Fender American Original '60s Jazz Bass

Released in 1960, the upscale Jazz Bass quickly found favor among working bassists thanks to its premium appointments and versatile sound. The narrower neck seemed tailor-made for fast, dexterous playing, while the pair of single-coil pickups added a bold new dimension to Fender bass tone. The American Original 60s Jazz Bass has all the tone and style of its earliest incarnation, with modern playability.
The Pure Vintage 64 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. Theres no mistaking the sound of these pickupsfrom a deep growl to articulate punch, they are the voice of this legendary bass. The slim 60s C-shaped neck profile and 9.5-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard combine for an agile playing feel. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardwareincluding a four-saddle vintage-style bridgevintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood breathe naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.
An inspiring instrument, the American Original 60s Jazz Bass is the best way to add original-era Fender tone and style to your sound.
