Fender American Original '60s Jazz Bass Rosewood Fingerboard Olympic White

Fender

Introduced in 1960, the Fender Jazz Bass quickly became popular thanks to its narrow neck, perfect for fast playing and the expanded tonal possibilities of its pair of single-coil pickups. Fender's American Original series maintains that original vibe and sound, with an updated feel for modern players. With period-correct alnico V pickups, vintage-style hardware and vintage tall frets for accurate intonation that responds exceptionally well to slapping styles, this is a bass that appeals to both traditionalist and modern bassists.
