1965 Fender Jazz Bass, Sunburst

  • Sale
  • Regular price £7,995.00


Late 1965 Fender Jazz bass in fair/good condition. It has a nitro Sunburst finish with a Tortoiseshell guard and an unbound rosewood fingerboard. It's been re-fretted with period correct size frets and the solder on the pots has been re-flowed - otherwise all original, including the hard case. It comes with a 3-month warranty and a 14-day approval period. 

Despite the obvious, extensive playwear, this is a fine example of a vintage Fender Jazz bass. There are numerous dings and scuffs as buckle rash on the back, the Sunburst is still vibrant with very little colour fade. The most extensive wear can be found along the edge of the pickguard near where the heck meets the body and also just above the bridge pickup. (both areas have an indent not only through the finish but into the wood) The neck has a heavy play-wear through the finish leaving it smooth in the hand. The frets are clean and in excellent condition having been cleaned and dressed in our workshop. The headstock has some scuffs and dings around the edges but everything remains structurally sound with no breaks or repairs.

This bass is a joy to play with a superb even sound right across the fretboard, it has a straight neck and there's tons of room in the truss rod. It's been fully set up in our workshop with a low action (2 mm at the 12th) and a fresh set of Elites Stadium 45-105 stainless steel round-wound strings. It weighs 9 lbs 2.5 oz / 4.16 kg. Serial: 114065. The neck date is Sept 65A. The pots all date to the 42nd week of 65. The pickups have original windings and untouched solder. Neither have legible dates. 

Condition Fair-Good 6.5/10
Case OHSC
Weight 9 lbs 2.5 oz / 4.16 kg
