It is, Jazz profile, very similar to the Japanese Geddy Lee......

According to legend, these had the Geddy Lee neck as production of the GL Jazz had only just moved to Mexico.

I had one of these active ones and they are incredible. I think it was something silly like moving to 5 string that caused me to sell it - silly in the fact that I am now permanently playing 4 strings basses. Bah

Have you modded this to active & passive? This model was on general sale for a while & were, AFAIA, active only.

The previous years passive the advert refers to was made for GC in the States (in Sea Foam Pearl & Black) only 6 of each of these passives reaching the UK.

Damn - I like that! Why do basses I have GAS for always appear when I don't have the funds :-( GLWTS, someone is going to be very happy with that.

If only it was passive

 

That would be easy to do with a set of EMG Geezer Butler pickups. I had a fault with the preamp on mine and I managed to fit the full 3 band EMG EQ inside the control cavity as well as 2 9v batteries inside the battery compartment.

Alternatively the pickups of your choice with a prewired solderless harness. You could do either and still be able to put it back to stock if you sold it.

Glad this bass came up, 'cos it's jogged a memory that was bugging me, as I KNEW I had one of these actives from new. That I sold to pay for the passive.

Anyway,

this 2012 active was the "standard" Factory Special Run".

My 2012 passive was the Guitar Center commissioned Factory Special Run.

Both models were made at around the same time (my passive serial number is about 150 before this bass).

BUT!!!

The 6 Sea Foam Pearl & 6 Black passives came to the UK AFTER the active version, as they were brought from Guitar Centre stock left over.

SO glad I've finally remembered :)

Tommy, it's a relatively cheap & easy conversion to passive, you've got a lot more chance of getting this version than the original passive.

I was always under the impression the Passive's were more common place, maybe so in the states as I've seen many more video demos of the passive than the active, poss active aimed more at the european market

How do you find this stuff out? I was just wondering how many of my FSR Mustangs came to the UK . . . . .

Karl knows his Fenders, info is out there, just takes a lot of digging with Fender as with most manufacturers they don't archive info very well, which is a bollox as it's nice to know what's what with all models

Sadly a lot of the stuff I had was lost with the last 2 BC upgrades, which is why I couldn't quite remember how I'd got the passive AFTER the active.

And my memory is frankly poop now (saving the expletives filter time there) :P

Fender Forum & Talk Bass are both great starting points, but you often wade through a lot of haystacks.

But it saves making conversation with Her Who Makes Toast By Breathing On Bread. :|

I might be making this up but with the active FSR there were 250 made and 100 came to Europe. That could be complete garbage though  O.o

Correct 100 allocated for Europe. BUT only 99 survived. I ordered mine from a UK retailer and was shipped direct from Fender's EU distribution centre but it arrived with a broken neck, I returned it and a second arrived in perfect condition. A fantastic bass! One I will never part with. GLWTS

I have one of these - amazing bass that can cover any sound you want! Mine has since been upgraded with a flashy John East preamp (which sounds monstrous) but the stock version you have is also the dogs danglies :)

Thoroughly recommended to anyone wanting a very comfortable, fast neck, do-all styles bass.....

GLWTS!

This looks fantastic. What's the weight please ?

Not exactly sure, pretty standard P Body weight, but not very heavy, neck is very light, pretty heavy lacquer like a japanese model, but overall not heavy at all,  extremely well balanced bass, and it's awesome also, tis ending on ebay tonight at 7pm,

Cheers

      Hello all.  I have Aguilar equipment.  So I'm familiar with and use it professionally.  I'm about to get a 410 cab.  DB 410 vs. SL 410.  I know theres a major weight difference.  Would I be losing any phat punch and tonal quality going with the SL 410?  Please give me your experience and opinions.

      I have the above for sale.
      The neck pickup is a genuine Seymour Duncan SJB 3N Quarter Pounder...an absolute brute of a pickup! It's passive, but has a gainy growl.
      The bridge pickup is actually not connected to the electronics at all...it's just a crap pickup for show...you can obviously replace this with another pickup.
      But for now, this bass has the neck pickup as the only working pickup.
      This was originally an off-white coloured bass, however about two years ago, I painted over it in black, and clear lacquered over the top. 
      Being my first attempt at laquering, it's not perfect, and there are some small spots that are either not fully painted, or have some "drip".
      If you're like me, you'll want to customise your own basses, so the paint job could be an extra project for you!
      Apart from the pickups, everything else on this bass is original.
      A bit of buckle rash on the neck plate, and some scuffs on the top of the headstock, also some marks on the side of the neck due to sweat and lots of playing
      The frets are smooth and a little worn due to afore mentioned playing.
      Also, the reason that I have pieces of string holding the balls of the main strings in the bridge is that they were cheap strings from eBay (which actually sound good!), but the balls were too small for the bridge holes...but all other strings are fine (I've used Fender, Ernie Ball and Rotosound).
      Great instrument that will last for a very long time. 
      Will post to mainland U.K with a courier for extra £6.
      Paypal or internet banking (I've sold loads on here before, so no worries there)
