I bought Shaun Combs' bass in 2007. He sold it to me in fantastic condition, a 1994 model year. This has been my main bass since. It is truly special. I live in a 4-season climate, so it requires seasonal truss rod adjustments, more than my other bases. But it is well worth it. This bass has a unique warm tone that no other has. Shaun missed this bass so much that he later bought another of the same model, and you can read how much he loves it! I am glad he sold his first one to me, his loss was my gain. I had the frets leveled and it plays as well as it sounds.
I absolutely love this bass. The tone is really sweet, its just right. And lets face it, The colors and design are just perfect.
I've been playing for a little over 26 years now and in that time i've picked up a lot of originals, and seeing a brand come out with a reissue down the pike kinda makes you wonder how close it is to the real thing. Of all the basses and guitars this is tied for 1st (Gibson VOS 50's Les Paul Gold-top)when it comes to being exactly the same as its original. The tone is amazing, through my Gallien-Krueger head it sounds so warm with the low end cranked up. I am in love with this bass, I actually take the pickguard of sometimes to get the Jaco look, but when its on it looks exactly like John Paul Jones. And last but not least you just can't go wrong with the stacked-knobs and the ashtray style pickup covers. Very well done job by Fender in recreating its masterpice.
Bought this because I loved the tone, you can get a zeppeling tone out of this very easy. I got into jaco and realized this bass was 99% perfect for that, but it has frets. However I wont be pulling the frets , this is a sweet jazz bass. Sounds identical to an original but at about an tenth of the price.
This has been my main bass for the past 5 years. I play professionally in many different styles and also do a lot of studio work. The 62 Jazz is a very versatile bass. The tone is warm, round, and punchy. It sits so well in a mix. I love the look and feel of it and consistently get compliments on the tone. Very happy with it and will never get rid of it.
