Introduced in 1960 as their top of the line bass guitar model to partner the new Jazzmaster six string, the Fender Jazz Bass has become a staple of studio and stage, with its dual pickup configuration and slimmer nut width making it both more comfortable and more versatile than other electric basses on the market.
This 1976 is a typical example of a late '70s Jazz Bass, showcasing both the aesthetic and manufacturing changes that came in to place during the CBS era. This Jazz Bass features an Alder body with a Maple neck and Maple fingerboard. The body is finished in a sleek black with the kind of play wear and patina that gives this bass a great vintage vibe. The neck features the '70s 3 bolt design, along with the block pearl neck inlays and binding that make these basses look so cool.
