    MIJ a/m body and electronics, all new! Brand new never played Jazz size maple neck (1.5") vintage ivory binding, offset fret dots, painted headstock and Fender Jazz Bass waterslide, string retainer bar, and brand new vintage 70's style tuners. New vintage style heavy cast bridge with brass saddles and brand new brown tortise pickguard.

    I absolutely LOVE this bass. Looks incredible, plays like a dream. I got it professionally set up when I first got it and it is just stellar.

    Comes in a brand new gig bag.

    Unfortunately, wife says it has to go :(. Too many basses, thinning the herd.

    But let's just say that a wife comes with a certain set of perks that can't be handled by a bass, unless you have a very strange relationship with your bass.

    Love that color and matching headstock and I usually hate matching headstocks. I've already got too many basses myself, though. Good luck!
