Squier JV 1982 Jazz Bass by Fender Japan MiJ [Ash/Rosewood/Abalone]

Recommended Posts

1300€ (Euros) for this awesome 1982 JV serial Squier Jazz Bass by Fender, Made in Japan.

Unfortunately, in comparison to other instruments left over the years, this bass has had significant costs to make it truly playable as it should 100%. So the price remains non negotiable. Thank you! 😉

A rare instrument of that vintage year with ash body (only 2 sections cutted in the center of the body examining the wood veins), maple neck and rosewood fretboard with abalone dots.

The serial is JV19216, model of September 1982, as also written on the plate attached to the body. Made in Japan with wood and parts coming directly from the United States.

Elixir 0.45-1.05 Nickel Coated Nanoweb strings have been included. With a nice low action.

Woods, hardware and electronics are completely original. Only the thick finish of the body has been removed (now he has a thin and natural oil finish that makes the wood sound good) and the frets are new, as is the tortoise-shell pickguard of a Custom Shop '64, the thumbrest and pickup covers that have been added but not featured in this model. The neck has not been repainted and it is completely original. The washers in the picture have been removed and a tilted maple heel has been created to allow the low action of the strings on the fretboard maintaining the contact between the neck and the body and therefore all the tonal characteristics and the sustain of the instrument.

Perfectly working. Hard case included.

Hi TAz

Love the natural finish!

Did the Custom Shop '64 pickguard retrofitted or did you drill new screw holes?

Hi, it really has fantastic natural grain and it's not easy to find with just 2 sections of ash. The pickguard was not present when I took it, the Custom Shop '64 was adapted to the holes already present, unfortunately the old owner I think had already adapted one and therefore it already looked like this. I just removed the little paint already present to make it totally natural.

      I’m moving on my MIM Fender Precision Bass. It’s a 2005/6 model according to the serial number and is totally stock. It’s in excellent condition. Never gigged, only ever used at home. It’s in my way as I’m not playing much these days. 
      Nice satin neck, nut width is approximately 42mm and it’s a nice chunky profile. On my bathroom scales it’s 4kg dead. The white scratch plate has aged nicely to a kind of faded parchment and the dark blue slightly metallic paint is spotless. 
      No gig bag but I do have a sturdy bass box that a Squier came in for transporting. I’d rather meet up, not keen on sending. I’m centrally located (I live about a mile from M40 J11) but am often in the Midlands and northern Home Counties. I’m happy for you to arrange your own courier if you prefer and I’ll pack it well in said box.

      Sadly selling a few basses.
      I got this P-Bass in mid 2017. Only been used a few times at home. In excellent condition with original hard case.
      Sounds and feels great!
      Let me know if you have any questions.

      Ok. I’m selling this bass not to downsize but I want to buy the same bass! Yes, lockdown madness has kicked in.... this beautiful natural Marcus Miller jazz is very close in looks to my Sadowsky (see pic side by side- the Sadowsky’s not for sale!) and I’d absolutely love @AndyTravis white MM. If Andy’s sells this WILL be withdrawn from sale  
      This Bass is a 2007-2010 Japanese model. It’s got a super fast neck, and is in great condition. There’s a couple of marks on the headstock but nothing major (see pics), nothing that I can see on the body and the usual swirling on the pickguard. The neck is very slim and the pre amp is monsterous! You also have a passive option but why you’d want that is anyone’s guess! It’s weighing in on a manual set of scales at around 9.5lbs. It has a generic gig bag. 
      Shipping is a possibility but would be at your cost and you’d need to arrange. I’m happy for a socially distanced meet or collection.
      Any questions feel free to shout!
