Noel Redding bass...what you think of it?

  1. Today I was in Murphy's Music for my lesson and I came across a vintage looking Fender Jazz with the ashtrays...and since they trust me, I decided to try it out...looked at the headstock and it said MIJ, Noel Redding Model...I never knew there was one or even gonna be one... is such a beauty and I had trouble putting it down, it played so damned nice..I ignored the ashtrays and just played to hear and feel it....damn... GAS has again!

    I believe its limited edition. Out of 1000 or something like that
  3. It was a limited run in the early or mid 90s, and they are excellent. Grab it!

    ...if I remember correctly, they were also all autographed by Noel (on the headstock or pickguard or something). MIJ Fenders are considered to be one of the best deals Fender has ever offered (since a brand new Jazz cost about $175 back in 1962!:D )

    I have one - they are a very high quality RI. I think they are based on a 64 jazz, and have features like reversed tuners. Noel signed the pickguard of each in a silver marker, but sadly the signature has worn off of most of them. I was lucky enough to find one with his signature intact (and that pickguard is put away for safe keeping).
