Fender / Jazz Bass / 1965 / Sonic Blue / Bass
Another jaw dropping, eye popping rare, and near MINT Custom Colour bass. This time a super rare Fender Jazz Bass in Sonic Blue with matching headstock, original cloth, case, strap and mutes (in a bag).
The condition of this bass defies belief. Sonic Blue is a super rare custom colour that does not age well and most of them you see will have turned to Sonic Green or similar. Not this one. It is still has its original, vibrant, light Sonic Blue similar to how it left the factory back in 1965 and if you take a look at the under the guard pics you will see there is only a slight amount of fade and just the merest hint of slight green going on in a few places.
100% Correct, including all solder, hardware, finish etc. There are no touch ups, no over spray going on and it is as pure as the day it left the factory. The only signs of any wear is just a few very small dings here and there, some marks on the side where it has been resting in the case and a slight amount of play wear on the lower edge of the neck by the frets - please have a look at the many pics taken from all angles. Just look how clean the front and back is!
Pretty much zero fret, or fingerboard wear and zero wear on the brightly shining chrome hardware. It really does pop out at you as soon as you open the case…
Matching headstock is in amazing shape too and is a nice touch to have with these rare Custom Colour Jazz Basses. Playing wise, it is as good as new with no dead spots, an excellent action and no truss rod issues either.
This being a transitional 1965 model, has the unbound fingerboard with dots. Neck date is November 1965 and all pots date to 42nd week of 1965.
This is one item where we think we can truly say.. .find another!
