Fender Japan ‘62 Reissue Jazz Bass JB62-75US Old Lake Placid Blue 2014
Fender '62 Jazz Bass, old lake placid, made in Japan 2014. Well well, that's a nice finish hey? Lake placid is a lovely finish, but old lake placid blue, especially paired with the classic tort and dark rosewood combo, is next level gorgeous. It's light and lively in the hands; the slim classic J-style neck is friendly and fast, and the well-balanced offset body is acoustically loud and nice and resonant. The classic J-growl and snap is all there, balanced by an even low end with heaps of thumping attack. This is a classy character in every way, and surely basses this slick down turn up everyday.
