I have a JM66.
I don't know about the 62 reissue, but the pickups on these aren't actually Jazzmaster pickups. Rather, they're just strat coils in a JM pup cover (tall thin coils as opposed to short fat ones).

They're trebly, which is not always really such a bad thing. You can always replace the pups anyway.

EDIT: And build-wise, they're great. One of my most favourite guitars I have so far. However on my guitar it seems like the tremolo lock is broken, as I got it from the factory...Odd. Seems like a one-off thing though, I haven't noticed anyone else having the same problem (maybe I should go ask them if I could replace it...).
I have a ponytail fetish.
..And a labcoat fetish. SCIENCE!

Build quality and playability wise, on par with MIA.

Electronics are shite though, theyre just CIJ jag pickups under a bigger cover. Mostly the bridge pup that needs replacing though. Rewiring, wax potting, shielding are worth doing and not expensive.

^You need to set the trem lock up.
I dont believe it comes working stock.
