    This is a feeler because I am not sure I can part with any of these let alone all of them, but here is what we have:

    1) A Cortez 70's style Jazz Bass, made in Japan. Lightweight, easy to play. BIG tone- lots of bottom with MP3s to prove it! Black binding and block inlays. Missing the pickup covers but I suspect any after market replacements will fit. Stock brass saddles and brass nut. Some dispute as to whether these were made in the Matsumoku factory or not, but they were definitely made in Japan. Thinking $375 shipped conus.

    2) Electra "Longnecker" Jazz. Beautiful binding and block inlays, MOP headstock logo, and comes with the original hard case which is trimmed with metal for heavy use. Original pickup and bridge covers over the mini-humbucker style pickups. Heavy/solid bass. Made in the Matsumoku facotry. Thinking $550 shipped CONUS.

    3) Fender MIJ Jazz bass, with E6*** serial number making this a 1986. I have seen these listed as 62 reissues which I am not sure is correct though there are certainly some similarities such as the copper grounding wire. This bass is easy to play and comfortable to wear. Thinking $650 shipped conus.

    All basses are overall great lookers though as older basses do, they do have some bits of wear in spots which will be detailed in separate posts along with ample pics, should I decide to move ahead and sell these. In the meantime I wanted to take everyone's temperature as to whether there is even any interest in these basses.

    If you are interested, PM me.

    Thanks.

    Lots of views but there doesn't appear to be much interest so far. I'll keep this up for a couple of more days while I figure out what I am doing with these axes...

    Hey sorry for the late reply. Forgot about the thread.

    Don't think I am parting with the Fender. The other two are in play.

    Thanks.

    Not sure. The bass lives in my office where there is no scale. I have back issues and this does not feel heavy to me if that helps.

    So the Electra is still available. I will probably post it separately with more pics so stay tuned. Also, the MIJ e series jazz is not for sale right now but my black MIJ g series is for sale so check the classifieds listing. It is an '87 and pretty cool.

    Thanks.
