Late 1974 / Early 1975 Fender Jazz Bass, Olympic White finish in good + condition. Maple neck and fingerboard with pearl block inlays and binding. After market pickguard and what looks to be a rewound neck pickup. The serial number indicates 1972 but Jazz basses were not given the 3 bolt neck design until late 74 / early 75. The plate would appear to have been on the bass from the factory due the paint that has lifted onto the underside. My best guess is that leftover plates from the Telcaster bass were used up during the transition from 4-bolt to 3 bolt. (bare in mind that 3-bolt plates for basses are larger than the 3-bolt plates used for Stratocasters etc) The Fender case is from a slightly earlier period. ( 67-71)
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 has some buckle rash, some wear around the edges and a patch of marks on the front 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. all electronics are in good working order.
It's been fully set up in our workshop with a low action giving great playability. The neck stamp is worn so impossible to read. The pots all date to the 51st week of 74. Serial:368063. Weight: 8lbs 15oz. Nut Width: 39mm. Depth at 1st fret: 21.6.
