The Bass is definetly what Fender sells as a 62 . It has the stack knob or coencentric format for volume and tone controls. The Inca silvewre color and Ice blue metalic were featured in the brochure and also on Fender web site. The neck indeed had the tinted yellowed laquer Maple neck with slabboard rosewood fret board but more of a thinner slab then my original 63 jazz( that has realy become more valuable to me both musicaly and emotionaly after this recent experience). If this situation is not resolved soon and I do happen to get my money refunded .........well bye bye Fender dealers and Hello E-Bay!!!!!!!!! At least I wouldn't feel so bad doing repair on a used instrument!!!!! I hope that Fender checks this web site occasionaly.
