Fender Jazz Plus 1990 Made in the USA  with custom Zebrano top  and chambered body.

This is a really difficult one to let go. I’ve always loved this bass and was my number one for a while.

I bought this many years ago. I think it was originally black but the previous owner had stripped it back to the natural finish. The body is alder.

The neck is slim C shape maple fretboard  - very fast and comfortable.

I had a luthier chamber the body and give it the Front2.thumb.JPG.24d60490777ad83fd77b133e3060590c.JPG top  - which is very attractive.

Fitted Hipshot Ultralite tuners.

The result is a light weight, (6.5lb) easy to play bass that is perfectly balanced and looking stunning.

Fender Lace Sensor pick ups

Huge range of tones available from the active pre amp

Controls: 

Stacked Master Volume and pickup pan .

Stacked Treble boost & cut and bass boost  & cut.

Select switch= Mute/Active with mid boost/Active/Passive.

Comes with original Fender hard case still in good condition.

I will also include the original tuners.

 

I’m based in Malvern, Worcestershire and happy to meet up half way within reason.

I would post if I had to for £38 insured

Not sure. Steve Kubiki may have designed the pre-amp. But the PCB has a Fender logo. So maybe not.

Apparently, there was a debate at the time when some prefered a Kubiki preamp and others the Fender one.

That is a thoroughly beautiful instrument.

It is very light indeed but does this mean a thinner sound in any way?

No, the preamp gives a huge range of tones. Also, its made of alder, so you get some umph even when its chambered.

No idea about the hole near the E tuner. It would have been covered by the original tuner. Maybe an option to fit a drop D tuner?

Lovely looking bass - just wondering what the extra larger hole is about by the E Tuner ?

I had two of these and they both had holes in this spot. IMHO it's a result of manufacturing process, e.g. hanger holes for paint shop purposes.

That is truly stunning. Very very nice but i already have a Geddy Jazz i'm afraid otherwise i'd be very tempted by that.
