John Kallas Masterbuilt ‘66 Jazz Bass One of my favorite basses that I need to sell in order to help fund an all original vintage 1966 Fender Jazz Bass that I purchased recently. It hurts me to sell it, but it’s the only way I can afford to keep the vintage 1966 J. This ‘66 replica Jazz Bass was built by master luthier John Kallas in Southern California, using all licensed USA-made reissue parts, and was finished by John in nitrocellulose lacquer. John is a true master luthier and this bass is equal to Fender Custom Shop quality in every way (and even better in my opinion).It is an extremely accurate recreation of a 1966 Jazz Bass, and this bass costs over $3300 new from John. Here’ are the specs... Black nitro finish & matching headstock (w/ “hootenanny button” on back of headstock Strung with Thomastik-Infeld flatwounds Rosewood fretboard w/ white binding & pearl blocks ‘66 ”Lollipop” reissue tuners 3-Ply mint pickguard Hand-shaped, thin neck profile (which feels almost identical to my vintage 1966 Jazz) & amber tinted nitro lacquer on back of neck USA reissue hardware including threaded saddle bridge, chrome “ashtray” covers & “Pure Vintage” knobs. ’74 Amercian Vintage Series “Pure Vintage” pickups USA CTS 250K pots Very lightweight at 8 lbs. 14 oz. and perfectly balanced The neck feels amazing and the fretwork is nothing short of boutique quality. Very smooth, low action all across the board with no dead notes. Truss rod works great with plenty of room for adjustments in both directions. The bass has some minor finish wear here and there from playing, which I’ve tried to photograph, but overall the bass in in very nice condition. For this price range, it’s one of the best basses you will ever play, and with the ‘74 pure vintage pickups, this bass absolutely thumps! Comes with a new Fender gig bag and will be packed very carefully for shipping. I can also include a hard shell case for an additional $50. $1850 Shipped (USA) - SOLD Paypal, Bank Wire, or USPS Money Orders Accpeted.
