Fender Jazz Bass '62 Reissue Ocean Turquoise Metallic 1997-00
Fender Jazz Bass '62 Reissue, crafted in Japan 97-00, ocean turquoise metallic. This is a deluxe model, so you get the nice stuff: alder body, US pickups, spiral saddle bridge. It all adds up beautifully in the hands; it's responsive, resonant, comfortable and choc-full of tone. The US pickups offer enhanced brightness and definition, so you get that J-growl in spades with heaps of articulation. The slim neck features some really saucy subtle flame maple, it feels and looks amazing. The finish has yellowed slightly to a deep ocean green over 20ish years, it's really quite something to behold now. This is a very classy J, it's got mojo and poise to burn!

Cosmetic condition notes: Minor finish wear. There's some scuffing near the rear strap pin, a few dimples on the front of the body and a few minor marks on the back. The chrome has some pitting, although the machine heads are fairly clean. Really not much to worry about. Overall: very good condition (8.5/10).
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good. Frets have minor wear but heaps of life left. All electrics tested and working properly. Set up with fresh 45/105s. Sweet!
