1983 Fender Fullerton ‘62 Reissue Jazz Bass 3-Tone Sunburst
Case: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: This bass has been played hard and has plenty of wear and mojo. There are chips and wear through the finish as well as plenty of scratches and dings throughout. See our listing photos for a detailed look at the bass. Very good condition.
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Tech Notes: This bass came to us with older EMG pickups, we decided to rewire the guitar with Fender Custom Shop 60's Jazz Pickups, and new high quality potentiometers and a NOS .047uF capacitor. These pickups sound incredible in the bass. We restrung the bass with quality D'Addario XL strings of 45-100. The bass is playing at a nice medium action of 7/64" on the low E and 6/64" on the high G. The neck has slightly uneven relief with just a bit more relief on the high G side and slightly less on the low E side. Additionally, this bass has a bit of a "ski ramp" at the highest frets and frets 17-19 fret out. To help alleviate the issue we made a partial neck shim for the pocket out of solid maple, specifically partial to help counteract the ramp at the end. From frets 12-17 it is very playable but with a little buzz. From 1-12 it is extremely playable and a joy to play, both comfortable and little to no buzz. It appears the control plate is not original, and the finger rest and neck pickup ashtray cover is missing. G tuner slightly bent, doesn't affect anything.
