Description

Details

With the P Bass establishing Fender in the bass guitar market, the Jazz Bass was free to offer something unexpected in both sound and playability, with the backing of a trusted name behind it, in an era that welcomed new ideas and new ways of thinking; the ‘60s.

The Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer recreates this exciting time in music, by offering all the strength, clarity and versatility that the instrument is known for, along with a look that captured the essence of the era, with vintage-style components and an authentically vintage gloss nitrocellulose lacquer covering both the body and the neck.

Thinner than modern lacquers, the gloss nitrocellulose lacquer used on the Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer allows the body to vibrate more freely, to offer more resonance, and therefore a more natural tone. Along with the tonal benefits, the finish is also known to age better, to give a pleasing vintage-look over time.

Construction

Along with the gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, the offset alder body of the Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer is finished in a three-tone sunburst, and accompanied by a four-ply brown shell pickguard.

Bolted to this is a thin, and supremely playable, C-shaped maple neck, which also benefits from the being coated in gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. Atop this is a 7.25-inch radius pau ferro fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and white-dot inlays, which lies between a synthetic bone nut and a four-saddle American Vintage Bass bridge.

Completing the vintage style look of the Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer is a set of Vintage-Style reverse tuners, strap buttons, 4-bolt neck plate, and truss rod nut, right down to the pair of Standard Vintage Alnico Magnet Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups, which are controlled easily with a master tone control and independent volume controls for the neck and bridge.

The Fender Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer comes supplied with a tweed case.
