I just went for it and bought an amazing 62 jazz bass. I did my homework for the purchase thanks to all your help here on this site and the emails i got. Anyways, I'm trying to stay ahead of the game so at this point is there anything I should be doing to preserve the life of the bass or is there any common things I should look out for? Is there anything a vintage fender is known for in good or bad ways. I've owned many other basses and it sees like theres little issues you come to find out, so i expect a few things but I'm mainly looking for advice for care,and playability. Thanks to everyone who shared their knowledge with me. I'm blown away by how great this bass is.
