    Fender Custom Shop 1960 Jazz Bass Relic (Stacked Knob)













    • Daphne Blue nitrocellulose finish
    • Lightweight alder body (8.9lbs total weight)
    • Quarter-sawn maple neck
    • Dark rosewood fretboard
    • 9.5" radius
    • Vintage frets
    • 60 Jazz Bass "U" neck shape
    • Bone nut
    • Vintage hardware
    • Stack knob
    • 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard
    • Includes case, Custom Shop leather strap, certificate of authenticity, cable, covers, etc.
    Have to sell all but one of my basses due to an unexpected freak heart condition. Dark rosewood, frets are perfect, action is quite low (0.010 @ 7th) and the truss rod nut is flush with the neck heel. Strung with 12 year old TI JF344 flats, its feel and playability is unmatched.

    Price is firm, priced to sell. Can't entertain trades at this time. PayPal. ConUS only.

    Thanks for your interest!

    I never understood the appeal of old fenders (especially FCS relics), until I acquired these two. They are the old favorite pair of jeans...just feel them and you'll never want to play anything else! The jazz has darker rosewood, thinner profile and more diverse/better sounding (IMO) than the Pino. And, $1000 less. Last bass in my won't regret it!

    p.s. I've gotten several inquiries about the strings. Yes, they are 12 years old- TI Jazz flats off my (former) Fullerton precision (2005).

    I don't have the funds for your beautiful Jazz, but wanted to chime in to wish you well with your medical issues. I know it can be scary stuff. We're thinking about you here on TB!

    Thanks!!! I got off with minimally invasive surgery last month. Double whammy with a T1 diabetes diagnosis on Memorial Day. Superman days are over, but I'm not dead yet! Hard to liquidate a rack of gorgeous basses, but it can always be worse!

    That slab of maple for the neck is exquisite. Beautiful grain!

    I stumbled upon your ad browsing the ads (which I have no business doing :). May I say you have a nice looking instrument there! I am looking to buy a piano for my kid, otherwise, I'd be making you an offer.
    Hopefully, you'll adjust to your new circumstances and thrive. Your training as a musician has taught you perseverance and
    I have no doubt you'll deal with these new challenges. You might even consider it lucky some day if - in the unlikely event - this beauty doesn't sell.

    That bass is killer. The color is amazing. The road wear is perfect (not too over-the-top). The wood grain in the neck is tight and even. Someone needs to buy this!

    Hang in there! I'm a T1D for the last 10 years. If you ever need any help or advice, feel free to reach out. It's a pain the in butt, but you can manage it! I wish I could swing the funds for this bass to help out.

    Thanks! Finally getting things under control. A1C down from 14.2 to 6.5. Still getting used to the $425/mo in dexcom, omnipod, insulin, strips, all that fun stuff. Money that would have been spent on things like bass gear...:(

    Don't even get me started on the cost!! I don't use a dexcom, but my pump supplies and strips are killing me. Maybe will give the dexcom a try when they come out with the g6 early next year. I use the tandem pump, so it will work with the dexcom.

    Congrats on the AWESOME A1C.
