Franken Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by blackstang351c, Apr 23, 2010.


  1. I previously had this listed as a '62 re-issue, American vintage series Jazz, but some inconsistencies were pointed out to me. So I researched and determined I can no longer list it as such. It plays VERY well and sounds like a Jazz should. The neck is a mighty mite with a very narrow, thin profile. Cosmetically, it's a little rough, maybe a 6 out of 10, nothing major, some scrapes and bruises. Stacked pots, brown tolex fender case, hipshot ultralite tuners. Curently strung with DR fatbeams, the Marcus Miller set, but I'll include an old set of flats which suit this bass better in my opinion. Asking $400 plus shipping to the lower 48.

  2. The fender decal was on when I bought the neck off ebay.

  3. Some chips around the neck pocket. The neck is nice and tight in the pocket.
