  • Regular price £5,750.00


1968 Fender Jazz in very good condition, Sunburst finish with a Tortoiseshell guard, maple neck and a Rosewood fingerboard with pearl blocks & binding. Serial number 222716. Aside from one solder joint that I we had to re-solder due to a loose wire on the neck pickup it's all original and complete including the original case. Both pickups date to October 68 and all 3 pots date to the 42nd week of 66. (pots dating to 66 are commonly found in Fender basses from 66-69)  

This bass is a great player with a superb tone. There are a few minor Scuffs and dings to the finish, but nothing major for a 52 year old bass. The neck and headstock are in excellent condition with only a few very minor dings in the edge of the headstock. The frets are clean and in great shape having been polished up in our workshop.  All electronics and hardware are in good working order.

 The bass has been set up in our workshop with a med/low action with a set of Rotosound nickel round wound strings. It has a great sound with a warm tone and plenty of growl. This is a great bass to play and weighs 9 lbs 8 oz. The truss rod works as it should without issue. The nut width is 37.8 mm. Depth at 1st fret 22mm.

Condition Very good 8.5/10
Case OHSC
Weight 9lbs 8oz
