1962 FenderJazz Bass – Sunburst


This is a 1962 Fender Jazz Bass in Sunburst, complete with three knobs and a slab rosewood board! This is a hard combo to come by, as Jazz Basses switched to veneer boards in August of 1962. This one is fully original, down to its frets and mutes! On the front, it is fairly clean, although the back is where this bass really starts to get vibey. Check out that playwear and buckle rash, worn right down to the wood grain! This is such a cool bass with quite the punch to its sound.  

Overall Condition:  7.5, the giant belt bucket worn by the previous player is to blame for this one!
