Continuing the the tradition of amazingly styled and well-equipped Jazz basses.

The Jazz Bass debuted in 1960 and captured the essence of the era—an instrument as great sounding and groundbreaking as the decade itself. Strong, clear and versatile, it gave bassists everywhere a powerful new voice and a fast new feel that would only grow bolder in the decades that followed.

The Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer evokes the instrument in the decade of its origin, with vintage style and an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its sleekly offset alder body. Other features include an ultra-slim C-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and white-dot inlays, dual vintage-style single-coil alnico pickups, four-ply brown shell pickguard, four-saddle American Vintage bass bridge, and vintage-style reverse tuners. Tweed case included.

Comments about Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer:

I've had my eye on the Fender Jazz Bass since I was a kid watching Joe Osborn with Ricky Nelson's band and since I'm not a professional, I never wanted to put out the money for one but finally said I'll compromise and get the Classic Seires. I own curenetly 3 different types of basses and have been attached to my Washburn RB-2000 for 10 years, but this Fender is pretty awsome and versatile. I've played the American Standard and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between this Classic Series and the American Standard. This is one heck of a nice bass and I highly recomend it!!
