1978 Fender Jazz Bass, Natural finish over and Ash body with a C-profile Maple neck & 7.25" radius fingerboard, white binding and Pearl block inlays. Black pickguard. All original finish, parts / electronics / case. 100% complete with untouched solder. (with the exception of the missing metal pickup and bridge covers) Although this bass is heavy you will not be disappointed with the punch, clarity and rich tone this bass delivers.

The Natural finish has a few areas on the front top bout where the top coat seems to have worn off, from what I can tell I think it may have had some stickers on it which have been removed. There are also a few small scuffs around the edges. The neck and headstock are very clean. The frets are in great shape. The action is set nice and low and the truss rod has plenty of movement. The pots date to the 18th week of 78. The pickups date to 78. The serial number indicates 77 but as the pits and pickups date 78, the final assembly on this bass appears to have been done in early 78.

Fully set up and checked over by my technician. Weight 11lbs 1oz. Serial:S734416. Neck width at nut: 1.525" . At the 12th: 2.192" . Depth at nut: 0.880". At the 12th: 0.975".
