OVERVIEW

A special factory run of a unique and rare finish on a legendary bass.

Fender’s classic, yet seldom-seen Antigua finish returns for this special Antigua Jazz Bass model. The distinctively shaded body hue debuted in the late 1960s and was briefly revived with a more graduated greenish tint in 1977, when it first appeared on a Jazz Bass (on both body and pickguard). Antigua-finish Fender instruments have appeared only sporadically since the late 1970s and are rare finds now prized by discerning collectors worldwide. The Antigua Jazz Bass has all of the amazing contemporary features and refinements that help the Jazz Bass live up to its legendary name. This new special-edition Antigua Jazz Bass is available only in limited quantities and is an authentic evocation of one of Fender’s most historically exclusive finish options.

      Comments about Fender FSR Antigua Jazz Bass:

      The finish is beautiful. The pickups are clear and punchy. The tone knob really gives you a lot of options for your sound. The bass is balanced well and is comfortable to play. I highly recommend this instrument.

        Comments about Fender FSR Antigua Jazz Bass:

        Guess I'll start by saying that I'm a Musicman guy. Owned lots of Fenders, and had issues with them all. Only ones I ever kept were a Jaguar (which I had to do some work on), and a Modern Player Tele, which I love the looks and sound of, but that had a bunch of issues that needed tending to.

        I was on the fence about making this purchase, but really felt I needed a jazz bass in my collection, and took a chance, mostly because I loved the way it looked. I also wanted to get one before they sold out. I've heard there were only 250 made.

        Not too long ago I purchased an American made Highway One jazz, and while it sounded great in the house, when I brought it into a band situation it sounded a lot thinner. Also took on new character that I didn't like when I dug in and played hard. Add to that the fact that the frets were sharp on the edges, and well... I got rid of it. Was concerned as to how a Mexican made Fender was going to hold up to that US made one, and I have to admit, I'm blown away. I believe Fender is doing something to finally up their game. The bass feels solid as any bass I've ever picked up, the action is super low and buzz free, neck feels awesome with no sharp edges, and the tone is more than I was hoping for. Can be sweet, thick and mellow, or get realy gnarly and growly when I dig in. It's got more than enough highs, plenty of bottom, not thin sounding at all, and gives me lots of versatility.

        As I said in the beginning I've owned a bunch of Fenders (American made, deluxes, Mexican, Japanese, even a 70s P bass) and this is the only one yet that I'm completely satisfied with.
