Up for sale, a 1993 Fender Jazz Bass JBG-70 MBR in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Made exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, this Jazz Bass has a great range of vintage tones and is a model rarely seen outside its country of origin. Featuring a dark Walnut-finished ash body, this Jazz Bass balances well on a strap at 9lbs 3oz and is particularly resonant, with a clear, warm acoustic voice.
Benefitting from the midrange complexity and note attack attributed to ash as a tone wood, and a glassy ebony-like articulation from the particularly dark, tight-grained rosewood board, the aggressive growl of the roundwound strings is on full display, with a cut and burp that doesn't sacrifice low end fullness. The bass can also thump quite well with the tone knob rolled back. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this Jazz Bass plays well with low action, 45-100 roundwound strings, and spot-on intonation.
The maple neck has a slender C shape at the nut that graduates to a fuller handful as you travel up the board. The bass features Fender's traditional 1 1/2" Jazz Bass nut width and full 34" scale, while the fretboard has a modern 9 1/2 radius. On the thick slab rosewood fretboard, the slender frets have their full factory height and well-rounded crowns with virtually no wear. The neck is straight with an ideally adjusted truss rod and plays well in all registers with no buzzing or dead spots. The peghead sports a gold Fender Jazz Bass logo along with original gold-plated tuning machines with clover buttons.
All of the electronics work as they should, with stock pickups and pots. The control plate shows notable wear through the gold plating while having plenty of shine, while the bridge base has a more matte appearance to the gold. Cosmetic wear is limited to a couple of finish chips and a small cluster of nicks on the lower bout edge, as well as some light finish scratches on the body as a whole. This rare Jazz Bass has a great voice, reasonable weight, and a professional setup with roundwound strings.
