You are looking at a Vintage Fender 1964 Jazz Bass Olympic White, serial number L91235. This is the actual bass you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 12.6 oz.)

What has more vibe than a convertible Caddy with Johnny Cash at the wheel, more wear and tear than 60 year old union steam pipe fitter, and…what is as all-original as Cher at 17 years old? Well, if you peeked at the pictures before reading this you may have guessed: it's our 1964 custom-color Olympic White Fender Jazz Bass. This vintage Jazz Bass is very far from case queen status. In fact, all the polish and elbow grease in the world will not restore the pre-CBS-era J-Bass to its original luster. The good news is that it sounds exactly how a vaunted instrument of this time period should. In fact, the '64 J-Bass is a dream bass. Countless copies and reissues of this model have been made that only approach the playability, tone and vibe of these old marvels. There is no way to duplicate the blood, sweat, tears and beer lavished on this worn old American Icon.

This is the real deal, with the battle scars, fading, and honest play wear to prove it. There is no evidence of abuse or damage to any vital part of the instrument. There is a ton of use—this bass earned a living for its previous owner (who we believe was a 7-pack-a-day smoker). In many ways, we feel it's just as beautiful as the day it was made. This bass is like Rocky after getting his face punched in by Apollo Creed, or like Snake Plissken on the Queens side of the 59th Street Bridge. You get it. This bass is battle-worn and definitely a winner.

Action and playability are as smooth and comfortable as your old motorcycle boots. Tone is pure vintage Jazz Bass. The nice dark Brazilian rosewood fingerboard is in excellent shape, as are the professionally-re-done frets.

No solder breaks or anything to indicate a refinish. This is the real deal. The ash tray and cover were lost long ago, as was the case. This vintage Fender '64 Jazz Bass is offered with an aftermarket case to protect it for its next 52 years of service. As we like to say: "used, but not used up." A couple grand more than a Master Built relic reissue. You decide.
