70s Jazz Bass, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, 3-Color Sunburst
The Essence of the ’70s Jazz BassFrom hard rock to slap-and-pop funk, the '70s Jazz Bass captures the essence of the 1970s with striking looks and a bright, full sound still prized today by bassists everywhere. That decade saw the bridge pickup moved closer to the bridge, creating a brighter, more cutting tone, and the elegant addition of neck binding and block fingerboard inlays. That's all offered in this authentically styled instrument loaded with vintage vibe and modern performance.
- Maple neck with thicker 1970s “C” profile and “bullet” truss rod system
- 7.25”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and pearloid block inlays
- • Dual vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups with period-correct bridge pickup placement
- Vintage-style four-saddle bridge
Classic Vintage Styling
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic vintage styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender basses that came before it in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. From the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic vintage Fender bass design.
A major part of the vintage-style sound, look and appeal of this bass is its vintage-style pickups, which deliver pure bass tone, power and performance evoking the great Fender basses of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.
Bound Neck with Block Inlays
The elegant high-end look of a bound fingerboard with block inlays first appeared on Fender basses in 1966 and is considered a classic Fender design element, especially on 1970s-era Jazz basses. That stylish look is re-created here in authentically vintage detail.
