    Here's a Hohner Jazz Bass, made in Japan during the "lawsuit" era. Really good condition for its age, and feels great to play. I believe it's all original, just missing the truss rod cover. I'll provide more pics and details later if needed - on my way out the door to practice right now. Only caveat: at one point the jack seemed a little scratchy and could need replacing, although it seems fine now. I'd plan on replacing it if I were the buyer.

    $275 shipped. Might consider a trade for a similar P bass.

    Bumping this back up. Lots of interest on this one, but it's still here for now.

    $275 shipped is a steal! The old Japs, in good shape, are worth more than that.

    Thanks! Yeah, I think it's a fair price for this. Oh, forgot to mention earlier: it weighs in at 8.2 lbs.

    Here she is with the other old MIJ bass I've got for sale right now. Feel free to make me an offer on both together, either cash or trades.

    I want to see the back of the tuners, please. Are they like fender 70's?

    Trus rod works fine? Neck is straight?

    As requested, here's a quick iPhone snap of the headstock back. As for the neck, yes it's straight. I've honestly never touched the truss rod - didn't need to. And I'd check it now, but it takes an allen key that I don't have without going in at a funny angle and risking scratching the headstock. I'll take it back if you buy it and aren't satisfied.
