What is a Fender jazz special?
Fender Jazz Special= MIJ PJ-p/up bass actually more like a Precision, passive, with rear-routed controls (no scratchplate).
made in the mid-late 80's.
I never understood why it was called a "Jazz" special- even the neck width wasn't quite Jazz-style.
the most famous user is probably Duff McKagan with Guns n' roses, who used an all-black one.
Seems like they always have one or two on Ebay at any given time. Good luck.
I think I just saw one of those if im not mistakin at sam ash here in Brooklyn N.Y. It is black w/gold hardware for 300.00 bucks. Hey aren't you from N.Y.? btw hurry while supplies last, I saw it yesterday. Call the store and ask for Chris.
i own one my self AND I LOVE IT,LOVE IT,LOVE IT! DID I MENTION THAT I LOVE IT ?do not get a mexican one ,go w/japan model,mines an 87 j/bass special but some are called p-bass specials depending on the year,and stay away from the all black necks ( its hard to tell if theres a neck issue) there is also a active model called POWERSOUND(i'm not to big on that model,its the one Duff from G&R uses)there are always good ones on e-bay,my music teacher has one for sale at his music shop for 450.00 pretty mint(i can prob.get you pics if interested)my bass has dimarzios( lot better than stock) and a badass and it rivals any fender i have ever played. they are really good basses(japan ones only)
Thank you Pyorh and Geezer, and all of you other kind fellows for responding!
I had someone email me who has a black one with "non-active" pickups. Is this an undesirable type of pickup? It has a rosewood neck and was MIJ. They are asking $340 including shipping--You guys think its a good price? It is supposed to be in excellent condition, but not mint. Please tell me what you think. Thank you, Kurt
I own one myself. Bought back 1990. First ax that I have owned with active electronics. Pretty neat. Do a google search, you'll find them. Get the MIJ ax if you can.
This one just went for $199!
Here's another one on eBay $200 NR
Here's a black one for $100
