Vintage Fender 1966 Sunburst Jazz Bass! All original parts, pieces and case, just the way you want it. No excuses or story's need to be told. This is a later '66, with a bound neck and block inlays. Not by any means a case queen. This ol' girl worked for a living, and you can still feel the life in it as soon as its picked up. Like an old wallet, or shoes, it feels broken in - not broken. The vintage nitro finish is well worn, especially around the edges (typical) and bare wood is exposed in a few spots. A "C " shaped comfortable neck and narrow 1.5 inch nut width that's a favorite of J bass players, and 6-stringers that pick up the bass now and again. First year of CBS ownership, and still has the feel of the early '60s models in a more affordable package. That makes this a great choice for the player that craves the sound and feel of a vintage classic, that does not need to be kept in a static-free safe room with armed guards. Overall, the condition IS very good despite the wear and tear mojo. It is a great player as you'd expect, and nobody needs to be told how great these sound. It's also a nice light weight example (less than 9 lbs). With the cost of boutique and custom shop guitars going up (but not there resale value), why not go for the original? The one that has been copied more than Kim Kardashian selfies? Has more spin-offs than happy days, law and order, and star trek combined? The one…that you really want!

Comes with original case and covers, and the old case smell (you know the one), but not offensive or moldy.

Now's your chance to own a piece of Fender history with this vintage 1966 Jazz Bass. With over nine decades of experience in the music retail business, Sam Ash is the ultimate destination for players and collectors alike who want to find the used or vintage instrument of their dreams.
