Get Smooth Vintage Looks And Sounds With The Fender Custom Shop '60 Jazz Bass Journeyman Relic In Faded 3-Tone Sunburst

Originally released in 1960, the Jazz Bass was a robust-sounding, smooth-playing successor to the P Bass. The 1960 Jazz Bass Journeyman Relic is an homage to this iconic instrument, complete with vintage-style concentric knobs, and for the purists-felt mute tips in the case candy. The two-piece alder body is crafted from tonewood selected for its lightweight and attractive grain and wears a Journeyman Relic lacquer finish, giving it the look and feel of a played but loved vintage model. The fast-playing, tinted quartersawn maple neck sports a '60s J Bass U-shaped profile, along with a modern 9.5" radius fingerboard and 20 narrow-tall frets that grant it a familiar feel. Packed with authentic Jazz Bass tone, the pair of Hand-Wound Vintage Jazz Bass pickups growl with pure power.

Other features include a 4-ply Tortoiseshell pickguard, vintage-style J Bass bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut, and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap, and Certificate of Authenticity.
