This is my August 1960 Fender Jazz Bass. It is all genuine and in good order, Pots, pickups and solder joints are are undisturbed. Includes the original case in excellent condition.

I bought this from the US some years back and I can tell you its one of the best playing basses I have ever laid hands on.

She has been on flats all her life so the frets are in great condition.

She comes complete with her original ashtrays in excellent condition and a full set of mutes.

Sadly it is time to let her go. No trades, no kidneys, no children please.

This site has an amazing habit of bringing back old memories, often prompted by basses of yesteryear that come up for sale on here.

I played a 1960 stack-knob jazz just like this one back in 1981. It was the property of prolific Edinburgh-based musician and actor Neil Hay, who I had the pleasure of meeting when I took over from him in a resident band in a Tiffany's club in Newcastle. He told me about its rarity even then and what a great bass it was, but I'm ashamed to say I was young and foolish and took very little notice, being obsessed with active Japanese basses and trying to sound like Mark King. Well, it was the 80's after all...

Sadly, Neil passed away in 1994, and although this isn't his bass, I do wonder what happened to it. Did anyone on here know him?

This anecdote seems familiar to me. I was loaned for a few months a JB 1967 in the early '80s but I finaly went back to my Ibanez MC924 to look like Sting. Can you believe that ??!! 😂

not only is this my year of birth, but also my month of birth. I'll scare the other half with "I've found my perfect 60th birthday present". 

Same here. And my wife and daughters are asking me what to buy me 😂
