Made in America
Pure Vintage 75 single-coil Jazz Bass pickups
1975 U neck profile
Comes with hard case
Over the course of the ‘70s, the Jazz Bass entered its “teenage years,” changing its visual style and inspiring new playing techniques—such as slapping—which led directly to new, creative forms of expression. Its smooth feel and growly midrange, tempered with a bit of treble bite, made it a hero in recording sessions around the globe. The American Original ‘70s Jazz Bass updates the smooth playing feel with a modern-radius fingerboard, while retaining the classic Fender tone and style that made the Jazz Bass the tool of choice for creative bassists.

GLOSS URETHANE FINISH
The durable, gloss urethane finish on this instrument doesn't just protect it against damage—it's also an authentic design element, straight from the 70s.
PURE VINTAGE ‘75 JAZZ BASS PICKUPS

“’70s U” NECK SHAPE
This Jazz Bass features a “U”-shaped neck profile delivered straight from the ‘70s to your hands. Remarkably comfortable, it suits any playing style.
VINTAGE-ACCURATE BODY AND NECK RADII
Original-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.
From the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.
FINGERBOARD & FRETS
This 9.5”-radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25” radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to add vibrato to your basslines.
