Made in Japan in November of 1979 for release in their 1980 catalog, the FJB-65J was Fernandes' unofficial "Jaco" model fretless Jazz Bass. Sen ash body with no pickguard screws bolted to a maple neck and factory lined fretless fingerboard, it weighs 4kg's. Loaded with the original L-7001/7002 alnico JB pickups controlled by two volumes and a master tone control, this one appears to be all original except for one replacement knob. 

Overall it's in good condition for a 40+ year old guitar with basic signs of general playwear. The fretboard is clean and it's currently strung with fresh flatwounds, the truss works well and the neck is nice and straight with no choking. The clear coat over the headstock decal has peeled (common on these Stone Logo models) but is still clear and intact.
