    According to Fender's website my jazz is dated between 1993-1994.
    Japanese Crafted. Beautiful instrument!
    it weights 10.5 lbs. It's a solid jazz bass.

    Anyway, I got this for my birthday (well I paid for it...for my birthday :p) last year and I think I'm wanting to pick up a different jazz bass.

    Most upgrades were done by the previous owner (great work, mind you).
    The two I noted below were done by professionals.

    Nordstrand NJ4SV pickups (wonderful sound) - I had this installed
    J-Retro Preamp
    Leon Quan BadAss II Bridge - I had this installed
    Wilkinson Tuners
    Large All Parts Strap buttons
    Comes with Fender Hardshell case that is in excellent condition.
    Bass is Medium weight, not too heavy. - I don't know the exactly weight, I have no scale
    No dents, or dings
    -Slight buckle rash from standard use.
    This baby's in great shape.

    I paid $750 for it and I've installed new pickups and bridge since then so I'll say $825 shipped right now.

    I might keep the Nordy pickups so if you want the bass with the BAII bridge but no pickups I'll do $720 shipped.

    Do not submit any trade offers that are not on this list.

    Any trade offer MUST BE a Jazz Bass!! No exceptions!

    FYI I'm shooting for a 70's style. It must be 70's pickup spacing.

    -No Marcus Millers. Sorry.

    -Block and bound necks, preferably maple fretboards
    -The blocks can be pearloid or black, just depends
    -The neck can be allparts/warmoth, depends
    -So maple/black, maple/pearloid, rosewood/pearloid fretboard choices are good for me

    -I like Japanese '75 RI colors, so I'll entertain those offers.
    -Sunburst, Not natural, LPB, aged colors, anything

    -Needs a Passive mode. So it's either Passive entirely or the active eq can be bypassed. Preferably just passive in general.

    -I like ashtray / pickup covers. :)






    Thanks for looking guys!!! PM me or reply to this thread with any questions.

    This REALLY hurts to put on the market, so remember I have the right to take it down.

    Hit me up! I'm GASsing! (Not for a StingRay, mind you, I have mine and it ROCKS)

    Okay, I just bump this down to $850 shipped. I'm eyeing a jazz bass on eBay so I'd like some cash right now. Let's do this!

    Wow ... didn't think I'd ever see you get rid of your RI ... just goes to show GAS can hit at any time. ;)

    Dig'n the black J-Retro ... the J-Retro's definitely open these basses up & make them wicked versatile

    Good luck with the sale BUMP. :)

    Price drop to $825. I'm just trying to get what I put into this bass. Come on fellas, this is a beauty and she's as smooth as butter.

    I will consider offers between $750 and $825. Just offer away and I'll accept or decline! I'd like to buy my new jazz asap!
