Value For Money : Excellent
Made in the USA under the guidance of Custom Shop, the American Vintage sries recrent the same instruments as new taient Designed origin.
JB 1962 This is actually the first generation of cre JB Fender in 1960 and possde the particularity of having concentric knobs, one for each microphone, Premetta of rgler Tone and volume of each microphone.
There are 20 frets on a rosewood handle with Saddle.
The cehvalet is an american vintage with bridges that takes stris trs good agreement. Mcaniques are the reverse (they turn upside down) as was the era.

UTILIZATION

The handle end is trs trs enjoyable.
The acute and Access in a traditional heart JB.
Ergonomics is trs good shape (contour body) except the weight of about 4 pounds of alder.
Special thanks to the knobs, we find the right sound very easy. Too bad that Fender has abandoned this Systm end 62 to create two volumes and a single Tone always applied to the passive of the brand. It seems that the concentric knobs (knobs stack) were too expensive manufacture and Fender experiencing difficulties financires the epoch.

SOUNDS

This is the true sound of the original JB. Although roots. Lots of nice bass and the mdiums Pasto. I play on an EBS APRS pramp Aguilar external rendering is perfect.
MODEL possde my hood easel symbol of F and the neck pickup cover, and the thumb rest, placed at the bottom of the plate tortoise.
The particularity of my bass is that it does dfrette by a luthier who has filled the void of the frets by strips Rabl. This gives a great look down trs.
In super fretless growl and purr beautiful ...
It is mainly a walkin bass, but you can also slapper!
For the time between j'hsite put epoxy on the sidelines and play round threads or continue with my LaBella threads that go into flat fretless but lack a bit of treble.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few weeks after having tried many.
The concentric knobs I like a lot.
Trs good value quality - price for this MODEL U.S. with select wood and perfect finish. The tui deluxe plush orange and brown Tolex the indoor, with all the accessories era (leather strap, vintage cable, cover and hide nickel, thumb rest) is more typically as a the era.
I do not regret my choice. I would love to try the Vintage Precision in the same era as that opinion also seems to be a massacre.
