With all the style and sophistication we have come to expect from a Fender model, this Japanese Special Run Jazz Bass takes its lead from the original Jazz Bass guitars of the 60s. For many players, the Jazz Bass is a firm favourite thanks to its incredibly versatile tone and comfortable feel. As this is a limited edition with only a few made available for purchase in the UK, the Classic 60s Jazz Bass won't be around for long.
Jazz Bass Body
The luthiers at the Fender factory in Japan have selected ash to build the body, a lavish, lightweight tonewood known for a wealth of warm tones, making it the ideal choice for a Classic 60s Jazz Bass. The body has a double cutaway profile that allows every register of the neck to be easily reached, so every note is made available to you. The body has a stunning Walnut finish treated beneath a protective polyester layer.
The Classic 60s Jazz Bass is fitted with a sturdy maple neck shaped to a slim "C" profile, giving you a comfortable grip and playing feel. The 34 inch scale length neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets on offer to you. White dot inlays decorate the frets, making each transition feel effortless.
For this Special Run model, Fender have employed a pair of Vintage Style Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups in the bridge and middle positions. The single-coil jazz bass pickups contribute to the guitar's booming, powerful voice, everything you would expect from a Fender bass.
Tweaking your sound could not be easier thanks to the Master Volume and two tone control interface.
A 4-saddle vintage-style bridge is joined to the body's lower bout for a secure connection between the bass strings and the body. At the top end, the headstock is fitted with vintage-style tuning machines that uphold tuning integrity during every practice session and performance.
A black pickguard is employed to both protect and complement the elegant Walnut body finish. The Fender FSR Japan Classic 60s Jazz Bass is an outstanding limited edition bass that won't be around for long here in the UK, so don't miss out!
