Overview

Find the funk with this beautiful update of a classic

The Fender Jazz Bass seemed perfectly matched to the players of the 1970s — fast, flashy and cutting. From concert stages to recording studios, the J-Bass was at the forefront of bass exploration. Fender's American Original '70s Jazz Bass brings back that sound and vibe, and a modern fingerboard radius for easier playing. With  vintage tall frets for snappy slapping, period-correct pickups and vintage-style hardware, you'll find your funky groove with this beautiful bass.

Features

  • Solid ash body with gloss urethane finish
  • Slim, fast 34" scale maple on maple neck with vintage tall frets
  • Period-correct alnico V single coil pickups
  • Vintage-style open-gear tuners and four-saddle bridge

Catch the groove with the authentic sound of the '70s. Order yours now.
