPal.

    Bass is in the same condition it was when I received it from Sweetwater aside from one thing -- I immediately put Fender "pure nickel" roundwound strings on it, instead of the nickel-plated steel ones that come from the factory. They are a little warmer, but they actually combine well with the single-coil pups. I primarily put them on because they lessen fret wear.

    It has less than 8 hours of total playtime on it, and has never been gigged. There are no noticeable dings or scratches I can find. I am fairly anal, especially about quality control, and I've often sent new instruments back to retailers for even very superficial issues. I also picked this one out of a lineup, so it has the grain I felt looked "most natural." I will not say it is "new" because I don't believe anything personally owned can be called "new," despite the time frame of ownership. It has been stored in a smoke-free and climate controlled recording studio.

    Please use private message to contact me.

    Thank you for reading.

    These are really great basses. Great fretwork, super stable neck. Fender upped their game with the Elite Jazz.
