PHOTOS – for more detailed photos please view this item in our ebay store here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303635908117
Made in USA Jazz bass
RW – Rosewood fingerboard
With Case – an unbranded wooden rectangular NON FENDER hard case
Age – from the serial number this looks like it was made circa 1989
The condition of this bass we judge at being around a 8/10.
I will start with the worst bits, which aren’t even that bad but here goes..
The bridge is a little corroded. It’s tarnished and pitted. Would benefit from taking apart and scrubbing if you have the time and want to clean it up. I gave it a quick rub with a wire brush and took photo’s. Spend more time and I’m sure it will scrub up a lot better.
The control plate and knobs are the same – just a bit corroded, worn and a bit tatty.
The front of the body is fairly clean with not too many noticeable scratches and dents for a bass of this age.
The rear has three noticeable scratches – see photos for details. Just light surface scratches, noticeable but not all the way through to the wood.
Neck – the rosewood fingerboard is in good condition and shows some minor sign of wear but a lot better than you’d expect on an 80’s bass. The frets are also in great condition. Some signs of wear, a few minor flattened areas but only minor. They look original and don’t look as though they have been fret dressed.
The rear of the neck is in good condition with lots of extremely minor scratches and dents but no major dents that really stick out.
The electrics are original and over 40 years old but in relatively good working order. One must expect the odd scratchy pot on a bass this old but generally speaking this is in excellent working order.
Playability: we take pride in our instruments here, we love playing them, and love setting them up so they play to the best of their ability. This particular Jazz bass has been set up and had all the usual tests, set ups and inspections: action, truss rod, intonation, electrics etc. Set ups can be a personal thing but we like to set them up as WE like them, and 99% of the time it’s how you love them too!
