For players who want the style and sound of the Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ‘70s Jazz Bass. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this bass has all the growl that made the J Bass famous. For authentic tone Fender re-voiced the pair of single-coil Jazz Bass pickups to sound more like the originals. Gritty and growling, they have the tone that made the J Bass popular. The “‘70s C”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius bound fingerboard with pearloid block inlays and 20 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, 4-saddle bridge with threaded saddles and ‘70s vintage-style stamped open-gear tuning machines offer original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability.
Cosmetic Condition: Excellent overall condition. This bass has a few minor surface scratches, but these are quite small and only show in direct light. Plus, it comes with fresh strings and low action, courtesy of Cream City Music's signature setup.
Neck: Maple neck with Thin "C" profile, pau ferro fingerboard, 34" scale, 20 Vintage frets, 7.25" fingerboard radius, and White Pearloid Block inlays.
Body: Alder body finished in Inca Silver. 3-Ply Black/White/Black pickguard, 4-Saddle American Vintage Bass bridge, and nickel/chrome hardware.
Electronics: 2 Vintage-Style '70s Single-Coil Jazz Bass pickups with neck and pickup Volume knobs, plus Master tone knob.
Case: Original Fender gig bag included.
Weight: 8 lbs. 15.8 oz.
