    I've really enjoyed playing this bass and had no plans to sell till an opportunity to purchase an amazing 75 Jazz bass (not reissue) suddenly appeared. Not usually a fan of the relic'd thing but putting that aside everything else about this bass is great.

    It's super lightweight at 8 lbs 4 oz, has the US made Pure Vintage pickups and the stacked tone and volume setup. Really wish more basses had that feature. So many more tone options. Also they did a great job on the neck profile - feels just perfect for 4 string jazz.

    Recent setup and strings. Includes Fender gig bag, hang tags and case candy.

    $900 shipped and No trades.

    I’m the 2nd owner. The original owner added it to make it look more like a real 61 jazz

    Any neck dive - standing or seated, with or without strap? thanks!

    No.

    And since you asked, I tested it out. Standing with a strap, the bass is nicely balanced and hangs straight - no neck dive. And none without a strap since I had to hold it with 2 hands ;)

    Sitting without a strap is not really a fair measure since when you sit, the bass is typically balancing on your right leg and that tends to throw off the balance. Even more so if you're not wearing a strap.

    For comparison, I did the same test with a couple of other basses I have and would say the Flea bass is much more balanced than the others I tested.

    LOL about standing with no strap. And thanks for checking. Pet peeve of mine to need to support the neck with my fretting hand when standing (almost always with a strap ) I agree about balance when sitting.

    Haha yeah sure no problem. Great bass, nicely balanced, so comfortable to play. Wish I could keep it but GAS getting the best of me.
