SOLD: Fender USA Jazz Bass Deluxe 1997 in stunning translucent blue (£750 ono)

Recommended Posts

This deluxe Jazz is a stunning translucent blue colour with the wood grain showing through the finish.

It has a white ‘pearloid’ pick guard, deluxe machine heads and 22 frets.

Made in America around 1997.

Overall, it is in very good condition for a 21-year old bass.  It has a few small dings which I have tried to show in the pictures:

·       small area on back of neck behind 12th fret where lacquer (2-3 mm) has come off

·       few knocks on the head

·       small scratch (1cm) on the back (not through to the wood)

This is an active Jazz with the following controls:

·       Master volume.

·       Pickup select.

·       Treble & bass boost/cut 18dB (stacked knob).

·       Mid boost/cut 12dB.


Please note: the top knob of the stacked treble & bass boost/cut knob is at a slight angle (see photo) but turns freely and adjusts the bass as it should.

I did not notice this when I bought the bass and believe it probably left the factory like this. 

When I removed the plastic cover, the aluminium pin has a very slight bend towards the top. 

I was advised by an experienced guitar repair tech that it is fine and not to try straightening this.


There is no hard case with this bass but I will provide a soft gig bag (CNB, not Fender).

I am looking for £750 or nearest offer.  No trades please.


Pick-up preferred so you can test the bass.

I am based in the West Midlands near Coventry/Leamington/Warwick.

Also happy to arrange mutually convenient place to meet/exchange.


Only selling as I prefer the wider necks on my Precisions compared to the narrower Jazz neck.

Any questions, please just ask (PM).
