Fender Limited Edition Lightweight Ash American Professional Jazz Bass, Sienna Sunburst, Rosewood Fingerboard
Maybe you've heard, maybe you haven't - Fender has stopped producing production line instruments with Ash as the primary body timber. It will now only be used on Custom Shop guitars, limited edition models or models where the historical spec has to be Ash.
The reason is simple, high quality Ash has become extremely difficult to source and is forcing the prices of it sky high!
We've sold out of all our final discontinued Ash guitars, and now we've just got this last batch of awesome lightweight Ash Jazz Basses to clear.
If investing in a quality instrument that might prove to be collectible appeals to you, then it's well worth considering this limited edition bass.
ORIGINAL RRP: $3399
The blurb from Fender: At Fender, we live and breathe electric instruments. We never rest—pushing craftsmanship to its limits, we design, test and endlessly experiment to create the best instruments on the planet. The Jazz Bass, a refinement of concepts first introduced in the Precision Bass, is the earliest example of this philosophy in action. Evolved for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass combines modern features and materials with Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.
