NBD: '14 Fender (MIJ) JB62SS (Holy... What a unicorn!)

Recommended Posts

I been having some incredible luck finding 'unicorns' lately - First it was the left handed Kasuga 'Rick' from 1977 and now a Fender JB62SS in Vintage White. 

 

These things are incredible - Take a Jazzbass and 'shrink' it down to a 29.5" scale, make the body 15% smaller, but keep electronics, pickups etc in the same size for easy upgrades. Yum yum! 

 

This thing is so mind-blowing easy to play - 3.1Kg (6.8Lbs) and it just sound like a proper Jazz. 

 

Tonight is going to include a full setup, upgrade the bridge (Babicz) and pickups (Fralin) and of course install some proper left handed CTS pots along with an orange drop. 47

Really love these GHS balanced strings for short scale - Never had such a uniform feeling all across.
