Fender Japan '62 Reissue Jazz Bass JB62-58 Ocean Turquoise Metallic 2006-08
Fender Jazz Bass '62 reissue, crafted in Japan 2006-8, ocean turquoise metallic. This is an excellent finish, it's really quite stunning. The green has a certain depth to it, it's appealing from every angle and certainly has a particular oceanic-appeal. The neck features some very pretty maple, it's sturdy and slim in the hands and instantly feels like home. The trademark J-growl is all there: snappy attack, creamy mids and a rounded, warm low end, all with plenty of immediacy and punch. This is the kind of bass that'll slot happily into whatever setting you need, and always perform with a stack of swagger and class. Go green!
