(SOLD) Fender Japan '75 Jazz Bass JB75 Candy Apple Red 2008
Fender JB75 Jazz Bass, candy apple red, made in Japan 2007-10. We get plenty of Fender Japan jazzers through, but these '75 style models with the block inlays, bound board and matching headstock are much harder to track down. It's a very cool look: equal parts classic and mean, and that deep red really pops paired with the JB-curves. The body is ash, but in a merciful twist, this weighs in at 4.2kg... pretty light. The tone on offer is a snappy, crisp take on the Jazz Bass growl. There's a lot to like, it sounds excellent. It's been a couple of years since we had one of these in this finish, so nab yourself a cool cucumber while it's going.
