Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Fender American Vintage ’62 Jazz Bass was built from 1999 to 2002. As part of the American Vintage series, this bass reprises the early specifications of the highly influential successor to the revolutionary Precision bass.

Dating to February of 2006, this Fender American Vintage ’62 Jazz Bass sports a nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the Alder body and rosewood fingerboard Maple neck, and has the early style concentric volume and tone controls. It is in good clean condition with a few minor dings and pressure marks to the body. Fret wear is very light, and it plays well.

The original brown tolex G&G case is included.
