  1. 00303_7aKYL2je3CQ_0ew0jm_600x450(2).jpg This for sale in my area for 6bills. The pickup configuration intrigues me as to sounds that can be produced.

    I'm guessing this is some form of jazz bass special run. Maybe Japanese?

    Very interested in your thoughts, knowledge, experiences concerning this bass.

    It looks like a Mexican made Fender Jazz Bass called the Blacktop Jazz Bass. I had one, which was really cool sounding, but heavy. I like the precision pickup in the bridge position much more than a jazz pickup in the bridge position.

    I don't think I would pay $600 for it, but haven't checked what they sell for these days. There is a Fender Blacktop club thread if you have more questions about these basses.
  3. Thank you for your reply. At least now I have a starting point. I agree with you 600 is a bit high, I'm more like 450. Might have to wait a few months...

    Off to the Blacktop Club.

    There’s also a Blacktop Precision, with 2 double-J pickups.

    Blacktop: Fender’s Bizarro line :woot:
