Some companies have to continue making new products to stay relevant in a constantly changing market, but others just had it right the first time around. This '62 Vintage Reissue P-Bass is an excellent example of something that was done right many decades ago. The finish on both the body & neck have gracefully aged into a beautiful patina. The neck is exceptionally comfortable to play & the light weight body makes the bass well balanced & easy on the shoulder. The gorgeous, dark rosewood fingerboard is smooth to the touch & so well contrasted by the vintage-style tortoise pickguard. The pickup sounds fantastic & the tone is everything we love about great Fender basses. Arriving to you with a pro set up by the experts here at Cream City Music, so you'll be able to thoroughly enjoy the newest member of your collection right out of the box.
Cosmetic Condition: Used, but not abused, with signs of typical play wear - various surface scratches & some scuff marks along with a pretty good sized chip in the top of the bass-side horn near the strap button. The Olympic White finish has matured beautifully over the years, showing off some nice variegation throughout. Overall the bass has a wonderful look to it with a super cool vibe.
Neck: Vintage-profile maple neck with dark rosewood fingerboard & cream dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with practically no wear. Open-gear nickel tuners with round string tree & strap button on the back of the headstock (just the like the vintage ones). 1 5/8" nut width; 34" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works perfectly.
Body: Contoured, solid alder body finished in Olympic White. Top-loading bridge with four adjustable "barrel" saddles & 4-ply tortoise pickguard. Bass weighs a delightful 8 lbs 10.4 oz & is exceptionally resonant!
Electronics: Split single coil with black covers. Master volume & tone controls with knurled knobs. All electronics are in perfect working condition.
Case: Newer Fender Custom Shop hardshell case included - what an upgrade!
