    I recently acquired this in a deal I could not pass up. Unfortunately I cannot afford to keep it. This is by far the nicest Fender I've ever played. Come to think of it, I think this is the nicest bass I've ever played, and I've played many.

    The nitty gritty:

    Fender Custom Shop Classic Jazz Bass
    Serial #: CZ10366
    Manufacturing date: 03/03/04
    Finish: Transparent Ebony (catches the light beautifully and reflects colors shined on it)
    Neck: Quarter-Sawn Maple, Modern "C" Shape, (Polished Satin Urethane Finish)
    Fingerboard: Rosewood, 9.5" Radius w/ Mother of Pearl block inlays
    Frets: 21 medium jumbo frets
    Pickups: 2 Custom Noiseless Jazz Bass Pickups (Bridge / Mid)
    Electronics: active electronics w/ 18V preamp
    Controls: Master Volume, Pickup Pan Pot, 3-Band Active EQ with: Treble Boost/Cut: +/- 14 db @ 2kHz to 18 kHz with a peak at 8kHz, Mid Boost/Cut: +/- 12 db @ 1kHz, Bass Boost/Cut: +/- 15 db @ 30 kHz
    Pickup Switching: Pan Pot
    Bridge: Strings-Through-Body or Top-Load Bridge with Steel Bridge Plate and Chrome Plated, Milled, Solid Brass Saddles
    Machine Heads: Fender/Schaller Deluxe Lightweight Tuning Machines
    Hardware: Chrome
    Pickguard: 4-Ply White Pearloid
    Scale Length: 34"
    Width at Nut: 1.50"
    Case: Deluxe Black Hardshell Case in great condition (a few tiny tolex peels)
    Original Certificate of Authenticity
    Excellent Condition - nearly mint (a couple barely inconspicuous hairline scratches and some small polish swirling)
    Original store receipt (over $2,000 brand new)
    Very lightweight! Approx. 7 lbs on the bathroom scale
    Includes all original case candy

    The bass has some fairly new GHS strings on it that still sound bright and punchy. The tone is similar to that of a USA Jazz Deluxe but with much more clarity and punch. The action is low without a single dead spot or buzzing spot that I've noticed...it is set up perfectly in my opinion and extremely comfortable to play. I don't have a strap, though Schaller straplocks are installed on the body (the only modification that was made since purchase.) The fingerboard has been freshly oiled and the bass was just cleaned.

    $1600 shipped in the lower 48. No trades, no international at this time. PM or, better yet, e-mail me if interested.

    I agree. He was born with eyelashes like a Disney character; you are not the first person to tell me that! I'm going to have to put bars on his windows when he's a teenager to keep the girls out.

    He is my firstborn, but I'd only have offered him for that bass before he actually arrived.

    Back to the topic. Wow, that's a nice bass! If I had the money it'd be gone.
