imageproxy.php?img=&key=d49e236f730b63a2imageproxy.php?img=&key=d49e236f730b63a2Feeler for serious buyers.

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.

Amazing to see... 

I feel a bit like I do walking around the Tate or the National Portrait Gallery - admiring of something of value thats beautiful, historic but sadly, way out of my league! 

GLWTS 👍😊

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".

Buff... it's a money for a few mortals.

Tremendous bass that takes away the sleep.

Congratulations whoever buys it takes a piece of Leo Fender history in essence without a doubt.

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?

Stunning. I had a Sept '60 (Fiesta Red) - pickguard looked just like that. Pretty specific to the early ones.

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 ??!! 😂

Is this the most expensive bass ever advertised here?

I thought an extra '2' had been added to the price by mistake! 😂

Bargain - apparently, compared with a couple currently for sale elsewhere....🙈🙈👍👍

ps - has the world gone mad, or am I actually even poorer than I thought I was ☹️☹️?

      So this was my first foray into the world of P Bass and I absolutely love it - however, as a solely (up until then!) 5 string player, I have now seen a 5 string PJ I want, so this has to go.
      Serial number suggests a 2009 build, and is in excellent condition, recently re-strung with Rotosound flats. No marks, chips, scratches,  in the gloss black body, just the usual little swirls etc on the pick guard. Small scuff to rear of headstock, which you can just see in the picture.  Has active/passive switching and you can pan between the P or J pickups or of course a blend of the two. Sounds just like a "traditional" P bass in passive mode panned to the P pickup, but bring the Jazz pickup in adds that extra tonal qualities.
      - 3 band EQ and tone control when in passive mode.
      - 41mm at the nut.
      - 18/19mm string spacing at bridge (neck through body stringing or top-load, whichever you prefer).
      - weight around 4.1kg. Balances nicely on the strap.
      - Has all the original case candy, receipts, documents etc. Case is built like a tank.
      PM me if interested - I can ship.

      As the title says.
      The 3 contenders for my next jazz.
      Help me decide guys, anyone with any experience?
      The v9 looks the business and is cheaper than the player series, Sandberg around 700 but lovely too.

      So, my pickups showed up today. I dig'em. They kinda got a solid modern tone. Like, a "studio tone" if you would. Slightly scooped. But, not dull and honky like other noiseless jazz pickups. Where they sound more like splits or humbuckers. And, they are very responsive. Fender done did pretty good with these guys. Check it out.
       
      Oh FYI, 
      Apparently you do not need a ground. Like, at all on your bass. It won't hum any more or less than normal, and it will work perfectly fine all in all without it. Because, as it turns out, my bass didn't even have a ground connected at all. No wire ran. Whatsoever. And, it worked just fine in all aspects. Weird right? Learn something new every day.
