Fender 'Pro Feel' Jazz, trans red, made in Japan 1988-90. This sounds huge! The late 80s was a crazy time in the land of guitars, and Fender was in the biz of 'modernising' some classic designs to suit then-current tastes, especially in Japan. The Pro Feel series were high end offerings for the local Japan market, with sleek styling and some fancy specs. This has a graphite reinforced neck with twenty two bigger frets and a flatter 9.5" radius, similar in profile to the '75 reissue Jazz also in the lineup at the time. Combined with a super lightweight body, this is a very slick and quick player that's absolutely the friend of the busy gigging player. The pickups are overwound for more output and low end, plus there's a super handy active preamp with a pickup balancer and bass and treble boost/cut knobs. The lightweight ash body and high mass bridge offer a whole heap of natural snap, definition and attack to the mix already, so adding in some extra thump via the pre-amp allows for some extremely lively, hard hitting and notes. The transparent red finish lets the grain of the ash show through; combined with a choc rosewood board, bold CBS era decals and no guard, this has a very slick look. If you like a bit of retro sci-fi, go back to the future with this one.
