c. 1975 Fender Jazz bass owned and played by Greg Joseph of The Clarks at Pittsburgh Guitars c. 1975 Fender Jazz Bass

This bass has been well-loved and well played! It was previously owned by Greg Joseph of The Clarks, and was played by him on many stages and recordings. It has the original neck, body, and heavily checked natural finish. The bridge saddles and tuners are original as well. The neck has had a professional jumbo refret, and was converted from a 3-bolt to a 4-bolt. The original 3-bolt neck plate, with serial number, is included. It has Fender Vintage Reissue pickups. The tone pot and bridge pickup volume pot are dated 1975. The neck volume pot was replaced, and strap locks were added at some point. It is in very good, yet very cool condition, with lots of scuffs, scrapes and scratches, dings, chips and bare wood, and alot of deep finish checks. It has a flower sticker on the front, a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon drawn on the back, and some other assorted markings. It comes with the original hard case, rough but functional, with a broken handle. A Clarks CD, as well as pictures of Greg playing the bass on stage with The Clarks are included!
