[FS/SWAP] Fender AVRI ‘76 Jazz Bass

    Up for grabs is a beautiful 2005 American Vintage Reissue Series Jazz bass in natural with rosewood neck:



    It is in superb condition (no dings, belt-rash etc) and has its case and I think much of its case candy. I am not the original owner so can’t say for sure. It is a lovely bass which sounds just like a Jazz Bass, though be warned it has an incredibly thin nut-width (exactly right for its year), so if like me you like more of a baseball bat this may not be for you! Its currently strung with decent flats of some description (I haven’t changed them!) and plays very well with a nice low fast action, though I can set it up however you like if you are not confident adjusting guitars.

    £1200 or swaps for something interesting and ideally collectable.

    Very nice! Re-issue of a mid 70s jazz I think with the three bolt micro tilt neck mounting and the neck pickup moved pack a bit to add more punch.
    The Fender flats have/had green ends so probably those. If it had been in CAR I’d be struggling!

    Time for a bump as it is still sitting here in its case! A really superb bass, I just prefer my lighter, simpler and far fatter-necked Shergold.
