    Since getting my 5'er, I've decided to make the transition to 100% 5-string play. I'm not interested in trades at the moment. Better pics will most likely be coming this evening, as I'm waiting for my camera to charge.

    Perfect, with the exception of a tiny imperfection above the pick-guard (not visible from more than a foot or two), and a very minor scratch on the control plate, which were there when I got it. It played exactly as I was looking for at the time, so I overlooked the very minor issues. It's about 45-60 days old. Sticker is no longer on pick-guard.

    Includes original hardshell case (the new SKB ones!) and case candy. It's the new Blizzard Pearl color with rosewood.

    $900 shipped within CONUS. PayPal preferred. Feel free to PM me with any questions you may have!

    Love my Jazz. Every time I play it I think--man this thing sounds great!

    Yeah, this really is a great bass. Unfortunately, I over-extended myself quite a bit when I purchased my first "real" rig, so it's got to go. :crying:

    A great guy to deal with! I liked my 2008 AmStd JB so much I bought a 2008 AmStd Precision too! Fender got back on track with these new 08s. They also have the nicest hard SKB/Fender cases I've seen and very lightweight.

    Pictures, as promised. These were taken this morning. Pardon the fingerprints!







    Tried to get a shot of the minor issue I mentioned in the original post, but it's just to small/minor to pick up on camera. Here's my best attempt.


    Shoot me a PM if you're interested!

    I swear to God I'd buy it right now if I didn't have a kid on the way and oodles of baby gear to buy. :meh:

    Welp, this thread has been viewed 400 times, so I'm going to assume the issue is price. Dropped to $900 shipped within CONUS!

    Couple PM's have come in, but no takers yet. I'm probably going to leave it up for sale until the weekend (on here + eBay), and then hold onto it if it doesn't sell.
  12. Actually, if it were white\tort\rosewood or black\maple, I'd already be back from your house with it! :)

    Good price though! I'm sure it'll go soon!

    Thanks! You might actually dig the color in person, it's much more metallic (shiny) than in the pictures.

    This has now been posted on HC, as well as eBay. It's cheaper on here and HC than eBay though (to cover fees).

    8 watchers on eBay, but no one has pulled the trigger yet. Still accepting offers!

    played an '08 Jazz with these same specs yesterday at GC and compared it next to a '74 Jazz and I thought the '08 smoked it. Fender has done a remarkable job with the new '08 models.

    SOLD! $900 shipped, for those who are interested. Was contacted through eBay, but the buyer ended up being a TB member!
