    This is a 32" Medium scale MIJ Fender Jazz Bass. These basses aren't available to US dealers. I had to have it shipped from Japan. Fender Japan's reptuation for quality is as good or better than American Standards.

    The bass is a slightly downsized version of a '62 Jazz bass, with a 32" medium scale neck. See the picture below for a size comparison with a Am Std P bass. I bought this bass new from Ishibashi and had it brought into the US in 2009. After import duties, shipping, and currency exchange, I paid upwards of $1100. I'm the original owner and the bass hasn't left my house since I bought it in the Summer of 2009. It has been played less than a dozen times. I just don't get along with 32" as much as I'd expected.

    Bass is in excellent condition, with no dings and negligible player wear. There is some minor clear coat swirling, particularly near the E string side of the bridge pickup

    In the interest of full disclosure, there two thin, 3/4" long scratches in the clear coat at the edge of the pickguard near the E string side of the neck pickup. The scratches were the result of a minor accident with a metal watch band. I could not get the scratches to show in photographs.

    Includes the original gig bag, which is pretty basic. I will pack it well for shipping.

    Downsized, Alder body
    32" Maple neck
    Rosewood fretboard
    1.5" nut
    Average "C" profile neck
    Stock, single coil pickups
    All original hardware
    Includes original gig bag
    8 pounds 9 ounces

    Here is the official Fender Japan JB62M webpage.

    Here is the JB62M next to an AM Std P bass (the P bass is not for sale).
