    I downloaded this picture (I think off the Fender site) in May 2007 and I can't seem for the life of me to find the same bass anywhere again. It's got a pearloid pickguard, 70's style neck with blocks, what looks like noiseless jazz pickups and the coolest black finish I've ever seen. Stained maple maybe. Any ideas?

    Transparent black Fender custom shop custom classic jazz bass.

    No longer made, apparently.

    I have never seen such a fender, but Sandberg does such colours

    I'm not positive, but that may still be a Fender Japan color.

    Fender Japan made a Ventures series 12-13 years ago with blocks in that color with matching headstock.

    LOL @ snugglemuffin.

    Errr, anyway... nice Jazz. I'd put a black guard on it. No "Mother Of Toilet Seat" allowed.

    It's a no longer made color i'm pretty sure. A guy i know has an MIJ Strat with the same color and it's from the '90s and it's the only one of that color.

    I have the same bass- Trans Black from the land of the rising sun

  15. I thought it was transparent ebony and this would be Jazz custom classic right?

    ash body, fender noiseless with special wiring and 3 band eq (not the same as the Am Dlx jazzes, I think lows/mids/treble are set a bit higher)
  16. mark peric has one:



    except he has a 5'er
  17. sorry to zombie this but man i love that jazz bass...
