For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ’60s Jazz Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with recreated ’60s pickups this bass has all of the growl that made the J Bass famous.
For authentic, original-era tone we re-voiced the pair of single-coil Jazz Bass pickups to sound more like the originals. Gritty and growling, they have the tone that made the J Bass popular. The Mid ’60s C-shaped neck has a 7.25″-radius fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and reverse, open-gear tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include 34″ scale length, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.
