(SOLD) Used Fender Jazz Bass '62 Reissue Ocean Turquoise Metallic
Fender Jazz Bass, '62 reissue crafted in Japan 99-02, in classy ocean turquoise metallic. This one has those deluxe touches: US pickups, alder body, stunning rosewood slab-board fingerboard... this is a high-end model of the '62 J'. The body is light and responsive, and combined with the US vintage JB pickups the tone is very full with a lot of punch and growl. The finish has aged from a teal-green to a slightly aged metallic ocean blue, which is nicely offset by the minty fresh pick-guard; it has a very distinguished look. The neck is perfectly slim and very fast, it's an absolute breeze to play and will keep you coming back for more. If you're a 'classic with some added flare' kind of player, this is perfect.
