Fender Custom 63 Closet Classic Relic Jazz Bass Features...
Whilst trying to age this guitar we discovered something quite interesting on the neck... the Luthiers handwriting clearly labelling it #2 of 30!
Anybody who's ever played a Custom Shop Relic will know just how good they are, both visually and in terms of performance - this one is no different. Designed to recreate what an original 63 Jazz Bass would look like today if it had been barely played but spent most it's life in storage as part of a collection (hence the name), it features a gorgeous Lake Placid Blue finish with heavy lacquer checking, a few minor dings to the body, a nicely worn maple neck, vintage reverse tuners and aged chrome and plastic parts.
The Custom Shop strive to use original materials, tooling and production methods from the 60's wherever possible and have stuck to the exact design specification of the original. What we have then is Jazz Bass that looks, sounds and plays like the bass that made history, however... as this is actually less than 10 years old, you know you can trust it's reliability PLUS you don't have to be quite as cautious with it as you may with an original, meaning you can get on with what important - PLAYING IT!
