    Hi all,

    I'm selling my super great-sounding 2000 Jazz V deluxe. The MIM jazz deluxes from this year got the Suhr-designed pickups and preamp that he was contracted to make for Fender (that were typically reserved for USA production models). They are split coil jazz pickups, are super quiet, and sound just killer. The preamp is a 3-band also designed by Suhr (I gather) and adds the musicality you need going into your amp of choice. I'm selling this and my boutique Jazz bass because I don't find the J-bass body style as comfortable as some modern shapes.

    There is one eighth-inch by quarter-inch impression on the back 'belly contour' and two small scratches: one very thin and about 1/4 inch above the bridge pickup, and one thin maybe 1 inch one on the back (see pics). Otherwise, no other major marks or anything I could see. Great shape and great looking fingerboard...I included a pic without the strings after oiling to show it off.

    Red metallic finish
    Maple neck with gorgeous rosewood board and neck stripe
    chrome hardware
    Suhr-designed pickups and preamp
    Chrome Duncan dual-design Straplock buttons
    Comes with hardshell case, extra (light use) DR strings, and a strap (case has seen better days, but all latches are great).

    FS only (no trades) for $500 shipped CONUS obo.

    PRICE UPDATE: now $475 shipped!

    First few are during a re-string. Check it:


    Almost think this looks like pao ferro...it's wonderful.

    Barely noticeable scratch between B and E by the pickup:

    Here's two shots of the paint: the first is over exposed, the second with no flash. It's right in between the two, and metallic:

    This is the impression on the belly contour:

    ...and the pencil tip is pointing to the barely noticeable scratch on the back:

    Good idea. Got it outside today and took these with the cell phone:


    And yes, I can fit a fEARful 15/6, a 2U head, two bass cases, an accessories bag, and a wife in the Civic coupe pictured.
