A Fender Standard Jazz bass that was made in America costs about $1150. A Fender Standard Jazz that was not made in America costs about $480.


Fender Jazz basses after the 1980's do not go for much higher than brand new Fender basses. I would estimate the price of your bass at around 1000, or if you are lucky 1500.


This arrangement reduces hum - much like when both pickups on the jazz bass are turned on.


Owning both basses, I can tell you that the Fender Jazz does have a thinner neck than the Precision. I don't know the exact difference (measurement wise) but it's definitely a noticeable difference.


The 1970s Fender guitars (including bass guitars) are highly desirable models, especially those in near mint, fully playable condition. At auction, a 1975 Jazz Bass in similar condition could bring $1200 to as much as $2000 or more, particular if it has a case and is as close to mint as possible. Expect a retailer to price a unit at the higher end of this range.


not much, they arent the classic fender people like


A proper fender bass guitar will cost you between £300 and £600 (about $400 to $800).


If you mean "Mint" and not just really nice, AND it is ALL original It's worth about $15000 to $18,000.



1000$ to 2500$ depending on condition


It really depends on the condition of the bass and which market you sell it in. I'd estimate over $10,000.


Sax is very common in jazz. Tubas were used some in early jazz an dixieland, but they have pretty much been replaced by the string bass (bull fiddle) or electric bass.


12 to 15 hundred, depending on how much the seller loves it!


I don't know much about the bass guitar but the Fender American Deluxe is a high quality guitar made in the good old USA. Custom Sop is basicaly the same thing, made in the US and all, but it can be customized to fit your needs and wants. Really if you don't care about color or the look, then go with the American deluxe. If you have the money and want it too look a special way, then go with the custom shop. Hope this helps.

Bass us almost always in jazz, but rarely is it bowed. Except for a few rare circumstances, upright bass is always plucked with the finger. Violin is much less common, but still popular in jazz.


It would depend on the year the bass was made. For instance, a pre-CBS bass (anything prior to mid-64, when CBS took over from Leo Fender) is worth much more than one made in recent years.


It all depends on what kind of player you are. I have played both P and J-basses and i prefer the P-bass. It is great for classic rock and early heavy metal like Black Sabbath. The Jazz bass gets more tone variations while the precision only has a master volume and master tone. You also must not forget that the p-bass is cheaper than the j-bass, for what reasons, i don't know. I also have to mention that the p-bass has a thicker more comfortable neck. I have played bass for over 25 years and i prefer a thicker neck over the skinny ones. The very last thing is that the p-bass is much lighter than the j-bass. So if you are looking for a lighter more comfortable bass with low tone variations with the sound and drive needed for classic rock 'n' roll at a cheap price than the Fender Precision Bass is the bass for you. Here is a small list of notable p-bass players. (John Paul Jones, Geezer Butler, Nate Mendel, John Deacan, John Entwistle, Jet Harris, Phil Lynott, and Dee Dee Romone)


A good quality bass is at minimum 300$, now not to say a bass under that is bad, bass guitars depend on what genre you play. Example, Fender is a good punk rock bass, but I have a classic Fender P-Bass at 210$. it is an amazing punk bass for the price. So I personally wouldn't relate a bass to money and quality, some bass guitars are good for some kinds of music, and some are not. Find out what genre you like, and buy a recommended bass for that genre.


A version of the bass guitar was around even before Leo Fender revolutionized it. The first bass guitar was invented by Paul Tutmarc in Seattle, Washington, USA in the early 1930's. It was known as the "Electric Bass Fiddle," and appeared in a catalog by Tutmarc's company, Audiovox, in 1935. Much smaller than the double bass, this bass was easier to carry. This bass was not fretted, however, and was not quite as popular as its descendant. This design was innovated greatly by Leo Fender, founder of what is now known as Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. Using a telecaster-body design, Fender came out with the "Precision Bass," a.k.a. "P-Bass" in 1951. It was fretted like a guitar, which allowed players greater ease in playing in tune (hence the name: "Precision Bass"). Not only was this model easier to carry than a double bass, but it was also much easier to play in tune. This model was extremely popular and was the first bass guitar as we know it today. It is likely that Paul Tutmarc was the first person to ever play the bass guitar, although Leo Fender was likely the first to play the version we know and use today.


Word on the Internet says around 500. I have seen serial numbers that were much more than 500 apart. I have also seen some made in 2009, with mine being made in 2010.


I never found that much of a difference in 36 years of playing. You get tone by setting tone electronically, technique you use to play (pluck, pick, slap, etc.). What kind of strings you use (flat wound, round wound, tape wound, etc.) What kind of shape the strings are in (new, dead, etc.). As Leo Fender stated in interview the Jazz bass was just the "deluxe" version of the precision bass. He wasn't even a player. Enough of this big difference between the Fender precision bass and jazz bass. If you put one of each in front of me I would take the one that was the most playable as long as we are not talking about one of the original j basses with the concentric volume/tone controls. MK


I paid $500 with original hard shell case on Ebay!
