Boasts 1960s-era cool & well-traveled looks.

Fender's Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass, like classic cars or your favorite T-shirt, shows that some things just get cooler with age. It's especially true of electric basses, and this roughed-up Jazz bass is designed to exude that same unmistakable mojo they develop over time that only makes them look cooler and feel even more comfortable than when they were brand-new. The Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass guitar was designed with 1960s specs and delivers that killer aged look, feel, and mojo-it's a true player.

Includes a gig bag.

  • Fender Road Worns are an incredible value!

    As reviewed by Thinline on 10/9/2009

    Man some of guys need to set back and chill out. I have collected high end Master Built Fender for years and for the money these Road Worn guitars are an incredible value. True, they are not aged to look as good as a custom shop guitar but they are not supposed to either. Compare apples to apples and things blow away the Highway 1's, Epiphone, or anything else in their class. Some people have a stima about Mexican Fender and while there were some inconsistancy problems years ago they are making a high quaility guitar now. The bodies are cut, painted, and assembled in Mexico but the necks are still made in the USA and shipped to Mexico for finishing and assembly. The pickups are made in Mexico and the hardware is Fender/Ping brand that it is imported probably from China however the Fender Gotoh hardware that is on all the USA and custom shop guitars is imported also and made in Japan. I have played dozens of these Road Worn guitars and each one is as different as a dozen Fender USA guitars. Some Road Worns are incredible killer guitars that are even better than their USA counter parts, some are good, and some are just ok. Just a luck of the draw how they all come together. I would reccomend buying a road worn in the store that way you can play many of them and pick out the killer one. If you mail order it you dont have anything to compare it to so you wont know the difference. There seems to be less of a variance in the Tele's than the Strats for what ever reason and all Bass' I have played were great. Also do a search for Fender Mexico and take the virtual plant tour and you will be amazed at what you see adn read. Believe it or not I have a Road Worn that I would put up any day against my team built 62 Custom Shop Strat for tone and playability.

  • Road Worn 60's Jazz Bass Is A Real Beauty!!!

    As reviewed by Tom on 8/19/2009

    I purchased a 50's RW P-Bass a few months earlier so I knew it would be good, but this J Bass exceeded even my own expectations! The finish job is great! I would say near custom shop quality. The wood is select, it's not cheaper wood. They don't scrimp on these except in one area, the electronics. The wiring is cheap and the pickups are cheap. So I ordered some Seymour Duncan Antiquity II's for it and rewired it with cloth wrapped wire and this bass purrs now! But for most people the electronics would be just fine. I am used to playing pre 1965 Fender Basses, so I expect a certain tone and I had to do what I needed to do to accomplish that, but the tone out of the box is workable. Whether you're a pick player, finger player or slapper, this bass will give you everything you want and it feels like it's a 40+ year old bass. Just wonderful!

    As reviewed by full time bassist on 7/25/2009

    I personally own an american jazz bass and i gig with it every weekend and im telling u when i went into the music store and played this bass i was amazed at the tone and how well it played.the feel of this neck is unbeleiveable like it has a thin coat of nitrocellulose laquer on it.sad thing is this bass isnt american made.but im telling you that u cant tell the diffrence in this and the real 60's jazz bass with my friends father owns...BUY THIS BASS you will like it better than the american standard i promise.
