This is my personal 1973 Jazz Bass. I got it in 1975 and it was still new. I played it in a Funk Band for 8 months. I was very careful not to scratch it then...or ever. Then I went back to guitar and put the Jazz Bass in my closet in 1976, and it's mostly been in the case since then. The Translucent See-Thru Blonde Finish looks awesome on the Figured Ash Body. The finish is Creamy Colored and the Ash Figuring can be seen under the Translucent Finish. The neck is straight. The electronics are original to the guitar and sound great. Pickups are the originals and both went open and were rewound to spec by Lindy Fralin many years ago. The Rosewood Finger Board has White Binding and Block Inlays. The frets have no visible wear nor does the fret board. Back of neck wood is still very new looking with no yellowing of the back of the neck. Body has a few very light marks from actually being played and handled. Just a bit of scuffing on the right edge from case insertion. See pictures. Pots date 4th week of 1973 and the serial number is 374705. This is a no excuses survivor. Condition is certainly fantastic considering it's age. Not perfect. But certainly near mint. You'll never see another Blonde 73 this good. I've never seen one as good as this one in the 40 years I have owned it. Includes original Fender hard case. Call Paul at 401 722 5837
