2012 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass (consignment)  SOLD

This 2012 Fender American Standard Jazz Bass is in fantastic, near mint condition. It’s all original with Fender Custom Shop pickups and rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers, and the alder body sports a classic 3-tone sunburst and faux tortoise pickguard. The strings mount through the back onto the new High Mass Vintage bridge – this is just as adjustable as the original vintage bridge but with much more weight to add sustain and clarity.

1963 Fender Bass VI (consignment) SOLD

1963 Fender Bass VI (consignment)  SOLD

Relatively rare, this 1963 Fender Bass VI is in good visual, working and playing condition. Introduced in 1961 and built till 1975, Leo Fender intended the Fender Bass VI to be both a bass and a baritone guitar. But it was never the roaring success that the Precision Bass, the Telecaster or the Stratocaster were, and only about 800 of the original design were made. However, some of those 800 appear in influential music of the time, including the Lovin’ Spooful albums, The Beatles White Album, Let It Be and Abbey Road.
