The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Fender ’62 Reissue Jazz Bass Olympic White, 1988


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

Here we have a Fender ’62 Reissue Jazz Bass in Olympic White and with gold hardware and original style concentric controls, built during 1988 in Corona, California.

Introduced in 1960, Leo Fender’s Jazz Bass sought to win over the bass players who hadn’t yet adopted his Precision Bass and still played upright acoustic instruments. His thought was that the narrower neck and brighter pickups would appeal to jazz artists. It shared the new offset-body design aesthetics of the Jazzmaster and Jaguar models, and had a pair of new single coil pickups with individual, concentric volume and tone controls. The two concentric controls were officially dropped in 1961, in favour of three standard pots – two volumes and a master tone, but concentric models still appeared till stocks ran out.

Here we’re looking at a Fender ’62 Reissue Jazz Bass with the concentric circuit and a ‘Slab’ type rosewood fingerboard. The finish is a yellowed Olympic White, somewhat translucent like early Fender finishes, and the metal components are gold plated. It’s in good condition with light wear, and the gold plating has very little wear. Fret wear is also light.

The original Tweed hard shell case is included, and it contains all the case candy – the cord, strap, cards, polishing cloth and, of course the optional string mute kit.
