FS: Sunburst Fender '76 Japan Jazz Bass reissue - major Mojo ...

Recommended Posts

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]This is a painful sale, but I spend 95% of my time playing my main bass, so this is making way to free up funds.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]It's a great example of a Japanese Jazz bass. Really well built and tons of fun to play. Looks awesome too.[/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Serial number dates it at 1995 - and as you can see it's been a gigged instrument. [/size][/font][/color][color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Last player of the bass was from Masters Of Reality who supported QOTSA on tour. [/size][/font][/color][color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Has a few knocks and dings, but I think they just make it look the part. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Being a Jap bass the wood looks like a couple of nice pieces of ash to me, rather than the usual alder. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Neck is straight and action great - loads of life left in the frets. Nut has been upgraded to bone. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Pickups are the standard Jap in the bridge, EMG select passive in the neck. No idea who settled on this combination but they sound great together. Front volume control is also a push-pull pot, which changes the pickup wiring from series to parallel - gives the tone a major fat boost! Pots have been changed to CTS with a PIO tone cap. [/size][/font][/color]

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Will come with a decent fitted hard case - so shipping should be fine.[/size][/font][/color]

Located in Queensbury, West Yorkshire if anyone wants to come and try it.

[color=#34495E][font=Lato, sans-serif][size=4]Offers around £600?[/size][/font][/color]
