1969 Fender Jazz Bass w/ Original Fender Hard Case
Fender is the most recognisable and collectable brand when it comes to vintage guitars. In 1960, Fender introduced a new line to their already strong bass catalogue – the Deluxe Model, later renamed the Jazz Bass. It focused primarily on tone, aiming at bass players who wanted to be more noticeable in the mix. Notable users of these include Geddy Lee, John Entwistle, Noel Redding, Marcus Miller, and many more.
It would be extremely hard to find one in as beautiful and original condition as this again. This is no exception to the rarity and build-quality of these early versions.

This is possibly the best conditioned ’69 Jazz you will ever find. There is a small bit of buckle wear to the back, as pictured. Apart from this, there’s literally nothing else worth mentioning. Please do bear in mind that this is a 46 year old guitar so it won’t be like a guitar coming straight out of the shop.
We’ve inspected this guitar thoroughly and we believe this is 100% original. We’ve included as many photographs as possible. It even comes with it’s original pickup covers.
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable guitar. Not only is this sure to increase in value year on year, but also it can be an enjoyed investment.
