You are looking at a Fender American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass 3-Color Sunburst, serial number V1314078. This is the actual bass you will receive should you decide to purchase. (10 lbs, 0.0 oz.)

Delving deep into Fender's rich heritage, the American Vintage series instruments give players of today an opportunity to experience the legendary tone, feel, looks and quality of classic Fender instruments from the mid-1950s to mid-1970s—all without the vintage price tag. Through extensive research and utilization of the same tooling & machinery as Fender's original instruments, the American Vintage instruments offer faithfully-recreated, vintage-accurate replicas of some of the most coveted guitars and basses in Fender history. From thinner, more authentic-looking lacquer finishes to period-correct neck shapes and specially-voiced pickups, the American Vintage series instruments are sure to take you back to the good ol' days.

Paying tribute to a legendary instrument from a fantastic era, Fender is proud to introduce the American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass, which gives today's players all the tone, style, features and appointments from J-Bass models from the mid-'70s. It sports an alder body (ash on the Natural-finish model) that comes dressed in Fender's authentic-looking Flash Coat Lacquer finish. For classic playability, the thicker "U"-shaped maple neck is capped with a 7.25"-radius maple or round-laminated rosewood 'board that houses vintage-style frets, a bone nut, and pearloid block inlays.

Under the hood, a pair of American Vintage '74 Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups dish out classic powerful, growling bass tones along with singing trebles. These pickups were specifically designed and voiced to deliver all of the vintage sonic magic of those mid-'70s vintage basses. The positioning of the bridge pickup is right up to spec with the originals.

The Fender American Vintage '74 Jazz Bass comes loaded up with all of the must-have features from '74, which includes a vintage-style 4-saddle American Vintage Bass bridge with Single-Groove Steel "Barrel" Saddles, a set of Fender '70s Vintage-Style Stamped Open-Gear tuners, a mounted chrome pickup and "F" bridge cover, an upper-mounted thumb rest, a 4-bolt serialized "F" neck plate, a walnut "Skunk" stripe, and white neck binding. Comes with the full protection of an authentic-style, period-correct hardshell case and includes a variety of in-case extras and accessories.
