Jazz Bass JB62-53 Capri Orange 1997-00
Fender P, '70 Reissue, aged olympic white finish, crafted in Japan 99-02. These CBS-era Ps have the big headstock with the bold black logos, a black guard and a heap of attitude. The white/black look is all the more appealing with a few years on the clock, although this has aged very gracefully. The alder body and US pickup deliver a stack of attack, roundness, warmth, growl and grit; the tone is the life of the party and sure to get some hips moving. The weight is pretty friendly and perfectly balanced, this is a great working-player's go-to bass. If you're after a bass that'll do black-tie weddings on Friday night and then sweaty punk shows on Saturday, this will surely do both without breaking a sweat.

Cosmetic condition notes: mild finish wear. There's a couple of little marks on the back down the bottom, a dent and a minor scuff. There's some play-scratches on and around the guard, and the lacquer and chrome both feature a bit of discolouration. There's a pair of extra holes from a since-removed thumb rest. Overall: very good condition (8.5/10)
Playing condition notes: Action is low, neck is straight, intonation is good, truss rod works. All electrics tested and working properly. Frets look almost great, 8.5/10 for life left. Set up with fresh 45/105s. Very good!
