Fender '62 Reissue Jazz Bass, made in Japan 2007-09, vintage white. The white/tort combo on a Jazz Bass always looks awesome, and this is no exception. The highly figured, streaky maple board adds some intrigue; this is a sleek and classy bass with a lot to offer. The USA pickups offer a touch more clarity and brightness over the standard MIJ models; this has a heap of definition and bark.
