Vintage Fender style and tone, with a duo of Pure Vintage ’66 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups.

The Fender American Vintage II 1966 Jazz Bass celebrates the creation of the original—the result of Don Randall at Fender Sales requesting a more sophisticated, high-end bass. The neck was narrower at the nut, providing a faster and more effortless feel, and the sleek new body style mirrored the offset contoured style of the Jazzmaster. By 1966, evolution of the Jazz Bass reached new heights with striking new features.

The American Vintage II 1966 Jazz Bass features a comfortable U-shaped hard rock maple neck, and it plays like a dream with a 7.25"-radius round-lam rosewood fingerboard and vintage tall frets. Characteristic of production in 1966, this J-Bass is offered with white neck binding, pearl dots, two volume controls with master tone, matching painted headstock and a 4-ply pickguard. The 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles, vintage-style “lollipop” tuners and Pure Vintage ’66 Jazz Bass pickups deliver classic thump and style. Comes with a vintage-style black case with orange interior.

The Fender American Vintage II series presents a remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary designs that altered the course of musical history. Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and tone.
