1971 Fender Jazz Bass, Sunburst finish in excellent condition, Maple neck and fingerboard with Black block inlays. All stock & original including the case. The serial number is: 346618. The neck on this bass is one of the slimmest I've seen on an early 70s Fender Jazz, measuring 37.5mm wide at the nut and 21.2 mm deep at the 1st fret. It feels almost as slim as many of the pre CBS basses I have played.

This bass is very clean overall, although there are a few chips and dings that have been touched up, mainly around the edges. There's a tiny bit of buckle rash but nothing major. The back of the neck is in excellent shape with very little wear. The frets are also in great shape.

The bass is set up nice and low with a smooth action and a fresh set of strings. It has a great sound with a warm tone and plenty of growl. This is a great bass to play and it's light, weighing only 8 lbs 10oz. The truss rod works as it should without issue. All electronics and hardware work as they should. The pots & pickups date 1971. The pots are all stamped, 16th week of 71.
