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.

      Very nice black Sadowsky Modern Metro Japan 24-5 with the great Sadowsky humbuckers and Sadowsky pre-amp with VTC.
      Not a Metro Express and not a Warwick or Chinese Sadowsky but a perfect Japanese Sadowsky..
      Good balance, approx. 3850 grams. Comes with original Sadowsky case.
      Signs of wear but great looking and no issues.

      This bass is effectively a sister to my build diary for a PPJ5 in Surf Green that sold recently. I'll try to find some different pictures from the ones that I chose for that build diary. Feel Free to comment and ask questions along the way. I'll start with a recent photo, I'm just at the point of fitting the nut and John East UNI Pre active electronics, so this is nearly but not quite finished. It weighs in at exactly 4Kg with strings and everything else. It is a Chambered Swamp Ash body, Canadian Rock Maple asymmetric profile to the rear with a proprietary "thumb-groove" further slimming the fast "J"-like profile. It sports a compound radius Macassar Ebony fretboard 12"-20" radius with block inlays. The Daphne Blue Nitro has been lightly aged with a cryo-relic process. There is the usual high specification hardware and electronics from Hipshot, Bartolini and John East. This bass is available and I'll be shipping it out at the Black Friday week deal price from last year on her Surf Green sister. Complete with a branded Hiscox hard case and 2 years of free setup and service (fair use policy applies).
      Please DM me if you might be interested.
      Do head over to @bassworksluthiery on Facebook for other information, if you can't wait for me to populate this build diary over the next week!...
      Thanks for reading and enjoy!
