(SOLD) Used Fender Jazz Bass '62 Reissue Aged Vintage White
Fender J bass, aged vintage white, made in Japan 1997-00. This is cool! The vintage white finish started life as an off-white/cream colour, but it 20ish years it's yellowed considerably to a buttery delicious hue, offset nicely by the tort guard and pretty grain on the rosewood board. The neck and headstock have mellowed to a golden-syrup colour. She packs the classic J definition and punch, with plenty of growl and thump instantly available when you dig in. The neck is slim and quick, it's nicely played in and you can feel the resonance in both neck and body. This is a tasty J, you really can't go wrong here.
