Winner: Ben Tamplin

Well what do we have here then? Just check out the stunning grain pattern on this beautiful limited edition Fender Special Run Jazz bass. Ash was the tonewood of choice for the earliest Telecaster designs, back in the '50s - the first mass produced electric guitars.
Made in Corona California, this is an absolute "stand-out-from-the-crowd" bass. It's looks will have heads turning and sound will have ears glowing! What a real beauty this is.
Here's what Fender have to say:
At Fender, we live and breathe electric instruments. We never rest—pushing craftsmanship to its limits, we design, test and endlessly experiment to create the best instruments on the planet. The Jazz Bass, a refinement of concepts first introduced in the Precision Bass, is the earliest example of this philosophy in action. Evolved for today’s musician, the American Professional Jazz Bass combines modern features and materials with Fender’s craftsmanship and expertise to produce a truly contemporary bass.
Speedy, powerful and articulate, the Jazz Bass quickly carved out a niche for itself when it was released in 1960. The slim, ultra-fast neck and slick offset-waist styling made it a favourite of bassists everywhere. Funk, fusion, disco and, of course, modern rock all owe a life debt to the fantastically versatile Jazz Bass.
