1995 Fender Precision Bass '62 Vintage Reissue PB62 Olympic White, Japan MIJ Fujigen

$1,449.99

Up for sale, a 1995 Fender Precision Bass '62 vintage reissue model PB62 in 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market and rarely seen outside its country of origin, this '62 Precision was crafted at the famed Fujigen factory during the golden age of Fender Japan production, sporting a custom color Olympic White gloss finish.

Nothing screams quintessential bass tone like a Fender Precision. Looking to capture the magic that made the early 1960s split-coil P Bass so beloved, Fender Japan released this '62 reissue with the same cosmetic appointments, as well as the warmth, articulation and fundamental thump that defines the Precision tone. The bass is a medium weight example at 8lbs 10oz, offering the sonic richness that has been the signature of this model for decades. Professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this bass is strung with roundwound 45-100 strings and plays well with comfortable action and solid intonation.

The maple neck has a medium C-shaped profile carve with moderate shoulder and lightly rolled fretboard edges, gaining more roundness and heft further up the fretboard, measuring .845" deep at the 1st fret and graduating to .995" at the 12th. The thick slab rosewood fretboard retains the original slender vintage-style frets which have their full factory height, playing cleanly in every register. The scale length is 34”, the fretboard has a vintage spec 7 1/4" radius, and the nut measures 1.675" in width (just shy of 1 11/16"). On the headstock, the vintage-style clover button tuning machines turn smoothly and hold pitch well, and the face of the headstock has a classic Pre-CBS style "spaghetti" logo. The "Made in Japan" text and N-prefix serial are present above the four-bolt neck plate.

The traditional electronics work as they should, with the original pickup wired to Master Volume and Tone controls with knurled metal knobs. The finish is accented by a vibrant glossy red tortoise pickguard, and the chrome plating on the bridge is bright and clean. Cosmetic wear on the Olympic White gloss includes dings and finish scuffs on the back and body perimeter, largely localized on the lower bout body edge, with similar wear also extending to a lesser extent to the bass-side waist on top, and a tiny bit of finish checking at the edges of the neck pocket as well.

A gigbag is included.
