Every instrument we sell is fully set up before it goes out the door.

Fender Special Edition '70s Jazz Bass Natural

Fender's Jazz Bass first endeared itself to bassists for its brighter, midrange and treble emphasised sound, which cuts through the mix slightly better than the original Precision Bass. These changes were accompanied by a slightly narrower and more rounded neck, designed to facilitate more intricate solos and runs.

The '70s Jazz Bass is particularly pleasing, aesthetically. Black binding to the maple neck, block fretboard markers (also black), and three-ply black-white-black pickguard are perfectly set off by the natural gloss finish to the ash body and maple neck. The twin American Vintage '74 Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups faithfully produces that classic Jazz Bass sound. The '70s "C" shaped neck means it both feels and plays as it should. This fantastically evocative instrument additionally comes supplied with deluxe Fender gig bag, for easy transportation to and from gigs.
