With great sound and style, the Classic SeriesÈ60s Jazz Bass Lacquer captures the essence of the decade in an instrument as great sounding and groundbreaking as the era it debuted in. From Motown to British Invasion and from U.S. garage rock to late-È60s heavy rock and soul, this vintage-vibe beauty embodies that fantastic era in music, with fast feel, versatile dual-pickup tone and classic Jazz Bass looks featuring a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic vintage styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender basses that came before it in the 1950s, '60s and '70s. From the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, itÈs the very essence of classic vintage Fender bass design.
A major part of the vintage-style sound, look and appeal of this bass is its vintage-style pickups, which deliver pure bass tone, power and performance evoking the great Fender basses of the 1950s, '60s and '70s.
Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments.
