    Interested in offers!!
    Fender Jazz bass, made in Japan. Beautiful olympic white with red tort pick guard. Great tone!

    Price drop. Got my eye on another. Would like to sell this one quickly so I can get a fretless.

    I'm okay with selling the whole bass, or the neck and body separately.

    Body is a 2000 MIJ '62 reissue, purchased from stratosphere.
    As far as I know it is all original; there are a few small dings which I have tried to picture.
    This beauty has fabulous tone.
    On one gig I played my Stingray 1st set, and this MIJ Jazz for the rest of the night.
    The next evening I did the opposite.
    Both nights the MIJ J got over in the mix better than the Ray, and with a warmer tone.

    The neck is a 1985 MIJ P neck, purchased here on TB.
    It has hipshot tuners, stays in tune great, has some wear.
    This neck can handle regular EADG and BEAD strings.

    Ships in a modest, inexpensive, though functional gig bag. Will pack extremely carefully as I always do. Free shipping to conus addresses.

    I'd like to sell this jazz bass.
    I will part out this one if someone wants the body or the neck.
    I would think more players would love the J sound and a P neck, and I have two of them, plan to keep one.

    Only trades considered would be Lakland 5 string, and some cash to you.

    Will respond to any offers promptly.

  2. Hi I'm interested but does the MIJ have the original jazz neck still?

    On my bathroom scale with all the usual caveats, this bass is either right at 9 pounds or just a shade under.
    Of the 3 J basses I have (all with P necks), this one is the lightest.
