|Comments|| This afternoon we have a 2010 metallic red Fender 50th Anniversary Jazz Bass in pristine condition. The Jazz Bass was introduced in 1960 and was an instant hit, with its wider range of tones (compared to the Precision Bass) and its slim neck.
This example of the 50th Anniversary production is in incredibly good condition, with all the case candy and accessories included. It’s not completely a historically accurate reproduction of the original 1960 model; the tuners are much improved and it uses the slightly later two volume-one tone control arrangement rather than the original concentric pots.
All in all this is a specacular piece.
