Fender Jazz Bass - 1976 - TRADED
£1850
Cardiff

Recommended Posts

Nice example of a transitional era Fender Jazz in the transparent blonde finish, this has the older style logo but with the 3 bolt neck plate and micro-tilt.

This might attract any Marcus fans out there as it really nails that bright, snappy, articulate slap tone. Harmonics jump off this bass and it rings out forever! Currently setup with 40-100’s and a low action. Truss rod turning both ways nicely.

It has usual signs of wear and tear consistent with its age, most notable is a slight lacquer chip on the back of the neck. I can’t feel this when playing but it’s worth a mention. Otherwise it’s all original except for replacement bridge saddles (I think) as these appear a bit more shiny, but I’m not sure, perhaps they were preserved when the bridge cover was present. Bridge and pickup cover along with original case are missing.

Weight is 5kg as it’s a heavy ash body. It sits nicely on the strap and with a wide strap, it has been fine for me.

I will include a generic hard-case in the sale.

TRADED

Trial welcome in Cardiff.

That’s a nice looking jazz! How long have you owned it and what’s the reason for selling it on?

I’ve not owned this very long, another impulse purchase on my part! Only selling due to GAS for another instrument...

Lovely bass - if it's still around in a month or so (when money will allow) would be very interested. Can I ask one thing - is that an olympic white or see-through blond finish? I'm guessing olympic white was a much more common colour in the late '70s, but on your bass you can see the wood grain under the finish, and it also looks darker where the ashtrays were: on most olympic white finishes you would expect it to be lighter under the ashtrays. If it is factory original see-through blond it must be a pretty rare example - I can't recall seeing any others.

It’s a see-through blonde finish, in natural light it’s certainly more yellowey in tone.

Send me a PM if you want to discuss further. 👍

Few questions about the pots - they all date to the 25th week of 1975.
