Here is my lovely Fender Japan FSR 62 Walnut Jazz bass. £850
This is a stunning bass to play. Very punchy sound, with more kick than my USA jazz.
The neck is a slim “C” shape with a rosewood fingerboard and exceptionally smooth and easy to play.
Weight is 8.9lbs
My drummer will be upset this is up for sale as the walnut finish matches his favourite snare drum!
The walnut finish is lovely and very tricky to photograph. The machine heads and bridge are a smokey black which matches the walnut finish superbly.
There is a small ding on the back of the headstock which is difficult to show.
it's difficult let go of this one go.
Can meet up half way, within reason - not sure if we're allowed yet. Otherwise I will post it in the UK for £60 insured.
I’ve owned an early 80s Fender Jazz Bass, an 80s Status and an 80s Jaydee and they all sounded good when new. What I’d like to know is, is it really worth spending the huge amount of money these bases command nowadays? I’m kind of seduced into the idea of buying a genuinely road worn 60 or 70 Fender Jazz but I’m not convinced it would sound much better than my current Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz.
Please enlighten me.
Hi there, can anyone help me find the right strings? I have a 1960s vintage bass (from that factory in Japan) that I have really come to like. It has a mellow woody boomy sort of sound, quite acoustic/natural in some registers, and the strings are old. I need to avoid metallic sounding, poppy, twangy strings - I want the sound to stay the same and I don't know where to start! All advice gratefully appreciated especially from anyone who has a similar bass.
A lovely early 80's Yamaha JB600R Jazz up for grabs. These are exceptional jazz basses and every bit as good as early JV Squiers IMO.
This one has a beautifully dark rosewood board and a rather fetching Larry Graham style white finish. It weighs just 8.5lbs, is perfectly balanced, sounds great and comes with a nice gig bag.
The flats currently on it aren't included (it'll come with rounds) but I seriously recommend the buyer throws some flats on it. Perfect bass tone 😍
I'd keep this one but I seem to have accidentally acquired a matching black one..
