    Fender Jazz Bass 1963 stripped natural

    Pre-CBS Jazz Bass in perfect working condition, body and head stripped to natural. No issues !

    - Original curved Rosewood board with clay dot markers (one clay dot missing)
    - Original sunburst colour has been stripped to natural (full neck and body, lousy job by the way))
    - All-original hardware
    - Original pickups with correct maroon wire, strong output
    - Original electronics (codes from 63), original Bakelite knobs
    - Truss rod works perfect, truss rod screw still flush with the neck end and obviously barely used
    - Perfect straight neck, no ramp on the upper 5 frets
    - Neck stamp 7 Apr 63 A
    - pot codes 304-6320
    - Original tortoise four-ply pickguard
    - Original Pickup covers with small holes and correct screws
    - Original fingerrest
    - Serial L05xxx
    - Weight: less than 4kg
    - Frets seem to be original, but they are in very good condition, which might be subject to discussions due to the age and the usage of the bass. IF it has been refretted - this was a great fret job.

    The bass plays and sounds like a charme - as you would expect from a very very good pre-CBS. It is in every single attribute a wonderful example of early Fenders.

    Detail pics on request. Please serious buyers only - no picture grabbers...
