REDUCED : £2300 : Fender Jazz Bass 50th Anniversary


Recommended Posts

For sale : Fender Jazz Bass 50th Anniversary, excellent condition, candy red, with original Fender / G&G hard case and all original case candy & tools. Everything works including the truss rod.


Fender set out to incorporate all of the 'greatest hits' features in the J-bass's history with these models, full spec below. But if you know your J-basses you'll already know all about this model...


The only defects I can find are a couple of tiny chips in the paint on the back, a little wear in the pickguard slot where the truss rod tool goes in, and some lacquer discoloration where the neck meets the headstock (perhaps from a hangar) - I have tried to photo these as best I can.


"Celebrate 50 years of solid bass performance with the 50th Anniversary Jazz Bass! Bringing together the best elements of Jazz Basses from previous incarnations, this is the ultimate bass for J Bass fans. The alder body offers up traditional Fender bass tones, which are amplified by the pair of '75 Vintage Jazz Bass pickups.

The J Bass has always been favored by players seeking a faster neck, and 50th Anniversary Jazz Bass certainly delivers. The feel of the familiar C-shaped neck is enhanced by the rolled fingerboard edges, and classy pearloid block inlays run the length of the rosewood fingerboard. As with any instrument, tone is a primary concern, and the high-mass vintage-style bridge bolsters both tone and sustain. Rounding out the classic touches on this very cool bass are chrome pickup covers and a bass-side thumb rest. Whether you've been rocking the Jazz Bass since its birth or you're a more recent convert, Fender has offered up a Jazz Bass for the ages with this amazing instrument!

It looks gorgeously classy, plays fast and furious, and produces all the classic J-tones effortlessly. But I'm not truly a J-bass person, and so its time for it to find an owner who is !

Great pictures that show the bass at it's very best. GLWTS.

Thanks ! I'm not much of a photographer really, but it is difficult not to take nice shots - for some reason, the metallic red, white plate, chrome parts & dark fretboard seem to complement each other.  Too good to be looking nice hanging on the wall...
