The Fender American Original '70s Jazz Bass pays homage to those sought-after Jazz Basses that were produced between the second and third decades after its introduction. Pairing vintage-accurate features with a modern fingerboard radius, the American Original '70s Jazz Bass also sports a set of period-correct pickups for that classic Jazz Bass sound. And really, what would this Jazz Bass be without vintage-style hardware? If you're a modern bass player who craves vintage style and tone, the American Original '70s Jazz Bass is the ultimate fit.

Vintage Accuracy with a Modern Touch
From vintage-correct body radii to a thick '70s "U" maple neck with vintage tall frets and block inlays, the American Original '70s Jazz Bass screams classic feel and elegance. Instead of the old-school 7.25" fingerboard radius Fender's are known for, Fender incorporates a flatter 9.5"-radius fingerboard to give this traditionally-appointed bass guitar a more modern playing feel.

Authentic '70s-Style Pickups
The American Original '70s Jazz Bass comes fitted with a set of Pure Vintage '75 Jazz Bass pickups to serve up all that low-end punch, midrange growl, and treble bite that the '70s J Basses are known for. Independent volume controls for each pickup and a master tone give you the ability to tailor your sound to preference while the convenient thumb rest that sits slightly above the middle pickup ensures maximum playing comfort.

Classic Hardware
Remaining faithful to the originals, the American Original '70s Jazz Bass comes complete period-correct nickel/chrome hardware, which includes a 4-saddle Pure Vintage '70s bridge with single groove saddles and Pure Vintage '70s Fender logo tuners.
