2016 Fender Japan Exclusive Classic 60s Jazz Bass Black, Near Mint


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2016 Fender Japan Exclusive Classic 60s Jazz Bass in like-new condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. An uncommon model produced just before the advent of the Traditional Series and essentially in-line with the specs of the previous JB62 model, this “Made in Japan” Jazz Bass captures the look and feel of a genuine vintage example.

Tonewoods include a basswood body, maple neck, and slab rosewood fretboard, yielding a balanced, resonant acoustic platform. The single coil pickups deliver a bevy of quintessential JB tonalities, with treble-centric articulation and grind, upper midrange presence and burp, and focused low end. This Jazz Bass weighs 9lbs 8oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 45-105 roundwound strings, comfortable action, and spot-on intonation.
