Fender Japan '62 Reissue Precision Bass Dimarzio Collection PB62-66DMC Vintage White 2004-5
Fender '62 Precision Bass, vintage white, crafted in Japan 2004-5. This handy friend is one of the short-lived 'Dimarzio Collection' instruments that popped up in various short bursts throughout the 'CIJ era'. Basically you take the classic, simple and smooth '62 style P and add a saucy, meaty high output passive Dimarzio pickup into the mix for some extra fun. The tonal results are great: heaps of midrange presence and grit, balanced by a crispy clear treble and a chunky low end. It's a sound that'll happily slot into a lot of genres but works especially well for punk and grunge. All that attitude lives inside a classy, classic off-white P with a tasty rosewood board; just like a crispy white long sleeve shirt that covers your sleeve tattoos. It's pretty light for a P and very slick in the hands; a pleasure to play. That's cool right?
