Some buckle rash on back and small amount of finish from back of the high neck (from previous owner).
Electronics in excellent working order and frets in good shape. Lovely low setup.
The bass case is in really good condition overall.
Only rehearsed with it once since acquiring from another basschat owner last year.
It really is an awesome bass and since Michael Pedulla has now retired I would expect these to grow in value, but im just preferring 4 strings recently and have a Pedulla Rapture 4 that gets more use.

Tried to show everything the best I can. If you want any more information or photos I can try get some.
These are really well reviewed, and ridiculously expensive new.
If you want to make me an offer, get in touch.

      Fender Jazz bass, Mexican 2016, 4 string. Maple neck with black block inlays and black bindings along fretboard. Natural finish. Great bass, sad to sell it but I'm married to my others and I'd prefer it was being played. Comes with hard case. First time seller on here so don't hesitate to let me know if you need some more info!

      Picked this up a couple of months back to have another try with five strings. Not sure what I was thinking because I struggle with four so in light of some recent purchases I  think I will move this on.
      The Good Points
      It's a good, solid 5 string bass which punches above it's weight. Body is Bubinga wood, fingerboard is Rosewood. The neck is super flat and really nice to play. Hardware and pickups are by Wilkinson. The four pots are Volume, Tone, Bass, and Pickup Blend.
      The Bad Points
      It has a few marks and dings (the previous owner toured Europe with it) but nothing major, just general, light, wear and tear.
      When I picked it up, it had a really low output, and the pickup blend pot was crackly when adjusted. On inspection, the battery had leaked and corroded the battery clip, so I replaced that and stuck in a new 9v which sorted the output issue. I haven't gotten around to fixing the pot yet. It may just need a squirt of cleaner, or it may need a replacement soldering in, both of which should be pretty simple and are reflected in the price.
      Price is £125. This does not include shipping but does include a crap Fender gig bag to carry it home in. Shipping could possibly be arranged. I have a box, and can upgrade to a better more padded gigbag, but this will push the price to £160.
      I would also consider a trade for a high end (Mono, Sadowsky) gig bag with money either way.
      Socially distanced collection or viewing is welcome, as is PayPal if fees are covered.
      Any questions, please ask.

      Fender Jazz Bass Marcus Miller made in USA, like new and completely original. The bass is from 2007 but it has never been played, as can be seen in the pictures. Perfect paint, perfect keys, perfect electronics. Before putting it on sale it was perfectly set and checked by a specialized lutherie. It's hard to find such models in these conditions. Obviously the case is original, there are all the accessories and certificates and also the tools in the original Fender pouch, that is still sealed. I don't trade with anything.
