Fender at one point quit making the Squier Jazz Bass, then they started again. I bought this around 1997. I thought a bass guitar was like a guitar. It may as well be a tuba for the difference.
I’ve played it about 5 times. I have tried to sell it for $225, including gig bag. It’s like the relative who comes and stays and stays and you can’t get rid of it. I’d love to sell this instrument. The body is royal or navy blue, almost black. Photos make instrument looked damaged, but that is light reflection.
