2014 Fender Limited Edition Sandblasted Jazz Bass.

Fender Say:

The Limited Edition Sandblasted Ash Jazz Bass features one of the most alluringly unusual finish treatments yet seen on a Fender instrument. After the transparent finish (in beautiful Sapphire Blue or Crimson Red) is applied, the ash body is literally sandblasted, leaving the surface grain pattern wonderfully textured with parallel ruts and grooves in which the black grain-filler coat shows beneath the color finish coat. It’s a truly beautiful look complemented by a black pickguard, and the “topography” of no two instruments is identical. The bass is also finely appointed with two American Standard single-coil Jazz Bass pickup, a slim maple neck and fingerboard, and much more.

I say:

With what I can only describe as the most unusual finish I’ve ever seen, this Bass is probably like Marmite – love it or hate it!

This guitar is totally BRAND NEW – no marks, dings or scratches, the pickups and scratch plate even have their protective plastic still in place.  These have a RRP of about £1200.  Considering that this has the original packaging, unopened goodie pack, and Deluxe Gig Bag with straps, this is a great opportunity to score one of these super rare, and therefore highly individual basses for 2/3 of the RRP!

I still think it looks like an extra from a Zombie movie!
