FENDER 2004-05 MIJ JAZZ BASS DAPHNE BLUE Clean! 60s Re-issue Japan 52240


Regular price $1,150

 Really cool looking Daphne Blue Jazz—legendary Japanese craftsmanship. 

Description
This is a 2004-05 Fender Jazz Bass made in Japan (serial# R052240). It is either a ’62 or '64 re-issue model. Bass plays and sounds amazing. Frets and neck are in excellent condition. Has been set up and truss rod works. 14-year-old bass nicely preserved. Only a few small imperfections in finish (see pics). Very retro and rare Dapne Blue finish. Something like this does not come along every day. Comfortable 9 pounds, 3 ounces. No case. Has a copper ground running from bridge pickup to the bridge. I thought this was a weird mod until I got another of these basses. Apparently it is stock from the factory like that. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

Guitar Setup
My setup on guitars includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. I spray out any pots that are noisy. I turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. I don't claim to be a trained luthier, but I'm able to set guitars/basses for a reasonable out-of-box experience and have had very few complaints. If you're looking for the perfect setup on a used guitar, please expect to take it to a trained luthier who is familiar with your individual playing style and preferences. ps: basses get the same setup minus the new strings. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
