    Dots. Meh.
  3. Fine just imagine some inlays of something...
  4. If that's all you see, then you've got tunnel vision. That's a beauty, T-Bird!

  6. One would think so. I would have a hard time getting around them, especially by the bridge, IMO.
  7. It would be sexier if it had block inlays and binding, but as it is, it's still pretty hot.

    how much gas could one have at 14?

    i didn't even know basses could cost more than the 400 i payed for my ibanez 3 years ago.

    '62 Reissue?

    Sexy bass.

    Only one problem, it has a pickguard ;)

    The burst is not my favorite finish - sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn't. I like it on a Sadowsky 5, but not on the Fenders...isn't that weird???

    Otherwise, that is a groovy old school bass. I am thinking about getting a 60's RI (not sunburst though...).

    It should be standard for all '62 Jazz basses to have no pickguard.

    I have a 62 MIJ RI, and it's a damn fine bass. The vintage electronics really sound big and smooth. The itsy bitsy vintage fretwire feels real nice too.
    Me, I love the 3 tone sunburst, and tort guard. The 60's version has more of a reddish tort than that one...

    Everyone knows tort is the best pickguard color:bag:
  17. Why do people judge me based on my age? Any one can have major gas at any age.

    I agree. We can hide together.:bag:

    It is sexy, but it's true, block inlays would make it sexier. I also dislike the sunburst which doesn't show the grain of the wood, the wood needs to be visible through the burst.

    Here's what I call sexy... if you keep the same "motif"
