1997 Fender Japan JB-62 ASH Jazz Bass Reissue MIJ

Here we have something a bit interesting! This is a Japanese made JB-62 1962 reissue bass BUT with an ash body, matching headstock and trans finish. Pretty cool right? What’s cooler is that the ash is lightweight, as you’ll know ash can be on the very heavy side sometimes! The bass sounds great, a little bit more punch than you would expect from the alder body version. As you can see the bass has had plenty of use and shows signs of wear and scratches across the body and the headstock. We have given the bass a full checkover and everything still works as it should including trussrod/electronics.
