I'm selling a 1976 Fender Jazz Bass. 1976-the year of America's Bicentennial Celebration. Color is sunburst and the sunburst is just the way it should be. Maple neck with maple fingerboard with white pearl position markers. This instrument sat, unused for 20 years in a home rehearsal studio. The neck is straight with no wear on the frets. Fingerboard and the back of the neck do not have any signs of wear or nicks or dents. Electronics are original, but the pickups were recently rewound by Ken Armstrong. All 3 controls work perfect-no scratching noise when turned. The G string tuner was replaced with a Hipshot tuner that matches perfectly. The Hipshot tuner has a higher gear ratio, making it easier to tune the G string. The chrome neck pickup cover is missing. When I acquired the bass it still had the factory original flat wound strings on it. They have been replaced with a new set of D'Addario. Original strings will be included if you want them. A few small chips in the body finish as shown in the photos. The chrome bridge cover and the chrome control plate are as good as it gets, no rust, no pitting. The bass weighs 9 lbs., 12 oz. with the chrome bridge pickup cover on. Included is a genuine Fender hard shell molded case, but it is not the original.  If the shipping charge to your location is less then $150. I will refund the difference.
