Continuing the the tradition of amazingly styled and well-equipped Jazz basses.

The Jazz Bass debuted in 1960 and captured the essence of the era-an instrument as great sounding and groundbreaking as the decade itself. Strong, clear and versatile, it gave bassists everywhere a powerful new voice and a fast new feel that would only grow bolder in the decades that followed.

The Classic Series '60s Jazz Bass Lacquer evokes the instrument in the decade of its origin, with vintage style and an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its sleekly offset alder body. Other features include an ultra-slim C-shaped maple neck, 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 vintage-style frets and white-dot inlays, dual vintage-style single-coil alnico pickups, four-ply brown shell pickguard, four-saddle American Vintage bass bridge, and vintage-style reverse tuners. Tweed case included.

  • A Very Hi Quality instrument

    As reviewed by Ken on 7/16/2015

    Ok - I wanted a classic Jazz bass, with all the right appointments, timeless look, old school feel and sound, and couldn't afford an old vintage instrument. I have a roadworn Jazz Bass, and love it. My RW is a very special feeling instrument, which should probably be buried with me, but I think I will leave it above ground for others to carry on. I bought this one, hoping it would feel, sound, etc. First impressions - Tweed case - awesome. Opened it and it smelled great! LOVE the smell of Nitro in the morning - it smells like Victory ! Bass was beautiful - nice tint to neck, handsome grain on body, nothing "WOW" - just really classy, and looks as it should. Frets - JUST right! Neck - smooth, a 16th of an inch wider than my RW, and a smidge thicker. NICE profile - NO complaints! setup was nice, but not "mine", I fixed that. Gigged it a couple of times, and as a new instrument, it will slowly feel like an old worn in pair of gloves to the hand. I LIKE it a lot. great tone, feel, balance, weight, finish, in all a fine instrument. I am so glad it is mine.
