1973 Fender Jazz Bass, Olympic White finish in excellent + condition. Maple neck and fingerboard with Black block inlays and binding. All original with the exception of a rewound neck pickup and what looks like a reissue Fender bridge. This is an excellent bass. I personally love these Maple neck Black block Jazz basses. I owned one for many years. It has tons of tone and the growl is fantastic. With both pickups and tone up full this bass really sings with tons of top-end, the mids punch through and the bottom end holds it all together.
The finish shows very little playwear, with only a few very small dings and scuffs, mainly around the edges of the body. The neck and headstock are very clean and the binding is all intact. The frets show very little signs of wear. The truss rod works as it should and is still flush with the end of the neck which is straight.
It's been fully set up in our workshop with a low action giving great playability. The neck stamp read: 72 A. The pots all date to the 4th week of 73. Serial:373289. Weight: 8lbs 11.5oz. Nut Width: 38mm. Depth at 1st fret: 22.5.
