Got a Fender!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by KeithBMI, Sep 2, 2005.

  1. Here's the story. I went into a local Guitar Center a few months ago looking for a Fender Deluxe Jazz in sunburst. There were none in stock and the sales person checked the other 100+ stores to see if he could get one shipped over. Nothing. He called Fender. They didn't even have one in their warehouse. So he told them to "custom" build me one. He said it would be here at the beginning of September, but he called a day later saying it wouldn't be here until the end of the month.

    Well. I got a call today saying he got it in early! After I write this I will be on my way to Guitar Center to pick it up. I know this thread doesn't exist without pics, but I will be too happy to write about it.

    I will have pictures in an hour or so... YAY! :hyper:

    *edit* He let me use the one they had in the store (black) until the sunburst one got here. You can find pictures of that all over this board. I have a new love for the salespeople at Guitar Center, they are soo laid back.

    The 62 RI is amazing, love the stacked knobs. I'd throw the pickup covers on it too!

    I ditched the nasty stacked knobs a long time ago, just haven't taken a more recent photo. I tried the neck pickup cover, but it prevents me from playing over that pickup, which is where a lot of the best tones are.
