78 Fender Jazz '78 Fender Jazz

I picked this American made 1978 Fender Jazz up at Sam Ash in NYC in 1989.  I went to try it out three days in a row (I was a bike messenger at the time) and picked it up on the third day with some financial assistance from my younger sister.  Thanks Nicky!  The pickups on this bass had been replaced with EMGs and I replaced the stock bridge with a Leo Quan Badass II.  I still use this bass on most gigs and recordings.  It is the bass I learned on, it is very comfortable to play, the electronics are clean and sound full, and it rarely requires tuning.
