Retro styling & classic tones
This is one of the new reissue Jansen Beatbass guitars and it’s a killer! Jansen made heaps of guitars and amps during the 60’s guitar boom in New Zealand. These reissues have captured the vibe and are constructed well with very playable necks and great-sounding pickups! Attention to detail is excellent. The Alan Entwhistle pickups sound amazing and have tons of tone to boot!
