    You don't have to be a Duff McKagan fan (which I am) to appreciate the MIJ Fender Jazz Bass Special. This bass is a winner! Looks and sounds terrific. Something about those pickups and the TBX control brings it home big time.

    Precision Bass body shape with a Jazz Bass profile neck and a P/J pickup configuration. The pickups are passive with volume/volume/TBX (tone) controls and a 3-way pickup selector. The TBX tone control is a special pot that cuts either treble or bass instead of a normal tone pot, which cuts only treble.

    All controls work as designed. Electronics appear unmolested.

    Weight: 8.5 lbs

    Some minor buckle rash on the back, but not much. Otherwise looks absolutely great.

    Based on photos in multiple other listings I believe the case is original but I'm not certain. It's a Fender case and the bass fits great. One latch is not working.

    Includes shipping via FedEx Ground in the continental U.S. only.

    Thanks for looking!

    Maybe only MIA serials were this way, but usually E9XXXX meant 1989
