Fender '62 Jazz Bass, lake placid blue, crafted in Japan 1999-02. This is such a stunning bass, it looks so good. The lake placid blue finish has yellowed and mellowed over twenty years to a gorgeous rich blue with a hint of green. Paired with the classic sixties curves, the golden headstock and a rich ochre rosewood fretboard, this looks a charm. The slim vintage C shape neck is luxuriously easy to play, it's a fast friend and will make a good companion if you play longer sets. The tone on deck is a pretty classic take on the J-growl. There's heaps of midrange push and grit on the bridge pickup, while the neck pickup offers a pleasing roundness with a tuneful and punchy fundamental note. Our tech has replaced all the pots with new premium parts, lending the tone a little extra sparkle and zing on the top end and ensuring it's stage-ready for the next couple of decades. J for joodness.
