2013 Fender Jazz Bass Walnut ‘62 Vintage Reissue JB62-WAL, Near-Mint, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2013 Fender Jazz Bass ‘62 vintage reissue model JB62-WAL in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. This uncommon, discontinued “Made in Japan” Jazz Bass was a limited run model produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, featuring a gloss Walnut finish and black chrome hardware.

Tonewoods include an ash body and a maple neck capped with a slab rosewood fretboard, and this JB62-WAL weighs 9lbs 3oz. The JB Single pickups deliver treble-centric growl and midrange burp in the bridge position, while smoother, broader sounds can be dialed in via the neck pickup. This JB62-WAL has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-100 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.
