Offered for sale:

Used 1987 Fender Jazz Bass Left-Handed “MIJ” made in Japan serial number E769041.

This bass is in very good condition. There are nicks and wear marks about the body; all normal for its age. The neck and frets are fine. The original pickups have been upgraded with EMGs. The access to the battery is through a small battery cover on the back. The non-original pick guard has a crack at the fretboard but is stable. This bass shows a long life of action with abounding patina.

These “made in Japan” Fender instruments are of a very high quality; some feel they are equal to or superior to the USA made counterparts in this era.

Cool lefty Jazz, nice piece of MIJ history, this could be yours!

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
