    Decision time (for me). To those that have owned or do. Would you go there (again)? Tone? Look? Please save the " if it speaks to you" "your decision pal" for the next guy.

    You're thinking about buying a 60's Custom Color Jazz?

    All original? How's the price? Pre or post CBS?

    I can tell you my 62 is incredible, I've only been playing bass for a short while but also own a Squire J Bass. Played a Fender USA P Bass, MIM Fender P Bass, a Carvin no clue which model, and a few other basses at different stores.

    My 62 is my absolute favorite, I don't know what it is or why but it feels better, it's more balanced, it sounds better, obviously it has the classic Fender J look.

    I don't always play vintage basses, But, when I do, I prefer the 62, Stay Thirsty my friend.
