Fender Japan '62 Precision Bass PB62-75 Vintage White 1994
Fender '62 P, vintage white, made in Japan 1993-4. This bass seen some things and played some tunes in it's time, that's for sure. Fortunately, vintage white is one of those finishes that seems to look better and better with more wear: this one has copped a few knocks and yellowed heavily to a buttery hue that pops beautifully against the red tort guard and dark streaky rosewood board. Tone-wise, it delivers: heaps of punch and attack, thick juicy rounded lows, a warm midrange and just a touch of sizzle on the top. The high end combo of an alder body and the USA pickup adds a little extra definition and clarity over the regular MIJ model. The neck is a classic, moderate round profile featuring a gorgeous piece of maple; it feels great. Here we have a hard working bass, bring it home and get going on your tunes!
