Classic 60s Jazz Bass
PRODUCT#: 5251600306
$2,149RRP

Since its introduction in 1960 the Jazz Bass has proven instrumental in the development of new styles, finding a home in music as diverse as reggae, blues and hard rock. The Classic ‘60s Jazz Bass celebrates this versatility with classic style and appointments and rich, authentic sound that’s ideal for bassists who want to share the musical spotlight instead of lurk at the back of the stage.

This flexible instrument includes a pair of single-coil pickups—a clear-sounding neck pickup with airy sound matched to a tight, punchy bridge pickup. Master volume and tone controls fine-tune the pickups’ voice while the blend knob allows the pickups to be mixed to create the perfect balance for your voice. The slim “C”-shaped maple neck hosts a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for a familiar playing experience while the 1.5” nut width is ideal for fast, intricate playing. The vintage-style 4-saddle bridge, synthetic bone nut and vintage-style open-back tuners provide pinpoint intonation along the length of the fingerboard while working together for ultra-stable tuning stability whether played with a pick, fingers, or slapped.

The elegant offset-waist body is exceptionally comfortable, whether playing seated or standing, offering the classic eye-catching appointments you’ve come to expect from Fender—vintage-style black plastic Jazz Bass control knobs, large block inlays, chrome hardware, four-bolt neck plate, black pickup covers, large headstock and a three-ply pickguard are all present. A classic bass updated with modern touches, the Classic 60’s Jazz Bass is a vintage-vibe instrument designed for bold players who relish the past while keeping an eye to the future.
