 Product Description

Vintage-inspired J Bass from Fender

The Fender Jazz Bass entered a new era when the 1970s came around. Funk was king, and disco was moving onto the block. To get into the groove of this vibrant decade, designers of the Fender Jazz Bass made slight variations in body style, hardware, and appointments that invited new playing techniques like slapping, as well as other forms of creative expression. Players quickly fell for the changes, and the Fender '70s Jazz Bass became a live performance and recording favorite known for its midrange growl and slightly toothier treble compared with its '60s predecessor. The Fender American Original '70s Jazz Bass is a faithful homage to this iconic J Bass, featuring the same tonewoods for the body, classic appointments, and vintage hardware. Many bass players here at Guitar World have a Fender American Original '70s Jazz Bass in their lineup and love the way it grooves.

Vintage pickups kick out great tone

These Pure Vintage ’75 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups are truly period-correct with enamel-coated coil, cloth-covered output wires, and Alnico 5 magnets. The sound these pickups put out ranges from fat low end to punchy midrange to toothy treble — a beautiful sonic combination that is the foundation of Fender Jazz Bass tone. Jazz, funk, rock — this bass can cover it all with the kind of tonal styling that leaves you and your audience satisfied.

That fat, funky neck

Ask any player who has spent time with the fatter '70s U-style maple neck profile of the Fender American Original '70s Bass, and you will hear a string of descriptors ranging from deep and balanced to one of a kind. With a 9.5" radius and a bound maple fingerboard with vintage-tall frets, this neck sits beautifully in the hands and features a touch and response dynamic that opens wide the doors of stylistic exploration.

  • 4-saddle Pure Vintage '70s bridge with single groove saddles provides amazing support for staying in tune
  • '70s U-style maple neck profile sits balanced in your hand inviting stylistic exploration
