    Fender Victor Bailey Signiture Jazz Bass 4 string
    Koa top over Mahogany body with a thin rosewood veneer in between.
    Maple neck with rosewood fingerboard
    Fender noisless pick-ups and 3 band pre-amp-sorta like the FMT pre-amp but it was tweeked to Victor Bailey's spec's for this bass.
    Gold hardware.
    Added gold BadAss bridge and gold front pick-up cover (original bridge inc).
    Original hard shell case.
    $900

    I'll have more pix of it in a day or two. They show some fingerprints, but the bass is mint except for a small ding on the upper horn about 1mm diameter.

    No trades unless it's a Sadowsky Metro 4 string!

    Any reason why you're selling it?

    I found a Sadowsky 4 that I like. And this needs to go to help in the finance dept!
    And to be honest, I dig the "Sadowsky" sound if you will, and I prefer the feel of the Sadowsky too.
    The VB is nicer looking though.

    The Victor Bailey is a great bass without a dought, by far the best Fender Jazz built today IMO.

    I have not played this bass, but have seen/heard it and can vouch for its condition.

    Mike makes it sound killer too.

    That bass is the baddest Jazz (or any other bass for that matter) I ever played or owned.
    I've had it my whole life, know it like the back of my hand.
    But, it's like 9000 pounds!
