I just received a Fender Custom Shop 62 P bass. I purchased it in July and got it yesterday. It is my fourth FCS. My first one was a FCS Jazz bass that I bought used and ended up selling. I am more of a P bass guy. I also had a 2014 FCS 64 Jazzmaster that I ended up selling but only because I like having 22 frets. My current FCS Jazzmaster has an American Professional JM neck on it for that very reason. I decided to get parts, make a partsmaster, and sell the FCS Jazzmaster. Which will leave me with this beaut: I love this bass. Here is the floor traveler: I sold a 63 AV and also a Hallmark guitar to buy it. So my thoughts on FCS: You get into the area of diminishing returns. i.e., Is it better than the American Original or American Vintage counterpart? Yes. Maybe. But only a little. The diff between this and the AV is roasted neck, quartersawn, roasted body, journeyman relic. Is is worth almost double or more than double the money? Up to you. Probably not. But in time, you will recover and forget it. lol. Then yes it is. A FCS sells for the price it sells for because it sells. Fender sells these things like hot cakes. If you find one that is just what you want, pull the trigger if you can. It is quite a hit to the old bank account no doubt. But they are damn cool. And you can always make more money etc. I will end up playing my partsmaster instead of my FCS Jazzmaster because it suits me better. But I am keeping the bass. I think. Pretty sure. It is too perfect. For me.
