    im a guitar player, so have no real knowledge of basses. My friend gave me this bass that was lying around in a case untouched since 1991. It's a Japanese Fender Jazz bass, but I have no idea beyond that. Based on the serial number and some research, I believe it was built around 1989.

    Pictures attached. If someone could give me the exact model, maybe a link to the same guitar somewhere on the web. Also what a fair price is if I look to sell it

    beyond that I got nothing concerning the "exact" model... though Japanese Fenders are highly prized in quality being second only to the American made instruments...

    technically you are supposed to be at minimum a supporting member to ask value questions via the rules but re-sale your looking at about $650.00 to $800.00 if it's in really great shape

    Just helping you identify the drink you should buy for the friend who gave you the bass if you determine to sell it.
