Up for sale, a 1994 Fender Jazz Bass '75 vintage reissue model JB75-90 in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. One of the rarer Jazz Bass models produced by Fender Japan and virtually unseen outside its country of origin, this "Made in Japan" bass was manufactured at the famed Fujigen factory with a Natural gloss finish highlighting the broad, dynamic grain of the ash body. At 11lbs, the sonic foundation of this Jazz Bass ensures rich tones with excellent sustain and midrange punch. The bridge pickup delivers smooth growl, treble-centric clarity and upper midrange burp, balanced by the fuller thump of the neck position single coil. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Jazz Bass is strung with fresh 45-100 roundwound strings, dialed in for optimal action and intonation.
The maple neck has a slender C profile carve with full shoulders and more heft as you travel up the fretboard, measuring .815" deep at the 1st fret and .980" at the 12th. The bound maple fretboard has pearl block inlay, with virtually flawless medium jumbo fretwire that has ample height and perfectly rounded crowns. The bass plays cleanly in every register with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The scale length is a full 34", and the nut is carved from bone, measuring 1 1/2" in width and ensuring optimal note clarity and sustain. The headstock features a block Jazz Bass logo with S-prefix serial number and "Made in Japan" text, and the tuners boast clover buttons and full-size vintage-spec baseplates, turning smoothly and holding pitch reliably.
All of the electronics work as they should, the chrome hardware is bright and clean, and the plastic parts are equally well-kept. Cosmetic wear is limited to some pick scuffs on the treble side of the guard, and just a couple exceedingly faint finish scratches on the body as a whole. The neck profile gloss finish is flawless and unambered.
