Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst, 1982

Instrument Categories: , , ,

This Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass Sunburst was built during 1982 in Fullerton, California and looking like it was used as intended.  With a neck date of April 1982, this Fender 62 Reissue Jazz Bass is an early effort to capture the original style of the Jazz Bass. The original models were introduced in 1960 as an attempt to capture the rest of the professional bass player market that hadn’t migrated to the Precision Bass. One of the key features, aside from the Rosewood ‘Slab’ fingerboard (the fingerboard bottom is flat, rather than a veneer on a curved Maple neck) is the use of concentric pots for individual volume and tone controls. There’s also a copper grounding strap running from the bridge pickup cavity to the bridge itself.   The pickguard is an original-style faux tortoise part that looks quite good over the 3-tone sunburst characteristic of 1960’s Fender instruments.   

This bass is in overall good condition, with belt-buckle  and other wear to the back, and wear through the neck finish on the bass side around the 3rd fret showing that it was used for regularly for its intended purpose.  The headstock decal is period correct and is in great shape.   Fret wear is light, suggesting that it was used with flat or ground-wound strings, though it’s presently strung with round wounds. It plays very well and is quite lively and resonant.

The original black Fender hard shell case is included.
