Fender Japan Standard Jazz Bass, crafted in Japan 1999-02, vintage white. There's something timeless and sleek about this finish, and as it yellows to a creamy hue it really starts to look awesome. This one is definitely in that category: it's a mellow, buttery colour with some cool sticker marks and a lot of appeal. These J-Std models are really nice; you get a sweet satin-finish modern shape neck, light body and nice simple hardware that gets the job done, all built with Japanese craftsmanship. This doles out the classic J tone: growl, cut and punch, and it's super easy to pull a fat sound because it's so easy to play. This is simple and effective, and that's what we all want, yes?
