    Hi,
    So there was a club started a few years ago but it has died off. It didn't come up in my search, however, and I forgot that it existed so I started my thread which you are reading right now.

    2010 50th Anniversary Fender Jazz Club

    Then I found it. :bored: So now I might as well continue it here and update it as needed.

    I own one of these lovely basses. I was lucky enough to find one last year for a very reasonable price in very good condition. I have verified with Fender that they made exactly 772 of these. I swapped out the white pick guard for an aged white pearloid guard. Anyway here's pics of mine.

    The last shot is with my Adam Clayton Jazz Bass. I think they look pretty good together.
    Anyway, if you wanna join I think you must own or have owned one, so post pics and don't forget to request a number.

    The only real criticism I have about this bass is the high gloss finish on the back of the neck. If this had the satin finish neck like on the Adam Clayton, for instance, it would be perfect IMHO. drool

    I wish I had a matching P bass.

    They're both beautiful! For the 50th Anniversary Jazz, a little Scotch-Brite will knock the finish right down. I did it to a 70's Reissue MIJ Jazz and an Epiphone Jack Casady Bass, and it worked great.

    I was on the Fender site looking at bass diagrams but can't seem to find one on there for this bass. Anyone know where I might find it?
    Something along the lines of this:

    Pretty cool. Would be interested in that too.

    Might as well request a number for the club now. 20, I like round numbers (thanks). I bought mine in 2011 I think it was, new. I posted this photo somewhere on the forum before, but here it is again.

    The Ampeg mini stack... the cab's alright, but the amp just stopped working after a year or two. It never left the house, and I didn't even play it much, nor loud. Well, I guess Chinese factory stuff just doesn't cut it.

    image.jpeg Missed this thread earlier, so I'm late on the bandwagon, but here's mine, acquired late 2010.

    Any other owners out there? I've spotted Adam Clayton of U2 playing one, as well as Ted Dwane of Mumford and Sons...
