Overview

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.

      Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

      When you lower the tone knobs for the separate pickups you get a little buzz. Only down side.

      Action can be set nice and low with minimal buzzing and it really has an amazing feel.

      Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

      I was the biggest Mexican Fender snob until I played this bass... In my opinion, it has it shortcomings. That being said, with a few minor investments, you can make this thing into an absolute powerhouse. First, the pickups... the pickups that come stock really aren't that bad but I ended up switching them out for the Aguilar 60's jazz pickups and experienced a very noticeable change. One of my biggest complaints with MIM Fenders is the shotty wiring job they seem to do so I switched it out with a Texas Customs BASSics control plate with oil-can capacitors (no tangible difference between oil-cans and modern day but it does add an interesting touch of authenticity and it didnt cost any extra $$ to get them). Lastly, I switched out the bridge for a Hipshot... I want to point out that I wasn't having any problems with the things I switched out on this bass, but making these few little adjustments gave me a very noticeable change. I would put this bass against any production line MIA Fender. My total investment in replacement parts still left me paying less for this than a new American Standard.

        from newyorkcity

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

        this bass is a best kept secret plays wonderfully,feels broken in.The neck is fast and smooth and sounds really vintage,chunky.
        its has that road worn look thats ok because this bass plays and sounds great.The neck is a main feature on this bass
        bass is made pretty sturdy and is light not too heavy for a jazz bass
        its worth the price in my honest opinion

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

        Earlier review I ahd taken out the original p/ups and installed fender custom shop p/uops thinking it an improvement. Well, it was only a change not an improvement. I put the originals back in for a mopre proper old school tone and sweeter dynamic range. All better. "we don't need no stinking upgrades".

        Great Bass

        By T-Bone

        from Schenectady, N.Y.

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

        I just got my Fiesta Red RW jazz in the mail and couldn't be happier with it. The distressed look is done very well, and the sound is top notch. From the worn-in feel of the neck down to the cracking on the nitro finish, it definately gives the vintage vibe for gigging money. There are a couple of minor things to be aware of though. First, the pickguard doesn't look aged like the rest of the guitar. And second, if you prefer to play without the pickguard installed, the letters "ROAD WRN" are stamped into the wood under the pickguard area. Those minor things aside, I'm on the RW bandwagon!!

        Fender will always be THE Best instrument

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

        Jaco Pastorius, Marcus miller, Victor bailey, Geddy Lee...All of these Monsters of the Bass world uses Fender buddy! I'm just writing a review on this model because this is a particular one. The sound is amazing and the vintage finish blew me away. I'm going to buy this model (3 Tone Sunburst) just to remove the Frets and make Fretless bass like Jaco did. Actually if you want a Jaco look this is it. Remove the frets and the pickguard and you will get a Jaco Model. I don't have the money to afford a Jaco Replic Custom Shop Bass so this is the cheaper way to go if you are a Jaco Fan like me.

        Fender Road Worns are an incredible value!

        By Thinline

        from Motown

        Comments about Fender Road Worn '60s Jazz Bass:

        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.
