Fender '62 Reissue Precision Bass PB62-70US Vintage White 1997-00
Fender P Bass, crafted in Japan 1997-00, vintage white. It's a bit of a stretch to call this bass 'white', I prefer the term 'lemon cheesecake'... it's yellowed superbly with approx 20 years on the clock to a delicious creamy yellow. Aside from looking positively radiant, in a streetwise kinda way, this is a stomping bass in every way. The neck is perfectly played-in; it's smooth and has a sweet classic round profile, it's a dream in the hands. The body is resonant and alive, it rings beautifully with each note and allows you to feel the notes as well as hear them. The bass produces a superbly strong tone: heaps of warmth and roundness, tight and punchy bass, defined tops and that midrange growl that adds instant fatness to any mix. This is how a P should be!
