NBD Fender Jazz 62 RI CIJ Ocean Turquoise

Post by specitim » 30 Dec 2017, 17:48

Always wanted a stack knob 60s JB but could never find the right one.. So decided to buy myself a CIJ 62 RI and mod it up. This is one of the more expensive Japan ones with alder body and US pups.

The control plate is a stacked knob custom build from 920d and was of excellent quality, super easy to install.

I bought genuine ashtray and neck pup covers to fit, now she's perfect!

I used to have a Japanese Ocean Marine Turquoise Jazz. I really miss the way that body looked. Great colour.

Does the control plate have the 'mixing' resistors? Very few seem to and most schematics leave them off. They are the reason the stacked knob circuit sounds darker and quieter than the standard VVT. Without them, using either tone control affects both pickups.With them, each tone control only works on that pickup, which is very cool.

Not sure tbh Greg - assume no as I didn't see any resistors just a couple of capacitors. It's this control plate here

This looks to be correct. A pair of 220k resistors from the wiper of the pot, which means the two pickups/pots/capacitors, don't 'see' each other. Same way a simple passive mixer works. I don't know you could go any lower with the resistor values?

As you have it at the moment (and the way most seem to be wired), you basically have a VVT setup, with a pair of tone controls. Either tone is a master for both pickups and you can get the sound super dark, by rolling down both. The only difference between it and a regular VVT circuit, is that you have a choice of roll off frequencies, as there is a different value cap for each tone control.

It does. Not my bass though, unless you're saying the schematic looks good. :hmm

Looks brilliant ! The Japanese basses are the way to go (IMHO). Last year I bought a fretless Bacchus BJB62-JP. Took the Momese p/u out, and put in a set of SD "Weather Report" p/u....The end result is as good as any U.S. made bass.
