    UPDATE 2-25-20 - SOLD ! My thanks to all who posted, PM'd. liked, or viewed.

    Fender USA Elite Jazz V
    – Metallic Ocean Turquoise, Alder, Ebony, Blocks/Binding – brand new – light 9.8 lbs.! See full specs from Fender website at bottom below photos.

    Brand new perfect condition – still with all original plastic protective covering in place on pickguard, stickers/tags, neck/bridge adjustment wrenches, all case candy, etc.
    This one’s never been gigged or left my home – and has only seen a few hours of home play use when initially received. Original purchase price was $2150 + tax.
    Will ship in the included Fender form-fitted TSA hard case, double boxed in both the original Fender and Sweetwater shipping cartons.

    This is probably the lightest weight USA Elite Jazz V that you’ll be able to find (especially of the alder w/ebony board versions) – at a back/shoulder friendly 9.8 lbs.

    I purchased a Berg cab from Geebass a few years ago and can confirm that he is a top notch TB member and a pleasure to do business with. You can buy with confidence with this seller. He'll treat you right.

    @GeeBass - GLWS and best of luck regarding your medical situation.

    All PMs replied - this gorgeous USA top-of-line active/passive Jazz V is still available.
    Someone is going to be thrilled with the looks, tone, and playability of this almost 'custom-shop' like Fender - it rivals some of the best expensive custom J-style V's available today.

    Just picked up one of these for myself.
    The color is so beautiful in person.
    The ebony is a big plus . These basses feels so good in the hand.
    Mine is nice and light also at 9.2 lbs.
    Someone will be very happy with this bass. :bassist:

    Somebody needs to pull the trigger on this one. Bailey is a great guy to work with and this is a killer bass (just like everything in his stable). This guy "knows" basses!

    Man. This was the bass I was going to get before I decided on a ‘16 passive Fender V Jazz. At this price I would have bought it. Just a gorgeous instrument. I wish you luck
