VINTAGE STYLE FOR THE MODERN ERA
For players who want the style and sound of the Fenderâ€™s golden era, we created the Vintera â€˜70s Jazz Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decadeâ€”including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickupsâ€”this bass has all the growl that made the J BassÂ® famous.
For authentic 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 â€œ’70s Câ€-shaped neck has a 7.25â€-radius bound fingerboard with pearloid block inlays and 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and â€˜70s vintage-style stamped open-gear tuning machines offer original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include 34â€ scale length, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.

A classic Fender tone wood, alderâ€™s sound is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs.
â€œ’70S Câ€ NECK PROFILE
Remarkably comfortable, the â€œ’70s C”-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a vintage-style playing feelâ€”thinner at the first fret, thicker at the twelfth.
REVOICED 70S J BASS PICKUPS
We revoiced the pickups to be more â€˜70s-accurate. Theyâ€™re full of the growling, punchy tone that made Fender famous.
Featuring 20 vintage-style frets, the 7.25â€-radius bound fingerboard provides the comfortable playing feel of a vintage instrument, while pearloid block inlays are an aesthetic touch.
VINTAGE-STYLE 4-SADDLE BRIDGE
Hosting 4 threaded saddles for period-correct aesthetics, this bridge offers solid intonation and action adjustment.

A way cool touch from the â€˜70s, the open-gear tuning machines are stamped with the famous Fender logo.
