1975 Black Fender Jazz Bass
This 1975 Fender Jazz Bass with its original Fender Case in A++ condition is a dream to play. Its always desirable and thought to be rare or fewer produced in the color of black. Weighing in at 10 pounds, which is remarkable for this era of Fender Bass.
Due to a previous owner (obviously an in experienced juvenile) having loosened the “bullet” truss rod nut beyond the end of the threaded portion of the truss rod, thus making the “bullet” nut thread back onto the rod impossible. The truss rod “bullet” nut had to be reseated on the truss rod. For this process the first fret marker was removed to perform the reseating of the “bullet” nut by an experienced Luthier. Now it plays beautifully with a very low action. No harm was done to the finish of the neck or headstock.
It appears to have been lightly “played” and with the usual finish swirls and only a very few aging points. The first fret marker. Crazing of the finish on the back of the body and a spot on the back of the neck near the treble side as the neck tapers to the headstock.
This bass even being 41 years old has seen very little use, as evidenced by its pristine original Fender case. I know this bass will be a joy to play and own in the right new home, or in the hands of a collector desiring a piece to complement their collection.
