Fender '62 Reissue Precision Bass PB62-55 Vintage White 1986-7
Fender Japan '62 Precision Bass, vintage white, made in Japan 1986/7. This is in remarkable condition, it looks closer to 3 months old than 32 years old... amazing! The hardware is shiny and beautiful, the unadulterated finish has just a couple of minor marks, frets looks great... This has obviously been extremely well cared for in it's three decades. These 80s era P-basses generally feature some pretty special bits of wood, and this is certainly blessed in that regard: the neck is a stunning piece of maple with plenty of curly grain, the rosewood slab fingerboard is dark and streaky, the basswood body is light and extremely resonant. The result is a bass that really feels classy: it's very responsive to a light touch and is an absolute pleasure to play. The classic P-tone is all there: round, warm lows, juicy mids with a nice growl, smooth creamy treble... it's really quite lovely. If you're after a Fujigen made bass minus the normal wear and tear of 30 years of hard work, this sleek reverse-tuxedo P is the Dorian Gray of basses: forever young.
