What we say:The thinking behind the Fender Custom Shop Journeyman guitars is to recreate the natural light wear of a guitar that’s been passed down from generation to generation but maybe not gigged too much. it’s a step away from the famous ‘relic’ finish but there are still little checks, dings and scratches as well as having slightly dull oxidised hardware.
There's plenty of metal on the face of this great looking Jazz bass: the pickup cover and bridge cover have the smallest tarnishing to simulate decades of careful playing.
It has a fairly sizeable 'U' profiled neck (quartersawn for quality and strength) which feels reassuringly substantial in the hand. It has the correct vintage radius too for a comfortable, curved playing experience.
The sunburst on this particular bass is quite bold: there's a really great confidence about the way this looks overall, added to by the tinted nitrocellulose finishing. A pair of hand wound pickups supply the smooth and balanced tone.
