1993 Fender Order Made Jazz Bass Butterscotch Lacquer, Near-Mint w/ Case, Japan MIJ Fujigen

$2,399.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1993 Fender "Order Made" Jazz Bass in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with a molded hardshell case. This “Made in Japan” Jazz Bass was crafted at the Fujigen factory as part of Fender Japan’s Order Made program, which offered a bevy of non-catalog features and finishes.

Unusual in its feature set and evoking '50s Fender specifications in a few key ways, the bass has an ash body finished in gloss Butterscotch lacquer, along with domed knurled knobs, all non-catalog options indicative of the instrument's "Order Made" status. The bass is medium weight at 8lbs 15oz, with a bold, powerful natural acoustic quality with excellent note detail and attack. The pickups deliver a range of midrange-forward Jazz Bass tonalities, with plenty of burp and articulate growl, a clear treble response, and thick thump with the Tone knob rolled back to taste. This Order Made Jazz Bass has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and accurate intonation.
