For sale is my Fender Japan Jazz Bass Special E series (1984-1987) in Black with natural neck. I'm not looking for trades as this is one of two that I own and I'm looking to sell this one to finance another purchase.
To the best of my knowledge this bass is all original and still has all its "F" caps on the control knobs (rare as the proverbial rocking horse stuff if missing!). It has a Jazz bass width neck, not too skinny and plays superbly IMO. Very similar to my '68 Jazz. Weighs in at about 9lb 1oz, so relatively light.
If you're after the Duff Mckagan sound then get your pick out and you've got it. But this is no one trick pony and the range of quality Fender style sounds is really top notch. The electronics are Volume/volume/TBX tone control (TBX is your standard tone control, but once you pass 5 more bass, treble, presence and output to flow to your amp) and also a pickup selector switch - all great useable sounds.
This is a well used bass so shows some signs of wear after 30+ years. Black bridge and neck plate finish worn. Various dings and belt bulking, but noting through the finish from inspection and being black from a couple of feet away you can't see it. I've done my best to show wear in the pick, but with black it's a bit tricky. Full disclosure if you're after a really clean bass, this isn't it. The neck is really nice and clean and overall this is a superb locking bass.
I will post it safely if required at the buyers expense, or happy to meet up within reason.
