Revolutionizing the world of rumble, the Jazz Bass® directly evolved from the foundation the Precision Bass® had established, with its offset body, narrow nut width and added neck pickup. The 1960 Journeyman Relic® J Bass® brandishes time-correct features like concentric stacked control knobs, hand-wound vintage Jazz Bass® pickups designed with 2 pole pieces per string to provide a mellower “jazzy” tone, and signature Fender® Custom Shop aged lacquer of a well-played classic rumble warrior.
In true Custom Shop fashion, tradition meets modern playability in this J Bass®. This bass combines a 2-piece select alder body and a quartersawn maple neck with a “ '60 J Bass® U"-shaped neck profile, slab rosewood fingerboard, 9.5" radius, and 20 6105 frets.
Additional features include period-accurate Jazz Bass® bridge with threaded steel saddles, vintage-style Jazz Bass® tuners, bone nut and round string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
