The only one for sell outside Japan. Amazing built, this series are like the American Original line up for Japanese Market (So you can't find it outside Japan), but it has been fully supervised by Mark Kendrick (Master Builder from the Fender Custom Shop, check out the video about the series)
Pickups are specially made for this series. Great tone and response, low action with no deadspot, really close a real 64 Jazz Bass, with a custom shop team built quality.
Sounds great with pick, slap and fingerstyle. I did a sound samples right here (straight to soundcard no treatment)
Bass is in MINT CONDITION, just had one ding on it. It comes with the original deluxe gig bag. I'll put a nice Fender leather strap with it too. It breaks my heart to sell this beauty, but I need money for my big project for our next big video shooting.

Beautiful bass, with a rare satin finish neck ! Really smooth to play. Great tone, with a lot of punch. Truss rod works, frets are in MINT CONDITION. Comes with a GIG Bag. Still need to raise money for the next music video of my band guyssssss
No brand (far east manufacture) but decent quality jazz bass that started out as a fretted instrument but was converted to a lined fretless by Perfectly Good Guitars in Manchester. Nice piece of maple for the neck with rosewood lined fingerboard.
Currently fitted with really comfortable Rotosound Trubass 88 black nylon tape wounds.
Controls are a volume for each pickup and a rotary 6 position preset tone knob from certainbass.com
Comes with quality hard case with a few marks but in robust condition and all latches work fine.
Also has buttons for strap locks fitted, Schaller I believe.
Some dings in the finish as pictured but a great fretless for those wishing to give fretless a try This Xmas and release their inner Jaco.
Thanks for looking.
i don’t have a box for shipping but could cover case in bubblewrap and send if someone wants to use Basschat’s Eurosender deal at their cost? I sent a five string to Belgium with them and that went smoothly.
I started playing bass a few years ago, found that I loved it and after some research went for a Player Precision last year. It's great and I have been very happy with it but a month ago, under lockdown fever, I started to lust after a Jazz and so started a lengthy research process. Seems like Fender have been very busy of late and it took a while to wrap my head around the various options but today I finally made it to a music shop to actually get my hands on them and feel/hear the distinctions for myself. Options in the shop were limited but I did get to compare the Original 60s, the Professional and the Professional 2 and the clear winner by quite a distance was the Original. Yes the character and physical feel of the instruments were different but just the sheer quality and richness of tone of the Original was so far beyond the Pro 2 that I couldn't quite believe it at first and had to go and play something else and then come back just to check I hadn't momentarily lost all judgement capabilities. I wish I had brought my player Precision along (yes, very different tone but there can be an objective difference in quality regardless of series I think) just to see how it sounded next to the Pro 2. I have a feeling I would have walked away from the Pro 2 if an exchange had been on the table.
I suppose my question is: has anyone else played the Pro 2 and where they as underwhelmed as I was. Or is it just that the 60s Original sounds so bloody sexy? Am I missing something??
Probably a bit lengthy this post, sorry. Would be interested to hear your thoughts though
