Fender Japan PB62 Precision Bass Old Lake Placid Blue F S from Japan
Fender 5 String Left Handed Jazz Bass With Onboard Audere 3 Band Active Preamp. We Lefties Know How Hard It Is To Find A Genuine Fender 5 String Made For Us And Active To Boot! Here's Your Chance.
Up for your consideration is a darn near mint condition, Made In Japan 5 string Jazz Bass in Antique White with Tortoise Pickguard. Most of us already know of the fine reputation plus ultra high quality of basses and guitars from Fender Japan. They actually seem to care about the seemingly always neglected left handed Fender enthusiast by offering us many model choices. This bass has been owned by me from day one and has never been gigged. The only time this beauty has been out of my house was to have Mark Barter, owner of "Sunburst Guitars" hand cut and mount the genuine Alaskan Mammoth Ivory nut. The body is solid Alder with the traditional Fender vintage style two pickup routes. Not like the newer Fender USA and Mexican bodies that have the large trench cut to connect the two pickup routes for easier wiring. The new way they route the bodies means less wood which to me means less tone and sustain. I'll bet Leo wouldn't have liked it either. The solid Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard is expertly crafted, feels superb in your hand and is a joy to play. It is 1 3/4 inches wide at the nut which is fairly thin for a 5 string. About the same width as a standard 4 string Precision so it won't feel like a 2x4 in your hand. It has a 9 inch radius, a slim back contour plus is the standard Fender 20 frets so it will feel familiar especially for you 4 string Jazz Bass players.
The Audere Z-Mode active preamp is a compact but powerful unit which replaces the standard Jazz Bass control plate housing. The entire unit fits right under the control plate and knobs. Just unscrew the 3 control plate screws for fast and easy battery replacement. The control knobs have been upgraded to black and are simple to adjust. The three knobs control Volume, Mid/Balance stacked and Treble/Bass stacked. There is also a three position switch which is very similar to the MusicMan arrangement. Center is normal, almost passive but with a boost. To the right is a very smooth and creamy, deeper bottom mode plus to the left is much more bright. There is even a cool blue light that comes on when you first plug in your instrument cord to tell you the battery strength.
