    Im looking at buying a Fender custom shop NOS '64 Jazz from 2009. How was the quality of them at that time? It would have to be shipped to me from out of state. My biggest reservation about this one is that is comes in at 9.5lbs. While not excessively heavy, it is heavier than most of these Ive seen that were sub 9 lbs. Thanks

    I am no expert, but I have not heard of any bad Fender CS basses. For perspective, not too long ago, a 9.5lb. Jazz would have been considered light.

    ^Agreed. If the price is somewhat right, I say go for it. The few Custom Shop Fenders I've been around have been VERY nice, extremely well-made instruments.

    When were the NOS models made? I don't see them in their current lineup. This one has no relicing other than some aging toner in the lacquer. Its Olympic White. I dont care for the relic'd ones. I do like the slightly yellowed color though.
