Get all of that classic Fender bass tone and style you've been longing for with the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass.

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.

The American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass is the perfect choice for bassists who want that classic J-Bass style and tone that helped shape the sound of music from that famed era. Painstakingly crafted in the image of actual vintage Jazz Bass models from '64, this bass brings together all of the specific features that made the four-year-old Jazz Bass stand out. For classic looks and comfort that are matched by great tone and resonance, the alder body comes dressed in an ultra-thin Fender Flash Coat Lacquer finish in your choice of old-school Fender colors. Holding true to the original, the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass sports a slimmer "C"-shaped maple neck, a 7.25"-radius round-laminated rosewood fingerboard with vintage-style frets & clay-colored dot inlays, a bone nut, and a vintage-style heel adjust truss rod.

Specifically designed and voiced to re-create the legendary sound delivered by the vintage J-Bass models from that particular year, the American Vintage '64 Jazz Bass comes fitted with a pair of American Vintage '64 Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups in the neck and bridge positions.

Other period-correct features include a set of American Vintage Reverse open-gear tuners, a 4-saddle American Vintage Bass bridge with threaded steel "barrel" saddles, a 4-bolt serialized neck plate, a mounted chrome pickup and "F" bridge cover with vintage-accurate positioning, a lower mounted finger rest, and an auxiliary strap button on the back of the headstock. Comes with the full protection of an authentic-style, period-correct hardshell case and includes a variety of in-case reproduction extras and accessories.
