Fender Japan '75 Reissue Jazz Bass JB75-100US Cherry Sunburst 2007-10
Fender Japan '75 J, cherry sunburst, made in Japan 2007-10. These '75 models have a strong visual appeal; the bound board with blocks and the bold logos really make the classic curves pop. This one is sporting the classic maple board, which combined with the ash body, offers a terrific amount of attack and definition to the tone. This really does sound amazing; the USA pickups deliver amazing clarity and the ash body and high mass bridge mean you've got all the growl, spank and cut you could ever want on top of the trademark Jazz rumble and thump. It's no exaggeration to say that this will easily outperform most USA-made basses in terms of tone, feel and finish quality. The slim 70s-style neck feels amazing in the hands; it's instantly familiar and reassuring. The cherry burst finish is loud and proud and it really lets the stunning tight grain of the ash shine through. This, friends, is all class.
