Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition P/J Bass Journeyman Relic – Aged Candy Apple Red
Weight: 3.9 kg
The Limited Edition Precision Jazz Bass Journeyman Relic combines the best of two timeless classics with all the Custom Shop style and finesse to match. What appears at first to be a beautifully worn-in Precision Bass actually has a Jazz Bass neck with a comfortable 1960-style “U” profile, slim 1.5” nut width and Jazz Bass headstock decal, letting players bask in a world of thumping Precision Bass tone with all the streamlined playability of a Jazz Bass neck. The two-piece select alder body wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, and the tinted quartersawn maple neck features a vintage 7.25”-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, white pearl block inlays and white nitrocellulose binding for a diginified look and time-tested feel.
A handwound ’65-’70 Precision Bass pickup provides vintage-accurate low-end punch, with vintage Precision Bass wiring, master volume and master tone. Other features include a four-ply brown shell pickguard, vintage-style bridge with threaded steel saddles, extra strap button on the headstock and rarely seen ’66-style “lollipop tuners”. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity.
Used but not abused.
Handed down or changed hands through the years, but mostly played around the house, with the occasional jam session or weekend gig. Has been well taken care of over the years but has finish checking, some “friendly” down-to-the-wood nicks and dings, dullish hardware, and moderate playing wear—a very lucky find.
